Wales West is a popular RV resort, campground and railroad theme park located at 13670 Smiley Street, off of County Road 9 in Silverhill.

The park attracts RV travelers in search of mild winters and a central point from which to explore the Gulf Coast.

The park’s name (and inspiration) derives from the narrow gauge railways that still serve remote areas of Wales in Great Britain. On those “light railways,” the locomotives and cars are smaller and they run on a “narrow gauge” — the distance between the tracks is 2 feet instead of 4 feet, 8½ inches for a standard railroad.

Rail Events Inc. is the industry leader in rail-related special events management. In 2016, licensed events hosted over 1 million guests at 50 partner railroads in the United States, Canada and the UK. Rail Events Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Heritage Railways, which is the premier operator of heritage railroads in the United States.
