Camped May 15-21, 2013. Baresite, #60. I've camped many places, deserts, mountains, beaches, so not new to camping. I camped solo on this trip. First off note that this campground is on one of the most beautiful beaches/parts of St John. So it definitely has location going for it. Transportation (if you have no car) to/from Cruz Bay to the...

A disappointing visit to an island we know well, cinnamon bay camp ground's staff was at best cordial and at worst unfriendly and unhelpful (with the exception if the water sports hut). The food was okay but you were rarely guaranteed you'd get what your ordered and while the location is A+, it's a hard balance to the general unwelcoming...

If I was the type that only liked clean 5* hotels then I would not rate this place more than a two but you can't go to a place like this and rate it for what it isn't. That being said, You can't ask for much more in a camp site. We got the beach cottage, 9A. It is a...

We stayed in a tent site, only two of us, but it had cots for 4. So we had plenty of room. Each cot had a mattress (not a thick one), but perfectly fine. We loved the isolated tent sites, allowing for some privacy. We arrived after dark and when we walked to the beach the next morning our jaws...

You are camping in a National Park, just like Acadia, Yellowstone, or for our Canadian friends, Prince Edward Island National Park. It is dark at night. There may be bugs. The showers are cold. It's a little run down in places. But you are on St. John, one of the prettiest Virgins, mostly because 2/3 of it is a National...

What an incredible island! We rented a cabin for our family of four and would definitely recommend it for people who want to be close to nature. It was cool and functional. I do not think there is any other place on the island you where you are on the ocean's edge. It is camping- lite. The staff is lovely....

Camping right next to the beach, with the sound of tree frogs and the surf, geckos on the screens, hermit crabs, migrating butterflies - how can you beat it? The facilities themselves are a little beat up; duct tape on holes in screens, toilets that frequently had stuck chains, but they're easy to overlook. We rented an existing tent, which...

I wanted to go to the Caribbean island, but I wants to avoid the resort experience. Cinnamon bay campground was the answer. I camp a lot, so I can compare this campsite to others. The location, obviously, is hard to beat. Campsites themselves are far from each other, so you feel privacy. I was fortunate do the campsite I originally...

We went here for a trip to get out of the cold and our experience from almost the beginning was poor. The people working the front desk seemed very unpleasant to have to be there. The restaurant and bar there closes relatively early in my opinion, as does the front desk with that l closing at 8pm so make sure...

We came to cinnamon bay to rent stand up paddle boards. The staff was awesome!! They went so far as to send us out for an hour and a half then come back in to get different boards to try out. Gave us easy directions around the bays and were incredibly nice. While we didn't do a lesson, everyone seemed...

“The eco-tents seem superior to the cottages. A stove, propane tank, cooler, water container, and a few pots and dishes are provided.”
