Description

J.W. Wells State Park offers a great combination of summer and winter sports. Overnight guests will love the myriad choices for accommodations. For guests who are looking to stay throughout the evening, there are 150 quasi-modern sites available. These all come standard with electricity, as well as plumbing and a concrete parking pad. 

Bathrooms and free showers are available just to the north of the campsite itself, and additional bathrooms are at the southern end. If this isn't quite what you're looking for, there are also three rustic sites located directly on the waters of Green Bay which means you can fall asleep and wake up to the waves. 

Visitors looking for prearranged shelter can rent one of the three rustic cabins that are built just south of the primitive sites and come complete with bathrooms, a stove, and a pullout couch. If you're attempting to bring a canine along for this trip be sure to keep them on the leash to avoid bothering other guests. 

Dogs aren't allowed to enter any of the indoor structures. A half a mile of beaches lines the bay here, creating the perfect environment for some summer fun. A public swimming area takes up the bulk of this area and is generally patrolled by safety staff so guests can splash around free from concern. 

Bathroom and shower facilities are also located here, in case you've got to get the seaweed off before you head back home. Park officials require anyone swimming to wear proper swimming attire. Dogs are allowed to enjoy the outdoor portions of the swimming area but must stay clear of the water. 

Be sure to keep your canine away from the shower facilities. In addition, do not let your dog bother other visitors or wildlife. During the wintertime, the park opens up to cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. For more information on these sports, make sure to check out the J.W. Wells State Park's website.
