* Easy Camp Boston 500
We think this is a great family tent for a family of 4. Ideal for weekend camping, and with the optional extension, could make a great base for a longer camping holiday.
* Coleman Da Gama 5
A good tent for weekend camping (it takes about 20 minutes to pitch our Da Gama 6), or for a camping holiday with the extension.
* Easy Camp Boston 600
The Boston 600 will make a great spacious family tent for a family of 4 or 5 (if the kids don’t mind sharing).
It’s not too big or complicated for short weekend camps, and can be enhanced for longer caps with an additional awning.
* Coleman Da Gama 6
We’ve survived some pretty horrible weather in our Coleman Da Gama 6. It’s been quick to pitch for weekend camping and also good for a camping holiday with the additional extension.
* Robens Klondike
If you want to try a bit of traditional camping, the Klondike brings tradition with modern technology. Polycotton and comes with a flap for a solid fuel stove flue.
* Robens Mescalero
There’s something nostalgic about a Tipi type of tent. They’re simple; basic camping. Robens though have made this out of modern technology….and you can still have stove in it (it has a built in flap for a flue).
* Outwell Hornet L
If you want to shorten your time pitching and have more time camping then this is an ideal tent for a family of 4 (for a family 5 we recommend you look at the Hornet XL).
* Outwell Hornet XL
This is a good sized tent for a family of 5 (or even a family of 4 if the kids want separate rooms). The great thing about this tent is that it is inflatable – so less time pitching and more time camping, exploring, or cooking over the campfire
* Outwell Wolf Lake 5
For a family of 4 wanting to have camping holidays then investing in an Outwell Wolf Lake won’t disappoint. We really like this tent with both its internal and sheltered but outside shelter (you can get an optional door if you do want to seal it up).
Family Tent Reviews
Why show the year? We display the tents ordered by year as many manufacturers release new and updated tents each year. This means that you can sometimes pick up a bargain on model from the previous year, but over time they can become harder to find, and more difficult to find accessories such as carpets and awnings.
