I just returned from a week at the Virgin Island Campgrounds with my 18 year old daughter and it exceeded expectations! Randy and Lisa were amazing hosts and made the whole experience even more relaxing and personable. The cabins were clean and comfortable and a breeze from the ocean helped make it bug free. Honeymoon beach was close and was...

This is not a normal campground. The huts have stunning views, the facilities are great and clean and the staff are helpful and fun to talk to. The island is small, so the campground is close to pretty much everything. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Randy and Lisa are amazing hosts. Water island is far from major tourist routs so you can enjoy the nature. Can't wait to go back. Family friendly . Be ready sleep with the breeze from the ocean and sound of the wind.

ECO Style Suite+Camping Friendly. The Ferry only ran up to 6pm. Can't really enjoy the night life over on St. Thomas even if you special request a Ferry for 9pm. because you're on this private island.

My goodness I am glad we spoke. So you were trying to tell people that this is a campground and not a hotel and all the open air places are dusty because they are open to nature...and I thank you for that. Virgin Islands Campground is not for everyone. Also a mention that the last boat is at 9pm so...

I love the communal aspect of this place. The shared kitchen/common area is such a wonderful gathering spot to meet the other vacationers and share experiences. The views are spectacular and Randy and Lisa couldn't be more kind or helpful.

Our 4th visit to Virgin Island campground was sun fantastic. The cottages have a wonderful view and warm yet cooling breeze. We especially enjoy and look forward to meeting /socializing w/fellow campers! Honey Moon beach looked better than its ever been. Relaxation begins from the moment Randy and Lisa greet you at the ferry doc.

My friend and I had a wonderful time at the Campground and on Water Island. Definitely feel like you're away on your own private island, without the crowds or tourists of St. Thomas. Lisa and Randy were wonderful and very helpful with tips and advice. Would highly recommend a stay there!
