A huge, family-friendly, tent-only campsite amid the hills of Snowdonia, five minutes' drive from Betws-y-Coed

Big mountains. Big lakes. Big forests. Big appeal. That’s Snowdonia in a nutshell and now you can add to that list, ‘big campsite’. For Camp Eryri, which takes the national park’s Welsh name, is vast; spread across some 20 acres of grassland in the flat floor of the Conwy Valley. That’s the equivalent of 15 football pitches – albeit football pitches with two beautiful oak trees in the centre – and it’s certainly enough room that, even with over 100 tents pitched up, there’s buckets of space to enjoy.

Opened for the first time in 2021, Camp Eryri is a pop-up campsite in a field usually reserved for hay making. It’s a simple, spacious site, where children make their own fun and the national park is your playground. The campsite is solely geared around tent campers.

Across the valley is Gwydir Forest, covering a steep hillside, while, along the valley bottom, the A470 tracks the rough course of the river, making the campsite remarkably convenient for going, well, pretty much anywhere in the northern half of Snowdonia. The market town of Llanrwst and the cute, outdoorsy, riverside town of Betws-y-Coed are each two miles away (to the north and the south respectively) and it’s 12 miles (half an hour’s drive) to the popular starting points for walks up Snowdon and Cwm Idwal. The coast, too, is a similar distance, with Conwy and Llandudno worth exploring if you’re here for long enough to leave the mountains, while families particularly enjoy the convenience of Zip World Fforest, a zip-lining and hire-wiring adventure centre in the trees, which is less than a mile down the road.

This site is now closed



The camping field is flat and some 20 acres in size. There are 22 showers and over 40 toilets, along with refuse, recycling and water stations. Two friendly members of staff live on-site, so there's pretty much always someone present when needed. Campfires are not permitted and there is no electricity.

Suitable For

Couples, families, small groups, tents, dogs (on leads) – yes. Campervans, caravans, noisy folk, stag and hen groups – no.


It's less than a mile down the road to popular Zip World Fforest (01248 601444) in Coed Hafod Woods, where you can go on 'zip-line safaris' between the trees and clamber on treetop nets and swings. More extreme Zip World Slate Caverns (01248 601444), is a 12-mile drive away in Blaenau Ffestiniog, too, home to one of the longest zip lines in Europe, as well as a subterranean playground inside the caves – Bounce Below – with trampolines strung across the caverns. As locals know, most good walks around these parts are best started with a quick drive to either Llanrwst and Betws-y-Coed (or hop on the number 19 or T19 bus just up the road from the campsite). From both towns, there are good cycle trails into the woods, while walks up the best-known peaks of the area – Snowdon, Glyder Fawr, Carnedd Llewelyn – all start around 12 miles (half an hours’ drive) away. It's also around the same distance to the north coast, where the walled town of Conwy, with it's harbour and overlooking castle (0300 025 2239), are well worth visiting, as is the Victorian waterfront and pier at Llandudno – hike up the Great Orme headland beside the town for the best views.

Food & Drink

It's pretty much equidistant to Llanrwst (two miles north) and Betws-y-Coed (two miles south). In the latter, try Y Stablau (01690 710011), for a good local pub with plenty of outdoor space, or, for something a little different, the Welsh tapas at Olif (01690 733942), while, in Llanrwst, you'll find the award-winning Asha Balti curry house (01492 641910), Tir A Mor fish and chip shop (01492 640421) and the most-photographed tea rooms in Britain, Ty Hwnt i'r Bont (01492 642322).

Waste of time

Don’t know where to start really, Having travelled 5 and a half hours to get there, once arrived we pulled along side the site, didn’t even pull on we had seen enough. The toilets they claimed to have many off wasn’t no where to be seen except one block. The shower blocks they claimed to be spotless again one block and you could smell from the road side. however if you like listening to cars at 70/80 mph coming past this is definitely the site for you. The check in point was under a gazebo by the looks of it the site is run on very basic budget terms which is fine but don’t advertise as some great camping place when I wouldn’t let a flock of sheep stay there. Don’t waste your time guys pay that bit more and book a hotel life lesson learnt 😂🤷‍♂️

Autumn break

My son wanted to spend a few days in walking in Snowdonia before leaving for university. We booked three nights at Camp Eyri because of its beautiful location, easy access to Snowdon and spacious layout. We weren't disappointed - after a very friendly welcome, we invited to pitch wherever we liked - the only issue was picking a spot as we had so much choice. We chose a spot right at the back, so had minimal noise from the road and easy access to the second set of loos, with just a slightly longer walk to to the showers and washing up facilities. Portable loos and showers were kept spotless and we never had to queue (although there were at one point only four other tents on the entire site!) The site was very peaceful, day and night with fabulous views of the stars on a clear night. We liked it so much, we added an extra day onto our stay and look forward to hopefully visiting again in the future.

Great location, friendly staff, thank you

A very basic campsite but in a stunning location. Toilets and showers were clean and perfect for what we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful and the campsite was so quiet and peaceful. Would definitely go back. Thank you.

