During the summer and fall the lakeside town of Naples comes alive with visitors eager to soak up a bit of Maine charm. Bounded by Long Lake and Brandy Pond with a tiny downtown that splits the bodies of water, Naples caters to water sport enthusiasts and those looking for a relaxing lakeside escape.
The downtown Causeway area is packed with antique shops, restaurants, art galleries, gift shops and two miniature golf courses. It is also the place to rent boats, kayaks or jet skis, buy a ticket for a sea plane ride, or catch a ride on the 300-passenger Songo River Queen - replica of a Mississippi River stern paddle wheeler. Naples 18 hole Golf Course is located on Rt 114 less than a mile from the campground.
For evening entertainment, establishments on the Causeway offer live music, and the nearby Bridgeton Drive-In shows first-run movies on two screens under the stars. Those looking for more water to play in can visit Sebago Lake, the state’s second largest lake, only minutes from the park.
Naples also plays host to the Blues’ Festival every Father’s Day weekend and has one of the best 4th of July Fireworks displays in the area!
Naples is in the heart of the Lakes Region but is better known for it’s proximity to the White Mountains or the salty Maine Coast. All the beauty of Maine only a short drive from here. Experience day trips but return here for the charm only a small town can offer!
