Family Tents Ames IA
Cedar Rapids, IA
Shelter for the Whole Clan
If you're planning on setting up camp for an extended period of time - especially if you're camping with your family or a few friends - you may want to invest in a large family camping tent.
These tents are quite spacious and because of this they are a little heavier to carry around. Most people use family tents when they are camping with the car; however there are some smaller and lighter models that you can take with you when you're backpacking.
One of the most popular features of family tents is that they often come with one very large room or with a removable room divider. This divider lets you separate the tent into smaller, private rooms. Most of the regular tent features are included in family tents - such as vestibules, windows, multiple doors, rainflys and vents, etc. Family tents are usually set up with strong and sturdy aluminum or fiberglass poles, to keep the structure sturdy and stable in windy weather.
There are various models of family tents available and you'll find that they generally hold between four and 12 people - depending on the size. The bigger tents usually have room separators installed in them. You will also find that most family tents are three-season tents ; however there are some four-season/expedition tents on the market for families who like to camp all year round.
Because family tents are quite large, they are very popular for families who go camping in camp grounds for extended period...
