Spring is upon us and good times are to be had! And even if camping isn’t really your thing, there are so many reasons people are getting outdoors and experiencing nature in a real, affordable, and environmentally conscious way. Maybe you need a tent for that music festival coming up or you don’t want to fight for a couch at the end of the prom after-party. Maybe you read Wild and you’ve been inspired to hike the PCT, camping along the way. Maybe you actually really hate the idea of sleeping on the ground, outside, with the creepy crawlers and even bears but bae has invited you on his annual family camping trip and you have to go so you’ll need the BEST bug and bear-proof tent on the market. Whatever the reason, we’ve got a tent for you!
Here is a tent for the non-frequent camper. With one window, two doors, and a small screened porch area big enough to keep your shoes dry, it’s your perfect basic tent. And with a setup time of 2 minutes, you can’t go wrong!
This is our most popular tent. It’s well made, it’s a well-known brand, and its got a great price tag.
For the serious camper, this tent is one of the best. It’s very lightweight and great for kicking back after a day spent fishing, hiking, or mountain biking. It also has a huge door so you can get in easily after a few swigs of whiskey by the campfire.
This is the perfect family tent. It comes with a divider to separate the tent into two rooms giving the parents and kids some privacy. It’s spacious, affordable, and great for a family going on their first camping adventure.
Just in case you’re going to the arctic and want to spend $5500 on a tent, there’s the 15 person, 4 season space station tent! Used on base camps as communication centers, dining halls, and medical rooms, the highly durable space station tent can withstand high altitudes and windstorms. Yeah, it’s serious.
This tent is pretty cool! It can wrap around the cargo area of your vehicle, allowing for extra sleeping spaces or storage. No more hassle of unzipping your tent and then zipping it back up and then walking over to your vehicle to get something!
A few things to keep in mind
- When you read the descriptions of these tents, you’ll notice they will indicate how many people they sleep. But they’re lying! A good rule of thumb: minus two people from however many they say. So if a tent says it sleeps 6, only account for 4.
- All tents are extremely flammable! Never light a candle in a tent or set up your tent where sparks from a fire could land on the polyester material.
- Always look for a smooth patch of grass to set your tent up. Try to avoid rocks, tree roots, or caved in land as water could build up underneath your tent!
- And if it does rain, makes sure you let your tent dry before packing it away for a long period of time.
