A closing camp resort?

Maho Bay Camps, a fixture in the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands since 1976, may be closing its tent flaps for good after this winter season.

TC hears that the eco-resort founded by environmentalist Stanley Selengut has an interested buyer.

Selengut owns the camp resort but not the 13.8 acres on which it sits. He entered into a long-term lease with the owners, which was set to expire last January. The lease was extended twice but is up next June.

Selengut owns the nearby Concordia Eco-Resort and the land, so that’s not up for grabs.

Longtime fans of Maho are sure to be upset. Ironically, the campsite is gearing up for its busiest season ever, with most of the soft-sided tents already booked.
