Getting Started In Tents

For people who like to camp and hike, picking the right tent is essential.  Depending on the activity can call for various tent designs. 

There are three basic types of “family/base” camping tents.

  • Cabin-Style
  • Dome-Style
  • Screen Rooms and Sun Shelters

The Cabin-Style tents are typically the most popular and easiest to set up.

Dome-Style tents are more durable and wind resistant for the more advanced camper.

The Screen Room or Sun Shelter are more typically used to cover food areas or used for shading.

There are different quality and price options depending on what you plan to use it for.  Great websites like REI or Mountain Hardware are good to check out after you know what you are looking for.
