Very seldom do I say that I absolutely love an RV park, but I really did love this one. I'm more of a "Glamper", so a super clean campground is very important to me. They have great security, are family and pet friendly and the trolley stops right at the campground. They allow campers to enjoy themselves , but that should not to be confused with letting campers get away with being ridiculous and rowdy. They do have campground personnel occasionally driving around day and night to keep an eye on things.

The daily rate for this campground is the highest that I've ever paid in New England but in my opinion was worth it. Although there were many open sites during the week, they could probably fill them up if they dropped the price a bit. I stayed twice during the summer and saw lots of empty sites during the week both times. During the weekends the place was packed. They have tent sites and RV sites. If you have an RV that's 25 feet or longer, I suggest you get a deluxe or premier site. My only complaint is the fire pit seemed to be more on my neighbor side than on mine and my neighbors fire pit was close to our vehicle.

To be honest, I was a little skeptical about this campground because I had read some previous reviews which caused me to have concerns, namely that some of the office staff had bad attitudes. However, they were ok during my stay. My only comment is that they are very busy during check-in and people should cut them some slack. That said, they still need to smile more and remember they are in the hospitality industry. Word-of-mouth goes a long way. When you're nice to the campers they will return. Overall this is a great campground. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is so much to do in the area. The trolley stops at the entrance to the campground which can take you to the beach, shops or to restaurants. There is miniature golf located at the entrance to the campground. The shopping plaza is within walking distance.

I loved this place 47 years ago when it was a KOA and it has only gotten better and better each time I have been here. Friendly staff, almost new amenities, clean sites. It's central to everything in the area, Ogunquit, Kennebunk, and not a long drive to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The only thing keeping it from being a 10 are the lack of a dog park and some umbrellas at the pool. WELL worth the stay. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Mini Golf - MUST EAT AT MAINE DINER in Wells, near Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, Wells Beach, worth a drive to Portsmouth. For ice cream? Visit the Scoop Deck. Enjoy!

A large park with tiered campsites. Very clean and very well maintained. This is a great place to go to if you like to visit the various little communities in the area, such as Kennybunkport, Wells and others. Our site was up a hill, but relatively level and not too close to our neighbors. We had Wifi which was good - some of the time - and cable TV. In comparison to some to the other campgrounds that we saw, this one is a real gem. The beach is about a mile away, with public parking available. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and stores in the area, so we weren't lacking for anything. However, don't be in a hurry to get anywhere quickly, especially during the summer months. Traffic can be a challenge. We would definitely stay here again. We opted for a 30 Amp site, which was adequate for us since the weather was cool and we spent little time in our RV. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the fourth time we have stayed here and really enjoy it, especially during the off season. Staff is great, sites are well taken care of, electric, water, sewer and cable all work well. We will keep coming back. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground! We stayed on a Premier RV site which was $82-90 depending on what day of the week you are staying. I'm glad we spent the extra money because the Premium and Deluxe RV sites would be very tight for any motorhome. Location is very convenient to beaches and restaurants. Wifi isn't the greatest....can't always connect, and it's rather slow. Pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was here. We will definitely be back!

Nice park! Clean sites. Older staff helpful, younger staff friendly. Water pressure good, but had sediments (make sure to have a screen on the connector). Electricity good and cable good. WiFi had strong signal but only work one day of our four day stay. The office staff blamed TengoNet for the lack of service. I would expect the park to make sure the service works, it's part of the package offered and charged for. ATT 4G was also weak at this location.

Visiting friends in the area, so made reservations here because of their proximity and listed amenities. Their website is misleading and not true. Very close together sites with fire rings practically on top of you. Advertised "HEATED POOL" is only 79 degrees. Clerk said it's too cool at night to get it warmer. (Weather has been in the upper 80's for days and 60's at night). No activities. Very over-rated & over-priced for a so-called "RV RESORT." We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a rather expensive campground. I am put off by campgrounds who charge per kid ($10 per night). I have 4 kids and you can do the math. But the location and cleanliness were good. Campsites are tight and barely fit the tow vehicle on site with trailer. Very strict with quiet hours and fires are put out at 11:30. The bathrooms were clean but a little dated. I really don’t have to many complaints. Sites were raked after previous camper left. Staff in office/store where very friendly. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a clean, well organized campground. There are many employees around to make sure the day runs smoothly. Each site is cleaned before a new camper arrives. Wells Resort has a clean laundry room and a nice-enough store. The swimming pool is a bit on the small side, but again, well maintained. There are several different tiers of campsites available. The least expensive are the sites closest to the road. I would not want these sites. Too cramped and too close to the road. All of the other sites seemed fine to me. The most expensive sites, the ones to the back, had the most room. There are free movies every Wednesday and Saturday evening, otherwise, there were no planned activities. Wells Resort is a part of the trolley system. This system runs through Wells and connects to several near-by towns. There is a $1.00 fee per person every time you get on the trolley. Children under 18 years old are free, and you can buy a $3.00 pass for the day. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

We were in a premier RV site. This was a back-in site on the perimeter of the campground. Spot was flat level gravel, with grass on one side and a carpeted patio on the other. There was a table and fire pit. The spot was about 70 feet long. Access roads were paved and easy to maneuver on. Internet was Tengo internet and even though free, the internet was very slow and kept kicking me off. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very convenient campground to all the little coastal towns and beaches. We were out front where it is not very pet friendly, can not put dog pen on grass, only gravel and since our 40 foot unit left little room on the gravel the dogs couldn't be out. It is quite pricey as well. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mature trees make this park not satellite friendly. Rules are not enforced for workcampers. Was concerned for fires not being put out; security who goes around to check left early. Office staff did not care. Could not open windows because of smoke. With not much space between sites fire is a concern. This used to be a great park. It has lost its appeal and we will be looking for a different park. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.
