3 Parks near Wells, British Columbia
Jul 2016 - $35.00
The primary purpose in visiting Wells is to see Barkerville, a short 8km drive down the road. Although the campground lacks services found in other parks the owner has done a good job of maintaining cleanliness and providing privacy among guests. This is perhaps the best park for the area and purpose of the journey. - Semiretired

We stayed here 3 nights for the 1st time. This is a nice little park in a perfect setting. Not too many full hookup sites so if you need full service, book early. Owner is a great host and has done an awesome job of putting this campground together from scratch. Gold panning is part of the deal an fits right in with the area. Will come back to do more exploring of this interesting area of BC. - ddrichter

Quirky little campground in Wells. Joy's campground fits right in with the atmosphere of Barkerville and the gold rush. She is very friendly and always ready with a story about the area. She makes everyone feel welcome and at home. We stay every year. - chris-p

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
