Reviewed 30 November 2013

After spending the summer working, we wanted to relax for a week, and we picked the perfect place. Water island was perfect for and island getaway. Away from the busyness of the main islands, a lovely slow paced break. the campground is a great experience in its self. This 'upscale camping' experience, in my opinion is the best way to spend the break. Its communal areas allow you to meet people, and the tree house style cabins are all part of the experience. Well maintained, clean and comfortable, but still close to nature. The hot tub is a great treat, and the views are fantastic. Paul and Deborah are very welcoming, and are very knowledgeable. Use their contacts, and definitely go on the boat trip to see the turtles! A real highlight for us. Honeymoon beach is amazing, and only 5mins away. It was never busy. We normally had it to ourselves. If you want a different type of trip, and the chance to make great memories, this is a great place to stay in paradise.

When our family decided to spend our vacation in the Virgin Islands, I jumped on my trusty TripAdvisor to see where to stay. From the first glimpse, this campground appealed to me.
Paul and Deborah made the transfer from airport to island very clear and easy even though we arrived very late by island standards.
The "tent" was large and clean with a terrace opened to the ocean and a calming trade wind breeze blowing 24/7 to keep things cool.
During our week, Paul continually showed us the famous Water Island hospitality in everything he did for us.
It was lovely to have meals in the pavilion and to get to know the other guests.
Honeymoon beach is just a short walk over the hill and easy to get to. The ferry runs very frequently in case one has a yearning for the city. We spent the week diving with Blue Island Divers.
Paul and Deborah have a fantastic property and I will definitely stay again in addition to recommending this place to all my friends who are coming to St. Thomas.

Stayed: October 2013

We spent a week on Water Island at the Campground for our honeymoon Sept 30-Oct 6. The location is quiet, gorgeous and so relaxing--perfect after all the wedding planning! We stayed in the suite and found the accommodations better than expected for a "campground." The other campers were awesome and everyone we met on the island (at Heidi's, and Joe's or on random golf carts between the campground and beach) was so friendly! Paul & Debbie have an amazing thing going there on Water Island and we HIGHLY recommend it. We'll be back for sure.

Room Tip: The suite has its own microwave, fridge & bathroom for guests looking to do a little less campin...

I planned a last minute trip to Water Island after realizing I'd have a couple of weeks of in between jobs. It couldn't have been better! The campsite was quiet, beautiful and the accommodations were better than I could've imagined. Best last minute glamping trip ever! Thanks Paul and Debbie!

Paul and Debbie were wonderful, friendly and very helpful as they ensured that we were comfortable at the Campground. The location is very nice - quiet, peaceful, and beautiful.
The residents are generally very warm.

Should the opportunity to revisit VI Campground presents itself, I would not think twice. I would seize it right away.

"Camping" made simple and easy - just bring food and bug spray. There are several comments about mosquitos on this site and while it is true, we never had a problem in our cabin and never wore bug spray to bed. Paul has the cabin sealed up tight!

My wife and I agreed that our island experience was enhanced by the connected feeling gained by the natural environment of the Virgin Islands Campground. You should go, just don't book our cabin #3 when we want it :)

No, seriously... paradise! My sister and I went to to the VI Campground and couldn't possibly have had a better experience. Paul and Debbie, your "camp" ground hosts are two of the sweetest folks I've met in all of my travels. Water Island is a peaceful sanctuary about a 10 minute ferry ride from the slightly more hectic St. Thomas, but its easy access back to the larger Islands and more tourist activities. For those who want to connect to Island-Life, meet wonderful people, wake up to the most incredible view of the Caribbean Island, and breath nothing but fresh air... this is officially THE spot! Already looking forward to our next visit!
