I am a volunteer workamper at Welcome Station RV Park in Wells, NV. I work in the office. This guest called and spoke to the park owner about reserving a site for five nights. The guest has a big Montana 5th wheel that is several years old. The guest requested a 50 amp pull through/full hookup site. The owner explained to her that all of the 50 amp/PT/FHU sites were reserved for the first three nights of their stay, but after the three nights they could move to a 50 amp/PT/FHU site for their last two nights. The owner explained that for the first three nights of their stay that the only sites available were back-in/30 amp/water and electric only. The guest chose to reserve the back-in/30 amp/W/E site for three nights and then move to a 50 amp/PT/FHU for the last two nights. When they arrived, the guest’s husband had a very difficult time backing into the back-in site. Then one of the slides made very loud noises when it was extended (maintenance issue?) Soon after arriving, Mrs. Guest came into the store. She said that her husband was very upset with the RV site. She said he was hot and upset that he could not run the air conditioning (they had 30 amps and could have run one air conditioner). I told her that it cools down very nicely later in the evenings and at night. I said that most of us that live here use our air conditioning very little or not at all because of the cool evenings. She said that their RV was sitting in the sun (this site is shaded morning and evening) and it was just too hot. She also said her husband was upset that there was no sewer hookup for that site and therefore he would have to take a shower in the park restroom/shower house. Mrs. Guest was informed before making the reservation that that site was back-in/30 amp/W/E only. Mrs. Guest bought all of the cans of Coca Cola that we had in the store. She said she was going to use them to make her husband some alcoholic drinks because he was so upset. She told me that they may not stay because they were so disappointed in their site. She asked me how much of a refund they would get back if they cancelled the rest of their stay. I told her she would have to speak with the owner and the owner would make that decision. She said it’s too bad there is no golf course nearby. I told her that there is a course in Wells which is 8 miles away. I then proceeded to look up the golf course information on the internet. I then wrote down the location and phone number and gave the information to Mrs. Guest. The next day, a man drove a truck and RV into the park without notifying the office or getting permission from the owners to be on private property. The guests NEVER came to the office to ask permission or inform the owners that they had someone coming to visit them. The owner stopped him. He told her that he was here to visit these guests. He was very rude, demanding and threatened to leave a negative review for the park. The owner allowed him to park his truck and RV in the shade in order to visit these guests even though he was not a registered guest and had not gotten prior permission to be on the property. At no time did Mr. or Mrs. Guest say anything about a family funeral. Mrs. Guest told the owner that they were here to visit a granddaughter. At NO TIME was the guest told to get out of the office. We would NEVER treat a guest in an unkind manner. The guests requested a refund for the last two nights of their stay which would have been in a 50 amp/PT/FHU site. They received a refund for the last two nights of their stay minus $10 which is per our published cancelation policy. The policy also states that if a cancellation is made within 48 hours of the reservation then one night is not refunded. The guests did not receive a refund for their third night in their original site. They stayed two nights in their original site and left. They knew before making their reservation that the first site was a back-in/30 amp/W/E only. The owner gave them all the information about their sites up front. There were no surprises. I want to state that every possible accommodation was made for these guests. Welcome Station has been very busy this summer season and sometimes it’s very hard for an RVer to get a site here, especially a 50 amp/PT/FHU site. The owners do absolutely everything they possibly can to accommodate every single RVer and camper and to make their stay an outstanding, memorable stay.

If you are looking for an RV resort with a pool and a ton of things in the town to do, this is not it. However, this little hidden gem (in the middle of nowhere) is an amazing place to stop if you are in the area and need a place to go for a night or two. We were on a 3k mile, 5 state camping trip with our kids in a truck camper and needed a place to stay between St. George, Utah and Burns, OR and Welcome Station did not disappoint! My kids were entertained with the little ladybug scavenger hunt, they loved the swings, played in the large grassy areas (which were nice and cool in the July heat because of the large trees) and liked sitting by the little rivers where they have a lot of chairs to sit at. My kids weren't too interested in the little museum that they have set up but that is just because they wanted to run around and get their wiggles out. I thought that it was a nice touch though and as a parent, I appreciated the extra work they put into the place to make it fun for kids! Especially since if kids are having fun, parents are able to relax more!

Went to office to explain that my cousins were stopping by for 30 minutes. We just left my brother's funeral. We told me to get out twice and would not listen. We forfeited 2 nights stay to get away. Sewer problems, so many gnats that we could not be outside. A very unpleasant stay.