Great reception, flat, clean facilties

Camp Eryri, is a great place to pitch your tent. You couldn't get a flatter field. Do no sliding /rolling lol. Facilities were clean and plenty of. The people on reception were extremely pleasant and helpful. Definitely be camping here again in 2022 😀

Great Little Campsite

Had a great 4 night stay here. Super friendly and helpful staff. Clean Toilets and Hot Shower!!! Great location to explore Snowdon National Park.

Great little site

Perfectly situated just outside Betws y Coed and down the road from zip world. It's a great start point for visiting Snowdon etc. The ground is nice and flat and when we went (September) there was plenty of space. The site is really clean and the staff are friendly. There are toilets (with music) and showers. However, these are fairly basic. They serve a purpose but don't expect too much. There are flushing toilets between 7pm and 9pm. Still highly recommend if you don't need all the luxuries. Will definitely use it again.

Not too bad

Site clean , no water in toilet block for personal washing only showering, flushing loos only between 1900 and 2100.
Sep 4, 2021 by Nigel Ward Verified Review

Simple and Easy, though a little noisy

Good location, good views, toilets only open between 7-9pm for cleaner business and such to flush. On a main road so some traffic noise too. Overall a fair price for a fair camping spot with friendly staff.

Great site, really scenic.

Great site, really scenic. Burger van was a god send after a late arrival. Toilets were kept really clean. Love that the camping was around the edge of the field so the kids could play in the middle. Just some advice, ground is hard so take strong pegs, and it’s really really cold at night.

Great campsite!

Huge field with loads of space with good clean facilities. Each pitch staked out with plenty of room either side. Morning and evening food wagon with great food. Also an on site manager to answer any camper questions.

Good atmosphere. Safe. Friendly. Beautiful.

Great location in the Snowdonia park. Great access to tourists hot spots. Lovely camping atmosphere. Friendly and welcoming staff. Generally a good stay. However, some observations. Facilities not clean throughout our stay. Dogs not kept on leashes as per campsites guidelines. Bins over flowing.

Fantastic campsite

Great weekend had, toilets and showers were all clean, pitches separated, breakfast/burger van for food on site! We went as a group to tackle mount snowdon for sunrise and it is one of the best campsites I’ve stayed at all summer :)

Perfect pop up campsite in a great location!

Warm welcome from the hosts who were very accommodating when we explained we had booked several pitches. Showers were clean and warm water worked well, toilets weren't particularly great and started to smell towards the end of the weekend but good enough. The food vans were excellent!

Top quality Campsite

Great location just outside Betws Y Coed, loads of space to camp, and the facilities for a pop up campsite were top notch. Perfect for a simple weekend away with no fuss.

Huge campsite, friendly staff but noisy

We stayed here for three nights. Negative: Although the campsite was meant to be quiet after 10pm we were woken up each night by people talking into the early hours of the morning. Then at 7am onwards the generator could be heard, which powered the mobile pop up shop that served food until 8pm. The porteloo toilets were more often than not blocked. Positive: the staff were friendly. The showers were decent. The campsite is situation half way between Betws-y-Coed and Llanrwst with lots of nice walks near by.

An amazing stay

The management team at the camp were amazing, they welcomed us and the owner Christian I believe was his name was lovely to talk to and explained the rules of the camp very well. The facilities provided were clean, looked after and the showers were hot which was very welcomed since we hiked for most of our time there. The camp was nicely spaced out with ample room so you’re not too close to anyone else and everyone was quiet or far away enough where any noise being made was barely but background noise. The food on sight was delicious with lots of locally sourced produce! Would definitely recommend to stay when they’re open ✌🏼

This place was really bad, let's start with the toilets they literally stink and not just the portable ones, the flushable ones too. The toilets are disgusting and very poor hygiene. Next, the grass was so long Everytime I went for a walk my feet would get soggy and cold. One of my experiences in the toilets were poo on the floor of the toilet, disgusting odour and dirt on the seats. It was quite a tight space and a waste of money if you ask me.

Incredible location great atmosphere

The location of the campsite is amazing with awesome views. the site has a huge area to camp in and a good system for keeping pitches out of each others way. however the toilets were mostly portaloos and the flushing ones were not fantastic being the only downside to the site.
Aug 30, 2021 by Chris Hayes Verified Review

Left after 1 night of a 4 night booking

The actual field is well kept and in a nice location. It’s handy for local attractions. But the toilets and wash facilities are very poor-so poor we left next day. They should be much better for the price we paid, nearly £200.

This camp site has everything you need.

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at Camp Eryri. It was very easy to find and located very closely to Betws’y -coed which has a petrol station, local shops and restaurants. After checking in with a friendly guy at the entrance of the site we drove to a pitch of our choice and set up camp. The pitches are large enough that you dont feel on top of your camping neighbours. The flushable toilets were nice and clean and were open 7-10pm only, all other times there were clean portalo’s. The shower block was clean and the water was very warm. Very much appreciated after a full day of hiking. We had no issues with noise apart from the last night when our neighbours were leaving for a sunrise hike up Mt Snowdon, we wasn’t kept awake for to long though. We had no issues with midges or any other bugs or insects and the scenery around the camp site was lovely. On the weekend we had the added bonus of 2 food vans that did breakfasts and dinners, a lovely touch we felt. The grass was kept short and tidy and the refuse area was also well kept. A great camp site for local attractions and some further a field. We travelled locally to Snowdon and surrounding areas as well as Mt Cadair Idris and Isle of Anglesey. We would highly recommend this camp site and will definitely be visiting again.

