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...

We returned to snowy Boston on Friday after a week a the Virgin Islands Campground. We hate to share the secret but, the Campground is wonderful. Jonathan met us at the Ferry and Allison gave us a welcome drink as we arrived. We had a great time! The campground is very well maintained and clean. The shared kitchen was a...

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!! I've never stayed at the campground... I must...

Staying at the campground was a wonderful experience! It was such a beautiful island and the cabins were very clean and comfortable, and we had an amazing view of the ocean. We will be returning soon!

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. The cottages, kitchen, and bathroom facilities were well maintained and were very clean. Close walking distance to the ferry, Honeymoon Beach, and Limestone Beach. My husband and I loved the community feel of the place...

Just returned from 4 days at Deborah and Paul's V.I. Campground and we wish we could have stayed forever. Their location is by far the best on Water Island. You are a stone's throw from the trails to Limestone Beach and Honeymoon Beach and equally close to the Ferry Dock. This was our first experience with an eco conscious vacation,...

In January 2014 my husband, Peter, and I returned to the V.I. Campground -- our fourth visit in as many years. As it has from the beginning, it felt like coming home.

This is what we call the vacation. To quote Jesse Ventura: "I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and I go to bed in the evening with half of it done".
