Adventure Basecamp Wales: Beautiful views from the camping field

General

  • Spectacularly scenic rural site just outside Snowdonia National Park
  • A basecamp for adventures such as hiking, biking and wild swimming
  • Huge 1,600-metre karting circuit; café serving snacks and coffee

Adventure ahoy: Adventure Basecamp Wales is a scenic wild camping site in a peaceful rural location just outside Snowdonia National Park, with easy access to outdoor activities of all sorts within a short drive. If you're into karting, zoom to here sharpish: with one of the UK's largest Motor Sports Association-approved karting circuits, this is quite possibly going to be the park of all your petrol-themed dreams…

Apart from the world-class karting, there are plenty more reasons to stick around here for quite some time: the site lays on e-bike, mountain bike and hiking adventures, with several wild biking trails and a whole heap of walking trails straight from base (activities vary by season and booking ahead is highly recommended – put your request in the 'special requests' section of the booking form). If that sounds too strenuous, there are several lakes in the local area to laze around at, and the site is in a Dark Sky Reserve for idling after dark.

In between all that, Adventure Basecamp Wales guests have enthused about the team's excellent and friendly customer service and the utterly handsome views from the site. Another thing that gets a rave review here is the food: fresh bean coffee is served to keep you fuelled throughout your stay, alongside breakfast and lunch bites and homemade sugary treats.

The team highly recommends that you venture out to sample local Welsh products too, including Welsh meat, cheese, wine and local honey. There are plenty of farm shops and country pubs that your cordial hosts will be more than happy to point you towards.

Among the amenities are a sparklingly clean toilets and hot showers; free wifi is available in the main building.

    View was like a quarry, noisy road and go carts all day ,no where to walk really and toilets were locked up at night, no shower, not cheap for just a piece of grass

From the manager...

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay however, we are currently progressing part of the site well away from the area you were camping on and we have 360 degree views therefore you could have positioned yourself differently. We are located at a go kart circuit which is outlined in the site information, therefore you should have taken this into consideration. It also states our toilets and showers are not in use due to coronavirus this information is visible and provided before booking as is you must have self contained accommodation this meaning your own toilet and shower facilities therefore ours being closed at night shouldn't have been an issue as you shouldn't have needed to use them.

    Good Views and sunsets! Plenty to do around and good friendly staff.
    Plenty of room and the place was really not as full as I expected over the bank holiday weekend! Really good, chill weekend :)

    You can hear the go carts in the background during the daytime, but there are massive conifers in the way so its really not that disturbing.

Local attractions

From Adventure Basecamp Wales you can quite easily explore all the Snowdonia mountains, and, if you’re a keen scrambler, shin up epic Welsh ridges and the famed Tryfan mountain. The popular Ogwen valley, a hiking haven, is within easy reach: ask the site team for details.

Take a wild swim in Wales’s wild natural lakes or try out the outdoor watersports on offer, from paddleboarding, canoeing and rafting to the world’s biggest inland wave lagoon at Surf Snowdonia. As well as natural glacier lakes, the region has acres' worth of natural forest with mountain bike trails.

More peacefully, the site is surrounded by pretty villages, such as Betws-y-Coed, 25 minutes' drive away: stop at Conwy Falls for a photo opp or try freefalling, plummeting, ziplining and swinging at ZipWorld Fforest treetop adventure park.

Right next to this are two underground attractions: Bounce Below, a trampoline park in the old slate caverns, and Go Below, where brave contenders journey through a mountain via a series of challenges ranging from ziplining through caverns to boating across a subterranean lake and abseiling down to the deepest point in the UK.

Must see

  • Bodelwyddan Castle (16.1 miles)
  • Bodnant Garden (16.5 miles)
