When I was young, as one of four children, we went camping OFTEN! If that sounds like your family, keep reading and we will tell you about the best large camping tents! Camping was our getaway since vacations with a big family can be expensive — and well, we all loved the outdoors.

We were lucky to have a pop-up trailer with a king, queen and two full size beds. (Not to mention a sink, microwave, stovetop and coffee maker!) Talk about glamping! Still, it was the way we camped and we loved it.

If a pop up camper is not in the cards, or if you’re only interested in buying a tent, here’s a list of the best large camping tents so your whole family can be comfortable. Each of these tents has unique features that will make your camping trips with the whole crew as pleasant as possible.

Here are 5 campfire breakfast recipes to get you excited about camping.

5 Best Large Camping Tents For The Whole Family

Here’s a list of the best large camping tents. Each has unique features that will make your camping trips with the whole crew as pleasant as possible.

Coleman Tenaya Lake Fast-Pitch 8-Person Cabin Tent with Closet


Size: 13ft x 9ft living space and 2ft x 2ft closet space

When Coleman calls this tent “fast pitch” they mean it! This is one of the best large camping tents out there today. This large cabin tent can be set up in under 10 minutes! This makes for an easy settling in on the first night of your trip. The maximum suggested capacity is 8 persons but for a more comfortable set up, this tent can accommodate two queen size air mattresses. These beds can be easily separated by the room divider for added privacy.

My favorite perk this tent offers is the closet with shelves and a bar for hanging clothing. Having a separate storage space allows for easy clean up and less tripping around in your tent. Coleman also included their welded floor and inverted seams to keep you and your loved ones dry whether it’s from the morning dew, humidity or an unexpected rainstorm. For added convenience, the Tenaya Lake tent also features a e-port so that you can have easy access to electricity to charge your devices or other small appliances.

Coleman WeatherMaster


Size: 17ft x 9ft living space

This Coleman cabin tent is similar in quality to the Tenaya Fast-Pitch tent but it is slightly larger and intended to withstand significant weather, both long lasting rainfall and winds. The WeatherMaster can accommodate up to three queen size air mattresses allowing for even large groups of campers to sleep comfortably.

This cabin tent has two entrances: one hinged door in the front and one in the back so that it is easy to get in and out. If you’re concerned about set up difficulties with such a large tent, not to worry. Coleman has thought ahead of you and color coded each pole with its corresponding pole sleeve. That way you can have all the safety and security without forsaking ease in setup.

Ozark Trail 10 Person, 3 Room XL Cabin Tent


Size: 12ft x 27.5ft living space

This tent was specifically made with family camping in mind. The Ozark Trail 10 person tent can comfortably fit three queen size air mattresses with room to walk around. For your comfort, the tent also includes two room dividers so that you can enjoy the privacy of three separate living spaces, each with their own entrance to the tent!

If you would rather enjoy one large living/ sleeping space, you can take the dividers down and enjoy the panoramic views provided by the whopping six windows!

The  Ozark 10 Person, 2 Room Tent is similar to the Ozark three room tent except it includes a small gear loft to stow away small items and an opening for electrical cord access. It’s a great pick for families who don’t need to accommodate as many people.

CORE 11 Person Cabin Tent with Screen Room


Size: 17ft x 12ft living space

This CORE 11 person cabin tent can sleep up to 11 people and comfortably fit up to three queen sized air mattresses but that’s not all! My favorite feature of this cabin tent is the screen room or entry room for the tent. The screen room provides a small sitting area to enjoy the views and cool weather, free of bugs or inclement weather.

Of course, all of the screen windows include closures for a complete privacy option as well! In addition to a separate living/ sleeping area, CORE also equipped its tent with a gear loft and electrical cord access port for a more comfortable and convenient camping experience.
