  • Camping

    I've googled camping in Jamaica until my fingers bled, and I can't seem to find much on the subject other than people saying not to do it. I do realize the problems associated with camping, but I want to do it regardless.

    I've been to JA many times, but I never really paid attention to people camping. I know I've seen a fair amount of tents in the Negril (Roots Bamboo) area.

    So, here's my million dollar question: Any suggestions / stories of camping in the Negril area? How about the Blue Mtn area (I'd like to spend 2 weeks up there)? It would be during Nov - Jan or Dec - Feb. I would split my time at different places if there's a variety of places to check out. I will be with my wife and daughter (almost 2 years old).

    Thank-you in advance!!

      Mokko seems like a great start for me! From what I read he's located in the Blue Mtns. He'll be perfect for guide service on the Blue Mtn range. Thank-you for the link.

      I can't wait to read people's stories of camping and more suggestions. Keep them coming. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

        Re: Camping

        The Rough Guide to Jamaica mentions some camping possibilities around Negril, at Cousin's Cove and Orange Bay.
        You can probably find the info online if you google.

          Libby and Chef may know a little about this as they used to do it on their property in Port Maria.

            The rasta we stay at when we go in Ja, Mokko, get many visitors that camps at his place, not long ago I believe he had a group of 17 ppl, so he didn't have enough cabins to lodge them all, some decided to camp in tents there. so it is do able, definitely, i know staying a cabin is 25/night not sure if he charges 25 when you camp out in a tent instead... i can always verify for you when ever i talk to him again, we usually speak 2-3 times per month. if you do use him, tell him you're a friend of Browning and to give you a good deal [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif[/img] he will also gladly bring you to JAH-B (a bobo rasta friend of his) that lodge for 3 days for the blue mountain hike and the prices are more than affordable.

              Re: Camping

              I can think of a couple of options not mentioned yet. It is possible to camp at Uncle Sams in Little Bay which is just south of Negril about 15 miles but almost an hour by car. I have seen people camp there in the past and I would be happy to call Sam and ask for you.

              Up in the Cockpits in another place owned by TonyK who is a member here. I have that informaiton at home and can post it later this afternoon.

              All that said, I have seen Gong Girls photos and video of Mokko's place and it looks heavenly!

                Re: Camping

                Wow! Now I'm starting to have real options. GongGirl, if you could please ask about the camping rates. I'd be very greatful. Mokko's area looks so nice. I can just imagine what it looks like in person.

                As far as camping in Negril goes, I really want to be somewhat close to the beaches and cliffs. This trip will be my wife's first, and I want her to experience Negril. I can't wait for her to experience all Jamaica has to offer.

                I know I said it once, but I'll say it again--I really do appreciate all the ideas. You all are very helpful and we appreciate it.

                Keep the suggestions and stories rollin'!!

                      Ariiiight, i'll give Mokko a shout for you tonight, he won't believe you guys are talking about him hehe he is very proud when visitors talk about him, ppl in the community, have a lot of respect for Mokko too, helping him in every way, esp when he has tourists or visitors with him.

                      well, i'll let you all know when I find out.

                      R00t that place is SPECTACULAR, would love to go to negril some day, will talk to Mokko about it, hehe, we can't do a trip to Jamaica without him now!

                            Gong Girl...Tonyk once told me he can see the lights of Montego Bay as well as Sour Tree Hill at the same time! I am definitely going up there on my next trip! So many places off the beaten path to see! I would love to meet Mokko too!

                              yep i def want to do this, i loved mokko so i know i would love this, i love the rasta life and all and don't mind anything rustic, poor, rural and local, actually, that's mostly all we are looking for, we don't really care for resorts more than that. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/discosmilie.gif[/img]

                              i'm sure you would LOOOOVE mokko, he is so nice to have around, all the time.
