Wells State Park is located in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, near the center of the state. It is easily accessible from the Massachusetts Turnkpike – simply take exit 9 from either direction and follow the signs. The park encompasses 1,400 acres and is open year round with camping available from May through the middle of October.
This popular state park was established in July, 1968 to preserve the area’s inherent beauty and native species of plants and wildlife. In keeping with this goal all of the trails are for pedestrians, horseback riding and mountain bikes only – no motorized vehicles may be used. There are more than ten miles of established trails throughout the park for hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Wells State Park is simply a great place to relax and unwind while enjoying nature.
