General

  • Spectacularly scenic rural site in Snowdonia National Park
  • Adventure caves, treetop adventure park and watersports nearby
  • Huge 1,600-metre karting circuit

If you're into karting, zoom over to Glan Y Gors Park 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.

And apart from the world-class karting, there are plenty more reasons to stick around here for quite some time: treetop adventuring, extreme caving, paintballing, fishing, whitewater rafting and canyoning opps, plus miles of coastline and a whole heap of wild walking trails and lakes that lie around the local area.

This spectacularly scenic site is set in a peaceful rural location just outside Snowdonia National Park and guarantees excellent facilities for a wild camping retreat deep in Conwy countryside; and what Glan Y Gors guests enthuse the most about after their stay here is the team's excellent and friendly customer service and the utterly handsome views from the park's 1,600-metre track.

Another thing that gets a rave review here is the food: to keep you sufficiently fuelled throughout your stay, the GYG team will serve you breakfast, lunch, homemade cream teas and dinner at the on-site eatery – and if you're venturing out for the day, you can pre-order your packed lunches too. For meals off site, there are plenty of country restaurants and pubs close by that your cordial hosts will be more than happy to point you towards.

Among the amenities are a sparklingly clean accessible sanitary block with toilets, hot showers and a baby changing room. Free wifi is available in the café.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

If you are arriving between 5pm - 9pm, please pick a pitch and see reception the next morning.

Hello :-)

Thank you kindly for taking the time to review our site and rate us an overall 10/10

It was lovely to hear you enjoyed your camping and karting experience with us. The young staff will be extremely pleased for the mention :-)

I can see out of 5 you rated our facilities and wifi a 1. Im guessing this is because you did not get the opportunity to use our facilities or our wifi.

For your future visit we do offer free wifi and can provide you with a camping brochure of the facilities we offer and all the fun adventures to do in North Wales

All the best and thank you for visiting!

    the site is geared up for go karting and advertised as wild camping . the cafe was for the karting experience the camping field is an afterthought to gain more revenue . cafe closed then a poor toilet block were the only amenities for campers . not the impression given on the website . we live and learn !!.

    Relatively flat field, very well drained, easy access from A5, fairly priced, plenty of room for kids to kick about, friendly staff & great go carting track & cafe.

    Disliked: 

    Main facilities only open 9-5 and only one shower, which is actually part of the toilets in the carting building so feels weird with customers and staff coming in and out while you’re trying to brush your teeth! Slightly noisy, out of hours toilets are very basic.

Local attractions

From Glan Y Gors you can quite easily explore the hills above Harlech and the lanes over to Llandudno. The site is also just under six miles from Llyn Brenig and Alwen Reservoirs and a mere eight miles from Clocanog Forest, which means that land- and water-based opps including boating, fishing, wildlife watching, cycling and gentle forest and waterside strolls are well sorted. Bala Lake, around 20 minutes' drive away, adds whitewater rafting and sailing to that already extensive list of activity options.

Another popular local attraction is the photogenic village of Betws-y-Coed, less than 12 miles away; stop at Miners' Bridge for a photo opp, watch the tiny trains chug around really small rails at the Conwy Valley Railway Museum and park up for a picnic at Pont-y-Pair Falls. The forests surrounding the village are crisscrossed by a network of walking and mountain biking trails too, so you can make a good day of it with a visit here.

If you're feeling a little more adventurous, head to the world’s biggest inland wave lagoon at Surf Snowdonia, 20 miles away, or try free falling, plummeting, ziplining and swinging at ZipWorld fForest treetop adventure park in Betws-y-Coed. Right next to this are two pretty special underground adventure attractions: Bounce Below, an underground trampoline park in the old slate caverns, and Go Below, where brave contenders journey through a mountain via a series of challenges ranging from zip-lining through caverns to climbing up vertical shafts, boating across a subterranean lake, traversing an abyss and abseiling down to the deepest point in the UK.
