3 RV Parks near Wells, British Columbia
Aug 2017 - $42.00
Very nice park. Stayed there a couple of days while visiting Barkerville. Very friendly owner. Only a few big rig sites. Ours was convenient to get in and out of and level. Have stayed in public campground closer to Barkerville in the past but due to bad information from the public campground operator, we were told no spaces were available. Actually, the park was nearly empty. - navyflir

Hostess was very friendly and helpful. Lots of suggestions for things to do and see. $39 rate is in Canadian dollars. Limited big rig access and pull-thrus. Has expanded her sites for sewer connections. Close to Bakerville and services in Wells. Be prepared for mosquitoes. Some sites would be a little tight. Would stay there again. - Retired Papa

This is an eclectic park and the owner lives on-site. Her hospitality is wonderful and she is quite interesting to talk to about her mining in the area. The sites are gravel, rather big with fire ring and table. They are fairly private as she has put fencing in places, along with the trees, to give each site seclusion. There is no satellite or Wifi or Verizon phone service, but that didn't really surprise us as you're in the middle of the mountains. The 30 amp power worked fine. The road noise wasn't an issue at all. Barkerville is only minutes away. - Hands For Him

The park road is narrow in one place so would not recommend for larger trailers or motorhomes. Our site (the letter I) was a narrow and not level gravel back-in. There was not enough room for slide-outs. Power and water were shared with adjacent site. I had to use extra cord and hose to reach them. Power was 30 amp, but some other sites were only 15 amp. All utilities at our site worked fine. Sites J, K, L, and R were 15 amp sharing power from a twin 15 amp breaker box. Two of these sites had hoses and extension cords for connections. Most sites also had tables and fire barrels. Restrooms and showers were on the other side of the park from us. There was only one of each for each gender. Showers were $.25 for 2 minutes. The X sites are the newest, but it can be difficult backing into some of them as there are fences between sites. No TV unless you have satellite. Internet access is available in the office for $1 which gives you 10 minutes access on their computer. There were some swings and other playground equipment for the kids. I would check out the other RV park in town if ever in this area again. - Onemoretrail

The Cottonwood House Historic Site is located at km 26 on Highway 26 (to Barkerville). The Ranch offers Cabins and 10 RV sites located adjacent to the historic buildings. When driving towards Barkerville, take the second entrance road to the Roadhouse.
Posted rate is for an electric site. Dry sites are 20$. Admission to the roadhouse and a carriage barn is included. Interesting little tour and nice artifacts.
The sites are level and some can accommodate rigs up to 40' (total length). One site is pull-through, the others are back in. Two sites provide 30 amp, 2 sites only 15 amp, the others are dry. Water spigot and long hose at the washhouse in the middle of the RV-Sites.
Most sites are in the open, only a few have some shade. Nothing between sites to provide some privacy. However, since the place is almost unknown, there was only one other camper during our first stay and no one else during the second stay in August.
The whole place is very well looked after. The sites are raked and level. The restrooms and showers are modern and clean. Highway traffic is negligible and completely dies down at night. A few logging trucks in the early morning. Wi-Fi would make this place perfect but we will come back anyway. - TheSchweitzers
