Love This TeePee Tent
I could not wait to get my Ozark Trail 7 Person Teepee in the mail. What an awesome idea for a tent. I thought easy set up...sure. But I have put this tent up twice by myself now and it is extremely easy if you know what you are doing. I did watch a youtube video and read the instructions before the attempt but I put it up within 15 minutes. The attached instructions are extremely easy to follow and I so appreciate they are sewn on to the carrying bag so you will never lose them. This Ozark Trail 7 Person Teepee Tent is so unique with the 2 pole design and no center pole, which is what I was expecting. You will need to lay out the tent and spike it down, snap the poles together and prepare to place them in the tent. Once you snap the poles together and get them in the tent you will need to remember to pull the extending part of the legs at the bottom. Once you do that, easy peasy up it goes. It seems very well made and durable. It's so spacious, not sure we would sleep 7 in this tent but 4 with NO problem. I also was impressed with all the ventilation this tent has. Easy open windows and you can really get a great cross ventilation going. I really likes all the convenient pockets for storing small stuff like cell phones or toiletries. Lots of little extras you will find with the Ozark Trail 7 Person Teepee Tent. I would recommend this Tent to anyone and everyone who loves to camp and likes something a little unconventional.
Used in our backyard all weekend to have some fun activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Had it up from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon with heavy storms (rain and wind) on Saturday evening. No leaks during any of the storms. Should be a great backyard tent for years to come.
My Favorite Tent Ever
I'm going to go ahead with the five-star rating. I absolutely loved this tent. I will start with the only negatives which one was that the rain flap over the door zipper continuously got caught when trying to open and close. I have managed to figure out how to hold everything just right so it opens without catching. The only problem with that is I always have to put everything down as it takes two hands. (I'm totally off the grid where I camp and you don't always want to put down what you are holding. Especially in the dark.) The other negative was that the black gnats could fit in the screens. The mesh looked extremely well made and like it should have prevented them coming in, but they fit the little tiny holes! I just pulled the window covers up during the day to prevent them coming in and the gnats went away by sundown so I could lower the covers during the night. Nothing else seemed to fit through. So, the positives: I really liked the windows almost all the way around. As someone else stated, it would be nice to have a screen door. I backed my Jeep up against the side of the tent opposite of the door and slept on that side where there was no window. I was then able to see all around, outside the tent all night. (You know, watching for Squatch and such. (Wink, wink.) I did hear a knock, though!) Anyway, I did like the near panoramic view and it made me feel a little safer being able to look into the dark not that I could see a thing but if I shone a light out I could. The best part was that I could stand up completely to get dressed. I just held on to the tent pole at the top for balance. I also didn't have to step very high to walk into the tent. With the door open you could walk right in. Very roomy. I could easily have fit a chair in with my bedding. The last night camping all the men had left and the grandmother and two young children were left with me. They were a little nervous and there would have been plenty of room for all of us with our gear in this one tent. So two adults and two kids. Three adults could have slept comfortably in there. The set up was fairly easy. Don't trip on your guy lines in the dark!!!! (Not saying I did, but...) Anyway, I've been camping my entire life, (got a few decades on me now,) and I felt this was one of my favorite tents ever. I got lots of complements from everyone who saw it. I've always kept little two-man pop-up tents, 16-man tents, and everything in between. I'm pretty adept at setting up any tent but this one was super easy. It took a couple minutes to figure out how to get the poles set up and extended, but it worked beautifully. I was able to do it all on my own. So, good price, quality remains to be seen with time, easy set-up, easy take-down, EXTREMELY roomy, can stand up straight, and it looks good!
I really like the Ozark Trail 7 person teepee tent, but I did have difficulty putting it up. The instructions do say it takes 2 people. We had to use 3 people. Only two poles hold the entire tent up. So, one person has to stand inside the tent holding those two poles in place while all the outside straps are anchored in place. And then came the hard part. Once everything else is in place it tells you to extend the poles even farther at the bottom until they snap in place. This was not easy while keeping them in there place. Also, once we did this, we could no longer fit them into their Velcro straps that secure them in place. But the poles will stay up and in place without the velcro. Once fully together it’s really nice. The inside is really big and it’s well made. I really do like it a lot. I just wish it was a bit easier to put up.
Love it. I've used it about 4 times this past year. It's spacious enough to have a queen size air mattress inside with a tad bit extra room. Mine did not come with directions, but it's such an easy tent to put up that I didn't need them! Easy to transport, light weight, yet durable! Had 4 zipable windows, wish it had 6. Only downside, the color. I hate green! But in love this tent, and brand.
