Welcome Station RV Park is about 8 miles west of Wells, Nevada directly off I-80. We were hesitant at first to stay here but had read so many great reviews about the place we decided to give it a try. Excellent choice by us, we might add!!
The owners were full-time RVers for 16 years and then found this beautiful property to run their business. It is a gorgeous location and a little piece of paradise.
We were greeted upon arrival, given information about the park, and escorted to our site. Our site was a pull thru site with some nice shade from the large trees.
RV Park: Welcome Station RV Park
Location: Wells, Nevada (about 8 miles west)
Site: 6 (Pull thru)
Services: FHU (50AMP)
Comments: A beautiful campground located directly off I-80 with easy access. The campground was well cared for and a delight to walk around and enjoy.
There are a number of pull thru sites in the center of the park and additional back-in sites on the grass on both sides along with a few tent sites. The grounds are meticulously manicured and watered. We saw people working most of the day on the grounds. It is beautiful.
The Welcome Museum is a small museum dedicated to the history of Welcome, Nevada. It is a very interesting museum and also provides a Walking Tour (based on a QR code scan on your phone) to help you learn more about Welcome!
There are some fields with hay and cattle behind the RV park and provide excellent views.
There is a Ladybug Hunt where you search for 12 ladybug painted rocks based on a QR code you scan on your phone. You are given scavenger hunt clues to help you locate them. You collect a secret prize if you complete it successfully!
Not only if there a ladybug hunt but there are real ladybugs there. The owner explained to us that this year they have had a tremendous amount of ladybugs on their grounds. There were areas covered with the ladybug larvae just waiting to transform into a ladybug. It is a sure sign of a healthy garden. We saw a number of birds and even a small garter snake.
The park is full of painted rocks, murals, and cute signs. There is always something to look at.
There are a few gardens here and there which you can wander around. They look well cared for and had sitting areas next to them where you could relax and enjoy.
The park is full of huge old growth willow trees that are magnificent. The owners take care of the lawn with a green thumb and with the shade of the huge trees it made quite a sight. There is a small creek running throughout the property called Trout Creek with nice sitting areas scattered around to sit and relax.
The park is so beautiful we could not resist taking selfies around all the big beautiful trees.
The sky was changing constantly. We had sunny beautiful skies then sometimes dark cloudy skies and then some beautiful sunsets.
What a fabulous RV/campground. It is a high desert oasis paradise and well worth the stop. The hosts were warm and friendly and the setting was s idyllic!
