Can anyone recommend somewhere? I'm planning to take my son (3 nearly 4) for his first camping trip this weekend, but haven't been camping in N Wales for over 15 years and that was just Nant Peris...
It needs to be somewhere with reasonably modern, clean facilities. A small shop would be a bonus. Easy driving distance (20-30 minutes) from the Porthmadog railway and close to some bouldering would be ideal
Thanks - looks good so I'll keep it in mind for future, but seems to be full
Is Gwern Gof Isaf back open yet? If so that. Doesn't have much in the way of facilities though they are clean, but it does have more of a family friendly atmosphere these days.
Cae Gwyn farm, Trawsfynydd LL41 4YE is basic but good. Less than 30 min from Porthmadog. Shop in the village and convenient for the Rhinogydd and Coed y Brenin Forest. Bouldering at Carreg yr Ogof, Trawsfynydd - 4 miles.
Yes its open and has online booking form. Although it looks like they are fully booked for the coming weekend.
Llyn Gwynant is in a beautiful spot and has great facilities, though they may be fully booked.
Thanks all, I've ended up booking somewhere by the beach near Porthmadog. Everywhere suggested except Cae Gwyn is already full; Traws is just that bit further to go via the A55 and I'm not keen to drive him across country due to car sickness. I'll remember the suggestions for the future, and to book them early, cheers!
Hopefully we will be back to normal booking procedures next year so you won't need to think weeks ahead!

Am I the only person that thinks this place is awful? It’s a bog everywhere(it is literally a floodplain) and seems to have 95% of the midges in Eryri. To add its pretty expensive (relatively).
You might be right. I've only visited in a van, and have enjoyed my time there.
I’ve camped there a few time and really like it and have managed to avoid any boggy areas.
The only issue I’ve had is where I once went on a bank holiday weekend and they crammed more and more people in. It was way too much. Too many people camped close together and not enough parking. If you went off climbing for the day you often couldn’t get parked when you got back.
In this week's Friday Night Video, we join Kaya Lindsay, Mary Eden, Samantha Mac, and Mercadi Carlson for a skin scraping, gruelling, month-long trip to Vedauwoo, Wyoming. The four of them aim to tick some of the hardest cracks and...
