Overpriced. Especially during "leaf-peeping" season where they offer no discounts. Colombus day the park was maybe 60% full. This appears to be an old KOA. Lower sites are right along busy and noisy main road, upper sites are much much quieter. Trees everywhere so don't expect to get a dish working except "possibly" in their most expensive spots. Sites are level, dirt and gravel. At the least bit of rain, you'll be tracking sand into your coach. Sites are close and your neighbors will be right outside your window. Hope they don't use the campfire ring although many do. Upper sites do feel like camping in the woods (aside from the proximity of other campers). The two best features of this place are: 1) location and 2) WiFi. Location is right next to McDonalds and RiteAide, across from Hannafords grocery, movie theatres, restaurants, brewery, and just a mile from Wells Beach. Ogunquit and Kennebunkport are just a few minutes away. WiFi is free, strong, and very useable. Among the top WiFi we've had nationwide. Our site was barely long enough for our 39' RV and our jeep IF we parked the jeep sideways (not easy due to rocks and trees at the entrance of each site). Pricewise even with the location and the region, I felt like it was still a bit overpriced. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great walking trails at Wells Beach National Estuary/Laudholm Trust just north of the campground and along the Marginal Way in Ogunquit. Also, Hannafords will steam fresh lobsters for free, so get them at the supermarket and eat them at home vs. paying 3x - 5x for the same lobster at one of the restaurants.

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!

Stayed here on our way up to Bar Harbor and then our return south. Nice campground that is great for overnight stops. Going up and back, we had a full shade FHU level site both times. All facilities were clean and worked properly. CG staff very helpful and friendly. No escort to site. Verizon and ATT, both voice and data get overloaded this time of year. Campground WiFi worked fine. They has an unusual login process, so if you're not real good with computers, you'll have to have them help you. Lots of Canadians this time of year. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Although there is a local Shuttle service, we did not use it. We were told it was very good. Wells and Kennibunk are joined at the hip. Ogonquit is not considered a part of Wells, so you'll need to pick up separate tour information. Eat at Mike's, Billy's and the Maine Diner while you're in town.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Sites were very nice - some shaped and some not. We were part of a group and they provided a meeting area. Owner is not nice and yelled at several members of our group. Way to many rules and regulations. But, yes, we would definitely stay there again as the park was great. You should definitely consider staying here. It is about 1 mile from the beach and next door to McDonalds. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Great location! If you're "camping" and want a destination park or rustic experience in the woods of Maine, go inland. If you're "traveling" up the coast with kids and want a great base camp in the middle of everything (between the Rite Aid Drugstore and McDonalds), this CG will make you happy. Interior roads are paved and sites are gravel. Deluxe sites in back are level, shaded, and have huge concrete patios. Stayed 3 nights and had no problems. Very safe. Appears to be the nicest park in the area. Whale watching in Kennebunkport is only 20 minutes away. Will stay here next year. We camped at Wells Beach Resort Campground in a Motorhome.
