10-Coleman WeatherMaster 6-Person Tent with Screen Room
Spacious, comfortable, and convenient, the Coleman WeatherMaster 6-Person Tent is the ideal addition to your camping needs if you and a large group (or the family) want to reconnect with nature. With easy set-up (it takes less than 20 minutes), this 6-person tent includes clip-suspension, slip-proof-pin systems, and secure poles to ensure a taut, safe space. This tent also includes a special tub floor that has welded corners, covered zippers, and protected seams. Plus, it comes with a rainfly. At about 11 feet x 9 feet of interior room, you can fit up to two queen-size air mattresses. It also comes in a 10-person option, as well.
9-Coleman Sundome 4-Person Tent
Another Coleman special, this (smaller) but just as aptly-designed tent is a great option for smaller groups headed out into the wild. With a dome design that reaches up to 7 feet, you’re gifted with a comfortable interior that allows most people room to fully stand up inside the tent. It takes about 10 minutes to set up fully (less if you convince your group to help) and features large windows as well as a ground vent for extra ventilation and exceptional breathability. The installed WeatherTec system makes this tent a great option for rainy-day camping.
8-CORE 9 person Extended Dome Tent
We’ve got another one on the list for large groups of people who want to camp together. If you’re nervous about splitting up your large group of campers into separate tents, the CORE 9-person tent is a perfect choice. Although it only stands about 72-inches at its tallest, this tent is about 16 feet by 9 feet in length and width, giving you a ton of room to move about and sleep without being too cramped. You can fit about 3 air mattresses inside this tent and it even features a special gear loft on the ceiling for extra organization, as well as lantern hooks and pockets.
7-Wakeman Outdoors 2-Person Tent
This little number is more geared toward smaller groups of people, or individual campers, who are looking to get out and about for a little exploration. Crafted with durable material, this spacious and convenient tent is lightweight, compact, and ideal for both spring and summer camping. This is a great tent for backpackers because it’s so compact and lightweight, but is not advised for cold weather or snowy conditions. The dimensions of this tent are 3.5 feet x 6.25 feet x 4.80 feet, making it an ideal space for you and one other camper.
6-ALPS Mountaineering Lynx 1 Person Tent
This bad boy is for the solo camper who is looking for a well-equipped, but budget-friendly, mountaineering tent. Boasting an incredibly easy setup, the Lynx Tent is a free-standing, two-pole design, making assembly an absolute breeze, a much-lauded feature when you’re out camping alone. It’s a tiny tent, making it lightweight and perfect for backpackers, weighing in at about 4 pounds at max. This tent is perfect for folks who are looking to set up their tent and drift off to sleep but note it’s not a great all-around shelter if you need to be up and about and moving around, as it’s only about 36 inches tall.
5-Wenzel 8-Person Klondike Tent
A clever, spacious, and comfortable tent, this Wenzel 8-person Klondike Tent is a glamour campers dream. With a specially-designed attached screen room, you and the family can camp together with a little extra space. Weighing in at 23 pounds, this moderately-heavy tent measures about 16 feet wide by 6.5 feet high, so most people will be able to fully stand up inside the tent. This spacious tent also features weather-repellent fabric for rainy days and nights, full mesh roof options, and a rain fly.
4-Coleman Evanston Dome Tent with Screen Room
Another Coleman added to the list! This 8-person tent has plenty of space for a group of campers looking to adventure outside. With measurements like 15 feet by 12 feet by 6 feet, you’ll be able to fit a group of people comfortably, as well as two queen air mattresses inside. Additionally, this awesome tent features a screened room for a little extra space for lounging around bug-free. It includes a rainfly and only takes about 15 minutes to set up.
3-Coleman Instant Cabin
It should come as no surprise that we’re ending this list on yet another Coleman tent. What can we say, we’re Coleman crazy! With enough space to fit four people inside, this tent measures in at 8 feet x 7 feet x 4.11 feet. So, even though most folks won’t be able to fully stand up, it’s still a relatively roomy tent. The best part about this tent? It’s in the name – instant! This tent takes less than a minute to set up, making it an ideal choice for folks who hate the 15-20 minute drag of putting together a complicated tent.
2-ALPS Mountaineering Meramac
Many reviewers lament the snug industry standard of two-person tents but say the Meramac is slightly more forgiving in the space department. A couple who camped at Big Pine, Angeles National Forest, Big Bear, and June Lake claims it has enough room for “two adults and a medium dog plus some of our gear, including a dog bed, a large wool blanket, clothes, and shoes.” Meanwhile, a six-foot-eight solo traveler says he “could stretch out with no problem, and there would have been plenty of room for a second person.” He adds, “In my previous tent, I couldn’t roll over without hitting the sides, the ceiling was like a foot from my face when I was laying down, I had to crawl in and out, and it was so poorly ventilated that water from condensation would drip on me all night even in dry weather.” Or as another reviewer puts it, “Both times I have used this in the rain I have slept like a baby straight through the night.”
1-TETON Sports Quick Tent
“Setting the tent itself up was by far the easiest part of the entire process. It took me longer to figure out how to set up my sleep pad and inflate it than it did to pop the tent up, set the camp spikes, and attach the rainfly,” writes one reviewer. “I also did it completely in the dark with a small flashlight, but I am confident I could do this with absolutely zero light, it’s that easy.” The ease of setup doesn’t mean this tent is wobbly, though. “I’ve been using a regular tent for rough camping every night near the road whilst traveling by motorbike in Alaska, Canada, and the lower 48 states. I chose the Teton because after a long day riding it is easy to put up and can also stand on hard ground without the use of tent stakes to make it stay up,” explains one reviewer, who calls this “a highly recommended tent at a good price that saves a lot of time and is ultraconvenient.”
