This Snowdonia site is a beaut.

And so say the generations who've returned to Riverside Camping near Caernarfon in Gywnedd season after season: we'd be hard pressed to pin down just the one reason why, but we reckon it has something to do with peaceful riverside pitches among lots of open space.

And the friendly helpful team, and the many little additions like free wifi, a splendidly-sized undercover picnic area, a volleyball, boules and badminton court, and activities from den building to a GPS treasure trail… we're aware that's several reasons, but we did say this site is a beaut...

Riverside Camping is in a sheltered loop of the River Seiont that's proved most suitable for fishing, birdwatching, boating and paddling, surrounded by woodland for yet more holiday adventures (woodland footpaths and a dog walk are accessible straight from the site).

Apart from its riverside location, the site's setting is also a beaut: a few minutes' drive from the mountains of Snowdonia, two miles from mighty Caernarfon and less than six from the coast. Steel-blooded campers also use Riverside as a base for the Slateman Triathlon and Snowdon Race in Llanberis five miles away, or for mountain biking, watersports and many other heady north Wales activities in the region.

Other thoughtful touches (there are many) are the kids' playground in the middle of the site; pocket-money toys (and sweets, drinks, ice cream and tourist info) in reception; a mini playhouse and a colouring table for the kids; a launderette and a freezer for ice packs; and undercover table tennis and pool to partake of on rainy days. The hot showers on site are free and include family and disabled facilities.

Riverside Camping also has an on-site bistro, The Mill, serving meals using local ingredients, light lunches, snacks, wine, local ales and Welsh breakfasts including laver bread to fuel stomachs before a hike up/race down the nearest mountain. The nearest shop is a Spar about a mile away and plenty of pubs, takeaways and restaurants are at nearby Caernarfon.

Dogs are welcome at Riverside, as are group bookings – time to gather your crew for a Welsh riverside stay and a hike to the Snowdon summit…?

Open from 14 March to 31 October
