The Statue of Liberty in front of New York

The New York Glamping Experience You Can Enjoy With Skyline Views

By Kristin Conard


While you can find some great campsites near New York City, you probably don't associate the city with camping. However, Collective Retreats offers glamping on Governors Island.
Thanks to its location in the New York Harbor, the 173-acre island enjoys pretty much unsurpassed views of the Lower Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
Collective Governors Island has everything you need with a range of accommodation options starting at around $200. It opens from late April through early November each year.
Guests get continental breakfast delivered to their tent and access to happy hours featuring drinks and snacks on the Sunset Terrace.
The dining tent serves fresh, seasonal dishes and a range of curated wines, beers, and cocktails. They also have bonfires and a free s'mores pantry for guests to enjoy each night.
Collective Governors Island also runs a seasonal Hearth & Harvest Dinner Series, or you can play games like croquet and oversized Jenga, enjoy the spa, or rent a bike to explore.
