My daughter and I spent 5 days here over Thanksgiving. The location is ideal - midway on the island, with a nice workout walk (lots of hills!) to both Sprat Bay to the north and the fort to the south, with a quick hike to the beautiful beach. Snorkeled with the local sea turtles every swim but one, at Honeymoon... More

We came across this campground looking for a place near the airport. Were we surprised! Cabin was spacious and the ocean views and breezes are so soothing! The kitchen and bathroom facilities are clean and organized. Honeymoon Beach and the Dinghy bar are excellent and a short walk away. I would definitely stay here again, so convenient for island hopping.... More

I'm so glad you did find us...close to the airport, yes, but we do have water between us. The ferry ride is only 10 minutes, so you're on the beach 1 hr or less after you land!! I personally love that after I have to get up at 3am to make it to the airport. Thanks so much for your... More

Water Island is only a short Ferry trip away of St.Thomas. You feel like you are on the other side of the world. It is quite,relaxed, romantic. The beach is not far away (a 10 minute walk).Honeymoon Bay is grandiose, the two beach bars have great food and drinks, the local people are friendly and the campground is the best... More

I booked this trip a few months ago, not knowing anything about the Virgin Islands. This trip was for our honeymoon and we stayed in the Suite.

This trip was our third time staying at the campgrounds and it was just as fantastic as it was the first two times. We came to stay with our two teenaged children and all four of us fit comfortably in the cabin. Randy and Lisa were very friendly, professional and accommodating. During our 10 day stay, there were other guests... More

My wife and I visited the VI campground a couple of weeks ago. The new managers, Randy and Lisa were the best. Randy met us at the ferry dock and gave us a short tour of the main attractions and how to walk to them. We were greeted by Lisa with Rum punch in hand. We enjoyed our punch as... More

We recently stayed at VI Campground for one week in cabin #5 and it was special for sure. Our original plan was to book Concordia on Saint John, and booking VI Campground was undoubtedly the right choice for us.

Very nice clean campground. Cottages are nice and comfortable. Did not like the hike uphill to the bathroom. Also bath house next to kitchen. We did not get a choice of a cottage but others said if you call them directly you can reserve. Would have like clean towels at least once but it is a charge. Three other couples... More

Again, reviews in my opinion are to help guests make a decision about joining us. Yes, we are on a hill. And yes, we are an Eco-sensitive campground. We offer linen changes but discourage them via the costs. Most people find that Eco-sensitive is "not so bad" and most people actually feel good about leaving a smaller footprint on our... More

I visited in July with my family and a couple friends. The beaches and scenery are beautiful and the views from the cabins are breathtaking.
