Our family of four (2 & 4 year old kids) stayed at the Virgin Islands Campground for 9 nights this March. We had a fantastic time and managed to totally unwind on the beautiful and relaxing island. Upon arrival at the Water Island ferry station we were picked up and given a quick tour of the beach and some of the island before being dropped off at our cottage. We arrived a little frazzled from our flight - barely making the last Sunday evening ferry over and without our luggage. We were promptly hooked up with essential toiletries and a couple of cool Coronas which helped us settle in. The hosts are very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
The location is simply fantastic - great views of St Thomas and the water and just a few minutes from beautiful Honeymoon Beach. We found the cottages very comfortable and well appointed with almost every detail taken care of (see other reviews). The only challenge was getting enough food back to the island. We spent most of our time lazying around Water island. There are no grocery stores or even corner shops on the island so getting some cereal, a loaf of bread or some milk requires a ferry trip into St Thomas. It is a fair hike from the Water island ferry terminal back to the Campground so I highly recommend arranging a ride back if you get a lot of groceries. We found that Pueblo's (which is 2 mins from the ferry dock in St Thomas) offered better prices on food than the more conveniently located Gourmet Gallery.
We're already dreaming of our next trip back!
