Great short hikes!

We were just looking for a place to take a nice hike in the woods during a recent hotel stay in Sturbridge. Parked for 5 dollars, picked up a trail map and explored the Carpenter Rocks trail and the Mill Pond Trail for a couple hours. Trails were well marked & well maintained. We got some lovely views. There were... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend camping trip and enjoyed being on the Pond and the privacy that we had. We stayed at site 17 and couldn't hear any other campers. Although at night you can hear the Mass. Pike in the background but it is vert minimal. The bathrooms and free showers were average for a... More

This is one of my favorite campgrounds and it's right in my back yard. Campsites are well kept, staff is friendly. Hiking trails are great - my dogs will attest to this as well! Fall camping is my favorite here.

Many years ago we took our first camping trip to Wells State Park and we have been camping ever since. We have been here at least 4 more times and have a great time each time we camp. A note to those of you who have children-the "upper" loops are hilly terrain and not good for bike riding, but that... More

We started with this campsite for our first family camping trip With our pop up camper because it was close to home. The beach is great, the restrooms were clean with hot water and the park is quiet. We stayed at site 13 which is raised up from the road way and close to the restrooms. Many trails for hiking,... More

Wells has some lovely hiking trails-something for every level of experience. There are quick loop ones, or some that are a bit longer for those looking for a bit more of a challenge. The view from Carpenter's rock is lovely anytime of year--each season holds its own special beauty! There is a nominal feel for parking. Camping is also available... More

We take our horses here off season so that we may enjoy the small beach. Trails are a bit rocky, but if you can find the one trail that leads to the top of the power lines, the view is unmatched!

I camp here every summer. It's very quiet and the sites are large and private. I usually book early to get a site beside the pond. Nice hiking trails.

Wells State Park is a very basic campground, we are talking no electricity, no water at sites, but stations spaced out. Comfort stations located within walking distance, again basic but electrified & well maintained. Variety of sites, waterfront, wooded & remote. Tents, campers & motorhome accessible, new Yurts. Beautiful clean setting, trails( easy & challenging), excellent views. Pavilions for larger... More

Rolled in here with a 22' Travel trailer ( and the wife) for an overnight stop. Close proximity to the Turnpike was a bonus. This is a small campground WITHOUT hook-ups, but if you seek large secluded sites....this is the place. A quiet lake provides relaxing views and trails go off to who knows where. Large rigs ( 5-wheel or... More