Perfect place for rest and enjoy

it was my first trip to the campsite but the impressions are unforgettable. beautiful views, nice atmosphere. the perfect place to relax. I came with my partner and dog, we didn't have any problems or comments. nice service, cleanliness in the toilets. toilets were cleaned every morning and toilet paper was added. additionally, there is a foodtrack in the middle, delicious food. views worth coming. I sincerely recommend this place and we will definitely come back there again

Perfect base for Snowdonia!

Everything about this campsite was great - the staff were friendly and welcoming; the facilities were perfectly adequate (better than I was expecting, honestly!); the location was perfect for Betws-y-coed, Snowdon, and ZipWorld Forest; the Burger Bay van on site was delicious and reasonably priced. I would gladly stay here again!

Toilet not good at all

Lots of space, but grass too long, toilet very smelly , men shower has no electricity, dark.

Great location and venue

Really enjoyed our stay stayed for 4 nights and had a great plot . Plenty’s of showers and toilets which are Porter loos can be bit smelly but what can you do they managed and cleaned them daily the staff where extremely helpful and friendly. Miles give us all the help we needed . The location is perfect for different things 25mins from beach and 20mins from snowdain. Great large site with nice views of the mountains. Only thing to improve would be to be able to check in earlier as felt lost the first day after checking in and setting up .

Excellent pop up site

I was delighted with Camp Eryri. With it being a pop up site I had some trepidation about what to expect but I needn't have worried. We had a wonderful time. The pitches are spread out over a huge field and clearly marked. The pitches were flat and even and I didn't have any problems with rocks. There were plenty of portaloo toilets. Showers were in blocks. There were also 'posh' toilets that had lights in to use in the evening. Everything was hygienic and kept clean. The staff were always on hand and very friendly. I loved the atmosphere of the camp. It felt more like a festival than more formal sites. The views were terrific. It was lovely waking up in the morning and being surrounded by hills and greenery. The pitches are all around the edges so there is a huge area in the middle for children to play. My 9 year old son had a great time making friends and playing football etc. The site is within a couple.of miles of both Betws-y-Coed and Llanrwst with shops and takeaways available. Zip World Fforest is also within walking distance. Snowdonia is only a short drive so you're never short of places to visit. My only regret was we only booked for 4 nights! We will definitely be back next year if it pops up again. Thank you Team Eryri.

Great location, basic amenities

You can forgive a lot if the showers are good, and at Camp Eryri they’re the best thing, after the location. Sinks are not an option, other than 2 for washing up (cold water unless you fill a bowl from a preferably vacant shower). The field is vast with great views all around. Pitches are round the edge though and slap next to each other, so it is guy ropes touching and you may have neighbours rocking up after 9 to set up. Great place if you don’t mind basic amenities. Tir a Mor Fish and Chips at Llanrwst (2 miles) is strongly recommended.

Great site

I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in August. There were lots of roomy spots to pitch on nice level ground. We never felt over crowded even on the weekend. There's plenty of facilities so we were never queuing for the bathroom or (hot!!)showers and they're kept much cleaner than a lot of campsite bathrooms. The food truck was a delicious added bonus too! There's lots of outdoor/adventure activity type things 5-30mins drive away, and of course the big peaks of Snowdonia are just as close for hill walkers. Highly recommend.

Good location for Betswy coed and zipworld

We stayed for two nights at Camp Eeyrie as we struggled booking a site at short notice during the school summer holidays. The site is a large open field with marked pitches,unfortunately we didn't arrive until late after work and the best pitches were taken with some people spilling onto the adjacent ones . We had to pitch near the road and there was definitely road noise. The toilets were festival type and another block which was open part time .They were kept pretty clean .The showers were surprisingly good nice and warm with good pressure . All in all perfectly adequate for no frills camping especially if you need to book at short notice .Try to get a pitch away from the road

Lovely experience

We had a lovely experience! My main query was the showers/ toilets but they were both clean for majority and also showers were really warm, thankfully we only experienced a lot of noise one of the nights as a young group next to use decided to pitch there tents the wrong side of the pegs so maybe a little more control needed over where people park/ pitch up. They also proceeded to leave chicken bones all in the grass and there bags of rubbish but I suppose you always get that one group of guests that have little respect for other campers! Apart from that one night it was otherwise a pleasant experience and close to a lot of local attractions , we came for a walking holiday with dogs so was ideal.

Spacious field and big skies

A warm welcome with info on decent services. I appreciated the hosts local knowledge when asked for

Good flat site with beautiful scenery

It was in a beautiful location and great land for pitching the tent. Had a van available for breakfasts and dinner and showers were nice and warm. However, there were only portable loos available throughout the day and “posh” toilets open 7-10pm. It was quite noisy with large groups of families and children running about after 10pm with flashlights. Other than that we had a nice stay and the staff were really friendly and welcoming.

