As you prepare yourself for a stay at Virgin Islands Campground, you might be wondering just what you're going to need to bring to be comfortable.
You will be staying in a weatherproof, comfortable wood frame tent-cottage, fully appointed with electrical outlets, comfortable beds and linens, mosquito nets, first aid kits, a table and chairs inside, lounge chairs and a cooler on your private, ocean-view terrace outside, towels for showering and washing up, beach towels, a bin for your groceries, and all the cooking utensils, cutlery and dishware you need to prepare a home-cooked meal up at the Pavilion.
So, you won't be needing to lug along the usual hardware associated with camping, such as tents and stakes, air mattresses and pumps, or cooking utensils and ice chests. The Pavilion is fully loaded up with a refrigerator, grill and stove, a big table and a sink for washing up, so you won't need to worry about those things either.
However, this is still, technically, camping. The cottages are airy and you will be outside a lot, so bring some bug spray for sure. A flashlight will be a must, in case you need to take a late night walk up to the bathrooms, or end up coming back from the beach or restaurant after dark. For the daytime, sunscreen is a must.
For toiletries, we supply you with showers and a bathroom area that is modern and comfortable. You should bring your own shampoo and bar soap.
We supply sheets, blankets, bath towels, as well as a beach towel for each person in the cottage. Depending on the time of the year, you might consider bringing an extra light blanket to add to your bed if you tend get chilly at night. Also a sweater or light jacket for evenings.
There are no ATMs on Water Island and most vendors (ferry, beach bar, and Heidi's Honeymoon Grill) only accept cash. There are several ATMs a short walking distance from the ferry on the St. Thomas side, but it would be a good idea to bring some cash with you so you won't have to worry about it.
Other than that, there are no special requirements for a comfortable and easy stay at Virgin Islands Campground. Can't wait to see you!
