There are many styles of camping shelters to choose from including screened rooms, packable styles and more.
• Tailgating-style Tents easily lift up over a picnic table or can be used at the beach when the brightness and heat can be more of a burden than a joy. These are generally taller so that people can walk in-and-out or stand under it with ease. Think tailgating tents or event tents.
• More Packable Tailgating-style Tents are often used when car camping or if you have a camper. The poles tend to be closer in style to a tent pole and usually won’t cover an entire picnic table.
• Screen Rooms are Tailgating-Style Tents that close off to help keep the bugs away. They are one of the more popular camper tents because of the added bug protection but pack larger than the others
Other Freestanding Shelters are small enough to fit over a hammock as well or are designed to cover a camping tent.
Some things to be aware of though is how the Freestanding Shelter stays on the ground. Pounding stakes in the ground may be an option but some may have to be weighed down so they don’t blow away or tip over.
