Can anyone give me advise on a new tent? We camp about 7-10 times a year and would like a 6+ person tent.?
Good zips essential as they are always the first to go, our previous tents have been dome ones, and we like these as they are easy to assemble. However a bit more head room would be good.
Check out: www.cabelas.com or www.backcountry.com Both websites have the large tents you are talking about, both sites sell quality stuff.
What brand of camping tent overall is the best in terms of durability, quality and keeping out rain?
(Regardless of price, looking for a 6 to 7 person tent, and definitely want a rain proof tent)
Springbars are by the best that I have ever owned. They are very durable and have never leaked or torn. They have all different sizes and shapes. Just a very good tent.
Which family tent should I buy?
I am trying to get my partner into camping, I loved camping as a child and am sure our two young children will too. So far my options are Easy Camp Boston 400 Tent, Vango Icarus 500, Regatta 6 person frame tent, Dynamix 6 person tunnel tent, Mobi Garden Licata 6 person tent or Dover 4-person tent. Can anyone tell me whish is best or any other similar tents?
Don’t see any Coleman tents on the list. Best value going. Good quality, stay-dry guarantee, and good price. I’ve got three and I’m pleased with all of them.
Vango are a good company too. The most-used tents on Everest are the Vango Force Ten series. My little Vango mountain tent is a budget model but has been brilliant. I’ve got a Force Ten too, for long-stay camps but it won’t be big enough for you. Pricey too….top level gear.
Their family camping tents are fine….good quality, even the cheaper ones.
Our children grew up with camping from before they could walk. Loved every day of it.
Two of us for Coleman….links on mine for Coleman and Vango, and a few other things and Coleman link on Chris as well.

Oven at camp? Sure….Dutch ovens are brilliant for camping if you’re not trekking. Heavy for that, but good in a static camp.
Biscuit tins convert to ovens too. Cheap and light. Holds a couple of disposable BBQs on the journey too. Cook anything at camp you can at home…bread, cakes, casseroles, stir fries, baked trout, the lot.
No escape from it is there, haha? Have a great time.
Is it legal to sleep in a park with a tent, even if it does not offer that service?
I want to sleep in my 6 person tent with 3 others at Como Park in St. Paul, I wanted to know if it was legal to sleep there if they don’t have available camping grounds for anyone, basically, I want to sleep in a sheltered little area, close to a trail, and away from people… any answers you have will be helpful .
It depends entirely on the park in question. The best course of action is to contact your Parks and Recreations Department of your city for the policy concerning this.
