If you want to have a luxurious camping experience that is only a 10 minute ferry ride from Manhattan then Collective Retreats is offering glamping (glamorous camping) on Governor’s Island from now through October.


There will be two different options for camping:

1. A luxury tent that comes with a private, en-suite bathroom, wood burning stove, electricity and an outdoor deck.  This will cost you $650 per night.

2. A premium bell tent which also features electricity and a real bed…. without a connected bathroom.  This will cost $200 per night.


To book your trip go to Collective Retreats.
