Looking for the most comfortable camping tent? One that will keep your friends and family dry in a storm, and will give you the ventilation you need to stay cool on a hot summer day when the insects start to get hungry? We took eight of the top models on the market and put them head-to-head in a variety of tests in best lab and in campgrounds around the West. We tested their comfort, storm-proofness, ease of setup, packed size, and workmanship to determine the overall best, the best value, and strongest.
The tent is the focal point of most camping trips. If you’re a beginning camper, there are a couple of different camping tent tips to remember. First and foremost, practice pitching your camping tent before you head to the campsite. Being able to do it quickly and effectively is extremely valuable. When looking for a place to set up, always look for a “natural bed” of soft, flat soil but avoid the bottom of hills or valleys. Finally, always set up a tarp below your tent to avoid potential damage or water logging.
Modern camping tents derive their inspiration from the portable shelters and homes that humans have been using since time immemorial. The earliest known remains of a camping tent were discovered in Russia that were carbon dated to 40,000 B.C. Traditionally, camping tents have been used by nomadic people around the world, a practice that persists to this day.