Good stay

We recently stayed for 2 nights in the campsite. Check in was easy, staff were friendly and there was plenty of space for us to choose a pitch. Campsite was in a convenient location and had some beautiful views. Only downside were the portaloos and toilet facilities. Although they were well-maintained with frequent replacing of toilet paper/hand towels, there were no lights in them which meant taking a torch at night and the sinks didn’t work in the ‘posh’ toilets. However, overall we had a great experience and hope to be back one day :)

great spot

Nice big field with tents organised in a circle around a big tree. It didn't feel we were on top of each other so much. Shower and loos were pretty clean each time we used them. Happy to have found this spot very last minute and would recommend it.

Quiet and good location

Had a good experience at the camp site. Plenty of room, and was quiet (no loud groups) Great location to explore snowdonia. Would be good if firepits were available. Would come back again. Thanks

Great all round camping site.

A superb find, perfect location, nice set up - simple but well thought out and great hot showers.

Disappointed with facilities

Arrived to stay for a week and sadly it wasn’t as it sounded and looked on the website. I didn’t have great expectations but given the reviews saying it was well kept and clean, I was at least expecting that. The photos give the impression of a nicely mowed field. Unfortunately the grass is quite long so when you walk to the toilets which depending how far from them you are, it can be a bit of a walk, your feet get soaked by the long grass. I was wearing a pair of sketchers but they are now soaked through. If it was mowed it wouldn’t be a problem and would make the site much nicer. The toilet block stinks! There was no toilet paper in any of those toilets. In the portable toilets there was toilet paper in some but no hand soap anywhere. We tried both sets of toilets but they were either empty or missing completely. Given there’s currently a pandemic that’s quite poor! We have only just arrived so we’ve not used the showers yet. The location is good, it’s not far from Betws y Coed. It’s just a shame the temporary toilets aren’t better maintained. There may be logistical reasons why but it’s also a shame the toilets and showers aren’t more central for all tents. They are near the road so it’s quite a walk from the other side of the field. By the time we arrived, any locations nearer had been taken.

Response from Camp Eryri

Hi Nicky, I must wholeheartedly apologise for your experience.
I would have responded to your email privately as I see you emailed us first with these issues as you wanted to let us know "instead of just posting a bad review", but as you took the decision to do it anyway, I am of course keen for people to see our response and how I plan to put it right, being our only two star review.
A few things:
- You are correct there was no hand soap in the toilets - we have hand wash stations directly outside of them.
- It rained on Sunday the day you arrived. The grass was therefore wet. There is also morning dew, which is to be expected. Looking at our other campers wearing suitable footwear combating this moisture (as they are holidaying in the mountains), Sketchers would struggle to stay dry as this is not what they are designed for. Sadly, we cant do anything about wet grass. It had been too wet to cut due to the rain we had the week before. This is now being done this Friday.
- As you see on the listing, the field is huge. We have dotted toilets around the site to combat this as we appreciate it's important to be near facilities. We also feel that, due to us being a pop up site, with all the will in the world, portaloos can sometimes give off an 'odour', so we figured people would be happy to not be too close to them.
- Although your review re our toilets are in contrast to many other people, we take on board everything you say as a result we have stepped up our toilet servicing frequency.
It appears you wrote this just as you arrived, which is a shame as generally a review is written after a stay, not at the start. You will have hopefully since seen a big improvement. We are very sorry for your bad experience and we hope you are still here, enjoying your 6 night stay.
Best wishes, Christian (Owner)

Excellent hospitality and camp facilities

Excellent location 2 miles from Betws y Coed, Conwy, North Wales. Big pitches with multiple water stations. Excellent showers and toilet amenities.

well-located basic camp-site

This camp-site is handily located between Betws and Llanrwst. Very large field with many flat pitches. Has toilets, showers and drinking water. Basic not luxurious but everything functioned. Main pros - good location, very easy to find, flat and basic facilities in line with expectation. On the night we were there fellow campers respected the cut-off for noise which of course will be hit and miss. Tents are also well spaced. Main cons - adjacent to the main road to Betws so some road noise, quieter of course during sleeping hours. Ear plugs always useful at a camp site of course. Overall in line with expectation and would have no hesitation in staying again.

Beautiful setting and easy check in

Fantastic camp site set in a beautiful valley with decent showers/toilets. Check in was super easy and we came and went as we pleased. Will definitely be booking again soon!

Big site, great space, good facilities. Needs marshalling.

Family of 6 plus 2 (well behaved dogs) Stayed 4 nights. First night we were kept awake by 3 young lads playing music and talking sexual conquests till 2am. 2 good nights followed, then on the final night, a party some distance away in the corner plots kept us awake past 2am. We pitched at the far end so it wasn’t from the lay-by or road. Toilets and showers were very good to start, though the toilets mid-camp did block up and get a bit messy when it got busier and were not changed/cleaned for a day. Plenty of flat space to pitch and generally good people nearby made it a more pleasant experience. Location is perfect for a lot of sights/events, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The site needs a bit more directional lighting at night, and definitely someone enforcing the ‘quiet’ time as advertised, I’d be happy with 11pm. This, together with a great location, was the main reason we chose this site… Perhaps stipulating that noisy groups past 11:30 would be asked to leave next day?

nice location, good service but poor fascilities

It is located in a peaceful place between mountains, friendly service from booking to check-in, I was aware of portable toilets and showers but to wash your teeth in the middle of the field from the pipe was a bit hardcore for me.

