Llanystumdwy Camping and Caravanning Club Site sits on the western edge of Snowdonia National Park in one of the most desirable parts of the Welsh landscape. The park has been awarded four stars by the Camping and Caravanning Tourist Board, and has 70 pitches, some serviced, that are open for tents, motorhomes, and touring caravans. The park is open from late March until early November, and is pet friendly.
Serviced pitches can benefit from access to electricity hook-ups, while facilities for completing laundry, washing up, and disposing of chemical waste are also available. We also offer a Wi-Fi internet connection for anyone who needs to stay connected with home during their trip into this stunning area and caravan park in Gwynedd.
Our park is situated on the Lleyn Peninsula, which is one of the best walking areas in the whole of the country. Staying with us means you’ll have perfect access to the peninsula, and because Snowdonia dominates the landscape here, despite its beauty it is actually one of the best kept secrets in the whole of the United Kingdom.
Away from the Lleyn Peninsula, the main attractions, Snowdonia aside, are the village of Llanystumdwy and the town of Criccieth. Llanystumdwy is a short walk from the park, and has places where you can get something to eat and drink. Criccieth is a town steeped in history and is filled with friendly people who are all too happy to converse with visitors and share their own knowledge of the place. Travelling right to the edge of Snowdonia will take you to the popular coastal town of Porthmadog, which has a range of attractions and a small beach for you to enjoy.
There is no question that the centrepiece of the area is Snowdonia National Park, however, where you will find activities to inspire you and the whole family. The obvious thing to do is climb Mount Snowdon, although anyone who doesn’t feel up to it can always take the easy option and use the Snowdon Railway instead, which cuts the trip down from an all-day adventure into a couple of hours, including some time spent at the summit.
Elsewhere throughout Snowdonia you will find an abundance of nature trails, not to mention opportunities for cycling, climbing, and abseiling, as well as picnic spots. Those looking to relax should make their way to the many lakes situated throughout the area and indulge in a day of fishing.

The village of Llanystumdwy, with a couple of places that serve meals, is a ten-minute walk from the site, while local town, Criccieth has a castle with a mediaeval, twin-towered gatehouse.
The area is full of history and home to a number of attractions. A local museum is dedicated to politician David Lloyd George, while further afield are the delightful Italianate village of Portmeirion, the seaport of Porthmadog – home to the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland narrow gauge railways – and Caernarfon, dominated by the mediaeval fortress of King Edward I.
Dwyfor Ranch Rabbit Farm and Farm Park – also home to Shetland ponies, lambs and goats – and Afonwen Working Farm and Pony Trekking Centre are good places to visit with children.
