You can make reservations now for overnight stays in safari-style canvas tents tucked just behind the dunes at Fort Tilden.
Each tent is on a raised wood platform with a deck and two canvas lounge chairs in a family-friendly site that includes fire pits, a picnic-and-grill area, hammocks, a supply store, a phone-charging station, bathroom and shower facilities, and games such as cornhole.
Each tent is furnished with a Queen-size bed featuring a memory foam mattress, side tables, solar lights, pillows, linens, extra blankets, towels, and extra cleaning supplies.
Prices range from $149 to $189 on weekdays and Sundays and $189 to $289 on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays with a maximum of two people per tent. Families and pods can add on a pre-pitched pup tent for kids or friends. Simply bring an overnight bag.
“It’s going to be a great summer,” said Kent Johnson, an architect who founded Camp Rockaway. “We provide the basics, plus a few amenities that make the experience more comfortable, like hot outdoor showers.”
