Five Best Camping Tents for 4 People

Updated on October 21, 2010

Camping tents are one of the most important things you must never forget because these are the things that provide you protection from the harsh elements outdoors. When camping out with three companions, choose a tent that’s not only going to shield you from the rain, wind and insects but pick the one that can make you all comfortable. Here are some things you should consider when looking for 4-person tent.

First, see that the tent you choose is big enough. Be sure that the size says it’s big enough for four or five people. You don’t want to stay on a small tent like tunas in a can of sardine because your friends won’t like that either so the space really matters. Also, you may want to look at the shape of a tent. Tents come in different shapes. You can pick a square or rectangular one with vertical walls to maximize space, or you can choose dome shapes to prevent grimes from accumulating on top. Dome tents are also some of the strongest tent designs. Pick a dome tent with an ample center height that will allow you enough rooms for movements.

One important thing you can also check when looking for a 4-person tent is the ventilation. Since there will be four of you inside, you will need ample air circulation to keep you all comfortable. A lot of tents today feature no-see-um mesh panels that allow good ventilation while protecting you from mosquitoes and other pests.

Other extra features you may want to check are storage pockets inside the tent. These allow you to use more space for sleeping while keeping your things safe and organized. To demonstrate the good points of the 4-person tents, here are some perfect tents you may want to check out.
