The Best Camping Tents of 2024

When you’re buying a new camping tent, you’ll want one that keeps water out and withstands high winds.

Take a look at these great camping tents that are simple to set up and comfortable to sleep in.

Here are my favorite best camping tents of 2024. 

The Best Camping Tents of 2024

Option 1: Coleman Dark Room  

The Coleman Dark Room is an umbrella-style pop up tent that sleeps 4 people. Coleman’s Dark Room technology blocks 90% of sunlight so you can stay cool and shaded inside your tent.

Thanks to an attached rainfly, taped seams and a tub-style floor, it’s easy to keep water out as well. The tent’s frame can withstand winds up to 35 mph; when it’s less windy, a ground vent and windows let the breeze in to keep you cool.

This three-season dome tent also comes with three pockets where you can store keys, bug repellent or a phone. 

According to customer reviews, this tent is sturdy and compact, making it easy to fold and pack away. The Coleman Dark Room tent costs $239.99 on Coleman’s website and comes in a multicolored pattern with shades of gray, blue and green.

The Mountain Hardware Mineral King 3 tent has a floor area of 42.5 square feet and sleeps 3 people. This two-door tent comes with a mesh upper canopy to keep the inside well-ventilated.

You can roll back the fly halfway to see the stars at night or stay shaded during the day.

You can store and organize items inside the tent using five large pockets and keep larger gear in the tent’s two full-size, ventilated vestibules. This three-season tent is perfect for camping and backpacking as it only weighs 6 pounds, making it simple to transport and set up. 

According to customer reviews, the tent is lightweight and easy to pack, but airflow is not great when the fly is on and zipped. The Mineral King 3 costs $375 on REI’s website and comes in one color, grey ice. 

The North Face Wawona 6 tent has a floor area of 86 square feet and sleeps 6 people.

This spacious, fully waterproof tent has a big mesh door flap for ventilation and fabric windows that roll up to keep air circulating comfortably. Its large vestibule is the perfect place to stow gear or relax in a second room.

This tent fits a full queen-size inflatable air mattress and with steep walls and a tall peak height, it’s easy to stretch out.

The Wawona 6 also includes a pull clip on the inside top of the tent where you can attach a headlamp, as well as ceiling pockets to store headlamps when they’re not in use. 

According to customer reviews, the tent is comfortable, but doesn’t hold up well in rainy and windy conditions.

Customers suggested setting the tent up with the vestibule facing away from the wind for best results.

The Wawona 6 costs $500 on North Face’s website and comes in shades of orange or gray. 

The Base Camp 6 tent from REI has a floor area of 84 square feet and sleeps 6 people comfortably. This tent has two doors that everyone in the tent can easily access, so there’s no need to climb over another person to get in or out.

Thanks to the Base Camp 6’s durable water repellent, rain and dew doesn’t seep through thet canopy and rainfly fabric.

This three-season tent has pockets and hang loops so you can store gear inside the tent as well as reflective trims and detailing on the outside so your tent is easy to see in the dark. 

According to customer reviews, this sturdy tent withstands rain and wind and is ideal for car camping. 

The Base Camp 6 costs $549 on REI’s website and comes in a yellow desert moss shade. 

The Big Agnes Bunk House 6 has a floor area of 58 square feet and sleeps 6 people. This double-wall tent has two doors, two vestibules, a rainfly and 16 interior pockets.

You can stuff this three-season tent into a backpack carry bag when it’s time to break camp, making it easy to transport.

The front vestibule door is awning-style and can be used as a sunshade while storm flaps on the vestibule zippers protect you from inclement weather. The Bunk House 6 has waterproof coating on the tent body, floor and seams and comes with interior loops to attach gear lofts, accessories and tent lights.

According to customer reviews, this tent is well made and can withstand high winds and heavy rain. This tent is currently discounted to $559.96 on the Big Anges website and comes in an orange color.
