Camp Rockaway is a popup campground at the Jacob Riis bathhouse running from Memorial Day weekend through October. Summer and fall are the perfect seasons to visit Rockaway beach. Quiet sunrise beach walks give way to the bustling "people's beach", with the Riis Park Beach Bazaar's food vendors, beach equipment rentals & regular live entertainment scattered up and down the boardwalk. Biking, birding, nature watching, whale watching tours, fishing, hiking and more are just a a short walk away in historic Fort Tilden and Riis Landing. Accommodations at Camp Rockaway include furnished safari tents. Just steps from the ocean, the property offers a communal fire pit, a picnic area, camp store, hammocks and games. Just steps from the beach, each tent features lounge chairs and hammocks, a solar powered light, fans, and a USB charger. Easily accessible by subway, bus, NYC Ferry, car, and by bicycle, Camp Rockaway is close to home, but feels a million miles away.

Staying at Camp Rockaway was magical. The owners and caretakers were so friendly and helpful and without their recommendations we wouldn't have discovered how incredible the Rockaways are. The location is perfect - steps from the beach and a short bike ride or walk to Fort Tilden. The accommodations are so clean and lovely details and decor make it truly special. The perfect end to the night was roasting stores. Can't wait to go back!

Property's Favorite Review
My wife and I stayed for a weeknight stay this past week as an end of summer getaway. Camp Rockaway was just what we needed. The camp was peaceful and quiet with fantastic access to the beach. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The campfire and morning coffee were definitely a highlight. I would recommend you bring your own snacks and drinks as the local vendors are inaccessible from 6 pm to 9:30 am. But this just adds to feeling of getting away from it all.

We spent a night here over Memorial Day weekend. The owners were very nice. We cooked burgers on the community grill. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were nice and hot. There is a playground for children a two minute walk away.

My stay at Camp Rockaway was INCREDIBLE. We rented out the whole campground for a friends and family beach weekend and I am so glad we did. The tents are amazing and so comfortable. The staff is incredibly helpful and friends! Watching the moon rise and hearing the ocean all night is magical! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
