Ozark Trail Base Camp 14-Person Cabin Tent Review 20 x 20 Feet

The first thing to cover when talking about Ozark Trail’s Teepee is the internal space, which is a big draw to any tent in this style. Ozark has maximized the usable floor by tweaking what we would consider the more typical teepee design. Essentially, the tent is supported by two internal framing poles. Without a central pole, the room’s usability is much increased and probably has something to do with the claim that this tent can sleep 7.

Just bought this tent and went to put it up as I have 5 tents i put up on a camp site and i bought this for my kid and went to put it up and the pole broke. Walmart told me that i would have to call to order new poles that it was mishandled screw, wont buy another one. I’ve done a lot of camping and seen some cheap tents, but when the poles start to give way on only one use, that is just irresponsible from the company. Never again with the name Ozark will I purchase a product. After a night out, girlfriend and I were going to move on to another campsite and found one of the poles was already starting to shatter!

This is just to let you know of my background and my knowledge. Your tents are not even good for more than two or three camping trips before the 10 has to be replaced because of your substandard zippers you put on the front door. The Instant Dome Tent has some pretty neat features besides its easy peasy setup. ozark trail canopy It has two windows and an adjustable ground vent to keep the tent cool and comfortable. It also has a small opening in the back for electrical cord access and an overhead storage loft for flashlights and other essentials. This is a new tent on the market and there seems to be some confusion in the terminology.

Again, not a deal-breaker, but don’t expect these tents to stand up to the same use and abuse as their premium alternatives from brands. With that being said, there are a few things you’ll want to know going into your purchase. First, all Ozark Trail tents should be considered “fair-weather” shelters. That doesn’t mean they all leak when it rains or collapse when it’s windy, but they simply aren’t built for bad weather. Light wind and rain should be fine, but you’ll want to take some steps to prepare for both (more on that below).

Of course I wouldn’t recommend setting up any tent in the flow of water. In recent years I have been in it in rain and snow, and because I am protecting much equipment as I travel I tend to install a tarp over it for added rain protection. Its greatest feature was I could put a queen-sized air mattress—about a foot in thickness inflated—through the door. The three-room cabin is definitely one of Ozark Trail’s more expensive models though, so if you’re shopping on a budget, there are plenty of other models worth considering. The Clip & Camp dome is particularly affordable, and also happens to be one of the most dependable models the brand currently makes. The main thing to know going into an Ozark Trail purchase is that you need to do your due diligence not to overstress the materials because a heavy hand can absolutely damage them.

What I don’t quite like about this divider is that it’s sheer, so not completely opaque, and also, it’s not exactly full length. This Ozark Trail 10-Person Tent has only 2 pockets in the entire tent, and both measure about 13 inches in length and 6 inches in width, which is very tiny for such a huge tent. Every single time I open this door, the zipper will snag at least once, sometimes twice, which can be annoying. The door does have a bug net, but it’s only for half the door, and not the full door. The holes are quite large, so I’m pretty sure that this is not no-see-um mesh. Each window has 2 zippers, which are a little bit noisy, but are generally quite snag-free.

This right here is the perfect tent for beginner campers. They obviously thought that the huge floor area was enough, but they missed to make the tent more user-friendly. There are only 5 small pockets here, so you have one per room and two in the main room.

Multiple interior pockets keep the interior of the tent tidy. An E-port for easy electrical cord access and a media pocket provide a family viewing area. Two large doors at either end of the tent makes entering and exiting the tent easy while a mud mat at each door helps keep the tent clean. The Ozark Trail 10-Person Tent is a comfortable and versatile ozark trail tents alternative for all your family outdoor adventures. In terms of drawbacks, this is a particularly budget-friendly model from an already budget-focused brand, so you’ll need to be mindful of a few shortcomings to get the most out of this shelter. First, Ozark Trail uses sealed seams on this tent, but the fabric itself isn’t made for a rainstorm.

It’s a cool tent all around, but our favorite feature has to be the 360-degree views delivered courtesy of this yurt’s giant mesh windows. There are three of these large floor-level windows along the walls of the tent, plus the giant mesh doorway that can be left open in good weather. We’ve also put together a handy buyer’s guide down at the bottom as a resource for shoppers who are new to the Ozark Trail brand, so make sure to check it out. There you’ll find all the info you could ever want on the materials, build quality, and weather-worthiness of these affordable tents.
