The campgrounds at Cinnamon and Salt Pond have been destroyed in the 2017 Hurricanes Irma and Maria but there is a new camping option on St. John.
Neptune’s Look Out Camping St. John
The campground is on the grounds of Susannaberg, the site of a former sugar plantation from the 1700s. The windmill tower of Estate Susannaberg was erected between 1780 and 1800 and is the second oldest windmill on the island of St. John. While the wooden framing and grinding machinery are long gone, the stone tower remains strong and sound. [Source: Library of Congress]
Estate Susannaberg is “one of St. John’s privately owned historic treasures,” and “is one of the oldest plantation sites on island, and its ruins are among the least documented and understood,” according to St. John Source.