Basic site in good location

What you read is what you get - a basic pop up campsite, ok for 3 nights. Very spacious, lots of room between other campers and basic but clean facilities. Beautiful site in perfect location accessible to villages, waterfalls and Snowdon trekking trails. Limited options for food nearby but they do have pop up takeaway amenities at weekends. Staff were very friendly and always on hand to help.

Beautiful site

Beautiful site surrounded by the mountains and was great when I booked last minute. The staff were helpful and friendly and the facilities well looked after.

Perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Can not fault the site at all! My first time camping in my 37 years! I’m a home comfort wouldn’t even stay in a b&b with shared facilities kind of girl! I actually added on 2 nights!! I missed the lads name who works on site but what a champ our pegs were missing and he was our saviour even then helped put the tent in the wind and rain! Lovely lass also working on site. Both polite, friendly and approachable. Portaloos plus flushing toilets on a night, nice hot powerful showers, facilities to wash up! Lovely large site and pitch size. 2 lovely villages near by where you can crab anything you may need. Plus a short drive drive from snowdon itself. Wouldn’t know it’s a new site. My only critique would be when we booked there was burger advertised as been on site - this didn’t turn up so don’t rely on this but still given 5* as personally my visit wasn’t impacted by this. Snoring from the guys in the next tent was more intrusive 😂😂 All round I would definitely stay again and hope my next camping trip (I’m already planning) is as enjoyable. Maybe I’m a convert 🤦🏻‍♀️

Highly Recommend

This is such a great find. We were looking to climb Snowdon and found this campsite just around the corner from it. The staff were really friendly when we checked in and the field was large and had so many pitches that we didn't have anyone around us for our stay. The site had flushing toilets (open from 7pm-10pm) and showers, however we only used the portaloos on the side on the field we camped at. They were clean and always had loo roll, however the handwashing area did run out of soap, paper towels and water in the middle of the day and wasn't topped up until the following morning. That didn't bother us too much as we just washed our hands at our pitch. Overall I would definitely recommend this campsite, especially if you're wishing to head up Snowdon or just to see the surrounding area. It does have a little pizza van but it was't running when we were there.

Relatively basic but well organised site

The site is in a good location a short drive from Betws y Coed, plus it wasn't booked out when I booked at short notice! The what3words link made it easy to find and the staff at check-in were friendly and helpful. The facilities are portaloos and were kept clean, despite it being packed on Saturday I didn't have to queue at any point. The shower blocks are basic but effective. Some more taps or wash basins would be nice. There wasn't as much space between pitches as I was expecting but it wasn't a problem. Overall there's loads of free space if you want to kick a ball around or something. I would use the site again.

Good and bad

We stayed for two nights everything was great on the Friday, beautiful location, really friendly staff, clean toilets and showers, plenty of room and lovely banter with fellow campers. The second night was not so good, the camp site was at capacity, the toilets were unable to cope and were quite disgusting, the showers although hot and free were left in a mess with little or no cleaning going on. The night was really spoilt by a noisy group of drunken campers who talked loudly and played music until 2am. Would use again if Cool Camping address the issues and hope the drunken noisy campers will be dealt with appropriately.

The views are beautiful

Just stayed here for a couple nights back on August 13th. The views are beautiful from the campsite. Plenty space between us and the other campers. Betws-y-coed is 2 minutes down the road and is lovely for walk and some shopping/food/drink. Staff was lovely and very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Excellent campsite

Just returned from a great trip at camp Eryri. It's a huge flat grass field with basic amenities but these were always clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful and checking in was easy. I'd recommend camp Eryri to anyone. M

Quiet, clean, polite staff, spacious, good location

Its a field, that's it. But its managed well. Clean toilets and showers (portable but good quality) plenty of fresh water.. firm ground and excellent pitches. This is pretty much wild camping with toilets and showers, if thats your expectation this place is excellent!


Really nice location, well set out. Close to pubs, shops, and snowdon. Toliets were good, showers were excellent.

Excellent location - facilities need more attention

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camp Eryri for 3 nights. Friendly hosts, very helpful, recommended nice walks close by to do with our dog. The toilets were clean, although the handwashing station was empty by the Saturday night because it was really packed. Unfortunately it wasn't filled back up until midday Monday. It was a bit annoying, especially during COVID times, that there was nowhere to wash our hands. However, we still really enjoyed the location. It's a great place for families, couples, anyone really! Low noise rules after 10pm weren't strictly enforced but everyone went pretty quiet around that time anyways. The sites are a decent size, not much space between sites if it is busy though. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to all.

Lovely scenery, however facilities need improving

The campsite is in a nice location, however have to travel by car or public transport if wish to go anywhere as it is located on a main road. The campsite was basic as expected for a pop up camp site. There were ‘flushing toilets’ open between 7-10 in the evening however the smell of these was unbearable (worse than the portaloos). I avoided using the portaloos or flushing toilets where possible by using local cafes/ restaurants. These could definitely be improved. The showers were also okay however mine started off hot then half way through went cold. Overall a good weekend just the facilities could be improved

Great location, huge pitch and good facilities

Perfect location between Snowdon and not far from Llandudno for a great day out too.