First, the owners are great. I accidentally left my expensive surge protector one night and emailed Nancy. She held it for me until our return trip. We stayed one night in late May and one night in late June on the outbound and return legs of a coast-to-coast trip in a camper van. Oasis is an appropriate description. The RV sites are situated between two large open grassy lawns with plenty of space for activities of all types. Clean restrooms and well kept facilities. The stream and pond are a treat. We stayed in 10 different RV parks on this trip and Welcome Station was by far the best. If it was closer to our home base (8h and 550 miles) it is the perfect weekend getaway spot.

We needed a place to break up a long drive and randomly chose Welcome Station RV Park. Boy, are we glad we did. This is an oasis in the high desert with a babbling creek, mature shade trees, birds chirping and lots of soft and wonderful grass. It’s meticulously cared for. It’s so peaceful, despite being next to Interstate 80, that we booked a second night so we could sit and enjoy the serenity for a full day. We are winding up a 2-month cross country trip and this place in the middle of seemingly nowhere is our favorite so far. It seems to be family owned and operated, but I’ll ask about that.

Who would have thought to find a blissfully lush, green haven in the middle of the high desert? My husband knows what I like and the Welcome Station RV Park delivered! The sites are plush grass and protected from the sun by stunning trees. The weather was ideal and the hosts welcoming. Our grandsons participated in the Lady Bug hunt, swam in the stream, rode their bikes and had a glorious time! We relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful environment, swung in the hanging chairs and perused the gardens. Welcome Station must be seen to be appreciated. If you need cable television and WiFi this is not your place. If you love peace, nature, serenity, wildlife, gardens and a meandering stream, this is the spot for you! This park earned on our top five (RV) destinations and we will be back.

This was our first RV experience, and first RV campsite. We had scheduled back in January to fly to Steamboat Springs, but then the virus came so we chose to rent an RV in CA. We called for directions as we approached Wells, and Nancy was very gracious in patiently giving directions. Driving up, we found Steve waiting for us on the road in a golf cart. He guided us right to our spot, and then helped me back into it. What a refreshing surprise this place was. It was beautiful, we didn't believe this could exist in the midst of the hot, barren Nevada countryside. Covered in the shade of a canopy of large trees, a small stream flowed along one side. Park benches lined this picturesque waterway, with a few small waterfalls. I climbed down to feel the water - it was ice cold! From snow melt (in August!) from the mountain near the property. The campers were quiet and friendly, no loud carousing. This oasis was refreshing and peaceful, having a serene view to the north. Two minor issues were some noise from Hwy 80, and no internet. We vacationed for 11 days on our trip, only spending one night at Welcome Station. Frankly, I wish we had stayed there for at least half of our vacation. Yes, the owners and the place were that nice. allan and lisa

Nancy and Steve are great! They are friendly, accommodating and attentive park owners. The grounds are just beautiful and a walk around the park, hunting for "ladybugs" is a very pleasant activity for all ages. Just passing through for a one night stay, we quickly asked Nancy if she could extend us for another evening. This park is often full, so we felt fortunate that it worked for us.... because this really is a great spot! We read the other reviews about the road noise, and this should be expected. But that's true of a lot of RV parks located along I-80 and the convenience of the location at a long smooth exit make it worth the trade. Besides, the cows, birds, and even the coyotes in the distance help remind you of what a wonderful place this is. Also, the review about "pushy" owners didn't line up with our experience at all. In fact, we found the opposite to be true. Of course, we were reminded to be respectful of the check-out time because there is a lot of watering and mowing that they need to do between campers. That's not only understandable, but the grounds are so beautiful, that we sincerely appreciate that simple rule because (as campers) we get the benefit of their hard work. My only hesitation in writing this review is that I am hopeful that we will get to pass through here again and I hope that it isn't already full before we make a reservation.

This place truly sets the standard of what an RV camp should be. Beautiful nature, streams, grass, trees, a tranquil view, great caring owners, a fire pit, full hookups, and even a ladybug treasure hunt for kids. Full of wonder. Every other RV camp we stayed at was a steep drop off from this experience.

Our Stay capped off a 5 day trip through the Great Basin. Located 8 miles west of Wells, NV, the Welcome Station was a stop along the California Trail. The owners have created a grassy park setting in a mature stand of trees. A spring fed creek runs on one side of the park, where bridges, flowers and gardens have been established. the view of Grey's Peak directly to the south and a distant view of the mountains to the north make it a relaxing spot. I-80 is very close, but the traffic wasn't bothersome. Wells, NV is close enough for gas and groceries. The bathroom and shower facilities were not open during our stay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The daytime temps were 75-80 and the nighttime cooled off nicely to 45-50. We chose a back-in site with water and 30A power for $27/night, but the large pull through sites accomodate the biggest rigs up to 100' and water, sewer and 50A power. The Welcome Station will be a planned stop each time we pass through Nevada.
