The Ozark Trail Base Camp 14-Person Cabin Camping Tent is an attractive model with the use of blue and yellow canvas. The most striking element, however, is the use of different rooms over a large floor space. The living space in this tent is impressive. There is clearly plenty of room to move and options in the set-up. However, size isn’t everything with camping tents.
This spacious cabin tent has great potential for summer family camping trips and larger hunting parties
First of all, there is absolutely no doubt that this is a spacious tent for large groups. It has a tall centre height of 78’’ and is sold as a 14-person tent. The large floor space is separated over four rooms. This not only means that there is room for plenty of occupants in their own sleeping bags, there are divisions between users. This means that parents can sleep in one one and kids in another, with another space as a play area or living areas.
This set up allows users to play around with the configurations. Families with kids can create a cozier home-away-from-home style set-up. Where desired, they can also fit in an inflatable mattress in the parent’s room rather than sleeping bags. Larger groups of hunters, fisherman or other enthusiasts can also make great use of these different rooms. The use of screen and separate entrances helps with privacy. Some will also use one of the rooms as a great place to store gear and equipment. Despite this large size and strange shape, the tent is also said to be pretty easy to put up and take down.

Another benefit with this tent is the ventilation and the view. There are some big window and mesh panels on the doors. This means that there should be a pretty good flow of air in this tent – which is essential with larger numbers. It also means that those stuck in a side room can still see the stars and sights of the natural world around them.
Unfortunately, there are some concerns about the use of this Ozark camping tent as an all-weather, 3-season tent.
There are some elements to this tent that mean that it can hold up to warmer days and some rain. The ventilation and light materials are great during those summer family excursion. The main problem here is that some of the construction and materials can be a little flimsy. There are reports from users that set this up in stormy weather, and then found that it blew down. The poles and supports could be a little more robust. The main issue here is the use of plastic in some of the elements. Many 3-season models use aluminum and carbon fiber for strength in strong winds.
This is a large family tent with plenty of potential
The Ozark Trail Base Camp 14-Person Cabin Camping Tent clearly has some issues. There is plenty of room for improvement in the stability and weatherproofing. This isn’t the best choice for bad weather in colder months. Still, there are few cabin tents that have this much floor space and room for customization in the room layouts.
