    Arrived at Wells “Beach” Resort 10 minutes prior to the check in time and was told to leave and come back or pay a $10.00 “early check in fee”. Since there was no room to turn around without unhooking, I paid the extra fee in addition to their regular fees which are the highest in the area even though I could see that our reserved site was unoccupied. The sites here sites are crowed and, IMO, the campground is way overrated, noisy (located right on busy Rt. 1 with no setback for the front area). The owners attitude is that they will get you for all they can as they fill the place up all summer. We have since found bigger, better area resorts with better amenities and friendly owners and staff who appreciate your business. Personally, I willnot go here again.
