This tent is good for the camper that likes good weather. I had this tent and put it through a series of weather conditions. The rain guard on this tent could be a little longer. During windy situations the rain guard lifts up and will allow rain to enter the tent. The poles on this tent lasted through 30mph winds. Around 45 is when the poles completely snapped and the tent was lost. This is a very light weight easy to setup tent. Perfect even for a queen size blow up bed.
Says sleeps 4, maybe 2 adults or one adult and 2 kids. Went up quickly, no issues. Low roof clearance, count on being on your knees inside. Good value, easy to set up and break down. For use in spring or summer months. Would make great kids tent! Has power cord entrance next to door, didnt see that mentioned when purchasing, little bonus.
i absolutly love this tent it is very easy to put up only two poles .......and NO ropes that will trip you at night and you dont have to like weave the poles through those flap things there those clip on things so this tent is perfect for the money the only flaw is there is no windows but o well this tent rocks so buy it
I got this tent for a camping trip when I discovered my old tent had seen it's last trip. Over all it's a good tent, pretty spacious for $32. Fit a queen size air mattress with plenty of room for my back pack and other stuff. Very easy to set up, was up in less than 5 mins, which was great since I'd just hiked a mile to the camp site.
I've been in this tent for 225 straight days, if you go camping for one week a year, six nights in camp, I would have had this tent for 37 years. The tent does leak a little, and it's a little beat up now after two animal attacks which ripped the netting and bent a pole, and the second attack broke the pole, but duct tape and silicone sealer is a campers best friend. I have four feral cats that are pretty tough on a tent and I wonder why people who have much more expensive tents complain about the zippers all the time. I have zipped and unzipped this tent between 1500-2000 times with no zipper problems whatsoever. I reccomend this tent as a good beginning tent.
I bought this tent for my two boys, 13 & 9. We took it camping memorial day weekend and the boys loved it. It was very easy to set up and had enough room for a full size air bed and all their stuff.
Hi everyone i'm 13 years old and just bought my ozark trail 9 by 8 dome tent. The rain tarp seemed loose so i just tied a knot in the bungies which tightened the rain tarp and my problems were solved. For those of you who who had problems with the seams leaking try buying some seam tape to keep out water.i have put seam tape on my parents tent before and it worked great in the rain. other than the leaks, this ten was a great buy as i bought the sleeping bag chair tent combo pack for $40.00. As long as you're not planning to camp in severe weather i think you should be just fine. Overall a great value for anyone looking to buy a camping starter kit. hope this helps ;)
I was a first time camper so I had no idea what to get. Read the other reviews and took advantage of the $40 walmart combo deal. We set up the tent at home (to be sure we had everything and could do it) the week before our trip and we were done in less then 15 minutes (and I was in heels!). Directions are very plain & simple to follow. The tent practically builds itself! Which was really good because we didn't get to our campsite until well past sunset so we were working by lantern. We used it in 38 degree weather this past weekend and it did a pretty darn good job. It was cold, but it didn't budge in the wind or rain...no leaking either. I will be weather proofing it for future trips...just to be on the safe side. We added a heater the second night and we were living in luxury :D
I wouldn't recommend this tent to my worst enemy. We bought two of them, one for the kids ad one for us.
While setting up the kids' tent I noticed that OZARK TRAIL while making the tent somehow got the door zipper caught up in the roof mesh. The only way to fix the problem was to rip the mesh to free the zipper. (Strike 1)
While setting up our tent, I noticed that I was three tent stakes. (Strike 2)
The second night of camping we had some overnight rain, and both tents leaked to the point that we all woke up in puddles. (Strike 3)
I will never buy another OZARK TRAIL tent again.
* we just went camping last weekend , and we loved this tent. Easy to set it up nd very spacious. We were very carefully setting it up and we had a great sleep sleep in the wood. Oh one more thing, if you removed the cover from the top, you can see the beautiful star the whole night..Everyone that came along, loved this tent..
This tent is perfect and if you buy the package deal that comes with a sleeping bag and a chair, you cant go wrong. Its only 40 bucks and i can honestly say it was the best 40 bucks i spent this year.
I bought this in the bundle pack with the chair and the sleeping bag for me and my cubscout sons camping adventures the tent was way bigger than i expected easy to set up and roomy i had a twin size air mattress in it and plenty more room for another mattress if i wanted didnt camp in rain or anything but it did great and to get all 3 of these for just $40 it was a GREAT DEAL
I bought this tent because it was rated as weeather proof, it was not. I had puddles in each of the corners and also by the door. The rain flap worked well, it was at the seems that it leaked.
