If you need space for more than two kids, you can also ask for a junior tent; it costs an additional $50 and can accommodate up to four children under 18.
These 16×20 feet safari tents have plenty of room to fit a queen bed, full-size pull-out couch, full bathroom, a TV, and TV stand. There is also a kitchenette that includes a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. AC/heat, Wi-Fi, fire pit, private outdoor shower – that’s what staying in a luxury tent means.

For sleeping arrangements, you’ll find a queen bed in the master bedroom, twin xl bunk beds in the second bedroom, and a pull-out couch in the living area. The bathroom consists of a vanity sink, toilet, and shower. The kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink, gas range, and utensils.

Located on a private site near the woods, the deluxe camper has pretty much everything a cabin suite has. There is a queen/king-size bed, twin bunk beds for kids, a pull-out couch, a fully equipped kitchen, and two bathrooms. With TV, Wi-Fi, AC/heat, coffee machine, gas grill, and a porch, you won’t even feel like you’re living in a vehicle.
The camper rental rates are $250-350 per night from Sunday to Wednesday, $350-400 Thursday through Saturday.
Eastern Long Island Kampground’s basic campers aren’t that different from the deluxe one. They are also located in private sites and include a queen bed, bunks for kids, a full kitchen with microwave and coffee machine, and a porch.
