Here you have a list of 30 very tall tents for camping all above 215 cm (84.6 in) in various styles and for various use from 1 to 4 seasons. The list includes the dome, tunnel, tipi, and cabin tents.
What is in the list
Regarding the type
- When you think about tall tents, you would expect first to see cabin tents, so indeed some of the tents here are in this category.
- But you will be surprised to know that the tallest tent here (as of the moment of writing this text) is, in fact, a dome tent. Now, this must be something extraordinary, right? I can tell you it is indeed, you will see below.
- There are also tunnel tents here. These are structures that are tall almost all the way along their main axes, so they are very livable and pleasant. You might think that nothing can beat the mentioned cabin style tents when it comes to livability, but wait to see some of the tunnel tents below.
- But there are also circular canvas tents here, and those are the highest.
- There are tipi tents as well, those are tall structure by their nature.
Regarding the seasons & climate
- Some of the tents are for summer camping only, or maximum 2 seasons. Those are mainly cabin tents. The reason is that they are with huge windows and doors, with minimal fly, etc. So they are great for a warm climate and they provide an excellent ventilation, but such structures do not preserve the warmth, and they are also not for strong rains and winds.
- On the other hand, the tunnel tents here are with solid windows, without mesh, with a great waterproof rating, etc. So they are for wet areas and also for a cooler climate. You can also use them in areas with lots of dust and sand in the air, they are fully enclosed and offer a full protection.
- There are examples of true winter tents as well. You will see the best of the best below.
Regarding the technology
- Some of the tents are with air beams.
- Most of them are with classic poles, and those can be aluminum or fiberglass.
- Some of the tents are with the waterproof rating among the highest on the market in general.
- There are canvas tents here as well.
My list of the best tall camping tents
The tents in the list are ordered by the height from lower to higher.
The list includes the tents with a height of 215 cm or higher. So why this limit? There are no particular reasons except that this is a rather exclusive group. For example, there are many tents in the range 200 – 213 cm, but those above 215 cm are rare. But you will see below, I give also a separate list with the tents in the height range 210 – 213 cm. All tents mentioned here are presented in detail in my separate reviews, so you can follow the links to read more.
1. Coleman Air Valdes 600 XL Tent

The tent is with the dark rest design so it blocks 99% of the daylight. You have also an impressive waterproof rating of 4500 mm.

4. Outwell Clarkston 6A Tent
The Clarkston 6A is 215 cm tall, so it is here with good reasons. This is also a very large tent with 4 rooms and 290 ft² (27 m²). One more unusual feature here is that this tent comes with air beams instead of classic poles. You have a pump included.
The sleeping zone is a tent within the tent and with dark rest features. You have 8 PVC windows and they are all tinted, plus three windows of the same type on the 3 entry doors. They all have shutters for privacy, so this is a very pleasant and livable construction.
The waterproof rating is 4000 mm for the shell and 10000 mm for the floor. So you realize that this is a very reliable tent for a 3-season use.
The tent is fully enclosed so it is very suitable for camping in cool weather and with a lot of rain. Please read more in my full review.
5. Arctic Oven Tent
Here you have a true winter tent designed to work with a wood stove. Everything is designed for extreme conditions. You have a full coverage fly and the inner tent without mesh but built from a unique Vapex fabric.
The tent is for 6 people and it offers 152 ft² (14.1 m²) of the inner area plus 46 ft² (4.3 m²) under the vestibule. The peak height is 7’2” (218 cm). Price-wise, this is one of the most expensive tents here in the site. Please follow the link to read more.
6. CORE 10 Person Straight Wall Cabin Tent
This is a freestanding tall structure with the peak height of 86 in (218 cm). When you combine this with its cabin style design with straight walls and large windows, you realize how pleasant this tent is.
The tent offers 140 ft² (13 m²) of the floor area which is organized in two units with a removable divider. So clearly this is not enough space for ten people, better downgrade it by half and you will have a great camping tool. The design is for summer camping and not for a cool environment. Please follow the link for more.
7. CORE 12 Person Extra Large Straight Wall Cabin Tent 16 x 11
This is a new tent on the market they launched for the season 2019, and it is a bit similar to its smaller cousin shown above. So this is a huge 16 x 11 ft cabin tent and very tall, this is why it is in the list here. The peak height is 86 inches (218 cm).
This is a 2-room freestanding construction with huge windows on all sides, 9 to be precise, and with 2 doors. It comes with an E-cable port. It is well ventilated, you have lots of mesh around and two floor vents as well.
The area is 176 ft² (16.4 m²), and the weight is 40 lb (18.14 kg). The price is very reasonable, please follow the link to read more.
8. Eureka Desert Canyon 6 Tent
The Desert Canyon 6 is a new item on the market. As you realize from the name, the capacity is relatively small, but the structure is very tall, so the peak height is 86 in (218 cm).
The inner area is quite modest for the declared capacity, only 100 ft² (9.3 m²), so it is best to downgrade this drastically to 2-3 people only. The fly is partial coverage and the tent is incredibly tall, so it is best to use it for summer camping in a quiet area without much wind.
9. Timber Ridge 8-Man Log Cabin Tent
This Log Cabin tent is a framed design which means that the frame is set up separately and it is fully self-supporting, and then the tent is attached to it.
It is here in the list because of its exceptional height of 86 inches (218 cm). This is a single-room structure with 108 ft² (10 m²) plus a porch of 48 ft² (4.4 m²) which you see in the picture. The porch is not fully protected from elements but you have a mesh around so you are safe from flying insects.
The fly is minimal and with 800 mm waterproof rating. You have one entry door and 4 large windows with mesh and panels. This is a heavy tent with its 47 lb (21.3 kg) of weight, but the carry bag is with two wheels so you can move it easily to short distances.
10. Wenzel Kodiak 9 Person Tent
This Kodiak 9 is a cabin style of a particular type with three sets of poles that make a sort of loops similar to tunnel tents. So this is not a freestanding tent. Obviously, it is here because of its great height, so this is a pleasant tent with nice views around as you realize from the picture.
One particular feature which sets it apart from many tents here is its two cabinets on the back. So these are storage areas for boots and they also can serve as floor vents.
This is a 2-room structure with sewn-in room divider with a central zipper. The area is 164 ft² (15.2 m²) and the official capacity is 9 people. It weighs 36.4 lb (16.5 kg). Please follow the link for more.

