If you are preparing for camping, you might want to check this list with best camping tents with awnings, in a variety of styles and shapes, suitable for warm weather camping.
Having an awning means that your useful covered space is extended outside of the tent, so you have a pleasant shade where you can sit and relax, or use it for your camp cooking.
Tents are normally built as dome tents, cabin tents, tunnel-shaped tents, and bell-tents, and each of these types can have an awning. So we have included representatives of each of these groups, and you have plenty of options.
How to choose regarding the shape & style
• If this is about an area without much rain and winds, then it is best to go for a cabin-style tent. Such structures are with steep and tall walls, with large windows and great ventilation.
• But if you expect lots of rain and perhaps even some strong winds, it is best to go for a more aerodynamic structure. For this, nothing can beat a dome tent.
• If the area where you plan to camp implies chilly nights, you might want to consider some of the tunnel tents with solid windows.
How to choose regarding the materials
• If you want pleasant and breathable structure suitable for all seasons, then definitely consider some of the canvas tents, you have a few examples here in the list. They will perform great no matter if it is warm or cold.
• But if you are on a limited budget, you will have to go for a synthetic tent. Those are also far lighter and they pack far better than the mentioned canvas tents.
How to choose regarding the area
Even the largest family camping tents on the market are very frequently with the declared capacity determined by the backpacking principle. This means that the manufacturer checks how many sleeping pads can squeeze on the floor, and this is then the declared capacity. But for real camping, this makes no sense and it is always best to downgrade this by half. In other words, if the capacity is 10 people, then plan to use it for a maximum of 5 or so.
But there are great exceptions, and this holds in particular for the camping tents built for the EU market. They are now appearing on the US market as well. Such tents usually have several rooms and this includes a living room as well. You will see some examples in the list.
Now back to the awning feature. Most of the tents have an awning that is created from the vestibule panel and then supported by two extra poles that are usually included in the package. But there are some with a removable awning. This is convenient to avoid unnecessary weight if you plan to camp in a windy area where you would not use the awning in any case. You will see some examples in the list below.
So here is our list of camping tents with awnings ordered alphabetically by the manufacturer’s name, so this is not a ranking. Please follow the links for more.
