“Scenic, quiet, affordable - June 2013”
Review of Wells State Park

Reviewed June 10, 2013

We only stayed here 1 night on our way to Quabbin to go fishing. We were given Site 26, since we were looking for something a little more isolated.
Pros:
It was a great spot, and we had no neighbors to our right or in front of us. Our site was very spacious. It was a very short walk to the bathroom. The bathroom near us had 2 toilets and a free shower. All of it was relatively clean. The staff did a quick drive-by during quiet hours and that was the last we heard of them. They left us alone which was good. Each site has a fire ring and a charcoal grill stand.
Cons:
We could hear cars in the middle of the night sometimes. They were far off as if coming from a local road or the highway. The only site that seemed bad was Site 1 which has a road to the left and right, and no trees in front or the left or right.
Great place that I would certainly visit again!

We are frequent campers at Wells State Park. If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful, no frills camp-out, then this is the spot.
Wells is always well kept and clean. The Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The cost is wallet friendly. (We book through ReserveAmerica and it's $32.00 for two nights)
This is not a "built in swimming pool, rec hall" kind of place. Hiking, fishing and relaxing are the name of the game here. Booked our first weekend for next week. Can't wait!

Although I have friends who have been camping there (they are locals and introduced their young children to camping and wanted a nearby local spot in case weather or crankiness turned the experience negative), I have used the park for a nice, long peaceful walk in all seasons. Clean, peaceful, and some nice hills for some good exercise.

Great place to take the dogs for a walk with kids. Nice short walk to sit on the water or nice clean trails to hike on. People are always friendly and the park is well respected by locals and visitors alike.

It is a very nice park, with a lake to swim in and fish out of. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails that cover a fair amount of range. You won't be doing any mountain climbing on the trails but some of them can get you winded pretty easily. There are some really nice views when you are hiking and we have seen some very interesting birds and animals on our hikes. They have a lot of fresh water access and bathrooms are pretty easy to get to. They don't have electrical hookups so if are looking to stay at a home away from home then this won't be the place unless you have a generator that is muted. I don't usually think of camping as having absolutely everything from home but I know some do.
