Best Camping Tents for 4 People

4 person tent

If you wish to enjoy a camping adventure with your family or friends, you’ll need a tent that can accommodate everybody. For smaller groups, a 4-person tent is an obvious choice – it has plenty of space for sleeping bags and gear, but still packs fairly compact when it’s time to go home.

Thanks to its large surface area and almost vertical walls, the REI Co-op Grand Hut is an excellent choice if you’re looking for top-level comfort. Combine this with a stable design and impressive water protection, and it’s easy to see why the Grand Hut is the best 4-person tent that you can get.

Materials and Construction

To ensure you stay protected regardless of weather conditions, the rainfly of this 4-person tent is made of high-quality 75D polyester. Furthermore, the canopy underneath it is made of mesh, so you won’t need to worry about it getting too hot and humid inside.

Design and Features

Unlike most other models, the Grand Hut tent is shaped like a cabin. Due to this, the tent is 75 inches tall so you can comfortably stand inside. As for features, the 4-person cabin tent offers multiple pockets, lantern loops, and dual vestibules among other things.

Setup and Packing

Setting up the Grand Hut tent is incredibly easy — you only need to feed the poles through the loops and secure them in the corners. Taking the tent down is equally simple, and the package comes with a heavy-duty bag for easier carrying.

Coleman Instant Cabin 4-Person Tent

For those of you who want to set up the tent as fast as possible, the Coleman Instant Cabin is the one to choose. This great tent comes with an automatic umbrella frame that you can fully open in less than 60 seconds. In addition to this, it offers an abundance of great features too.

Materials and Construction

The rainfly is made of double-thick 150D polyester that keeps you dry even in heavy rain. As for the floor, it’s made of 1000D polyethylene so there won’t be any leaks or punctures from underneath either. Lastly, the frame is made of aluminum and provides excellent support even when it’s windy.

Design and Feature

As its name suggests, the Coleman Instant Cabin is a cabin-style tent with a lot of functional space inside. One of its most interesting features is the Dark Room technology in the fabric that blocks 90% of light and allows you to sleep longer in the morning.

Setup and Packing

As we’ve mentioned, its automatic frame makes it the most convenient model when it comes to setup. Of course, like all other high-quality tents, it comes with an expandable carry bag so you can take it anywhere with you.

Coleman Sundome 4-Person Tent

If you’re on a limited budget, the Coleman Sundome is the best  4-person tent to get. Despite being the most affordable model in our reviews, the construction quality can match any other tent we’ve featured. The Sundome is roomy, comfy, and breathable – perfect for summertime camping.

Materials and Construction

For additional versatility, this model comes with a detachable rainfly. The 75D Taffeta rain fly provides good protection from showers, and removing it exposes the mesh ceiling if you want to let some breeze into the tent. On the other hand, the frame is made of highly flexible fiberglass that is tested to withstand winds of up to 35 miles per hour.

Design and Features

Besides the mesh canopy, the tent also features ground vents in the corners that further improve air circulation. Another thing worth mentioning is the WeatherTec welding system that keeps the floor of the tent dry.

Setup and Packing

Even if you plan to attach guy lines and stake the tent down, the entire setup process won’t take more than 10 minutes. When it’s time to go, the Sundome packs down very compact so it fits easily in your trunk.

These three are the best tents worth buying.
