We are going to Barmouth for Whitsun shell island to be precise .

Has anyone ever stayed at Bala Lake car park overnight. .?? It's a free car park so just wondered if the locals would accept a motorhome overnight stop.

Last time we went there it was pay and display, and said no overnight camping. Or words to that effect

We stay in the car park at the top of Lake Vyrnwy regularly. Never get bothered, right by the river, and close to Bala, so maybe try there instead??

We got to Bala lake at 21.30 on the Thursday evening it was just turning dark but the signs clearly said NO overnight parking so after walking the dog we moved on a few miles towards Barmouth there was no parking in Barmouth so a few miles further we found a lay-by on the other side of the road near Llanbedr there was a coach in the lay-by so we felt quite safe and decided to sleep there. We woke up to a lovely sea view and sunshine .
We drove onto shell island before 8.00am checked in then drove to a quiet spot to pitch up.

She'll Island is a fantastic place for wild camping, although a little pricey if you have the extras like dog & wifi . But the showers are clean and warm. There are plenty of portaloos scattered around the site with water taps accessible also.

We had a brilliant weekend there and when the sun shone it was even better.

Shell Island isn't exactly what i would call wild camping, as your on a camp site and paying for the pleasure, but i digress, It is a great place and glad ya enjoying it, getting out and about is what it's all about.!
