Spacious, user-friendly, and feature-rich, tents for camping are made for a relatively luxurious experience in the outdoors.
Many of these behemoths offer enough room to set up cots or even chairs and a table for card games on a rainy day.
First off, you get a full coverage rainfly and vestibule for rainy and windy conditions.
A quality build from a company that knows a thing or two about camping, the REI Kingdom is our top camping tent of 2017 with a ton of livable space at an excellent price.
The hubbed pole design creates near vertical walls, so the peak height of 75 inches is enjoyed throughout most of the tent (traditional dome-style tents are only roomy in the very middle).
In addition, a number of people don’t love the “pumpkin” colorway that pervades just about everything to do with the tent, and unfortunately it’s the only option. What we don’t: Questionable build quality and limited rain fly.
But we love the build quality, which far exceeds most of the competition. Realistically, a healthy number of people only go camping once or twice a summer in good conditions, and don’t need all the bells and whistles of the tents above.
Accordingly, those that might see sustained rainstorms like in the Pacific Northwest may want to opt for more protection. This tent is a true hybrid: the Bungalow builds off the success of Nemo’s Losi backpacking line, but adds significant interior space for the family version that is more akin to a camping tent.
