Visit for a day, spend a week camping. This is a great park. Wells state park is not far from the Mass Pike, but you would never know that. A great get-away, place to stop along the way or fun for a day

A small area set aside for nature by the wells family estate. Not a big deal but cool little park to get away Nor really a destination good for a stroll. Nice to have been donated by a nice family.
