This was a wonderful place to stay. Our room had a nice view of Limestone Bay, which provided a wonderful ocean sound as we slept. The cottages, kitchen, and bathroom facilities were well maintained and were very clean. Close walking distance to the ferry, Honeymoon Beach, and Limestone Beach. My husband and I loved the community feel of the place... More

Just returned from 4 days at Deborah and Paul's V.I. Campground and we wish we could have stayed forever. Their location is by far the best on Water Island. You are a stone's throw from the trails to Limestone Beach and Honeymoon Beach and equally close to the Ferry Dock. This was our first experience with an eco conscious vacation,... More

In January 2014 my husband, Peter, and I returned to the V.I. Campground -- our fourth visit in as many years. As it has from the beginning, it felt like coming home. Deborah and Paul were welcoming, as always, and had saved us our favorite tent-cottage. Sean, whom we hadn't met before, insisted on carrying our bags. We shed our... More

This is what we call the vacation. To quote Jesse Ventura: "I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and I go to bed in the evening with half of it done". We had a wonderful time, everything we needed was right at our reach. The name "Campground" is misleading. There are actually 6 cottages- each one with... More

My wife and I stayed at the Virgin Islands Campground in July and really enjoyed many aspects of it, although we believe that visitors should have a clear understanding of what they are getting before they book a stay. This place offers a lot for a great price, but we feel that the website doesn’t clearly explain that it is... More

As the owner of this property, one of the most rewarding experiences is sharing these “new” sustainable experiences with our guests and showing our guests that conserving our natural resources is “not so bad”… We know that having to...

When we started looking for a vacation, I wanted something different. No hotel room. No Busy streets. Virgin Island Campground was perfect. A short Ferry ride from St Thomas, Paul met us at the dock and drove us up to the Campground. It was everything I saw online, beautiful views, quite, and the rooms bring in the wonderful breeze from... More

Thank you so for taking time to write a review of the Virgin Islands Campground.