With its peak height of 220 cm (86.6 in), this Edmonds 5A tent deserves to be here in the list of these tall giants. It also offers no less than 21 m² (226 ft²) yet its declared capacity is only 5 people. So it can accommodate far more people, I would say 8 – 9 easily.
This is also a tent with air-beam technology, without classic poles. It comes with PVC tinted windows, three entry doors and all with mesh and panels, and you have 4-rooms here and these include 2 sleeping rooms, a large living room, plus a fully enclosed front room with a removable floor.

12. Outwell Vermont XLP Premium 7 Person Tent
The Vermont XLP 7 person tent is with all good reasons here in the list. This is a very tall tent with its 86.6 inches (220 cm). But such a height is supported with very strong steel poles and you have them 10 on the sides and 5 on the roof. So you will not find many stronger structures on the market.
The area is 371 ft² (34.48 m²) and it is organized in 5 rooms. The tent is very heavy and the total weight is 125.5 lb (56.8 kg). Note that this is in two separate packages for an easier handling.

The waterproof rating is huge, 6000 mm for the shell tent and 10000 mm for the floor. It comes with many great features like a built-in wardrobe, around 20 storage pockets, and several cable entry points. You also have a thermo-reflective coating and a dark rest design. Please follow the link to read more.
13. Skandika Weatherproof Tonsberg Unisex Outdoor Dome Tent
With its 86.6 inches (220 cm) of the peak height, this Tonsberg tent surely deserved to be here in the list. Apart from such a height, this is also a very generous design for 5 people, it offers no less than 135.6 ft² (12.6 m²) of the floor area.
Note that I use the name as it is used by the manufacturer and you see the word dome in the title, but in fact, this is a cabin-style tent with straight walls and many doors and windows.
This is a 3-room structure with a large living area and two sleeping units, with 3 entry doors, 2 inner doors, and a pleasant awning, so I have included it in my list of 3-room tents.
The weight is 33.07 lb (15 kg), so it is a bit heavy but this is a big and tall tent with 8 steel poles and several fiberglass poles, and those are all heavy materials. The floor is fully sewn-in and the waterproof rating is 4000 mm for the fly and 2000 mm for the rest.
14. Browning Camping Big Horn 8 Tent
The Big Horn 8 is in the list here because of its height, so this is an impressive structure with 87 inches (221 cm) at the peak. This is also a cabin style tent which means that the volume is huge, so the structure is very livable and pleasant.
The tent is with two doors and a removable divider. Each of the doors has its own entrance. The total area is 150 ft² (13.9 m²). As you realize from the picture, the tent is with a partial coverage fly, so I would use it for summer camping only, and at places without much wind. More in my full review.
15. Chinook Titan Lodge Aluminum Tent – 8 Person
This Chinook Titan Lodge is here because of its exceptional height of 88 inches (224 cm) which is not so frequent in dome style tents. But it has many other great features. The declared capacity is 8 people and it offers 140 ft² (13 m²) of the inner floor area, and as you realize from the picture, it is with a full coverage fly so I have included it also in my list of tents with full fly.

The inner area is 192 ft² (17.8 m²) but you also have a huge porch with three doors which adds roughly 67 ft² (6.25 m²) of the area, so the total protected area is around 259 ft² (24 m²). Please read more in my full review.

