GOVERNORS ISLAND, New York City (WABC) -- Fun-seekers can now enjoy a luxury camping experience -- without leaving New York City!
Workers on Governors Island turned a decommissioned military base into a campground full of high-end tents.
Visitors can enjoy full beds, bathrooms and even electricity. This piggybacks on a trend called "glamping," or "glamorous camping."
Patrons can get the full camping experience combined with a backdrop you won't find anywhere else, said Peter Mack, founder of Collective Retreats.
"When you wake up in a tent, and you open up the flaps in the morning, you're staring right at the ocean and Statue of Liberty. It's really difference than waking up in a hotel room or in an apartment or in an Airbnb," he said.
Collective Retreats also created a campground for visitors.
One night costs anywhere from $75 to hundreds, depending on when you book.
