hi guys

does any body know this area as we would like to take motor home out at the week end and my chap fancies visiting the clwedog dams in wales. If you have any good sites in this area that would be great.
Thanks claire :idea:

Check for any local restrictions re the water catchment area of the reservoir.

Further South the dams near Rhayader are in the Elan Valley. Regulations within the Water Catchment Protection Plan mean that no camping or overnight parking is allowed on the Elan Estate.

I was there last week and you can park on the road running alongside the dam/reservoir.

The Elan Valley estate isn't an option for overnight parking but parking is permitted in Dark Lane car park at Rhayader.

Hi Dylan,
Watch the snow drifts up there this time of year.

18694

This was taken last March, when the snow was 7ft high drifting across the road.
It will be there now, as smaller hills here are covered on the tops.
But don't know to what degree.
If you carry on to the top, over a bit, heading in Machynlleth direction.
Theres a nice pull in with spectacular views across the mountains and reservior.
It u's back, with a car park and seats
Don't know about overnighting, never checked.
Nobody around much anyway.
If they consider it impassable, there will be signs on the way up.
Lots of wildcamping sights towards and from, Aberdyfi to Tywyn and beyond.
Have a good stay. Rgd's Graham.

We stayed here - http://goo.gl/maps/vwqjf a couple of years ago, and several other motorhomes were doing the same. We thought we had it cracked for emptying our cassette, as there was a car park back down the B4518, with toilets, but when we went there, they were all padlocked, even the RADAR one!

Lovely views!! Enjoy yourselves!! (And I hope it doesn't snow!)

There isn't any snow to worry about at the moment, at least not on the roads yet. But yes I do ageree this is a very beautiful and unspoilt area, if a bit lonely at times.
