If you love to camp but don’t have the equipment or the will to haul everything you need to your favorite campsite, the solution awaits at area New York State Parks this summer.
ConTENTment Camping is a new partnership with state parks which offers furnished tent rentals Full size safari style tents furnished with two real beds, tables, chairs, coolers linens and blankets are included with the rental fee and everything from lanterns to coffee makers are available at an additional cost.
To complete the ultimate camping adventure, kayak and bicycle rentals are available too. Because parks are less than 30 miles apart, bikers can plan multi night stays without having to worry about bringing their own equipment. Maps for self guided tours are available at the company’s website.
The furnished tents open up all kinds of possibilities. From children’s birthday parties where families can enjoy the outdoors without all the work, to family reunions, biking tours and more. Being able to sit around the campfire, enjoy the outdoors and spend the night in a real bed are a one-of-a-kind experience. Single sites, which cost $60 per night, ($50 per night for 7 nights or more) can sleep up to six people. Group sites, at $90 per night, ($65 per night for 7+ nights) feature two furnished tents.
