Conwy District Scout Camp Site - Rowen
(Gwersyll Parc Mawr)
 

O.S.Sheet Outdoor Leisure 17 “Snowdonia and the Conwy Valley.” *Grid. Ref.758 735 

75 years after the site was acquired in 1931, the camp site remains a favourite choice of those who have discovered its charm and convenience. Nestled against Wales’s smallest mountain – Tal-y-Fan at 2001 foot high and neighbouring an area of ancient woodland owned by the Woodland Trust which is accessible to users of the site.

Situated 4 miles from the historic town of Conwy in the beautiful Conwy Valley, the site has much to offer including a good level of privacy.

The grounds cover approx 2 acres on a gentle slope with level areas for tents.

There is a HQ Building providing alternative sleeping area (Mats provided), A Kitchen, Dining/Sleeping Hall, Toilets and 2 small bunk rooms

Within five miles of the site there are rivers, lakes, the seashore, hills, mountains and valleys, all very good for hiking, backpacking, cycling and water-sports.  Still within the five miles there are castles and other historic buildings, supermarkets, multi-screen cinema and a railway station. Between eight and ten miles there is ten pin bowling, sports and leisure centres, three public swimming pools and the Welsh Mountain Zoo.  Slightly further away lies the whole of Snowdonia, climbing, rafting, narrow gauge and steam railways, museums, and even access to day trips to Dublin.

The Camp is owned by the Scout Association and operated by the Conwy District Council. It is only available to Groups who are members of the Scout Association i.e. It is not a public campsite.

The campsite is only available on a sole user basis and will not be shared with any other group.

The cost of booking the whole site is just £50.00 per group per night.
