“Lovely, wooded state park campground – 35’ length restriction, but if you can fit it’s a keeper!”

Overall Rating

Wells State Park is my idea of a state park campground. No hook ups, but lots of trees and right on Walker Pond for swimming and kayaking. We arrived without a reservation and the camp ranger mentioned there was a 35' size limit. No problem our rig is only 33', but he said the 35' included the towed vehicle and we might have to park our CRV elsewhere. Turned out the spaces were plenty long enough. The park had lots of openings and he assigned us one and said if we saw something else that worked better to take it and give him a call. I love friendly, helpful rangers. :)

We chose space #5, the trees made getting our 33’ class A into it a little tricky – but it was worth the effort. Several of the spaces are large enough to accommodate larger rigs, but the narrow camp road (and those pesky trees) would be a challenge in a really big rig.

Spaces are nicely separated so there is privacy. The site quality and size varies – there are some right along the water and others with water views. We had no trouble getting level, but other sites looked more challenging.

There are several hiking trails accessible from the park and some are mountain bike friendly. This is definitely a park we wished we had more time to explore.

We had just 2 bars of Verizon 3G unboosted; we managed 3-4 bars of 4G boosted but it wasn’t entirely stable.