This tent is here for all good reasons, as you realize from the picture this is a cabin style tent and particularly tall with 90 inches (229 cm) peak height. This is also a canvas tent except for the floor which is synthetic. Ther tent is designed for all seasons and for all climates, so what you have here is a true 4-season tent.
As typical for most (but not all) canvas tents, this tent is not freestanding so you have to stake it down properly. After that, it becomes self-supporting with its 6 telescopic steel poles. You also have two extra poles which you use for an awning configuration shown in the picture above. The tent has 2 doors which are with windows, and you still have 4 separate windows. All the openings are with mesh and with canvas.

19. Trek Tents 246C Cotton Canvas Cabin Tent

The declared capacity is 9 people but the floor area is not so big, you have 140 ft² (13 m²) and you have one single room. The poles are thick steel so this structure is able to withstand a lot of wind pressure in spite of such a height.
The tent is with 3 large windows and you have a double layer structure here, with mesh and canvas panels to preserve the warmth when needed. This is a tent for all seasons and climates.
This is a heavy structure with 64 lb (29 kg), and it is also bulky when packed, you have a bundle of 42 x 14 x 14 inches (107 x 36 x 36 cm). It is also rather expensive, please follow the link for more.
20. Wenzel Shenanigan 5 Person Teepee Camping Tent
This Shenanigan 5 Teepee is modest in the area with its 86 ft² (8 m²), but it is very tall with its peak height of 90 inches (229 cm). This is a beautiful summer camping structure with a single central pole and one door. But it has three great windows with mesh and zippered panels visible in the picture above.
The tent is a single layer type and the floor is fully sealed thick polyethylene with welded seams. The tent is nicely ventilated with 2 low and 3 high vents. The pole is steel and this is a telescopic design. The weight of this tent is 10.75 lb (4.88 kg), so this is light enough even to be carried on shorter hiking excursions.
21. Ozark Trail 12-Person Base Camp Tent with Light
This Ozark Trail tent is here because of its height which is remarkable 92 inches (234 cm). But this is also currently the largest dome-style tent on the market. So you have a structure which is almost exactly a hemisphere with the diameter is 16 ft (488 cm). The total area is 201 ft² (18.7 m²). As you realize I had plenty of reasons to include it also in my list of extra large family camping tents.
The tent is a single layer design and the poles are added from outside. You have two doors and eight windows, all of them are with mesh and zippered panels. As the name tells you, this is also a tent with an integrated light system. So I have included it in my list of lighted tents.
There are 10 fiberglass poles that create the impressive dome which you see in the picture. The poles have many cross points so the structure is very stable and strong. But they do not provide info about waterproof rating and this is a tent for summer camping, it is best to avoid areas with lots of rain.
22. Tahoe Gear Carson 14 Person Tent
This Carson 14 tent is unusually tall for a cabin style tent, with the peak height of 94 inches (239 cm). It offers 182 ft² (17 m²) of the floored area in its three rooms, but it also has a screen room so the total area is 276 ft² (25.8 m²). The screen room is not floored and you can use it for sitting and cooking. Note that the bigger part of the screen room is protected from the rain because of the fly, although it has no panels on the sides. This is why I have added it to my list with 4-room tents.
The two side rooms are square and the central room is pentagon in shape. They all are with real walls in between, but they are connected with huge doors. They all also have huge doors to the screen room.
It is worth mentioning its 6 huge windows with mesh and zippered panels, so the whole structure is very pleasant and nicely organized. Please follow the link to read more.

It has a floor zipper which you can unzip and roll the floor party to the side when you put a stove inside.
The floor as a whole is zipped to the tent, and it creates a bathtub structure. This means you can unzip it and use the tent as a canopy only. The material is breathable but you also have 3 floor vents that are so large that they look like windows and they are with mesh and canvas. You also have 2 top vents with an integrated pulley system so you can open and close them from inside. Please follow the link for more.

This is what some call a frame tent which means that the frame sets up completely separately and it is also fully freestanding and incredibly strong. The tent is added separately as well as the fly and the floor.
This is a very heavy tent that comes in several separate packages, so the weight is 218 lb (99 kg). You have a flapjack included so the tent is ready for a wood stove and obviously it is very suitable for a 4-season use. I have included it in my list of cold weather tents for camping.

The floor is synthetic. The size is 16 feet in diameter, so this gives around 200 ft² (18.6 m²). The official capacity is 8 – 12 people. The tent is heavy, 74 lb (33.6 kg). Please follow the link for more.
28. Tahoe Gear Bighorn XL 12-Person Teepee Tent

The structure is with a sewn-in floor so you have a full protection from the ground. This is a modern teepee so you have one central pole and therefore the structure is not freestanding. One person can easily set this tent up in under 15 minutes.

This tent is in such a position in the list because of its height which is 125 inches (318 cm) in the central area.
