About Camp Rockaway

Camp Rockaway operated a 12 site campground at the Jacob Riis bathhouse from July – Oct. 2018. The camp operated a 6 week pilot at nearby Fort Tilden in 2017. Both Fort Tilden and Jacob Riis Park are located in Rockaway, within the Gateway Recreation Area of New York and New Jersey.  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, fishing, hiking and more are just a a short walk away in historic Fort Tilden.

Recreational beach camping in Rockaway was popularized at the turn of the century.  The first wave of development brought bathing clubs, boardwalks, hotels, tent communities and roller coasters to Rockaway Beach in the early 1900s.

Today, a new wave of creative business owners are rebuilding and revitalizing Rockaway.  Re-imagined for a new century, Camp Rockaway fuses beach camping heritage with modern amenities.
