Stay protected during camping trips or outdoor events with top-rated camping tents, backpacking tents and instant-up canopies from DICK'S Sporting Goods.
Outdoor tents come in a range of styles to suit a variety of nature enthusiasts–from the casual family camper to the serious outdoorsman. Whether you're looking for a camping tent, lightweight tent for backpacking, or a truck tent, you can find the right-sized tent for your next overnight trip. To find the ideal tent or shelter, read user reviews then shop top brands like Coleman, Eureka!®, Field & Stream® and The North Face®.
For more casual outdoor events or tailgates, a pop-up canopy provides needed shade. Browse all canopies or check out the top-selling Quest 10x10 foot Instant-Up canopy for an instant covering that is lightweight, portable and easy to set up.
The type of camping you plan to do, the environment in which you will use the tent, and the number of campers and amount of equipment should be the primary factors to consider when making a purchase decision.
It is extremely important to consider the amount of space you will need, based on the number of campers and the amount of gear you want to keep inside the tent. Keep in mind that a four person tent is designed to accommodate four people and does not include additional space for equipment. Make sure you carefully consider the dimensions of the tent and make sure there will be enough space for your crew and your gear.
When selecting your tent keep in mind the tent accessories that will help to make your experience comfortable and successful. DICK'S Sporting Goods delivers a range of items like floor sealant for extra water protection, portable fans for proper ventilation and gear lofts for extra storage.
For larger groups of campers, look for tents offering more than one door. Additional doors allow easier entrances and exits without disturbing your tent-mates.
Vestibules are a great option for additional covered storage for your gear outside the main tent area. These are often extended areas under the rain fly that allow space for backpacks, muddy boots, trekking poles and more. Gear lofts are similar to hammocks or shelves inside the tent, providing you additional space to organize gear inside the tent.
