Glamping, or glamour camping, has been around for quite some time and it’s a popular camping activity that includes all the added luxury and tons of fun! Imagine driving up to a campsite with your tent already set up for you. And it even comes with a comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, warm blankets, towels, fans and more!
If you’re looking for a family-friendly glamping site near the Adirondacks, then look no further! Camp Rockaway in Schuylerville is located along the beautiful banks of Lake Champlain and it’s the perfect glamping spot for the whole family.
The Glamping Experience
At Camp Rockaway, we offer safari-style canvas tents that come furnished with a queen-sized bed, a memory foam mattress, pillows, extra blankets, linens, side tables with fans, towels and lights so you can pack light!
The 10 x 12 wall tent sits on a raised wood platform with a front deck with lounge chairs, and a shaded back porch with a hammock for you to enjoy.
Families with young children can also rent teepee-style “pup” tents for them to sleep in. (We think they will enjoy playing in the tents during the day!)
On Camp Rockaway campgrounds, you can find clean bathrooms and hot showers, a communal fire pit (smores kits are available), a picnic area, board games, plenty of hammocks and more!
