The Best Tents For A Backyard Camping Experience

You don’t need to go far from home to enjoy the Great Outdoors.

Camping is a wonderful bonding experience as old as time itself. The work that goes into preparing a successful trip can be daunting and time-consuming, however. That doesn't always need to be the case, given the appropriate backyard and space. Here are the best tents to help set up you and your friends and/or family for memorable backyard camping experience.

Sometimes the best part of camping is the setup; most times, it's not. For campers and outdoorsmen who don't care for setting up their tents, there are solid options available.

Almost any time you're outdoors for an extended period of time, it's best to find something that'll protect you from the elements—especially rain. Your outdoor lodging experience shouldn't be memorable for being soaked and uncomfortable.

While tents can keep you covered from the sun, it takes you out of the experience while squeezing you between their walls. Whenever the sun is high and strong, it's best to have a tent that provides some overhead shading while still allowing a breeze to run through its side.

Sometimes a little privacy goes a long way, even if it's just a thinly veiled separation within the same tent. Having the appropriate separation and space with your friends and family can be the difference between having an awesome camping experience and a horrid one.
