12 Best Big Camping Tents Reviewed – Perfect For Larger Groups

Camping with a large group or family? Check out our complete guide to the 10 best big camping tents that won’t break the bank.

Some people camp for the solitude, while other people camp to socialize. If you tend toward the latter, you might want to consider a tent where everyone can be together. Yet large tents have a reputation for being unwieldy and difficult to set up so it’s easy to see why some people think they’re more trouble than they’re worth.

But tent technology continues to improve and today’s cabin-style tents offer the comforts of home and they’re easy to set up. (A few even come with the claim that they can be set up in a minute or two!) If you’re looking for a tent option that offers a roomy interior, ample headroom, and plenty of space for storage, here are the 12 best big camping tents we could find.

Coleman WeatherMaster Tent

  • Sets up easily in 20 minutes
  • Measures 17 x 9 feet with 6-foot 8-inch center height

Unlike many other large camping tents, the Coleman WeatherMaster Tent has an aerodynamic dome shape that will ensure it withstands the elements and lives up to its name. This rain-ready tent also has angled windows and waterproof floors to keep you—and nine other people—dry. When the weather forecast is good, the all-mesh roof (underneath the rain fly) provides maximum airflow and a view of the stars. This tent also comes in a smaller 6-person size.
