This is a beautiful NFS campground in the mountains. Sites are large and well spaced with good views. Access road, interior roads and camp sites are all paved. The access road was fairly steep but in excellent condition. Was able to get some Verizon signal for voice/text but not data. Will definitely come here again. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Just eight miles from Wells where there is a good supermarket, Roy's, near the freeway underpass.

Although staff was polite and friendly, this CG is vastly overpriced. Gravel spots are tight and not all that level or very clean. Cable TV was unusable at our spot. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is at 6800 ft about 8 miles south of Wells, NV. The temperature in Wells was 94 degrees and the temperature was tolerable at Angel Creek, especially after the sun set behind the mountain. The campsites spaces are rather small and not that level, but the distance between sites is generally very generous. The campsites had a number of water locations and the warning mentioned in a previous review has been removed (we drank the water). If you don't mind driving a few miles off the highway to be away from the other commercial campgrounds with no hook-ups, this is a great place. There is a second campground at Angel Lake (8800ft) about four miles up the road, but the road does become steeper and tighter towards the top. Those sites would be great in a small camper or tent (generally 30ft or less). Angel Lake was beautiful for our evening hike. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Make the trip up to Angel Lake. Check the directions before you follow your GPS, which tried to send us down some back roads. Make the approach from the Wells exit.

Beautiful Forest Service CG above (about 7,000') Wells. Sites are gravel, sort of level, private with fire pits and picnic tables. There are a couple of sites that larger rigs can get into. The drive up from Wells is a good haul, some 8 to 10% grades, but well worth it. Be sure to drive up to Angel Lake (not in your RV) for some spectacular views and, if you enjoy fishing, the lake is home to both Rainbow and Cutthroat. The CG is a popular spot for locals and can get busy on weekends but is still quiet. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

US Forest Service campground in lovely setting in mountains above Wells. No hookups and be sure you have water before you come. There was a water faucet but it had a warning sign stating to boil the water 15 minutes before using it. We detached the 5'ver and drove our truck up to Angel Lake where there is another campground. We were glad we did. The road up the mountain to Angel Lake has gorgeous views but has some tight turns. Not recommended for big rigs. Plus the campsites at Angel Lake are small, though we were told later there were two sites long enough for bigger RVs but how big I'm not sure. We were happy at Angel Creek which had lovely views looking across the Ruby Mountains. We would camp here again. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful, old-fashioned "Campground" where wildlife is right at your doorscreen--bugs, birds, and deer. The access road is steep and winding; interior roads are narrow but well-paved. Most spaces are too small for our 32' Airstream, but arriving early in the afternoon we found a couple that worked. Dry camping and vault toilets, but the elevation is high enough to be comfortable without A/C, even in July. DO NOT take an RV andy further up the mountain, but DO go up the mountain to see Angel Lake--stunning alpine scenery in the middle of the Nevada Desert.
