This is a small park convenient for an overnight stop off I-80. FHU pull through 50 amp site was a bit tight (narrow). If we had put out our big awning it would have extended into the adjoining site. Wifi worked well, cable TV included in the rate. Our picnic table sat next to our neighbor's sewer hookup. We would return if in the area. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK place to stay for an overnight, not much to do or see in Wells. Small park, roads a bit tight but ok for our 35 ft 5th wheel. Gravel sites and roads. Office employee friendly and knowledgeable. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Construction in progress on freeway, on ramp closest to park westbound was closed and we had to loop around to freeway entrance to the east. Only a mile or so, not big deal. Construction can't last forever although sometimes you wonder.

Potholes and dirt/mud...my first impression along with getting barked at by yappy dogs while checking in. Utilities did work. There are a lot of permanent residents, while not a problem it does result in noise in the AM as they leave for work. We would try a different park across the interstate next time should be in the area again. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Staff very helpful at check-in and with need for assistance to help finding tire business in area. Had an pull-through end site, making it easy to get in/out. Many in park work for gold mining industry but were friendly although some rigs are older. Park full by evening. Bathrooms/showers were very clean. Would stay at park when in area again.

Tips for other Campers:

Market is nearby but did not need; library across the street. Although largest town in area, there are limited businesses in area. If you need specialized work for rig/tow vehicle Elko is best destination.

Most of the park was filled with full time residents. That didn't turn out to be much of a problem. There's not a lot to chose from in this area, and this was for one night. Woman in the office was very nice. The bathrooms and showers were some of the nicest we had seen on our whole trip. It was surprising because this is not the fanciest of RV parks.

These bathrooms & showers are Very clean. The owner hosts are extremely kind & hard working. They are very nice people & the only ones in Wells, Nevada, that accept tents! This was a Lifesaver for us. We were tired & needed somewhere to sleep so were very happy to find this location. The office closes at 9 pm, they do have laundry quarters, & try to help all you can. We were allowed to use a 30 amp adapter for our tent that helped us charge our phones, etc. Very good people run this RV campground. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Tent.

I lived at this park as a monthly from October to March.The park is 35 years old and shows it. The spaces are small and you must unhook to park.The space was unlevel and sloped at about 4 per cent. The parking area is not on the RV park property. During rain or snow it becomes slimy mud with six inch deep ruts. All hours of the night trains run about 100 yards away from the park. There is a crossing and they blow their horns all night long and the park shakes. The out dated electrical system in the park did not even have a place to plug in a 110 heat tape. There was no heat tape on the water hook ups. I froze up the first night and had to buy a very long heat tape and insulation for his water hook up myself, and ran a drop cord under my RV. Using the out side plug on my RV to power it. A very old cracked breaker shorted out and fried the prongs on my 30 amp RV cord. Of course he claimed I was running two electric heaters in the March T shirt weather that fried his 35 year old cracked breaker. He also claimed my power cord was fried before I came there all untrue. The guy has serious anger and self control issues. He will and did physically attack myself and screamed for his wife to bring him a gun. He lied to the local yokel good ole boy cops in Wells and turned a 911 call from my wife into the good ole boys deciding I was the aggressor. I left the same day and he still owes me for ten days rent.The park is for sale and I hear it is upgrading so maybe some grading of the spaces electrical updates and getting rid of the mental case managing it will make it a desirable RV park. Until then I suggest steer clear of the place. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We chose this RV park because it had 50 amp service (didn't have our 50 to 30 converter with us), only 30 amp in all other parks in Wells or Jackpot. The lady in the office was very friendly and answered all my questions. The sites were close but wide enough for our slides. No grass (this is desert) but a few shade trees. Large area to walk your dog(s). The restrooms were very clean and had several stalls and showers, also warm. Downside were the trains that ran though nearby during the night, at least 4 (the reason for a rating of 8). We really didn't notice because we were so tired. Other than that the park was quiet. I have to comment on the Chinese restaurant next door. Some of the best food we have ever had, the owner/chef makes everything from scratch, including the cocktail sauce which was delicious. We would stay at this park again. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Motorhome.

We just needed an overnight stop and this was the first park we came to after getting off the interstate. Our first impression of the park was good. There was a comfy ambiance to it and the people in the office were friendly. Checking in was easy. The sites were narrow, but since we have a small travel trailer this wasn't a problem for us. The restrooms were somewhat old, but overall were in good condition and very clean. The park is in close proximity to a train track and about six or seven trains went by during our time there - they can be quite loud. The park has many permanent residents and quite a few of them are living in poorly kept up rigs with lots of stuff stored around their sites. A neighbor's yappy dog, kept tied up outside, kept us awake at night. The park Wi-Fi was not working well and we could only get an internet connection by taking our laptop down to the office. This was an OK park for one night but we would probably check out other places if we ever need to stay in Wells again. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed 2 nights and will not be back. We were here 2 years ago and there appears to be quite a change. About 2/3 of the spots are full time residents with some very rundown trailers, etc. One guy lives in a small van. Tight spots. Nice people and to be honest, we had no trouble with any of the residents, but this is not what we RV for. Noisy at 6:15 in the morning as some were going to work. Back across the fwy for us next time. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a nice experience here. Owners were very friendly. Electric was just upgraded. WiFi worked well. Smaller sites, but was just fine in our 33" TT without having to unhook. There were quite a few permanent residents, most seemed to work in the Elko gold mine. Not your resort-style place, but I was only overnighting here. I would do it again without hesitation.

For Wells, this is one of the best parks in the area. Sites are close and there is a tight turn as you come around the bath/laundry house. Some trees are close to your rig. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Good on and off of I-80. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older park in need of some TLC. It would be a great stop over for one or two nights but we will not be staying here again as the sites were to narrow for us to have all our slides out. The park roads and sites are gravel. Most sites have a tree but this is high desert and the trees are short which caused the problems with our slide. If you are in a smaller rig this is a great place to overnight, larger rigs need to pass this one by. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shaded sites in a desert area. Long pull thrus where you can leave your tow vehicle attached if leaving the next day. Big clean bathrooms and showers. Giving it a 9 due to the fact that the site we pulled into at first had no electricity they did move us to another site. Could also have used a playground area for children. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
