Camping Tent Reviews

I have read lots of camping tent reviews and have spent the greater part of my life going through countless different makes and models in the search for the best camping tent. In the end, there are a few that come out on top, but it’s up to you to decide what you need out of your camping tent. Check out my own camping tent reviews below and then decide which might be right for your needs. I’ve given a review of the best I’ve encountered out of different categories of tents, so go ahead and jump through the camping tent reviews to the one you are looking for.

If you’re planning on doing some leisurely camping with a group, the best family dome tent I’ve come across is the Columbia Bugaboo II 12-Foot-by-9-Foot 4-Pole 5-Person Dome Tent. This bad boy is sturdy enough to keep five people safe and dry inside during a storm but well ventilated as well. The color-coded poles make it a breeze to set up. At the time I wrote these camping tent reviews, this tent is going for $149.88, which in my opinion is much more than worth it.

If you're planning a group camping trip, which I highly recommend, it will be infinitely more comfortable with a multi-room tent and the two room cabin tent I’ve recently fallen in love with is Eureka! Copper Canyon 1312 Eight-Person 13-Foot by 12-Foot Family Tent. It has that killer combination of great ventilation but full rain and weather protection. It’s easy to pitch and pack up and has lots of extra space for your equipment. You’ll generally find this tent for just under $300, but I feel it’s a very worthy investment as large family and group camping trips are just the stuff of life.

For the backpacker’s camping experience, you’re going to need a lightweight backpacking tent that won’t weigh you down as you’re out trekking. My favorite tent in this category by far is the Sierra Designs Vapor Light 2 Two-Person Ultralight Tent. It’s an ultra lightweight camping tent with lots of space that actually manages to keep you completely dry even in extreme conditions which is rare for the backpacking tents out there. It’s easy to set up and is only about three pounds, which is the main reason this tent is so expensive. It runs for about $329 but if you can afford it, you’ll thank yourself later when you’re light on your feet while backpacking.

The last of my camping tent reviews goes out to those backpackers who are on a tighter budget and are need of a lightweight camping tent. The Eureka Timberline 2 Adventure 7-Foot by 5-Foot Two-Person Tentis a two-person backpacking tent that’s extremely sturdy but easy to set up. It has some nice storage inside and a vestibule for extra space. It weighs about six pounds which is manageable and a great deal for the price, which is generally about $110. Small price to pay for a fantastic camping experience!
