Who needs a house?

Paying that mortgage is starting to get a little old, so you might as well just sell the house and move full-time into the ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 6 Two-Room, Six-Person, Three-Season Tent. It's as big as it sounds, with room to sleep the whole family and then some, enough height for a basketball player to stand up, and a room divider to separate the kids from the adults. It's also easy to set up, with fiberglass poles and a hub-style pole system, and has a waterproof fly that clips easily in to place to keep showers from turning your night soggy. Two doors make it easy to get in and out, and six mesh windows let plenty of air move through to keep the tent from getting smelly and stagnant (they also have zippered covers to keep rain and wind out). Dual mesh storage shelves help you stay organized, and the included stakes and guylines make it easy to set the Camp Creek up in no time, if you need to move your home base.

Take Your Glamping to the Max

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was ready to take my glamping game to the next level, so I bought this beast. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I would have given it 5 stars but the first time I used it one of the poles broke, however, ALPS customer service was amazing and they had a new pole in the mail that same day.

It was extremely easy to set up. I'd set up a few 4+ person tents before and it was always a headaches, but this was a breeze. Dare I say, it might even be possible to put this large tent up solo!

7ft. is way taller than I thought but it was amazing! I've never felt more comfy camping, especially going from a 2 person backpacking tent to this glamorous house.

The amount of windows is awesome! Plus, the room dividers are great, but always easily tucked away.

I fit a plush, queen size blow up mattress in it with plenty of room to spare.

Lastly, the tent bag it comes in couldn't be more convenient.

If you are looking to truly embrace all things glamping, then this is your next purchase!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After a couple of backyard uses, we finally got a chance to use this tent on a camping trip. This tent is really quite easy to set up, but make sure you have another person there to assist as doing it solo would be quite a challenge.

once set up, I was quite pleased w/how tight/precise everything fit. With past tents, not everything lined up correctly, or there was something that wasn't quite right once set up. With this tent, there was no slack where there shouldn't be, and the walls were taut, as were the ceiling and floor. The cover went on quite easily as well. Once clipped in, it too was nice and tight. We only used the 10-12 ground stakes to hold this down, and even with some pretty serious gusts, nothing happened too the tent.

As I am now middle aged, we have a queen sized air mattress for the wife and I, and we ended up picking up another one for the kids as it packs down more compactly than two "backpacking" pads. This tent accommodated both queen sized air mattresses with ease, and for walking space. As the description mentions, there are two mesh shelves, and these are located at the ceiling level. I'm 6'0 tall and my head was nowhere near the bottom of these shelves. There wasn't much on them to weigh them down, but I wouldn't put anything heavy up there anyway. Additionally, there are 3 level mesh pockets that clip onto the walls near the doors. These were very nice for putting the car keys, flashlights, and whatever else we felt like putting in them. I did not see these pockets mentioned in the description.

I did get some comments from a couple of rather tall men stating how nice our 7' tent was. It was very nice to be able to stand up to get dressed and whatever else we did in there.

Highly recommend this tent for families/groups of 4 if you use air mattresses. While capacity states 6, I'm sure we could have gotten 8 people in there if we wanted to do so. Of course, one would need to give up the air mattresses (at least queen size) to accommodate more than 6. Even w/the queen sized mattresses, two more people could have slept at our feet quite comfortably. This would have meant keeping our bags outside the tent, but as the car was right there, that wouldn't have been an issue either.

Take down was easy as well. My 8 and 12 year old sons and I got it down and into the bag w/ease. Keep in mind you need to quarter it in order to get it into the bag.

We have yet to encounter any rain so I cannot attest to its water resistance, but it served us well on our 3 night stay @ Big Bear, Cali.
