Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The campsite entrance is on the A498. In summer Sherpa buses drive past the campsite from Caernarfon to Pen y Pass (S4) or from Porthmadog to Betws y Coed (S97). The nearest train station is Betws y Coed, so you can get a bus from there. Trains also serve Bangor and Porthmadog. From Bangor you will need two connections, via Caernarfon, Llanberis then the Sherpa bus to Pen y Pass and the campsite.
Leave your car at the campsite. You can walk up Snowdon directly from the site, go boating or swimming on the lake or go climbing in a nearby nature reserve. Many scenic hillside walks can be accessed from the site, and the lake and river shore offer a beautiful place to relax.
