Tyn Cornel riverside campsite

Tyn Cornel Camping

Croseo/Welcome to Tyn Cornel.  If you’re looking for a relaxing country riverside campsite that caters for tents, motorhomes and glamping, Tyn Cornel Camping fits the bill.

We are based in a stunning location in the countryside 4 miles from Bala in North Wales. We are nestled right on the banks of the River Tryweryn in the foothills of the Arenig Mountains. If you are looking for a country camping spot, love wildlife and the outdoors and want to be close to Snowdonia National Park, we think you will like it here.

Our facilities cater for tents, caravans and motorhomes. We offer traditional grass pitch camping, hard standing electric hook up camping and glamping pods, all available to hire.

 There is lots of space for the kids to play, and we provide a peaceful grassy spot with a picnic bench and fire pit.  Onsite we have a little shop, our Wifi is free, have e-bikes available to hire and dogs are most welcome.

Glamping Belle Tents & Pods

We also offer Glamping, the low-hassle camping with extra comfort. We have two rather unique shaped Lotus Belle Tents and two Riverside Pods for hire.  All you need is provided in our beautifully canvas glamping tents.

Or, comfortable, heated pods with electricity, a great view of the river and plenty of room for a family of 4.

Outdoor Life

If you’re after some river action – kayaking, canoeing or whitewater rafting, you can’t beat our location.  Our riverside walk takes you from the campsite to the popular National White Water Centre in just five minutes. The outdoor adventure needn’t stop at the riverbank though. If you like hill walking, mountain biking, road cycling or rock climbing the fun is close by.

If you enjoy exploring at a more sedate pace, there is plenty to do within easy reach. The market town of Bala and the beautiful Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) are only 4 miles away from the campsite. The North Wales coastline, with its gorgeous award-winning beaches, is also nearby and you’ll find it hard to choose which castle or narrow-gauge railway to visit first.


In accordance with coronavirus regulations our toilets and showers are open but at a reduced capacity. All doors and windows will be kept open for ventilation, and enhanced cleaning procedures are in place, including regular anti-fogging. If you have your own on-board facilities, or a camping toilet/shower, we kindly encourage you to use them. If you are using our facilities, please wear a face covering when possible.
