Hi,

Off to Llanberis for some slate climbing and scrambling early March.

Any one have any suggestions where to camp? Good facilities and relativly close to a pub.

We have thought about the campsite at the base of Tryfan - but no pub near by!

I have a car. So Llanberis area - 15 miles either side would be ok.

Cheers

Andy

Nant Peris - the camp site opposite the Vaynol Arms.

There are two campsites, side by side. IIRC, the one slightly closer to Llanberis is cheaper, and has better (coin-op) showers!

Good spots, but worth checking the forcast - that end of the pass is a real wind tunnel !

In reply to Andypandyroo: I stay at a site accross the tarn from Plas y Brenin....

Its a rough arse farm site, BUT, great views, and is opposite the RAC Boulders for a spot of bouldering if you fancy!

In reply to Andypandyroo: Dol Gam - just before you come into Capel Curig on the A5. Really nice showers but no electric in the shower block. 5 minute stroll to the Tyn Y Coed, the best pub around that area in my opinion.
Otherwise the campsite opposite the Vanyol Arms in Nant Peris is fine. Stayed at both.

In reply to Andypandyroo:
The two opposite the vaynol are fairly poor standard and facilities but are in a good location and the one nearer llanberis is cheap.

Always stay at Dolgam. Basic but an ideal location and pubs within walking distance.

In reply to Denni:

Thanks for all the suggestions....driven past Dolgam loads of times, and I like the location.
So will most probably go for this one....thanks all!

I used to use Dolgam if I wanted to be near Ogwen, or the one above if Llanberis.

I always thought the Vaynol ones were pretty scummy.

Define Scummy? I stayed there numerous times while looking for houses in the area and I'd say it's the cheapest campsite in the area for the amenities provided.

In reply to Andypandyroo: Joe's farm on Ceunant Street/Capel Goch offers camping if you want good access to the village. It's a basic pitch up and go but only a ten minute walk into Llanberis. (follow the youth hostel signs from joe browns corner shop)