Outstanding, polite & clean

Outstanding facilities lovely and clean, plenty of space for pitching up. Checking in was nice, easy and quick. Very polite people while checking in and throughout the stay and overall was a great experience even though I was there for only 2 days/nights. 100% recommend the stay and would be back

Amazing stay!

Me and my boyfriend stayed for 2 nights and it was the best 2 nights camping. The facilities were spotless, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the views at the campsite are incredible from all angles! The campsite is 5 minutes from Betws-y-Coed, and about 30 minutes from Snowdonia. The food van which was there over the weekend was an added bonus as well, the staff on there were also really friendly and helpful with advice about hiking up Snowdon too. Definitely going to book again if the site is open again next year!

Beautiful location & Myles is pleasant and helpful in every way. We stopped Thursday-Saturday and the facilities were lovely and clean when we arrived but was the weekend went on and the site got busier the toilets were unbearable and when possible we tried to use any facilities in pubs/cafes when we were out and about

Good campsite, nice views, good location for exploring Snowdonia. Hot showers good, portaloo toilets adequate and clean. Miles was very helpful.

Location and views

Excellent stay, beautiful views and friendly staff!

We camped here for 3 nights, wish we booked for longer! Surrounded by beautiful views 360 degrees around, spacious pitching room and great/ clean basic facilities too. Staff was very friendly and around all the time, full of advice for places to visit. Felt very central to every where we went. We will definitely book to stay here again, we loved it!

Clean, very good facilities and flat ground.

I hope this campsite is available next year as I would definitely go again. The staff were helpful, friendly and easy to find. The facilities were top notch, a lot better than some permanent campsites. Look forward to seeing you next year.

Great location, plenty of space

Huge flat field with good spacious pitches. Plenty of toilets, showers and drinking water stations available. Brilliant location a minute away from Forest Zip world and Betws Y Coed and just 20-30 mins from the best mountains in Snowdon. No stone baked pizzas or breakfast baps available as advertised at time of booking but not a big deal with Betws y coed so close.

Great site, great staff, clean facilities

An easy to find, reasonable priced affordable camp site. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is plenty of space and the facilities are as outlined and very clean. Have recommended to friends, colleagues and family and hope to be back soon.

Does what it says on the tin.

Really beautiful location, Flat field (seems to have decent drainage from what little rain we had) We were there Mon-Wed and didn't have the burger/pizza truck arrive (assumed it was on the weekends anyways?) - not a complaint, just a heads up to others if they go those days. Portaloos were kept clean Friendly welcome. Would defiantly use again.

Great location and spacious

Stayed here for a week as was our first camping trip with teenagers and a new young dog. The site was spacious with plenty of room to spread out unlike many sites. There is a bit of road noise always as it is right alongside the main road from the coast to Snowdonia but soon get used to it. The location is great for just about everything only 5 mins from betws y Coed and all of its shops and eateries, plenty of activities for the family and so many dog friendly places made it ideal. The facilities are basic but free hot showers and plenty of portaloo type toilets is all that we needed not quite wild camping but getting close. Staff onsite 24/7 so safe and they are always on hand for problems or info. So overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend as a place to stay away from commercial cramped sites.

Good location good facilities

As expect. Plenty of space. Good base to explore Snowdonia from. Good showers and facilities.

It was what it said on the tin!

Easy to get to, with a friendly welcome, we stayed for just over a week - 5 of us and two large dogs! The dogs really enjoyed it as well. It's a good location for getting to places from zip world to art galleries with lots of good walks on the door stop. Chilled, and straightforward. Would have been great to have the 'flushing toilets' open more of the time. The chemical toilets were ok. The showers were great. This is a proper camp site so don't forget there is no electricity for charging things! (and it's North Wales, so it can rain sometimes ;-)).

Quiet site, good location

Camp Eryri is a basic camp site in a lovely location, there are basic amenities but they are well maintained. We will visit again

Simple & easy

We stayed here for a long weekend and couldn’t fault the facility at all. It’s basic, nothing fancy but to pitch a tent and camp it was great. Close by to some lovely walks and a short drive into the town, good pubs, couple of shops. Field was flat, and we camped in the corner, out of the wind which was really helpful. Toilets and showers were clean and well looked after. Would recommend s

We have had a great time

We have had a great time camping at Eryri’s. The camp is huge, overlooking mountains. Easy access to Bets y Coed, a local town. Clean showers and toilets. Families should definitely check it out! Dogs are welcome at camp as well:) Myles was very friendly and helpful 👍

Great site

Camp Eryri does what it says on the tin. Great hosts, very clean facilities, super views. Very reasonably priced for a pitch. If your planing on going I would highly recommend. Take a dish washing bowl with you as there are no sinks in the toilet block.

Highly Recommended

I'm a 7 year old that loves to be out in nature with my dad. ​(follow @weareteamkrtm on instagram) Really friendly helpful bloke called Miles, he was nice to me and the other kids. Highly Recommended for the following reasons! 1. Clean Toilets 2. At 17:55PM to 20:30PM they have "Fancy Toilets" that play music and have fancy lights like a luxury hotel 3. Hand sanitising station everywhere *which is good because of the pandemic* 4. plenty of space for us because we had a little tent! Easy to find and nice pizza place not to far away (hangin pizzarea)

Really good, well kept campsite with plenty of room and loads of facilities. In a good proximity to Mount Snowdon so would definitely stay here again.

