This is a beautiful, well maintained park with easy access to all the Well area attractions and a shuttle stop right at the entrance. There is easy access off of route 1. The roads are paved and wide. The pull through sites are nice but a little tight; with a mostly level gravel pad and a carpeted patio area with picnic table and also a grass area with in ground fire ring. The staff and all guests we met were all friendly. While they do allow pets there is no designated dog walk area. I would camp here again. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park, easy to find using the park's web site directions. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. The sites are gravel but have outdoor carpet right next to them with picnic tables. Our site was mostly level. We were given a site in the front area so there was a little road noise, but nothing too bad. It was quiet at night. We would definitely return. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Very well kept campground right off Route 1: very convenient to everything in the area. I felt it was a little pricey considering the pull through site was very small. Had a nice pad for the table, but little green space for the dogs and we were not allowed to put their pen on the grass. The sites back in off the highway further seemed to have more room than the "premium" site we were in. Extremely well maintained: as people pulled out, they were right there to rake the site. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Expensive but worth it. Probably best campsites and cleanest one I've ever stayed in. Trolley car is at entrance of campground. No need to use your car really. The only 10 I've ever given to any campsite. Only minor beef was our Wi-Fi didn't work but we were furthest site from the office. I'd stay there again. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Based upon some negative reviews my wife and I almost canceled our reservations, but I am glad we didn't. What a wonderful home base to explore the area. Well worth it; campground clean and well maintained, quiet. No complaints at all. Staff helpful. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our third trip to Wells and our third stay at Wells Beach Resort. It is convenient to area towns, eateries, grocery, beach, etc. Trolley stops at campground for those of you without a car. Grounds are always clean, rules are strictly enforced. WiFi was not working during our stay. The office should have given a few $ off the very high price for this inconvenience. The rates are going up every year. I am not sure if I will pay this rate again when I can stay down the road for about half price. If you want to pay, get a premium RV site in the far back section. Lots less traffic, decent space between sites, and some grass. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, clean park with friendly staff. The sites are spacious. We spent three nights there and wish we could have stayed longer as there was so much to see and do in the immediate area. The ocean was just one mile from the campground. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

We love Maine and this is a very nice former KOA campground. Very good access for our 41' M/Home. We especially liked the roomy back in site along the nicely built, stone paver wall. The sites were level with crushed gravel and a grass matted carpet (Astro turf) patio. Very well equipped camp store and helpful staff. Treed and open sites are available and there was ample room for an almost 13' tall rig. It is on the expensive side but well maintained and with such a short season they are justified. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a great park: very clean. Restaurants were everywhere. Was a good location for all the local sites. This was our second time staying here and it won't be our last. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

We were in a premium site and enjoyed it. It offered a "grass" carpet patio and backed to trees. There was plenty of room between you and your neighbor. It is close to restaurants, shopping and the Atlantic Ocean. The staff were friendly and helpful; we were able to receive our mail there from FedEx. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This place could be the poster child for what is wrong with many so-called "RV Resorts". Cold, impersonal, crammed to the gills, rude, and disinterested. The almighty dollar rules here. We arrived a few minutes early after being stuck in the famous Wells traffic jam. My husband wanted to park the RV for few moments to use our bathroom. Not a chance even though every RV parking spot for checks in was wide open. We had to get back into the traffic and drive down the road to park for 10 minutes. It's a sad commentary when a dying man can't park his RV for a couple of moments to pee. Read their rules carefully. While we didn't have a problem with it, TENT CAMPERS beware. You have to get your gear picked up and out of the way on Thursdays so they can mow the lawn. Even though you've paid for the site, if they think you left, they reserve the right to rent the site to someone else. Make sure it's very obvious you are still in possession of the site. The problem with the park is they have too many people with clipboards. Locals told us the parents owned this former KOA park and were the nicest people in the world. If you want to pay out the wazoo for a cramped noisy park and the heart of traffic, hosted by people who only care about money, this is your place. Wild horses couldn't drag us back. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park, conveniently located to the beach, which you can access via the local trolley. We were told we got the last spot available, however, that was only on weekends. The rest of the time, the spot next to us was empty. The park is spotlessly clean and the showers and laundry are very nice, although the laundry is the most expensive we have paid ($2.50 to wash and $2.50 to dry). While it lists itself as a resort, it does not have a resort feel and the spaces are very close together. We would probably check around for something more reasonable next time. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

The density of this place reminds me of my days of living in an apartment complex - people packed into almost every square foot of the property. If you want to find a large grassy area to walk your dog, good luck. As others have mentioned, it is extremely well maintained (and has great interior roads) but it has the ambiance of a college apartment house on a Friday night (continuing with my previous metaphor.) There are large numbers of seasonal sites here. This park began life as a KOA, so that will give you an idea of its design. Most of the park is NOT satellite friendly with its preponderance of trees, but the cable TV was quite good with channels up into the 90s. Wells Beach itself is crowded and parking at the beach is almost non-existent. My advice is to skip this place, and I'd also skip Wells Beach if you can. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is very clean and the sites are level, but very small. It was a very busy campground even during the weekdays. The pool is small but heated and very clean. The was no planned activities for the kids which was fine b/c there is a lot to see in the area. Bathrooms and shower were clean but very busy in the mornings. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Tent Trailer.
