Ozark Trail Tents

12 posts in this topic

Anyone familiar with this brand of tent?

I'm just looking for a 2-3 or 3-4 person tent

but don't want to spend alot. This is a

brand they carry at Walmart.

I know a few folks that have them. They seem pretty nice. Set up and take down pretty quick. No complaints of leaking that I know of. I would not hesitate to buy one.

Not sure about them. Walmart's home brand I think.

If you get one, seal the seams really good.

How often do you plan on using it? Sun is something that can also do a number on tent fabric. Cheaper tents don't resist the uv damage as well.

If you don't like it, Walmart will take it back.

Thanks for your opinions. I think I'll go buy it.

Probably only one more trip this year anyway.

(18th annual chili feed outside Ellsworth)

Not like I'm going to be using it for

winter camping.

Let us know what you think of it once you use it.

It might already have the seams sealed. A lot of them do that now.

And if I don't know if they're sealed? Should I just in case?

And if so, how? Looks like there may be rain this weekend.

I would definitely buy a can of seam seal and spray all seams

The seam sealer I've used works like a big marker. You just apply it to the seams.

The sprays are not a seam sealer. They add waterproofing to the fabric. You shouldn't need to do this with a new tent, but one that is older may benefit by it.

And I could get seam sealer somewhere like Gander? or REI? or??? Is it specifically for tents?

I have an Ozark Trail tent and love it. I've used it for a number of years, in rain, and never had any problems. It sets up super easy and has lots of unique little features. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Well there you go! I say go buy it and enjoy this great weather!

Oh ya, Walmart should have seam sealer in the camping dept. Otherwise, Gander, Fleet Farm, REI - they all carry it.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
