Here you have the list with best camping tents with closets and cabinets, all very different designs that offer a useful storage area or extra sleeping area. Please keep reading.
The tents in the list are ordered alphabetically so the numbers are only for navigation and this is not a ranking.
- Regarding the construction, these are all very tall cabin style tents, but some are with extra features like a hinged door or instant setup.
- Regarding the best use, these are all more or less summer camping tents with plenty of mesh on the ceiling for an optimal ventilation. They are with a minimal fly which protects the roof only, but this is why you have unobstructed views through large windows available in all the tents here.
- As for the inner structure, these are large family camping tents and they allow for multiple room configurations.
- Most of the tents are freestanding.
So here they are with some basic features, for more please follow the links to my full reviews:
1. Coleman Tenaya Lake 6 Person Fast Pitch Cabin Tent With Cabinets
This Tenaya Lake 6 tent is a typical cabin style tent with two rooms created by a removable divider. But it comes with those two cabinets on the rear side, which you see in the picture above. They are with zippered doors from inside, and they come equipped with shelves. Each of the mentioned two rooms has one cabinet.
This tent is what they call ‘fast pitch’ and this describes the roof poles that are all with bungee cords attached to the hub element on the top, so this makes the setup fast and easy. Yet another great feature here is its hinged door. The tent is with 6 steel legs poles and 6 fiberglass roof poles.
If you need to see some numbers, the weight is 33.2 lb (15.06 kg), the total floor area is 99 ft² (9.2 m²), and the peak height is 80 in (203 cm).
2. Coleman Tenaya Lake Fast Pitch 8 Person Tent
This Tenaya Lake 8 tent is very similar to the Tenaya Lake 6 in all details except in its closet which you see in the picture above. So as you realize, there is only one but this is a tall structure, completely different from the Tenaya Lake 6 cabinets. This closet has an area of 4 ft² (0.37 m²) and it comes with its own poles that support its roof. From inside, you have a curtain with a vertical zipper.
This tent is also with a hinged door, and you have the same fast-pitch hubbed poles system. There are 2 rooms here and 5 windows, and one E-port is available.
Here are a few numbers:
- Weight: 35.4 lb (16 kg).
- Dimensions: 13 x 9 ft (396 x 274 cm).
- Area: 117 + 4 ft² (10.85 + 0.37 m²).
- Peak height: 80 in (203 cm).
- Packed size: 34.5 x 13 x 11.5 in (88 x 33 x 29 cm).
3. Northwest Territory Grand Canyon Tent
This incredibly attractive tent is a 3-room structure, very tall with the peak height of 84 in (213 cm) and freestanding. The capacity is 12 people and for this you have an area of 240 ft² (22.3 m²). So this is a huge tent and I have included it in my list of extra large family camping tents. The weight is to match, so it weighs 58.65 lb (26.6 kg).
The picture below shows why it is included here, so you see the two cabinets which are tall and you can use one to put your toilet inside. But the cabinets also come with shelving so this is a very useful storage area.
Other features include 4 huge windows, steel poles, polyester fly and walls, and polyethylene floor. You also have a bonus light which you put in the net under the ceiling and you also have a remote control included. Please follow the link for more.
4. Ozark Trail 11 Person 3 Room Instant Cabin Tent
This Ozark Trail 11 is a three-room structure of a specific type. So its main part which you see in the picture above has a removable divider and this allows you to have two rooms. But there is an extension behind which is a sort of large cabin, and you can see it in the picture below. It is big enough to call it a room. You can use this cabinet as a storage area as well, this versatility is the good side of this tent.
But as you realize from the name, this is also an instant tent, so the setup is extremely easy and fast. You also have awning configuration here, the front flap serves for this purpose; the two awning poles are included.
The area which this tent offers is 160 ft² (14.9 m²), its weight is 33 lb (15 kg), and the peak height is 76 inches (193 cm). You have two doors and 4 large windows, and the tent is very affordable.
5. Wenzel Kodiak 9 Person Tent
This Wenzel Kodiak 9 is a two-room tent with a sewn-in divider and a central zipper, this is visible in the picture below. This is a cabin style tent yet the frame is rather specific with three arches similar to what you have in tunnel tents. This is why it is not freestanding.
Obviously, it is here because of its two cabinets (closets) which you see below. They are low, the area is just around 4 square feet each, but they have a zippered door from inside and also a zippered panel plus mesh on the back. So you can use them as floor vents as well as closets for boots.
The tent’s area is 164 ft² (15.2 m²) and the peak height is 86 inches (219 cm), so it is included in my list of very tall family camping tents. The weight is 36.4 lb (16.5 kg). The frame is steel and the partial coverage fly and the walls are polyester.
