Bryan and Jill Updyke love the outdoors, kayaking, and indigenous history and art. That's why we built these TENT CABINS. People can be closer to nature, get outdoors, and learn about the people who first inhabited this island. We also noticed that people with a small budget needed affordable lodging. During the 25 years we've lived on island, we've discovered some of the most amazing places. In fact, after many years of searching, Bryan discovered the location of the fabled 'Maroon Cave', and was one of the original trailblazers of the Sweet Bottom trail to the Tidal Pools. We spend our free time in the woods, or in a kayak. We would like to show you the island, the local way! Stay in one of four tent cabins, while enjoying the very happening North Shore of St Croix.
The neighborhood is the perfect mix of Island Life.
Jill Updyke purchased this cabin in 2010
Your TENT CABIN is down the trail from Virgin Kayak Tours, under the tropical canopy, 2 minutes from the beach on foot. St Croix, and especially Cane Bay, offers a very laid back atmosphere to enjoy. You feel away from it all, but you are just a two minute walk to the beach, world class diving and snorkeling, restaurants and a lively neighborhood of locals. While still growing in popularity, Cane Bay and the surrounding neighborhood are a sure bet for anyone who wants to experience the caribbean the local way. It is very quiet and mellow on the weekdays, and very lively on Saturday and Sunday!
Snorkel and dive one of the best spots in the Caribbean; build your own fire to cook on at your private campsite; you can hike a private nature trail on the 101 acres of Cane Bay Plantation; swing in your hammock at your campsite; catch your very own lobster and grill it on your grill; hike to secluded beaches nearby. Kayak to remote coves that most Crucians haven't seen. Yoga classes are held at EAT two times a week. Party with the locals at one of the five nearby restaurants.
If you are the type of person/people that love nature, camping, and moving away from crowded cities, then you are looking for the suitable place. For us as a family with an 11 year old daughter, who loves to explore wild places, Cane Bay Campground was totally unexpectedly luxurious! The cabin, camp site, and bathroom facilities were perfectly organized and cozy. Thanks to the owners Jill and Bryan Updyke, the best, warmest, and friendliest hosts who made us feel at home.
P.S. You do not need to bring an alarm clock with you, there is a rooster that will bring joy with his cry's in the morning! =]
The long Minnesota winter meant we were desperate for sun, sea and sand and we couldn't have picked a better place for a mid-winter get-away! The tent cabins are secluded, hidden among the trees and under a canopy of tropical branches...minutes walk from the sea. Everything we needed for camping was supplied, from cooking ware, dishes and stove to camp chairs and bath towels! It only takes a few minutes to walk to the beach for relaxing or snorkeling, and more relaxing and snorkeling! Jill and Bryan are great hosts, full of information and island tips, and I highly recommend their night time bio-bay kayak tour.
We will definitely be returning to this piece of island paradise during a future Minnesotan winter!
We hit the vacation jackpot by finding this unique gem on St. Croix. Unlike so many places, the Virgin Kayak campground run by the awesome Jill and Bryan Updyke is exactly as advertised and pictured on their website. It’s super clean and close to the beautiful beach with all the amenities listed and then some. It’s rustic and quaint and very comfortable. If you don’t like nature and need a lot of luxuries, this isn’t the place for you, but if you want an affordable and convenient get away, this is just the place. The bathhouse is a bit of a walk but you should find everything you need right on site. The hosts are super accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel at home, both at the campground and on the island. Cane Bay has a lot to offer. EAT @ Cane Bay is delicious (a little pricey) and is right on site but there are several other places close by to eat – we really enjoyed Rowdy Joes. You will need a car, and you will want to book a kayak tour in advance. We will be back soon!
...In ways you can't even imagine. Jill and Bryan's tent cabins are the best way to experience St. Croix. They are the loveliest of hosts with the loveliest of nature-immersed (and CLEAN!) accommodations, in the best-located spot on the most beautiful island in the world. Just go!
My husband and I adore the cabins at Cane Bay Campground...most defintely our favorite "staycation" place on island! We just had another fantastic full moon extra-long weekend in Cane Bay at "our" cabin (#3) and again it was just perfect. The property is even better than the photos show - everything is kept spotlessly clean and fresh, and everything you need is provided (and anything you forgot readily available at the on-site Camp Store!). We love just relaxing in the hammocks, setting a night-time fire in the fire-pit at each cabin, and enjoying the beauty and serenity of the setting. We park our cars and forget it...if you don't want to cook for yourself, there are a number of excellent bars and restaurants within a 2 minute walk down to the beach, eat@cane bay being our personal favorite for the lively atmosphere, great food and live music. You can take one of Jill and Brian's Virgin Kayak tours (we recommend the night-time Bio-Bay tour), enjoy diving, horseback riding or simply sunbathing and snorkeling on the beautiful beach...no need to leave the area as all is right there for you to enjoy.
I highly recommend Cane Bay Campground to anyone who enjoys nature, a beautiful setting, and plenty to do on-site or within minutes walk. And you can't really call it camping in the traditional sense...with the spacious, beautifully crafted and well-equipped cabins and grounds, and so much to see and do at your fingertips, it's the perfect place for an extended holiday or if you are an islander like us, the perfect spot for a wonderful "staycation " that won't break the bank! We can't recommend it enough.
We came looking for a relaxing hideaway, and we found that and so much more. Our island friends were also blown away, saying things like, "I've lived on St. Croix my whole life and I had no idea such a lovely place existed", and "I'm planning to take my family here soon for an on-island holiday".
During the week we stayed we had a couple of days of on-again, off-again rain, which was lovely to experience lying in bed listening to it on the canvas, or sitting outside at the picnic table underneath the tarp on the giant tree next to the cabin. We even got a fresh egg delivered one morning by the neighbors chickens... definitely the freshest egg I've ever had. Totally restful place just 3 minutes walk to a great beach... what omre can you ask for?
We went out on the kayaks one night to see the phosphorescence - what a fun and magical trip, especially for my wife who was a complete newbie to kayaking.
We'd come back in a heartbeat! And our hosts were delightful, full of stories of island history.
