Top Four Person Tents Reviewed

A good, four-person camping tent can be a useful shelter option for smaller groups of campers.

They come in handy, especially for groups of 2 or 3 campers who want a little extra space for sleeping bags and gear.

Most 4 person tents are big enough to hold 4 people, although you’ll find it can get a little cramped.

These tents are bigger than the lightweight 2 person tents, and ultralight 1 person tents, but are light and small enough to carry a short distance from your car to your campsite.

For 2 people, a 4 person tent can be the optimal size for a more comfortable trip into the backcountry.

While camping can be a rugged experience where you test your will against nature, for some, its just nice to have some space and get a nice, refreshing night’s sleep.

You can even deck them out with bigger air beds and mattresses, a fan, and all your cool camping gadgets and electronics.

Be sure to check below for our ratings and reviews of the best 4 person tents available today.
