Tucked into a little stream valley a short walk to Cane Bay Beach are 4 little eco-tents. Deer, mongoose, birds, and little lizards galore! Local peacocks, peahens, guinea fowl, and chickens wandered through our spot as we relaxed under 2 huge rain trees. The amenities were simple and adequate. The facilities spotless. Nearby is wonderful Cane Bay Beach with its... More

Cane Bay Campground is exactly as advertised: clean, well-equiped, relaxed, private, and quite comfortable. The futon bed was really firm, and after a couple of nights, we were having a hard time getting comfortable while sleeping. Maybe we're just getting old, but I would have loved a memory foam mattress topper! I highly recommend ear plugs as nature is noisy... More

I brought a group of 11 to St. Croix and we took all 4 of the Updykes' tent cabins for a week. Every one of us left saying we would do the same thing again next time. True, my group was experienced backpackers/campers already, so not having electricity is normal to us. But the tent cabins do have battery or... More

This was exactly what we hoped for. The cabins were just as they appear in the photos...well, better in real life. Well equipped, comfortable, private and a short distance to the bathrooms (separate), beach, and cafe. This sort of "glamping" is not for everyone but such a great way to enjoy the island on a budget. Jill and Bryan were... More

This small private campground was a dream. We had a private bathroom and shower less than a minute walk from our cabin. The beach was only another minute or two down the path. We would have been happy to never leave this grounds. Rainforest, Sandy beach, phenomenal snorkeling, virgin kayak bio luminescent tour, dive shop, camp kitchen, and the several... More

This was the best part of the best vacation ever! We spent 2 weeks in the Virgin Islands and 5 of those days were at Cane Bay Campground. It was a beautiful camp site with everything you could possibly need included. Jill and Bryan are amazing humans, just try to keep up with them, they're living whirlwinds! I literally cannot...

It was an amazing experience to stay with Jill and Bryan at Cane Bay Campground. Super clean and comfortable. Being able to stay in the forest and yet walk 2 to 3 minutes to the beach was cool. The new restroom facilities far exceeded our expectations and are much closer to the cabins. You will experience the sights and sounds... More

This spot is absolutely wonderful and look forward to going back sometime soon! The entrance to the campsites are about 100 yards from Cane Bay's beach. The shower house/bathrooms are at the entrance of the grounds. There are four cabins that are about 50-100 yards down a path in the woods, but still close enough you can just hear the... More

We hit the vacation jackpot by finding this unique gem on St. Croix. Unlike so many places, the Virgin Kayak campground run by the awesome Jill and Bryan Updyke is exactly as advertised and pictured on their website. It’s super clean and close to the beautiful beach with all the amenities listed and then some. It’s rustic and quaint and... More

We had such a wonderful time staying in these lovely camping cabins that we plan on returning in March of next year. Jill and Brian are an amazing couple who gave us a great Adventure Week. And the cabins are so well thought out in terms of their design and what they include. For example, we were there in July... More
