Large Family Tents FAQs

Which Size Family Tent Is Right For Me?

The right family camping tent should be easy to set up and have lightweight construction with plenty of room to stretch out and move around. You can easily increase the size of your family camping tent by adding canvas tent sides and a front awning plus outdoor tarps, or you can add a gazebo that can double as a waterproof storage or play area. For large families and groups, choose a spacious 10-person tent which has plenty of room for storage and sleeping. 8 person tents are also fantastic for accommodating groups and may be an option for families that want a compact versatile solution.

How to accommodate older kids and multiple families?

It pays to think ahead too - a family tent can be quite an investment and if your family is still growing, you may need to calculate if you will all still fit inside in a couple of years' time. Some families may prefer to add an extra smaller tent, or some single swags for older children, which gives everyone some additional space and adds to the sense of adventure for the kids too.

What size tent is best for a family of 4?

For a family of 4, a spacious 6-person tent or 8-person tent is recommended for camping. This ensures enough space for storage, multiple beds and play areas. A smaller 4-person tent is an option but has limited space and can feel crowded, however can be expanded with a gazebo or shade.

What Else Should I Consider When Buying A Family Tent?

Some outdoor tents are divided into several compartments, which can be a bonus if you have older children or teens with you on the trip, and even when you have very small ones who need to go to bed earlier than the rest of the family. Make sure when purchasing a family tent that it is not too big to be set up by just one or two people, as you may struggle at the campsite if you do not have many helping hands! Also look at the weight and size of your tent when in transit - does it fit in the car or do you have to get a roof rack? And can you carry it from the car to the site if there is no direct vehicle access? Check if your family tent offers sufficient ventilation. When more people share a small space, especially in hot weather, circulating air is a must.
