Camping Tent Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Never used a tent in recent memory but going camping in May and looking to buying one. Just a regular tent, not a fancy TJ overland type tent. I’d like one preferably 6-8 ppl for my family of 4, and just as important, one that it fairly quick and simple to pitch as I would probably be doing it solo with minimal help. I’m not familiar with tent pricing but I don’t want to spend a boat load if I can help it. It’ll be a first tent and I’d like to see if I like camping enough to do it often. Any suggestions?

I'd start looking for sales at Walmart,  fleet farm etc.  Not only the tent but air mattresses and everything else you'll need. REI is spendy but they have some nice equipment.  We camped out of big tent for years duck hunting, rain fly, porch and it took 4 guys around 30 minutes to set up. If you do go cheap get some descent stakes, Cuz they usually come with skinny metal ones.. Gotta remember the bigger the longer it takes to air out.. Good luck!

My rule of thumb is take the number of people and time it by at least 2 for the size tent you want.

Coleman instant tents are well made and really do deploy quickly. I would start looking here, given your criteria. Keep in mind that the tent version for 6 people is realistic and can comfortably accommodate 4 people.
