Camping Tents

If you’re looking for a true outdoors camping experience, there is no better way to find it than by sleeping in a camping tent. Staying in an RV or finding a lodge on a campground is great fun too, don’t get me wrong. There’s just something about braving the elements in a tent. Before you set out on your adventure, you’ll need to sift through the multitude of camping tents out there to choose the best one for you.

Camping tents are made to provide protection from wind, rain and other unpleasant weather conditions so it’s important to choose your tent wisely. The first thing you need to choose between is a camping tent with an internal frame and one with an external frame. Camping tents with internal frames tend to be a bit easier to pitch where camping tents with external frames are usually sturdier and therefore more wind-resistant. Decide first what type of camping you’re going to be doing before shopping for camping tents.

If you’re planning on doing any serious camping, when shopping for camping tents, make sure you choose a fully enclosed one with zippered entries and roofs. You do not want rain water seeping into your tent because if the temperature drops, you could be in serious danger. And of course, if the temperature doesn’t drop, you could be in serious danger… of becoming very annoyed at your leaky roof!

One mistake I made when I was a beginning camper was buying camping tents according to the number of people it advertised fitting. In other words, I bought a four-person tent for me and my three friends. When we managed to stuff all our belongings inside the tent to keep it dry, there was barely room for two of us! It’s a good rule to almost double the amount of space you think you need. Your equipment can really add up and the last thing you need is to be cramped inside and sleeping on top of your backpack! But choose the right camping tents and your trip can be unforgettable!