Great family campsite

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camp Eryri. Myles was friendly and helpful and the campsite was clean and peaceful, despite being near the road. I'd have liked the 'posh' toilet block to be open in the morning as well as evening but the portaloos were fine. Great camping location and near lots of dog friendly places.

Lovely place.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Clean facilities, plenty of space. Quite close to the road so there is some noise but did not impact on a lovely stay. Helpful and friendly staff too.

Great location, basic but high standard facilities

Last minute trip to snowdonia this week. I booked this campsite the night before and the whole process was so simple. I arrived in the evening around 7:30. It was very easy to find and well signposted. Met myles on arrival who was looking after the campsite that night and he gave me a quick intro to the facilities and where to pitch. It’s a big field in the foothills and pitches are around the rim so tents aren’t disturbed by cars driving by. The pitch was perfect, plenty of space between each one. The toilets were basic portaloos but clean and always stocked with toilet paper. There were also a couple of “special” toilets that played classical music and were pretty posh which were open during the day at points. Showers were warm and clean and plenty of water points on site also. Location is perfect! A few mins away from betws y coed which is perfect entry point to the national park. I took my bike and within minutes was on the 75 mile brailsford loop round the park. Felt safe with someone manning the site 24 hrs a day and thought it was good value for money. The only disappointment was the coffee/pizza van which wasn’t running when I was there. Thankfully the site is between two little towns that have cafes/restaurants but I was looking forward to having pizza when I booked! Would defo recommend this great little campsite

Peace and tranquility

We booked a 3 night stay at this new pop up campsite for the space as it was the first experience for us camping with our dog who has anxiety. Everything about this campsite was wonderful. The wide open space, wonderful views, proximity to so many amazing places to visit, Betws y coed especially and the space in the field between campers was perfect. We were welcomed in and given information we needed to know. Facilities gave us what we needed which was toilets, hot showers and water. The showers were always available, clean and always with hot water for as long as you needed. Perfect! Everything needed for an enjoyable stay away whilst making you feel free and at one with nature which wild camping can give you. Peace and tranquility! We ended up extending our stay for a further 3 nights! We were the sorriest we have ever been when our 6 night stay had to come to an end. Thank you very much. We hope you do this every year. We will be back! Tracy, Jay and Bailey.

Brilliant. Amazing location, good toilets, well run and chilled campsite.

Exactly what we were looking for. Wasn't too busy.

Great and clean camping place

Staff very friendly always approachable. Toilet and showers cleaned every day once or twice ( very clean). The site is situated very close to mountains and lakes. Highly recommended we had a lovely break we booked for 3 days and we have extended for another 4 days! Great experience and beautiful views.

2 nights

The site is huge but there is a limited access to the flashing toilets only from 6pm to 9pm! the light for the showers Is turn off at 9pm and the water is warm never hot! Facilities should definitely be improved. Also no electric pitches and at night is totally dark..

A little bit of paradise

We had two nights camping here in August, it was the perfect spot for our camping adventure. Everything we needed close by, plenty to do in surrounding areas. Great facilities, friendly and helpful site staff and an absolutely stunning setting to relax and let the kids play!

Great campsite. Very relaxed and quiet. Loads of space, fantastic views from your tent. I really like that it’s just tents with no vans. Only gripe is the toilets… they were clean but a bit temperamental. Could you add a few electric hook ups? Host was very pleasant and helpful!

Great experience

A great 3 night stay, Myles was really helpful and useful during our stay. Everything was as expected and described. Quiet and friendly campsite with good shower facilities! Sadly the pizza can advertised on social media the day before didn’t turn up, they also didn’t tel the campsite though so beware of this if you’re counting on it for dinner for kids like we were. - still 5* as nothing Camp Eryri could have done about this!

Relaxing vibes

Brilliant massive spacious pop up camp site with clean basic facilities. Road noise is the only minor issue as it is right off the main road but ideally situated for local attractions. I’d definitely stay again 👍🏻

Perfectly placed

Large pop up campsite, so expect a lot of people spread over a large area. Miles who welcomed us was really knowledgeable and friendly. Toilet and shower facilities were the type you would expect at a festival, kept reasonably clean and there was always some available. Great location.

Wonderful - I want to keep it to myself!

Camping has been chocca this year, so I was very happy when I discovered this 'pop up' site for a last minute trip to Wales. We are regular campers so have been gutted by the inability to be spontaneous due to campsites being fully booked (no-one's fault of course). The location is lovely, beautiful views all around, large green field, not overly manicured but perfect for free movement and pitching your tent. A tad near the main road and some early morning crop dusting planes meant an early wake up, but these things were really a minimal moment, which I soon blocked out. We were welcomed by Miles (I hope I have that right), who was helpful and friendly. We also accidentally lost track of time on our last day so were quite late packing up and he was so nice about it. Great host. As a site, it's perfect. Nature, large, open (beautiful star gazing at night). It is basic, but for me, this is how it should be. No yucky clubhouses or awful discos!! More wild camping, with a bit of convenience chucked in for good measure. The toilets and showers were all brought onto site (it's normally a farmer's field, rather than a campsite so no permanent structures) and I was really impressed with how clean everything was kept. Never a queue, constant hot water for showers, fresh drinking water, clean loos and always loo roll in them! The hygiene standards were very good. There was plenty of space for everyone to have a good amount of room. The only thing you can't really control with camping is the other campers, but thankfully, we got lucky and mostly it was peaceful. I would definitely go back here. It's one of those places where you don't want anyone to know about it because it'll get too busy, but it really is a lovely place and I hope they do well and 'pop up' again. Also easy access to Snowden, beaches and Betws-y-Coed, all of which we did and are gorgeous! Thanks for having us, Eryri!

