Date of Stay: March, 2016
The good: Extremely well manicured, friendly hosts, nice pool, convenient. The 'okay': Sites were fairly tight with the slides out and with the plants between sites. Was a challenge to get in the backside storage bays and wet area. The bad: WiFi was intermittent, cable TV was having fuzzy picture issues (but they did order a new amplifier so it may fix it), water pressure was pretty low around 40 psi, electrical experienced brown-out on at least one occasion. We really enjoyed our time at Neapolitan and would love to return, but probably will not due to the cost. In comparison to other parks in the area, this is a pretty good value, but Naples is...Naple$. The host was very accommodating from the time we got here (and he guided us into our spot) and with any other requests we had during our stay. The winter months are going to be increasingly hard to book at this park since most of those we met are planning to come back next year and stay for the entire winter months. The park is small enough that you have a great opportunity to meet other people and establish lasting friendships. The hosts are very good to plan events as well. As others have mentioned, the pool is rather small, but so is the park, so the size wasn't an issue for us. It's a great place to get some sun and cool off on the non-beach days. This is about 15 minutes from Lowdermilk beach which we preferred over the Naples Pier. If our budget allows, we will return to this park. The rate reflects the monthly rate.

The good: Easy access, good WiFi (DSL), owner is friendly and accommodating, extremely quiet at night, good water, electric, full hookup, convenient to groceries, good area to walk (taxiway). The 'okay': The park is a cleared out circle with 16 sites all facing the center of this circle. No facilities of any kind. The bad: Some of the sites appear to be hard to level. Not aesthetically appealing...it's a place to stay if you need to be in the area. ** When we first drove past this park, we turned around and left. After staying at another park in the area in during heavy rains, we decided to give this a chance. It was actually a pretty nice place if you can get the right site. It's VERY entertaining with the runway next door and you can watch the planes (and Blackhawk helicopters) take off and land on pretty days. This can get pretty loud during busy times, but it's just during the day. At night, there is NO noise whatsoever. Very convenient to Pinehurst. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay: January, 2016
The good: Great owners, nice gift shop, good water, electric, full hookup, 'paver' sites are very level, nice furniture at each site, away from the busy Parkway noise but still close enough. The bad: Nothing during our stay! What a GREAT park! Granted, we stayed in the off-season, but loved everything about it. The story is that the current owners bought this park and put quite a bit into improvements and it shows. A walk up the hill to the cabin area does reveal that it literally backs up to a new roller coaster at Dollywood but in the off-season, they were closed. Not sure how this would affect the noise during the busy season, but it was very quiet with no road noise. The showers/bathrooms were individual rooms with a sink, toilet, and shower with separate doors for each. Very nice setup. The gift shop is actually a great boutique with lots of great 'non-camping-related' items for sale. Even though this is a relatively small park, there were two pools (closed while we were here in the winter months). The entire park sits on a steep incline but the sites are level and 'angled' which gives at least the sense of more privacy. WiFi was good but we were about the only ones in the park at the time. There are several 'full time' campers at the end of the circular loop which didn't impact our stay. Rate reflects the weekly rate with discount.
Date of Stay: November, 2015
The good: Lots of trees, quiet, good electric, clean level sites, satellite dish hookup available at some sites, beautiful lake, owner is attentive and accommodating. The 'okay': WiFi (DSL). The bad: The mile long driveway is gravel, rough, and gets muddy during rains. Well water is brown. Tight maneuvering for large rigs due to overgrown trees. The pictures on this park's website appear to be from several years ago. This park has the potential to be great with some much needed TLC. Several sites are no longer usable due to erosion and disrepair. The rate shown is based on a monthly stay.
