We stayed here for 3 nights camping. The location is excellent for Pompeii and only a 30 min drive to Mt Vesuvius. You could take a shuttle bus to Vesuvius from the camp ground but it costs significantly more than it would to drive, pay for parking and pay for entry tickets.
The grounds are quite charming, with orange trees and lots of greenery and the price for two adults camping with our car next to our tent cost €22 per night so €66 for 3 nights. I found this quite reasonable as it is a tourist spot. The hot water for the showers was nice and hot. They had a decent wifi connection that cost €2 for 1 hour, €5 for 24 hours, or €10 for 72 hours. After the 3rd night the wifi is free. I think €10 for 3 days is pretty affordable.
Unfortunately there was also some negatives. The bathrooms were not the cleanest - the first time I went to shower there in the female showers there was animal droppings in the corner of the shower cubicle! They were too small to be one of the campsite cats but too big to be a mouse or rats and thankfully not human. There was no hot water to wash dishes in, the shop and restaurant on site (though not sure If they are affiliated) was quite expensive, and the campsite backs onto a train station so this can get a little noisy. However the worst thing about the campsite was the staff. They could barely bring themselves to look up from the computer or their mobile phone to assist you when you entered reception.
All in all an average run campsite in a great location for an okay price.
