Cinnamon Bay Campgrounds 12/31/02
Reviewers Rating: Good
We stayed in a platform tent which is a wooden floored tent maybe 2 feet off the ground. It was amply big, and has maybe 4 cots. You are given clean linens on arrival and you make your own bed. The sides of the tent are a dark, brownish canvas and there are flaps that can be rolled up for windows. You have some level of privacy provided by trees which surrounded us on 3 sides, and you are given use of a propane lantern and stove if you stay in the floored tents as opposed to the primitave sites. This is not a place to stay for people who aren't used to "roughing it". There was a wasps nest just outside of our tent which we reported but was never remedied. It cost us $80/night to stay in this tent, and the bathrooms were communal and not that great. IT does however provide a cheaper alternative to very expensive hotels, but there isn't alot of privacy, there are lots of people walking around and it is very noisy in the common areas. Snorkels can be rented on the beach there but only during a certain timeframe (which was never when we needed them so i was glad i brought my snorkel equipment though my fiance had to hold his breath when we went to trunk bay). The sand there is brown flecked, but not dirty.. (cinnamon bay may have gotten it's name because of it's sand).. There seemed to be alot of people snorkeling out around there, but it must have been harder to see underwater there than at some of the white sand beaches because of the lack of reflected light. You can see some mongeese and wild asses/donkeys at the campgrounds. And the "store" there is VERY expensive, don't forget to bring your own food essentials, we paid ~$1 for canned sodas and about the same for bagged chips.
