The location of this campground works well for us. It is very central and easy access to the Mass Pike. The campground is well maintained and the staff have been attentive to all of our needs. The sites are spacious and the pond has been wonderful for my children. It is more of a lake than a pond. It's huge... More

We stayed in sites 10 and 11 on a dirt road a short walk to the bathrooms and beach. Saturday night was mostly families, while Monday and Tuesday were more 20'somethings. The good: The sites were all large and relatively level, given how hilly the park is. We had a lovely view of the lake through the trees. There was... More

Wells State Park is a great camping destination. We stayed on site 17, level spot overlooking the pond and very private. There were no sites near us. The restrooms were not far, about 100 yards or less, clean and well maintained. Showers were hot and great pressure though there was only one for men and one for woman. That did... More

We really enjoyed our time camping here and 100% plan on coming back. Good size sites, nice distance from each other, and the pond is fantastic. Next time we'll make sure to bring kayaks or rent stand up paddle boards. Also, I know bathrooms are not something people think of when "roughing it" but it is so great to have... More

We rented a yurt. When we arrived to the yurt, the staff came and "cleaned" the yurt for us. The outside of the yurt looked well kept, but the inside of the yurt was horrible. There were numerous amounts of spiders, cob webs, various bugs surrounding the inside of the yurt. It was disgusting. It was extremely hard to sleep... More

Wells Park is a great way to spend a nice day outdoors. The pond (I would call it a lake) has easily accessible swimming beaches that you can walk to or drive. The hiking trails are well maintained. In peak season there is a $2 parking fee. I did not camp there, but it looks like a wonderful place for... More

Great. Hiking trails well marked and mapped. Good day hikes and the table rock trail leads to a stunning cliff side view of the valley below. Stop by BT'S Smokehouse for a great meal afterwards. Free entry to the park this time of year but looks like they charge in busy season.

Very well maintained state park. Nice camping area, small lake for fishing or paddling and lots of space for hiking. Close to the Mass Pike in central Mass so it is easy to get there but you will think you are "away from it all". Great place to enjoy nature for the day or for several days. Bonus..lake offers good... More

We were in the area & didn't know what Wells State Park was. The woman at the gate told us we could drive through & look around, no charge, which we did. There's hiking trails, a nice lake with a clean beach & lots of camping sites. I imagine there's no hookups which isnt' for me but if that's your... More
