Camp sites on St. John consist of bare sites, tent covered platforms, and environmentally friendly cottages. Cooking ware and bed sheets are sometimes offered. Restaurants are available at some campgrounds, as well as showers and restrooms. Camping is much less expensive and offers more of a unique experience than other types of accommodations.  Sites usually fill up quick and reservations are almost always required..

    About The Virgin Islands National Park: (website)
    Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, well known throughout the world for its amazing beauty, covers approximately 3/5 of the island, and almost all of Hassel Island located at Charlotte Amalie harbor on St. Thomas. The park offers crystal blue-green waters brimming with coral reefs and sea life, sandy beaches sheltered by seagrape trees, coconut palms. Visitors to the National Park will find tropical forests providing habitat for over 800 species of plants.

    Relics from the Pre-Colombian Amerindian Civilization can also be found including; remains of the Colonial Sugar Plantations, and reminders of  slavery and the subsistence culture that followed during the 100 years after Emancipation. Though 'good and bad' each adds to the rich cultural history of the Park and its island home.
