Wild Camp

Wild camping spots – check out the images if you want to know they’re good or not!

Place Fell Wild Camp 5/5 (4)

Place Fell, Due to the undulating land there are quite a few sheltered hollows to get out of the wind. Excellent view Eastwards for sunrise and the Westwards one is not too bad either!

Llyn Morwynion Wild Camp 5/5 (1)

Llyn Morwynion is a picturesque wild camp in the middle of the rugged Rhinogydd. It’s a bit of a clamber to get to from what is known as a ‘path’ in this area, but well worth it. Plenty of camping spots, water and a view!  

Llyn Twr Glas Wild Camp 3.5/5 (2)

This lake nestles in the Rhinogydd Badlands, and has a small flat area towards the nothernmost point. The selling point for camping here is the feeling of remoteness, even though you’ll still hear motorbikes on the A470 as it’s barely 5km away.

Llyn yr Adar Wild Camp 4/5 (1)

Llyn yr Adar in the Moelwyion is one of the spots I’ve camped in the most often, but it’s unfortunately quite popular as the image above shows. Being located just off Cnicht, it’s a prime spot with plenty of room and a good water supply.

Allt Maenderyn Wild Camp 4.5/5 (2)

Excellent little spot on Snowdon South Ridge with views, water and a decent flat pitch. We’ve posted an in-depth article on how we got along on this wild camp – Anatomy of a Summer Wild Camp.

Sandy Ford, West Okement Valley. No ratings yet.

Flat grassy area on the East side of the West Okement River near Sandy Ford ( out of). Nestled in the valley with the steep climb up to Kitty Tor to the West, Dinger to to the East and Lints Tor to the South. Good views of the valley looking toward Black-a-Tor Copse.

Cwm yr Afon Goch Carneddau 4/5 (1)

Another easy to get to wild camp in the Carneddau with the route up via Aber Falls making it all the more special. Ideal spot to start off a weekend exploring the Carneddau.

Afon Rhaeadr Fach No ratings yet.

A quiet spot in the North Carneddau that’s ideal for a late start on a Friday night. Great views and a water source nearby makes this a good compromise. Excellent spot for exploring the Carneddau on the following morning.

Dartmoor No ratings yet.

On top of the Hill next to the outcrop. Within the Okehampton range danger areas so check firing times beforehand. Alternative spots to pitch in the vicinity of the Tor or drop down the north side to a flat area closer to the water sources or flat spot close to Sandy Ford (West Okement River).

Cader Idris Minffordd Path

Dartmoor No ratings yet.

Remote spot on a great Tor, just remember to stock up on water before ascending the hill. Always check the Dartmoor Firing times beforehand.

Bera Mawr Wild Camp 5/5 (1)

A flat fairly rocky area just below the summit of Bera Mawr. Views out to sea to the north and over to the grander Carneddau in the south.

Llyn y Cwn No ratings yet.

Located below the steep slopes of Glyder Fawr, this is an idyllic wild camping spot or just a convenient lunch stop on a traverse of the Glyderau. It’s also quite busy!
