Are you just getting started camping? Many people struggle to choose the best tent for their needs. Before you make your purchase, you'll want to determine the size of tent you need. First, find out how many family members will be staying in your tent. Next determine the amount of gear to be kept in the tent.
Families with small children find they need more room than couples or families with older kids. If you're camping with children under 8 years old, add one person for the extra gear required. You can also purchase army tents online for outdoor camping.

Many families make the mistake of thinking small children will take up less room when the opposite tends to be true. Now decide what you are going to sleep on. Lately many campers have dropped the idea of throwing a sleeping bag on the floor of the tent and have gone to folding cots.
While folding cots make for a much more comfortable experience, they take up more room and you will need to consider that. Getting a lighter tent, even if you need two for your family will make your trip much more enjoyable. First, how often do you plan to use your tent. As with everything, you get what you pay for.
