Ozark Trail Instant Cabin Tent Options

The Ozark Trail Instant Cabin Tents should be one of your top picks if you’re looking for a very large family camping tent. Besides the smaller 6-person, 9-person, and 10-person cabin tents, Ozark Trail also offers multi-room larger instant tents, including our favorite, the 12 person instant cabin tent.  This is a large “L” shaped tent making it more adaptable to most size campsites. The tents are considered an instant tent so setup should be relatively easy. The tents requires no assembly because the poles are pre-attached to the tent, just unfold and extend.

The tents comes in a variety of shapes with options like a screen room and sizes: 6-person, 9-person, 10-person, 11-person, and 12-person.

Ozark Trail 16 x 16 Instant Cabin Tent

The Ozark Trail 12 Person 3 Room L-Shaped Instant Cabin Tent should be one of your top picks if you’re looking for a large family camping tent with an air conditioner port. The reason we feel it is the best tent for families wanting to bring an air conditioner, is the huge 3 room design which is great especially if you have older and younger children camping together. The tent is considered an instant tent so setup should be relatively easy. Another great feature is a large awning for a shady spot near the tent.

Ozark Trail describes the tent: “The Ozark Trail 12-person instant cabin tent sets up in under two minutes! This 12-person tent requires no assembly because the poles are pre-attached to the tent, just unfold and extend. This three-room, cabin-style tent has large windows on all sides and room to stand up with a huge 6’10” center height. It features a large front awning for relaxing under the shade. In addition, it comfortably fits three queen airbeds or up to 12 campers in sleeping bags on the floor. Two internal room dividers allow you to create separate sleeping and living spaces. Keep cool with the oversized ground vent that also fits an air conditioner. Rainfly and carry bag are also included.”

Some things to keep in mind are that this tent is not a tunnel shape like our top pick for 12 person camping tents. This makes this tent more susceptible to winds and harsher weather. However, if you are a fair weather camper who is not camping every weekend and are looking for a large camping tent with an air conditioner port included, and the convenience of a super easy setup, 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.
