    Your friend is 99% right, the only difference being that it's not the forest service but the National Park Service that administers Virgin Islands National Park. You can camp in utter tropical tranquility at either Cinnamon Bay Campground (www.cinnamonbay.com), on park property, or at privately operated Maho Bay (www.maho.org), a more luxe eco resort. You can find both locations on the map here: http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/vi/hik_vi.htm

    Your final calculation might depend a little on how long you're staying and how much island-hopping you're planning on doing. Most of the public ferries for places including Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook on St. Thomas, Virgin Gorda, and Tortola depart from Cruz Bay. Round-trip fares range from $15-$20 for the short hop to St. Thomas to up to $70 if you want to sail over to BVI's Virgin Gorda for the day. The other factor you should consider is convenience, as the Westin ferry will pick you up directly from the resort instead of having to arrange transportation over to Cruz Bay (not far, mind you). There's some useful information about ferry schedules and prices at this link: http://www.vinow.com/general_usvi/interisland_ferry/. I didn't really answer your question directly but hopefully above info will help you make the right decision!
