Historical Context, Modern Amenities
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.
Camp Rockaway is excited and grateful to be working with some amazing partners to help make your camping experience a memorable one, including:
