    We started planning our trip to the USVI nearly 2 years ago. After looking at many, many expensive hotels that rarely receive more than 2 or 3 stars, I started looking for something off the beaten path. We love being outdoors and are avid campers, so the campground was absolutely perfect for us. We rented the suite and a cottage... More

    Great island for relaxing. Very easy to get to from St. Thomas airport. Cabins and kitchen pavilion have amazing views and all necessary amenities. Had previously been to Maho Bay campground on St. John which unfortunately closed and the Virgin Islands Campground is an excellent replacement.

    We loved, loved, loved the location of the campground as well as the amenities. The campground is quiet, beautiful, full of lush flowers and everything you need for a great vacation.

    Your review was amazing, but I especially liked your title. Some people don't know about glamping. It is often a great compromise for the guest who wants to camp an their partner who does not want to camp...we usually win over the non camper with our glamping facility. Thank you for bring attention to that 'side" of our facilities. Sincerely,... More

    A quiet peaceful island just a short ride from Charlotte Amalie. The cottage was larger than expected and the trade winds were always blowing. The community kitchen was a good place to meet and socialize with other guests. Keep in mind that this is an eco-cottage and water conservation is included. Where else can you watch a movie (Monday nights)... More

    Traveling as a family can be tricky, especially when the kids are in their teens and are always on their devices. Add in red hair, fair skin and a pronounced aversion to hot weather and there is a potential for disaster on a trip to the tropics with limited technological access. However, from the moment we set foot on Water... More
