Firstly a brief overview of the campsite before i list some individual Pros/Cons.
I hope this review will help those looking for a campsite.
As a Sessional Tourer (March - October) for a few years now i feel that i have learnt a lot over my time on the site and it has some truly lovely aspects.
The journey to the Site from the A55 is never a problem (gave or take holiday traffic) and are widely typical Dual Carriageways that run at 70MPH with a few 50MPH zones.
Leaving the A55 at junction 10 the road becomes single lanes with one step club and decent that takes you into Caernarfon, which is your nearest (shopping town).
Leaving Caernarfon and turning for the Campsite you are hit with a country lane for a few miles.
Please be warned there are drivers on the lane who believe they own the road or indeed believe they drive a vehicle the size of a bus.
Arriving at the campsite you are welcomed on the left by reception and on the right the Pub/Swimming Pools/Small Park and behind the Pub is the site shop.
Directly in front you will see the tourer area that has selection of sized pitches. All hard based and all look even, which is brilliant.
Behind the tourer section is a dozen or so newish and expensive statics that look lovely, they have a lovely view of Snowdon and the other Mountains.
To the left as you arrive are more statics and as you walk around the site it is surprising how many there are and how you don’t feel their presence.
Shop adequately stocked and priced well
Site is always clean and always see ground workers
Good sized pitches that are hard standing, EHU, & Water on each pitch
Pub food is lovely and quantity is sufficent
The area is lovely you have a small airport that has light aircraft flying over the site, a pebbled beach 10mins walk away and a large (marsh like area) that actual runs over to Caernarfon itself
Kids run the site, if you don’t like kids best to stay out of kids holidays when quieter
The female toilets are to a good standard Soap,Dryers etc all working order
Washing Machine £2 and Dryer 50p
A key is required for the toilets but unfortunately parents do give this to their children who are often found as a group inside - the girls toilet found painting nails etc (thats fine) however the boys often have a small group of typical teenagers - parents please keep your kids in order (thanks :) )
Staff to mention: Shop - Sue (now Left), Pub - Neil,a young Girl who works of an evening along with a young chap who has dark hair and always calls me Sir. All friendly and offer great service.
Swimming Pool is not heated no matter how much the owner Andy tells you that it is. I have been in other outdoor pools some near and you can tell a massive difference - for this reason unless it is a warm day the swimming pool is quiet.
The pool needs a good cleaning more regularly - although this maybe me picking as how can you stop kids getting in with dirty feet - perhaps have a basin and shower for people to use?
Sue (as mentioned above), was great and was a massive part of the site, but has recently left meaning that the shop that opened 9 - 6 is now open only 9-11 and 9-12. For me this is not good as the shop should be opened the same time regardless to staffing issues. I am told in an emergency someone from reception will try and come over - does children wanting a 20p mix warrant?
The mens toilets are often dirty (they do clean each morning), the hand wash is often watered down too much so it results in a oil feeling that does not wash your hands.
The dryers are useless, none are powerful enough to dry your hands
Dog Poo has increased on the site (owners please pick it up - there are sufficient “Poo Bins” available.
A lane in-between the site and the Airport has now been renamed - Poo Lane, what should be a nice walk is now a dodging game of who can avoid such mess.
The site needs some sort of board at reception that could display the following - Tide and Weather Information, Wanted/For Sale etc
Static season runs March - Jan good for them for two months more then tourers
Receptionist although not bad does lack something when it comes to customer service.
Don’t order the Friday Special Burger and Drink if you are hungry - i did and what came where a few chips a with a small burger and bun, nothing else I’m afraid and unlike their other burgers this was not worth it, i even had to add 50p for my choosen pint :(
Complaining to the owners (two brothers) you are given a defensive reply rather then them acknowledging that you pay a premium for a seasonal pitch and come back year on year so to try and understand take feedback as given and try to move forward.
After the post you maybe in two minds…….
Overall it is a site that i would and do come back to so that should say everything, however there are always areas to improve and feel that some of the cons listed could be implemented easily.

Have been looking for a Holiday home not too far away from home for ages but did not want the corporate stuff which is always advertised. Found Morfa Lodge as my friend had visited years ago and recommended it to me. Visited and found the place very easily. 10 Minutes from Caernarfon and less than two hours from home (Manchester). Andy and James were a great help and made my decision very easy and hassle free. I am now a delighted owner and would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic veiws, truly amazing on a clear day. Bit of a hike to the beach but a flat straight road so take your bikes!!! Friendly owners and staff, lovely food and very reasonable prices.One concern, the park is at the moment being extended for more caravans but doesnt seem to be work improving the activity's pools etc, and found it got quite packed over the Bank hol weekend.Very nice areas for static carvans, playing areas and grassed areas but touring areas bit cramped.Great area for going walking and siteseeing.Note you are next to the small local airport which got very busy at times with very low flying helecopters and small aircraft. Beautiful beaches though, clean shower and toilet block and the views... WOW
