On the small, touring van area of our camp site in Snowdonia, there are 9 pitches with electric hook ups suitable for smaller motorhomes, caravans and the odd small tent on the upper part of our site. Winter access is easy and comfortable as the van pitches are hard standing and our wash block is heated. In summer, there are a few grass pitches with electric hook up for tent campers but there is much more space for tents – but no electric hook ups – on our lower tent only camping fields which are open 1st May – 30th September.
The site is surrounded by the dramatic scenery of Snowdonia National Park – watch the shadows race over the mountains and the ebb and flow of the Mawddach Estuary. Shelter is provided by oak, birch and rowan trees and hill sides covered in heather and moss. The two “panorama pitches” have the best views but there are benches overlooking the view for everyone to enjoy. There is also a communal camp fire area with fairy lights in a sheltered glade in the woods.
There is direct access down a steep track (unsuitable for people with mobility issues) through the meadows and woodland of the lower tent camping fields to the Mawddach Cycle Trail along the estuary. The wildlife here is wonderful – regularly seen (or heard) on site are owls, bats, buzzards, woodpeckers, jays, house martins, wagtails and even nightjars. With rugged scenery and rocky outcrops around the site, it’s advisable to bring sturdy tent pegs (we usually have rock pegs for sale in reception)!
You can choose from 2 panorama pitches, 3 standard pitches or 2 small van pitches to best accommodate different sizes of touring vans, caravans and tents. Pitch types are designed to create more breathing space between pitches at peak times. We are sorry but on this part of the site there is not space for additional gazebos, events shelters etc. Early booking advised for the two panorama pitches with the best views!

If you are looking for splendid isolation you can find it on our tent only camping fields as the touring van site is much smaller with pitches closer together. But if you are looking for a small, clean and quietly sociable site in a great location, then we hope you will enjoy Graig Wen.
