Camp Gateway, Sandy Hook Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"With the opening of its campground in 2012, Camp Gateway became the closest tent campground to the New York City metropolitan area. Nestled away near the beach at Horseshoe Cove in Sandy Hook, the campground consists of 20 tent-only campsites. Plan your trip and reserve well in advance, because these sites get booked very early in the season.
Each site has a picnic table, a ﬁre ring, a grill, and—most importantly—a shelter under which you can get a little shade and escape the sun, which can be pretty intense along this stretch of the northern New Jersey coast. First developed in 1972, the 27,000-acre Gateway National Recreation Area consists of three geographic units in New York and New Jersey, each of which has both historic and natural value."
