Two federal lands in New York could soon be home to glamping and tiny cabins for overnight stays as the National Park Service (NPS) seeks to increase accommodation options, according to a report.
The demands for more luxurious outdoor recreation came as the department tries to increase the utilization and profit of Floyd Bennett Field in southern Brooklyn and Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island.
Both sites have basic camping facilities. However, a new operator could upgrade and add amenities this summer, according to the NPS.
“Applicants proposing the introduction of additional camping amenities, including but not limited to glamping and tiny house camping at the below-identified locations will be required to submit to an additional level of compliance review to ensure the proposed activity does not present any unacceptable impacts to natural and cultural resources,” a request for proposals from the parks service reads.
Floyd Bennett currently hosts 44 campsites, with 12 spaces for RVs. There are seven campsites at Fort Wadsworth.