Great campsite

Booked this campsite last minute as wanted to stay on camping for another night. Glad we did, plenty of room as its a big pitch and the showers were clean and hot and quite a few cubicles so not waiting around. Plenty of portaloo toilets available on each side and drinking water. Washing up facilities also near the shower block. I especially liked the pizza van that arrived around 5pm under a tree in the middle of the pitch 😊 serving either pizza or burgers stonebaked and cooked from scratch. This was on a Saturday evening. Sunday morning another van rocked up serving bacon buttys etc. Would defo go back again 👍

Decent position spoiled by inability to sleep

Flat huge site in a useful place. Really encouraged by rules on web and on arrival, quiet by 10, I go to climb and bike not party. However, could not get any sleep before 1.30 am on any night due to people shouting and talking in very loud voices and thumpy thumpy dance music going on. So very tired in the day. Someone needs to be onsite if they are going to sell the site as “family friendly” because it seems no one was taking any notice of the “rules”.

Response from Camp Eryri

Noise was caused by youths in a car in a layby *outside of our campsite. The rules our *onsite living staff communicate that you refer to do work with our guests - but not to the general public! 

What a brilliant campsite!

Stayed here for 2 nights after a few days of trekking around Snowdonia. What a brilliant campsite! Lots and lots of space in amazing surroundings. Facilities were excellent and the staff on site very helpful and welcoming. Just booked again for another short stay so I can do more hiking around the area. Looking forward to it!

Lovely spot!

Lovely spot, good location & had everything I needed. Many thanks to the friendly staff who were very kind and helpful throughout my stay!

Convenient friendly & spacious

Ideally located off a main through road to betws y coed, Camp Eyri is less than 100 meters from the local bus stop which will take you to this beautiful Snowdonian town where there are abundance of amazing walks up into the forests/mountains (if you are not in a hurry you can walk it in about 35 minutes) Down the road , there are more local forest walks which makes it easy for getting into nature. Super friendly and helpful staff will guide you to your pitch (when I went there was only 10 tents in this HUDGE open space) Hot showers, lots of loo's and water sites to keep you a happy camper! The only drawback is perhaps the proximity to the road which is a busy through road to Snowdonia. You will hear the hum of the traffic which can be a bit distracting from what appears like an ideal location The highlight is the tawny owl which you will notice at night, what a perfect backdrop in a almost superb site. Overall, a good value, handy base to explore Snowdonia. A fab 'pop up' campsite!

Excellent camp site with clean facilities

The setting for this site is perfect. Spacious pitches and I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the toilet and shower facilities. There wasn’t any hot water at the washing up sinks which wasn’t ideal but with my washing up bowl I managed to get hot water from one of the showers to wash my pots. Really impressed with the cleanliness of the toilets but think clearer instructions on how to flush those in the yellow cubicles would have prevented many of them getting blocked overnight. Would definitely stay here again though. Overall very impressed

Great Pop up Campsite

Loads of space, couple of miles outside Of a couple of villages, petrol station and Londis not to far away. Better than expected for last min booking.

Really Ace

Easy to find, great helpful fella that runs the site. Plenty of space and nice field with water, toilets, bins, showers and 2 food vans. Enjoyed our stay and it’s quiet

Lovely find close to Betws-y-Coed

Campsite by the main road, plenty of space, clean and easily accessible. Would return in a heartbeat :)

Spacious site

Very spacious site. Little noise from the road but not enough to bother you. Very warm welcome on arrival. Bit of a hike to the toilets if you pitch the far side of the field, which we did to escape the road noise. Toilets and showers very clean. Enjoyable stay with great access to everywhere in North Wales .

A basic but pleasant campsite.

The field was large and flat and the service was friendly. Whilst the toilet and shower facilities were in portable buildings, they were clean. The site is handily located for Snowdonia.

Perfect camping spot

Perfect camping spot. Close to Betws-y-Coed for food, shops and a rest bite from activities and really close to Snowdonia for activites, couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. Portaloos and showers onsite, all basic amenities taken care of. A food van that appears if you don't fancy going out for food or cooking around the campfire.

Super spacious, nice views & a bit of calm!

We stayed on the second night of opening & it was lovely to have so much space around us. We pitched and then went to hike Snowdon & felt really comfortable leaving out tent up. The guy who checked us in was helpful & recommended a pitch so the dog would have shade & it was lovely to hear the stream in the night. The portaloos were clean and though I didn’t use the shower block they looked alright! Will absolutely be back.
