Choosing the Right Tent for Your Family

Choosing the Right Tent for Your Family

One crucial factor in having a successful camping / hiking trip for your family centers around selecting the right tent.  Afterall, it will be your home-away-from-home while you are “living outdoors.”

How do you know which tent is the right one for you?….answer these few questions to determine your selection:

  • Does the tent provide ample protection from the elements?
  • Is the tent made of quality material?
  • Does the tent have plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably?
  • Will the tent fit in your vehicle?
  • Is the tent light enough for you to carry it to and from your campsite?
  • Price…how much are you willing to pay?

Tents range in price anywhere from a hundred dollars or less to several hundred dollars or more. Minimize the time you spend looking for the perfect tent by starting your search at Cabela’s. With a wide range of tents to choose from in a variety of prices, Cabela’s is bound to have the right tent for your family. Here are a few we like, broken down by price range.
