We stayed 4 nights in the Pine Tipi at Cae Adda Trawsfynydd. This was the most amazingly beautiful spot. The tipi is at the edge of a lake with woodland behind. The children were over the moon with it. The tipi was basic but had all we needed. The wood stove kept the tipi warm and there were mats to sleep on. It only rained once and the water came in a little at the door but it is a tipi after all! There was a dry shed to cook in and to keep your equipment in. Outside there was a picnic table, benches, chairs, a fire pit and a BBQ. All you need for a camping trip. We took a stove but there was a twin ring gas stove there. There was also a rocket stove which we sadly didn't get around to using. We were allowed as much wood to burn as we liked, in with the price of the stay which was £50 per night.
The showers and toilets were clean and there was plenty of hot water. The showers cost £1 for ten minutes which was good value. There was also a communal area where there was a fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and kettles for anyone to use.
We met the owners who were incredibly friendly and checked in on us on a couple of occasions to ensure we had all that we needed.
The site is in easy reach of plenty local attractions, including Mount Snowdon.

This site is away from all the crowds and is well worth the trip, its position on the edge of Trawsfynydd lake and the far reaching views must be some of the best in North Wales.
Four of us had an excellent time staying in one of the lakeside tipis, it was very well equipped and the wood burner made it very cosy throughout the night.
We spent most of our time fishing 50 yrds from the tipi and spent the evenings cooking and relaxing around the camp fire, what a great way to watch the sunset over the lake!
The site has great facilities which are very clean and the owner Gwyn could not be more helpful.
Can`t wait for our next visit and I`m sure we will bring more friends next time.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the tipis.

Simply Stunning campsite. All you need to reconnect to nature :) basic amenities, but logs to chop to make your campfire, hot clean showers for £1 and even a little kitchen to cook in if the weather turns nasty! Amazing views and great walks around the lake. My new favourite :)

Girlfriend and I spent 2 consecutive weekends at Cae Adda (3rd visit!!). What a gem in North Wales!! worth the 2H drive from the Midlands. Amazing scenery specially if on the edge of the lake, peace & quiet guaranteed. facilities available (toilets, showers, kitchen) & various walking routes for those who enjoy. The owner Gwyn is an absolute gentleman. Best campsite i've been to and will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: if possible choose the lake tipi, you'll get sun from early morning till evening.

A truly wonderful location for a campsite. We as a group rented both pitches and the cottage due to numbers and had a brilliant time. The cottage is modern and immaculate inside, with very clean, well maintained facilities.
The camping pitches overlook the reservoir which is a lovely view both in the evening and in the morning when waking up. Communal facilities on the campsite are also clean and well maintained, and perfect for campers. Will be back soon!

We (4 adults) stayed in the Lake Tipi during the weekend of 5th - 7th July as my husband and my friend's husband were taking part in a 2 day outdoor adventure challenge. We will definitely be going back here! 2 days was not long enough! Everywhere we went there was beautiful scenery and the views from the campsite were no exception.
We arrived during an invasion of midges! Not pleasent, but the campsite owners were there to give advice and recommended some hoods we could buy in a nearby village. Fortunately, the tipi remained 'midge-free' (mostly) and the wood burning stove was gorgeous. The beds were adequit and the additional storage we had in the wooden cabin was excellent - meant we could cook, eat, etc there and not in the tipi.
We also loved the campfire site and had loads of wood left for us (and plenty more available). We felt we definitely needed a longer trip here next time.
The toilets and showers were perfectly fine and cleaned several timea a day!
Although the midges were a real pain (early morning and evening only) please don't let them put you off! Pack your insect repellant and midge hoods and enjoy a lovely, tranquil, isolated setting for back to nature camping!
