Teepee tents (or tipis) are a popular style of tent for festivals, parties or events and they can also be taken on camping trips for small or large groups. They have a unique shape and most have a single-pole structure, to give them that high centre peak, which makes them spacious and perfect for standing up in.
Teepee tents are usually fully floored which gives you protection from the ground underneath you and any creepy crawlies that may be lurking around. Most teepees have a single-layer design although some have more than one layer.
Although teepee tents can be quite compact, due to their high sloping sides and circular base, they feel extremely roomy inside.
What to consider when buying a teepee tent
Teepee tents come in a variety of sizes to a single person tent to ones for large groups. They have good headspace and big floor areas, so it all depends on how many people will be sleeping in the tent.
Ventilation is important, especially in the summer, so make sure there are plenty of vents for good air flow. Hooded vents in the roof and lower vents near base are all important. Plus a mesh window that can be closed and opened is also good.
Depending on size, teepee tents can be fairly straightforward to slightly more tricky at setting up. It may be worth having a trial run before you actually take the tent camping if possible.
There are plenty of options and styles of teepee tents. As well as the more traditional shape you can also get bell tipi tents and yurts, which have the sloping sides but have more of a circus tent shape with flat sides. We have focused on all styles in this article.
