We visited the Virgin Island Campground on during the February vacation week with my family. The facilities are outstanding.The people friendly. And the beach beautiful! We arrived on a Saturday earlier than expected because of a storm. We had no problem getting the ferry from St. Thomas and when we arrived at Water Island, Jonathan was there to greet us...

Your review made me immediately come to respond.... I only wish I could "paint the picture" that I also see. The description of your experience arriving at the campground is exactly the experience we want people to have...thank you for bringing that to life. Sincerely, Deborah

We just stayed here as a family, mom, dad, and two kids in one of the cabins. It was an extraordinarily relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We swam, snorkeled, played, ran, explored for seven days. The staff: Jonathan and Allison made us welcome always checked in to see what we needed. They also offered very helpful local knowledge and assistance with...

So… for our ELEVENTH trip to Virgin Islands Campground (if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!), we were met at the ferry dock by Jonathan who took us to the "campground". Allison met us with a smile and excitement. As always, there were great people staying there, and we enjoyed talking with other guests over dinner...

Mitch and Dave, You guys are one of the best things about the Virgin Islands Campground experience for me. Allowing me and our family to also have the experience so many others have during their stay. A close bond.. That is special and thank you. Love you both. Deb

We found the other guests at the campground very friendly and helpful! We enjoyed meeting fellow guests in the common area and discussing what we all were doing for the day, what we did yesterday, asking their opinion about things, cooking together and celebrating at night, it was all amazing. This would never happen in a hotel, condo or house...

We brought our 19 month daughter to stay at the campground for 11 days, hoping for a warm, relaxing vacation. It was perfect! The cabins had just enough creature comforts - a fan, plenty of space, lots of clotheslines - and the cooking pavilion was great for us to cook our own meals and chat with the other guests. Water...

We enjoyed our stay at VI Campground. We hope to return & would recommend VI campground on Water Island. It is a peaceful atmosphere yet there is opportunity to socialize with others camping. It is a small facility using Eco friendly systems for toileting & showering. To capture the entire island rent a golf cart. There is a steep hill...

You know, the pavilion was kind of an afterthought and it is often a highlight of our guests. Sharing food and cooking , sharing places to go and things to see on our tiny island and sharing adventures to the larger island creates a bond that even I have not experienced. Nope!!

This place is a truly unique experience and adventure. Paul and Debbie run a seamless operation, the tents/cabins and facilities are very clean and accommodating. Can't wait to go back!!! Be prepared to walk some hills, however that should be expected.

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.
