Room & Suite (12)


Camp Rockaway is a popup campground at the Jacob Riis bathhouse running from Memorial Day weekend – October 15th 2019. 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.

Perfect quiet and comfortable getaway in October, for sure. I was looking for a chance to get away from my usual routine, and this sure fit the bill. Would love to try it during the lively summer season, as well. Great work, Kent & company!
