Family Camping Tents

Many people might think choosing a family camping tent is a difficult process. I am telling you that it doesn't have to be a difficult process. I recommend going to the camping supply store armed with what you are looking for to simplify the process. There are several steps to take to help narrow it down before you start looking.

First, decide weather you will be backpacking, weekend camping, or camping long term. These are different types of camping that require different camping tents. You will need a much lighter tent if you are looking for a backpacking tent than if you needed a family camping tent for the weekend. If you are considering long term camping you might consider a cabin tent for your camping tent.

Next, consider how many people you plan to camp with. Family camping tents come in many sizes so get an idea how many people you plan to sleep in the tent to determine the size. I recommend a little larger than the number of people you plan to sleep to allow for an extra sleeper or camping gear if you aren't a backpacker.

If you are on a budget and looking for discount camping tents Coleman tents and Eureka tents would be a great option to meet your needs. Both Eureka tents and Coleman tents offer all the styles and sizes you will need for a family camping tent. They offer large family camping tents such as the Eureka Pine Lodge, Eureka Copper Canyon, and the Coleman Sundome. If you are looking for a little lighter weight, and more flexible family camping tent you might consider the Eureka Timberline.

Knowing what style and what size will make your shopping experience much more pleasant when you go to select you backpacking tent or your family camping tent. Don't let all the brands and styles confuse you, just be prepared with the knowledge of what you are looking for.
