Virgin Islands Environmental Resource Station

Not your normal accommodation option, the Virgin Islands Environmental Resource Station (VIERS) is not a hotel, rather a biology field station with a remote eco-camp.

Active guests should find exactly what they're looking for at VIERS, which offers easy access to a great selection of recreational activities.

Located just outside the heart of the island of St. John, Virgin Islands Environmental Resource Station happily welcomes travelers who are thinking about staying on this beautiful island. If you're curious, the center of Coral Bay is a mile and a half (three kilometers) to the north-northeast.

Activities and Amenities

When you aren't participating in hands on learning about the island chain's eco-system, there are several hiking trails leading from the camp, and you can sign up for guided island tours. Literally at the end of the road and about as deep in the National Park you get on St. John, travelers who prefer discovering nature on their own will enjoy the snorkeling and trails that are close by.

Also offered at the campground:

  • Hiking/Nature Walk

We suggest you contact them if you have your heart set on a particular activity. To read our complete discussion about the types of recreational opportunities available at Virgin Islands Environmental Resource Station, click here.
