Reservation camping needed in high season

We will visit Wales in July, beginning August next year for about 3 weeks. We travel with 4 persons in 2 small tents by car. We are thinking about to visit Bacon beans, Pembrokeshire and Snowdonia. We intend to stay about 3 or 4 nights on a camping. Our preference is not to make reservations for campings. Is that good possible in the high season or is it better to make reservations in advance?
Thanks for answering.

I'm assuming that the auro correct has changed Brecon Beacons for you! Depending on what sort of campsite you like I would say it might be good to make reservations in advance as your options will be limited otherwise. If your plans coincide with a hot weekend then there is a chance of many sites being full. If you like small campsites (I'm talking less than 10 pitches) with good showers I can recommend Point Farm campsite in Dale, Pembrokeshire. For the Brecon Beacons perhaps consider sites along the River Wye and perhaps do some canoeing.

It is the River Usk that flows through the Brecon Beacons National Park rather than the Wye - which skirts the NE boundary. Anyway, in the Usk valley - just SE of Brecon, this camp site is ideally located and has high ratings:>http://www.pencelli-castle.com

Here is a site about camp sites in Pembrokeshire:>https://coolcamping.com/campsites/uk/wales/south-wales/pembrokeshire

I would be inclined to firstly visit a campsite in south Pembrokeshire - somewhere west of Tenby. Then move to one in north Pembrokeshire - perhaps near St.David’s. Use this map to explore the county. If you switch off satellite view, the green areas are the most scenic. (Ignore the red marker).
