Ozark Trail 4 Person Dome Tent

The Ozark Trail 4 Person Outdoor Camping Dome Tent is an excellent car camping tent for campers on a budget and should be a top pick especially if you’re looking for an occasional car camping or family camping tent. The tent is a great option for campers who only camp occasionally in nicer weather.

The Ozark Trail 4 Person Dome Tent is a three season, free standing, dome style tent that includes fiberglass poles, and multiple interior pockets for storage. Some other nice features include an E-Port which makes it easy to bring electrical power inside your tent and an included rainfly with built-in Awning for extra weather protection. With full mesh roof design, this tent has very good airflow and ventilation and is very suitable for summer camping.

If you are looking for extra room when camping with 4 people, we actually would recommend a 6 person tent.  This 4 person tent is on the small side, but a good size for 2 people camping comfortably.  If you are a fair weather camper who is not camping every weekend and you are on a budget, this is an excellent choice for your needs.

Important Considerations for Ozark Trail Camping Tents

Weather Performance – Many of the Ozark Trail tents on our list were designed to perform well when the weather is nice outside.  We recommend them as an excellent choice for car camping where you have quick access to your car if severe weather comes your way.  For these Ozark Trail Tents, we recommend some add-ons we feel will help make your experience better:

  1. Waterproofing – It make a huge difference even if just a shower or rain starts.  Follow our instructions for Water Proof Tent Basics to weatherproof your Ozark Trail tents.  Products we recommend are:
      1. Seam Grip Sealant with Applicator
      2. Kenyon Seam Sealer 4 Pack (get 2 for large tents, you’ll need extra)
      3. Atsko Silicone Water-Guard
      4. Scotchgard Outdoor Water Shield
  2. Extra Tent Stakes – Most tents come with them, but they get bent or lost or sometimes the tent actually doesn’t include them.  Get some extra tents stakes and keep them with your camping gear.  Our recommendations are below:
      1. Eurmax Galvanized Non-Rust Tent Stakes – A good set of stakes at a great price
      2. Spofine Camping Accessories Kit – Includes: 1-Lightweight (0.84lb) Camping Hammer, 10-Aluminum Tent Stakes, 4-13ft Nylon Rope, 4-Metal Rope Adjusters. Comes packaged in an individual collection bag.

Value – You can still get quality while saving money and our top Ozark Trail tent picks represent value and a nice combination of good quality, durability, and price. Our other options should be considered based on your specific needs and how much money you are willing to spend to meet those requirements.

Comfort – If you are looking at family camping tents and car camping tents, you are most likely considering camping with your family or a small group. The comfort of your group is going to be important at the end of a long day of activities or if bad weather ruins your day. You might consider getting a tent with an extra 2 person capacity. Also consider the number of vestibules and their size to store all your gear outside of the tent while still being protected from the elements.