The tent was very easy to put up with 1 person and very easy to take down.
Took out my new Ozark tent for a short trial spin and what a weekend it was. 44 degree weather and rain (Central Florida Campground.)
The bottom is tarp based so the water was not an issue on the base but the walls seem to be water repellent and not water resistant. The set up was easy and I had the tent up in 6 minutes flat just as the sun was setting. The ease of set up was incredible!
-Scotch guard the walls a week before you camp.
-Seal the corner seams as I had some minor leaking during a full day of rain.
-Bring a tarp as the rain fly is small and does not come away from the tent sides.
All in all, a great product for the price even with the minor adjustments needed.
I ordered the product through Walmart online and was given a delivery date that fit my need parameters. I was traveling to S Florida and planned to pick the tent up in Naples on my way. The originating warehouse was in S Carolina & the product was shipped immediately. However, somewhere in transit, the system broke down & delivery was delayed another week. I do not understand how it could take 3 weeks for a product to travel 740 miles. I found this totally unacceptable as my vacation was over before the product ever arrived at the store. Whats more, the product was listed as not available in stores. When I went to the store in Naples, 3 of these tents were on the shelf so I was able to purchase one. The tent worked well & was of good quality. The ordering process is one I'll NEVER use again. The delivery times were excessively long and totally unacceptable. If its not in the store-forget it, go to Target or, in the midwest, Meijer.
I bought this tent to use as a 4 season tent. For winter I put a 12 x 12 tarp over it that covered 3 sides and was open in the front that tied to the trees where I could place extra items that would not get wet. I camped in 20 degree weather with a small propane heater on low and was 75 degrees inside even though I left the door partially open for ventilation. It has an E-port for a power cord which was an extra bonus since I run a generator and run a cord in to power a small light and coffee pot. I put a cot on one side, the heater fit in the corner and a small bench for my laptop on the other side from the cot. Other items simply slid under the cot or neat the end of the bunk. Had to kneel while I was in it but I will use it over and over. For winter camping I would say it used no more than 30#'s of propane over a weeks time with the heater running 24/7 on the low setting.
I bought this tent cause we have a small one, and decided to purchase a bigger one. Now I have reviews saying the poles snapped well me and my wife with careful care we put up the tent with ease and the poles stayed for about a week. It is very roomy inside. Now we tried to stimulate the rain cause it didn't rain we had it up during this time, she put the water hose to it. It did leak however after I put on Silicone cause walmart didn't have seam sealer the Silicone stopped the leak. I will have a tarp just in case however I feel like we will like this tent and therefore I recommend this tent. Now poles for the awning I feel like it just might puncture the material so I suggest using duck tape for the ends.
I bought this tent because my husband and I live on a budget and most of the reviews were positive. I understand that every product will have its share of positive and negative reviews, and decided to go with this tent based on the number of positive reviews. We bought extra tent pegs just in case the included stakes bent, which two of them did, but only because we were trying to hammer them into rock. As soon as we reached our campsite, we had about 10 minutes to get it up before a wicked storm hit. It was easy to get up and we did appreciate that, however, we immediately noticed that the tent leaked like a sieve. And not just the seams (which we would have expected), but the panels themselves leaked. While the rain fly did its job, we had to constantly mop up the water that collected in the bottom of the tent. We sat there and watched the rain bead up and come through the panels. As it rained the entire weekend, it was a miserable experience overall. We promptly returned the tent at our local store.
When I found this tent on line, we already had a very large, 3 Room, Tent that will fit our whole family of 8, but needed a much smaller tent for when it is just myself and one or two of my sons going on a hunting trip.
We have only used this tent on one trip so far, for a total of two nights, but I am very pleased so far (especially when you consider the low price). We have not had a chance to test it out in the rain yet, so I am not sure how well that will work out, and I will admit it does seem to be a bit tricky to get the rain fly “just right”, but it looks like it should do a fine job for at least a moderate rain.
We just went camping this past weekend, the tent was set up in maybe 10-15 minutes. We had a double mattress for two adults and one dog. There was still room for one more person. The top of the tent is not closed off, so that is nice when you want to lay down and look at the trees/stars. We put the rain guard on before we went to sleep, it did not rain, but I am sure we would have stayed dry.
I bought the bundle with the chair and sleeping bag. If you are going to get this tent, I would suggest paying an extra $8 for both of those.
We will definitely be using this tent a lot more!
