Camp Siegfried also known as the German Gardens was a 45 acre German American Bund recreational camp located 60 miles east of New York City near the town of Yaphank on Long Island.[1] The camp was surveyed for construction on October 22, 1936.

A legal entity called the German American Settlement League headed by Ernst Mueller owned and operated Camp Siegfried.[2]

On July 4, 1937 Italian Black Shirts led by Josef Santi marched there with members of the Bund.[3]

With the demise of the German American Bund, Camp Siegfried became Siegfried Park.
