Amid travel concerns during the coronavirus pandemic, camping has risen in popularity with people gravitating towards the great outdoors for safer, socially-distant escapes. In fact, Kampgrounds of America (KOA) found that one-fourth of North American campers took their first-ever camping trip amid the pandemic and many will continue camping in 2021.
But if you’re camping with a family, you know pitching (and taking down) multiple tents can eat up a lot of time that you could be spending roasting s’mores, lazing in a hammock or exploring U.S. national parks (here’s when you can visit the parks for free in 2021). Plus, wouldn’t it be cool to have everyone in your group under the same “roof,” but still be able to retreat to different rooms?
The solution: A supersized tent that can be divided into separate rooms! Vango’s Odyssey Family Tunnel Tent ($576.73) on Amazon can accommodate eight campers with a layout that includes two sleeping pods, one at each end of the tent.
Using included clips and dividers, you can create up to five separate rooms in this spacious tent. The tent has a large “living room” area with a full stand-up height that’s perfect for gathering and playing games or enjoying a meal if it’s raining outside. Talk about happy campers!
The family tent also has Vango’s patented technology to provide extra stability in high-wind conditions and a fully sewn-in groundsheet. This makes the tent more comfortable and keeps out bugs and water.
If you’re looking for some more cool camping gear, this camping cot will suspend you a foot from the ground, making for more comfy sleeping and protecting you from creepy-crawlers or snow on the ground.
