Kodiak Canvas Flex-Bow Deluxe 8-Person Tent
The Tent: Kodiak Canvas Flex-Bow Deluxe 8-Person Tent ($650)
Who It's Best For: An adventurous family
Why People Love It: One reviewer said they liked it because it was fit for a large family and great quality. "We just purchased this tent to take our family out several times every month. We encountered 30-40 mph gusts, with sand, and rain, and this tent performed beyond admirably. Keeps you warm at night, keeps you dry in the rain, nice and quiet in the wind, and easy to set up to boot."
Yodo Lightweight 2 Person Camping Backpacking Tent With Carry Bag
Who It's Best For: Someone taking a kid on their first camping trip
Why People Love It: This reviewer said it's light enough for someone small to carry. "We purchased this for our son's first Boy Scout backpacking trip. We love the size and quality, it was perfect for an 11-year-old to sleep in by himself or with another scout. He has used this so far on two backpacking trips and he has had no problems. It is so light and compact, all of the scouts were jealous with the size on his pack as they all had much larger tents that were heavier."
Coleman Pop-Up Tent
The Tent: Coleman Pop-Up Tent 4 Person ($100)
Who It's Best For: The lazy camper
Why People Love It: This pop-up tent is totally worth it if you're over the whole setting-up process. It comes in two sizes: for two or four people. One reviewer said, "This tent is legit. The price is amazing, and the quality is fantastic. I was looking for something easy because we have an old tent that takes a half-hour to set up, this Coleman is easy. The tent literally sets up itself in two seconds, I timed it. No poles, no clips, just open the thing up and it's finished."
Core 9 Person Instant Cabin Tent
The Tent: Core 9 Person Instant Cabin Tent ($250)
Who It's Best For: A family looking for a view
Why People Love It: This large tent is equipped to fit two queen-sized air mattresses, and it's airy. One reviewer said, "The amount of windows is exactly what I was looking for. The air intakes by the floor are a great way to keep air moving through the windows."
Napier Backroadz Truck Tent
The Tent: Napier Backroadz Truck Tent ($180)
Who It's Best For: A pickup-truck owner
Why People Love It: One reviewer said being off the ground can help you get away from nasty weather conditions. "Thunderstorms, gusty winds, three inches of rain in five hours — the tent didn't budge or wiggle, and there was no water in the bed or in the tent. Top notch construction, taped seams."
Alps Mountaineering Lynx 1-Person Tent
Who It's Best For: The solo globetrotter
Why People Love It: This reviewer traveled to many different climates, and this tent still held up great. "I am one of those people that does extensive research before making any purchase so that I am sure its what I want, and I don't end up spending 100+ dollars on something I will regret later. I was so happy with this purchase. I've camped probably eight times with this tent since I've bought it. From desert heat in the Mojave to snow in the Sequoias, even really windy conditions at the top of some ridges, even rain and hail storms."
Coleman Hampton 6 Person Family Camping Cabin Tent
The Tent: Coleman Hampton 6 Person Family Camping Cabin Tent ($280)
Who It's Best For: Someone looking to camp in an apartment
Why People Love It: This reviewer loved the size. "I can stand up and walk through the entire tent with overhead room to spare. The door works like a spring-hinged screen door, and is so much easier than zipping and unzipping for each entry. Goes up quickly and easily. Comes with a room divider and a small door mat."

Kelty Trail Ridge 6 Tent
The Tent: Kelty Trail Ridge 6 Tent ($400)
Who It's Best For: A budget-conscious family
Why People Love It: Some of these large tents can range over $500. At less than that, this reviewer said this was an affordable family buy. "The Kelty Trail Ridge 6 is a truly outstanding value in a spacious, no-compromises family tent. The price range may seem high to the uninitiated, but trust me, this is more than twice as nice as what $100 will buy you, and it shares the most important features and details of tents that run all the way into the $500 range."

The Tent: Toogh 3 Person Camping Tent Backpacking Tents ($89)

Three people can comfortably fit inside along with your backpacks. I like that it had a storage zipper for your phone."
