Terra Glamping plans to bring its first luxury camping site to Cedar Point County Park in East Hampton by Memorial Day, Newsday reported. The so-called event rental company, which is based in Brooklyn, has run similar seasonal hotels in the Catskills and the Rockaways. Terra Glamping’s East End site will have 30 safari-style tents looking out over Gardiners Bay to Shelter Island and Sag Harbor. Each tent has a queen-size, memory-foam mattress and down bedding along with a six-foot-wide wooden platform at its entrance, as noted by Forbes and other outlets in stories about the “glamping” phenomenon. Amenities include lounge tents holding sofas, books and board games; a dining tent; bathrooms; a grilling area; a fire pit; and hammocks. Stays at Terra Glamping’s Hamptons locale begin on May 24 and are available through the end of October. [Newsday]
