Nestled in the heart of Massachusetts lies the lushly forested Wells State Park. Just 15 minutes away from Southbridge and under 40 minutes away from the rural town of Grafton, the park is surrounded by exciting cities filled with national treasures. Established in 1968, the park contains some of Massachusetts’ best-kept secrets, such as the hike to historic Carpenter Rocks or the rich fishing beneath the Walker Pond waters.
With 1,400 acres of stunning greenery to explore, Wells State Park campers can expect their days to be filled with boating, biking, hiking, swimming, and some of that lovely New England air. Book an RV in Worcester County today to experience peaceful Massachusetts.
Inside the park is the crystal-clear Walker Pond, where the abundant fish population makes for an angler’s paradise. Expect to see any variety of largemouth bass, yellow or white perch, bluegill, pumpkin-seed, white suckers, or brown bullhead fish in the promising waters. Surrounded by a clean and refreshing atmosphere, prop up your fishing rod on the mossy bank of the water and listen to the relaxing sounds of birds singing while waiting for the pull of a tug on your line.
If you can’t get enough of swimming, grab that swimsuit from your RV rental and jump into Walker Pond! Offering out-of-the-way swimming on a golden sand beach, you'll want to bring the kids and host a fun sandcastle competition, or toss around a frisbee on the welcoming sand. With nearby hot showers to rinse off in after, Walker Pond offers a delightful way to spend the day.
Discover the Carpenter Rocks Trail on the park's one-and-a-half-mile hike, where the northern pine forest lets off a warm, sweet scent for the traveling soul. Named after John Carpenter, a local sawmill owner and builder, the trail offers breathtaking views of Walker Pond and the woodland valley. Often a popular spot for visitors camping at Wells State Park in autumn, the hike lights up with soft reddened hues, making for the ideal spontaneous photoshoot location.
Although Wells State Park offers many natural luxuries, motorhome camping is still one of the top reasons that tourists come clamoring to the park. Situated comfortably near a calm oak-hickory forest and offering over 50 RV sites with sizes up to a 30-foot pull-through, the campground gives you the option to pick a waterfront view. Take a deep breath and take a dip in the camper-exclusive waters, or roast a marshmallow at your personal campsite fire ring.
Hot showers and flush toilets are available for your personal needs, as there are no hookups provided for your camper rental. Feel free to bring up to four of your furry friends, too. Pets are welcome, as long as they're leashed and attended.
Just ten minutes away from the park is New England's largest outdoor living history museum, Old Sturbridge Village, where you'll have the rare opportunity to experience life in the 19th century. Drink a cup of hot apple cider and watch an artisan craft a powerful weapon from iron, or take a trip to the working farms of the village to catch a glimpse of a farmer hard at work. Walk the dirt streets of the town and interact with knowledgeable historians donned in period clothing. View some of the inspiring exhibits or activities sprinkled throughout town or snap a photo of some of the water-powered mills, trade shops, or historical buildings. You'll have a hard time leaving the swirl of activity that the village offers.
Dive even deeper into the early 1800s while touring the Freedom Trail in Boston, Massachusetts’ capital. Nationally recognized for over 250 years of history, the trail is a must-see for Americans and tourists alike. With over two miles of historic sites to explore, you'll be led by an animated guide in full costume. Stand by the sobering Boston Massacre Site or towering Bunker Hill Monument and remember some of the most important times in America's history. You'll have the opportunity to stand right where the Boston Tea Party began at the Old South Meeting House, a Puritan meeting house that drew historical figures such as Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Phillis Wheatley into frequent attendance. From libraries to famous museums, this trail makes for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
On your way back to Wells State Park, you can stop at one of many grocery stores or gas stations to fill up your rental RV in Sturbridge. Dining in the area includes seafood, steak, Italian, Thai, or traditional American. Make it dinner and a show with a visit to the intriguing Stageloft Repertory Theater, where a talented group of actors performs a new show every month. Whatever strikes your fancy, you won’t regret a trip to the beautiful state of Massachusetts.
