Our 10' x 12' canvas Wall Tents are designed for those who love being on the sand and in the surf during the day, but want the comforts of home at night. Each safari-style tent is set on a raised wood platform with a deck, canvas lounge chairs, and hammocks. Just steps from the ocean, the property offers a communal fire pit, a picnic area, camp store, hammocks and games.
All you need to bring is your overnight bag. Wall Tents are furnished with a queen size bed featuring a memory foam mattress, side tables, lights, pillows, linens, towels and a cell phone charging station.Located at Jacob Riis Park (Gateway National Recreation Area of New York and New Jersey), the campground is accessible by subway, ferry, bus, bike and car.
Summer and fall are the perfect seasons to visit Riis beach. Quiet sunrise beach walks give way to the bustling "people's beach", with the Riis Park Bazaar's food vendors, beach equipment rentals & regular live entertainment scattered up and down the boardwalk. Biking, birding, nature watching, fishing, hiking and more are just a a short walk away in historic Fort Tilden.

The vibe at Camp Rockaway
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Lets just get it in the open: these tents are in a courtyard of a building (albeit a beautiful one) with no direct views of the ocean. There is minimal privacy, the tents are thin and noise tends to bounce around the courtyard at night (so expect to hear lots of young kids and families). That being said, our stay was incredible; the hosts were amazing and accommodating, the tents/beds are extremely comfortable, the showers were hot, coffee and tea are free in the mornings, and best of all, you're a 30 second walk to the water. The campsite is easy to get to, either via the ferry+uber, or via the subway+a long walk. There's a bar and restaurant in the adjacent building, and did I mention you can seamless food to your tent? The beach quiets down a lot at night and you and your fellow campers are the only people staying nearby, all but guarenteeing you a private beach after sunset. Id definitely visit again.
