Our five nights at Cane Bay were simply SWEET in every way. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary on this trip, and our stay in the tent cabins at Cane Bay was the finest in our long history of camping trips together. Cane Bay Campground is affordable, clean, private, and a convenient launching point for exploring all of St. Croix. Sleeping in the cabin in our comfortable queen bed was amazing since we could feel the breezes and hear the “nightlife” in the woods, but felt totally safe from creepy crawly things. No bugs and no humidity!
We wanted to camp in the Virgin Islands, and checked out St. John, but this facility made camping possible without the need to carry a lot of equipment. Our hosts, Jill & Bryan Updyke, thought of everything when equipping the cabins. What’s not in the cabin is likely available in the commissary. While we didn’t take advantage of the adventure package, we did enjoy the bioluminescence kayak tour at Salt Bay one evening. Bryan is an excellent tour guide, with boatloads of knowledge and a true passion for both the history and future of the island.
Our evening meals at the local restaurants (within walking distance) were excellent. We were thrilled with the food and service at Eat@CaneBay (LOVED the reggae brunch on Sunday), and the Tuesday night bingo at Off The Wall was a great experience (with the bonus of an awesome sunset). I can’t say enough about the atmosphere at the beach. Super laid back. Next time we’ll get up the energy to snorkel/dive and check out the Wall! Because we will be back!
