Length of Stay: No day use, you must camp overnight. 14 nights is the maximum number of nights permitted.
Size limits: Up to six people may camp at a single site. Larger families and groups will need to reserve multiple camp sites. Sites are large enough for one large tent or two small tents.
What to bring: Your own tents and sleeping bags. A pad underneath your sleeping bag may cushion you better for a better night's sleep. Bring sunscreen and insect repellant as well.

Recreational Vehicles (RVs) at Floyd Bennett Field only: There are presently 12 RV camp sites. Water, sewer and electrical hookups are NOT available. Tents are not permitted in RV sites. Neither Fort Wadsworth nor Sandy Hook can accommodate RVs.
