This is a very busy campground. Lots of in and out daily. Lots of vacationers, families, and kids. Location, location, location! Spendy!It is a one mile walk to Wells Beach. The Trolley stops at the front entrance. You can take the Trolley, with transfers, from Kennebunkport to Ogunquit and all areas in between. We took the Trolley to the beaches several times. WiFi worked well, but my Verizon signal was very weak throughout the area. Staff were efficient; I encountered nobody with an attitude. Most spaces are really close, unless you get a back-in along the right side of the campground. Maneuvers in a big rig can be a challenge. We were here for 17 nights and enjoyed our stay. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure and visit Ogunquit Beach. Big Daddys ice cream in Wells is the best ice cream in the area...trust me! I tried them all!

To start they make up the rules as they go along. So, one person will be able to pull into their campsite at 11:00AM but the next can't even be on the property until 1:00PM. Then another will be able to have two cars at their site but the next will have to pay $8.00 extra per day for their extra car. These are just two examples. I'll share my biggest complaint more soon when I have more time but it involves the complete insensitive owners which are two of the rudest people I have ever met in my life.

Another issue was that right next door there was a construction site with extremely loud noise all day long, starting at 7:00am-5:00pm. They offered no discount due to this and didn't even care.

As far as the campground. I would not call it a resort, but a nice campground. It's difficult for 40' or longer campers to get into the Premium back in sites.

The sites are clean and have nice shady areas. The pool is nice, but I could see it being too small if a lot of people showed up at one time.

There's not much at all for kids. Two very simple and run down playgrounds and a couple of arcade games, but that's really it. No activities of any kind. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been to this campground many times over the years and it is our most favorite. We usually go a little pre season when the rates are lower and its less crowded in the area. Never been disappointed with this park. Everything is so uniform and well groomed. Getting out of the park onto Rt 1 can be challenging at times, especially making a left going north. But you may get a nice driver on occasion that will give you a break.

Overall a great place ! We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

We stayed here for 5 days. We really liked this campground and perfect to see the Maine coastline. Don’t forget to visit the Portland Head Light in Portland, ME. It is about a 40 min drive up I-95 and worth your time. It is a lighthouse build in the late 1700s. The campground is well managed, clean and each site is perfect for RVs of all sizes. Great amenities like laundry and pool. The roads coming into Wells are poor but then again, all the roads are poor in New England. It is a little pricey and many of the visitors were from Canada but very friendly. The park is ideal for families and has a lot of things for kids to do including miniature golf. Their prices are rather high at the store and you can get better deals for supplies in town. There is a MacDonald’s right next door. I paid nearly $9.00 for a small bag of firewood – you can get 3 times this amount at the hardware store down the road for $5.00. The Wi-Fi was TengoInternet which we dislike but workable. One day it was great but as soon as the place filled, bandwidth dropped noticeably. We would have given them a higher rating but the sites are not level and the Internet problem drove us crazy. The best sites are the ones in the front or near the office. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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 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.

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.

The very best campground I have ever stayed in! A true resort. Clean, very well run, excellent staff. Everything was perfect. Would stay here all summer if possible. This is a MUST visit site if you're in the area. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a top notch park in our opinion. We have been here several times and always get a premium site. This year we had #140. Nice quiet and relaxing and that is what we like. This park doesn't have much for activities but is ok with us, there is enough in the area if you want it. It also has one of the cleanest laundry areas we have ever seen.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in and would highly recommend anytime you are visiting this area. While the campground is in a commercial area it is extremely quiet and we had no problem with noise. Bathrooms and showers were always clean as was the laundry area. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the best maintained and landscaped campgrounds. Good size sites,good roads. A lot of amenities if that is what you need. To high a price to stay for more than a few days. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