Bought this to put in the backyard for a date night idea. Setup was easy and i did it by myself. All you do is spread out the tent, place the stakes in and then place the two poles in. The only tricky part was trying to extend the legs. After i got it extended, the rest was easy. Very spacious! 4 windows, 3 pouches to store things, and a tablet holder! It also has a little slit in the tent so you can pull in an extension cord. And it looks cool! Very pleased!
Absolutely love this! It's huge fits a queen size mattress and there's still lots of room to move about. It's my camping paradise! And soooooo cute!!!
Camp party tent
Love this. Pretty simple set up, but directions are not too clear. Only 1 peerson to set all but center, takes 2 people to set up center pole. Fits 4 comfortably, Fun party tent.
Function and Fun
Don't let bad reviews keep you from the fun experience of using this great tent! I almost did not buy this tent myself because of bad reviews. I'm glad I decided to give it a try. I figured for $50 I would try it and if it didn't work I would return it. I am a 41 year old mother of three daughters. My girls and I go camping on our own. My 11 year old and I set this tent up in about 10 minutes. I am a visual learner so I did watch a YouTube video prior to set up and tested it out in our backyard before our camping trip in the mountains. The tent went up quickly and was sturdy. We did have some light rain and we stayed dry with no problem. While using this tent many people stopped to tell us how cute our campsite was and how fun the tent looked. I had a queen mattress, a twin mattress, a dog bed, our luggage and still had plenty of room. I would highly recommend this tent. It's functional and whimsical. My daughters loved it!
cute but tough to set up alone
I consider myself a strong female, however; I could not pop the last pole into place without help. I could not keep it for this reason. It has no screen on the door. I misread the advertisement so no fault of the tent. It is cute and a good tent for kids backyard camping so long as a parent sets this tent up. Good for a fair but rain proof it first!
Happy I Bought This Tent
Super impressed with this tent. I'll start by saying I have a lot of different camping systems and gear for different trips. I bought this for backyard camping with my daughter and it blew me away. Somehow for $56 we managed to get a family sized tent that is actually pretty awesome. It was slightly windy and raining while we slept and we stayed totally dry, no leaks at all. It was pouring when we woke up so we left it set up while it rained all day. Checked the next day and still no leaks. Super spacious, easy to set up, two people is preferred for set up. Breakdown is easy peasy. All in all I would say this is a great tent, especially for the price. Anyone who's complaining either has a defect or didn't set up right. The negative reviews almost made me skip this tent, I'm glad I didn't
NO!!! Dry weather only tent
This is a dry weather tent. I am presently in the tent in the rain, and the water came right through the fabric after a while. the seams also leaked. The floor has held up so far. I have had a lot of tents and this one is the most leaky of them all! in addition to this when it rains all the windows and the door has to be closed, so one cannot see outside; I am camping by the lake, I love looking at the rainfall oh, and I am stuck staring at the walls of this leaky tent, cleaning up the puddles of water before they get too big... I will be returning it to the store soon as possible
Our Family Really Likes It!
Easy 1 person set up, even if petite! Water proof, tested with lots of garden hose spraying in back yard while my kids inside screamed with glee. Door Zipper: Had to peel back some water proof stripping that got on inside of zipper door. But no prob after that IF you hold rain fly out of way when zipping to prevent it from getting stuck.
Favorite tent ever
I absolutely love this tent! I bought it because it was advertised to be good in severe weather and boy is it! I was camping for 3 weeks and we got some crazy storms (tornado watch and hail storms) alot of the other tents in our camp saw some serious damage from those storms...water...broken supports ect... I was worried that since I didn't tarp it (kinda hard to) that I would find some water damage inside.... nope, just a small quarter sized "puddle" but that could have been condemnation. There are some small cons to this tent though... you cant really install hanging shelves or clip a lantern anywhere (unless you're taller than me) the door doesn't have a screen opening option so it does get a little stuffy and if you're short like me it's hard to reach the zipper if it's open the whole way. Those cons are totally worth feeling safe and dry in your travels though!
Wouldn't stay up poles weren't long enough
Makes a perfect play house (teepee)
My niece's kids come over a lot and that is the main reason I selected this tent for my Spark Review. It is easier to set up than I expected. I am in my 70's and actually set it up alone. Not easy peasy but I got it done. The kids have spent many hours playing in it. They even spent the night in it. It is a well constructed tent with plenty of room for seven as the description says. With just the three kids I included a small table for drawing and such. On the other side of the coin this would make an excellent camping experience. It would be filled to capacity with 7 but if all you are doing is using it for sleeping you could leave the air mattresses within the tent at all times. I really like this even if it will stay in my back yard. When the weather is cool I fully intend to do some lounging and reading within it. I do not think anyone would be disappointed with this product. It is a quality product.
Description says this will hold 2 queen size air mattress and it is did not.
Leaks terribly when it rains
The tent is exactly as described, Good value for price
A little difficult to but ok and spacious Fits 5
