Here you have our list of the best extra large family tents for camping. All family tents in this review include features that are ideal for large-family camping trips, whatever the season. Please note that while there are many big family tents, not all of them are up to scratch. This review is designed to highlight the top largest family camping tents. Without further ado, let’s dive in!
1. Vango Capri 600XL Tent
If you want a large 6-person family tent, the Vango Capri 600XL may be the one for you. At 194 ft² (18 m²), this tent is a lot more spacious than you may first think. The tent has a large living room plus two sleeping areas, making it ideal for families. The tent also features a covered porch area that measures 41 ft² (3.8 m²).
Perhaps the most positive feature of this tent is the Air Beam technology, meaning all poles are inflatable, other than the porch pole.
This is also an extra large dark rest tent, which means the sleeping rooms utilise dark rest technology that reduces glare.
2. Bushnell Shield Series 12 Person Instant Cabin Tent
This Bushnell Shield Series is an extra large 12-person tent. Measuring 18 x 11, this is the largest tent from the Bushnell Shield Series. The tent covers a total area of 198 ft² (18.4 m²), meaning this tent more than deserves its place in this review.
The tent features 3 rooms built from a solid steel structure. It is a cabin style tent with 8 large windows and multiple storage options. As this tent measures 203cm tall, we would recommend this tent for summer camping when winds aren’t too crazy.
As an instant family tent, the Shield can be erected in just one minute – making it perfect for those who hate setting up and packing away. You can view our top instant tents too.
3. Vango Odyssey Air 800 Tent
The Vango Odyssey Air 800 is a large inflatable family camping tent, which means all poles are inflatable air beams. The tent is designed for 8 people and has a total floor area of 200 ft² (18.59 m²). In regards to rooms, you’ll enjoy the large living room, plus 4 sleeping rooms.
Even better, this is a dark rest family tent, meaning the sleeping area is fitted with material that reduces glare and light. The tent also has an impressive waterproof rating of 4000 mm. You will also find it in our best inflatable tent page.
4. Ozark Trail 12-Person Base Camp Tent with Light
With a total area of 201 ft² (18.7 m²), this is one of the largest family tents in the review. But that’s not all; the Ozark Trail is one of the tallest at 92 inches (234 cm).
Unlike some other tents, the Trail has a single layer design with poles fitted on the outside of the material. These 10 poles are crafted from lightweight fibreglass and structured in a way that allows for increased sturdiness.
The large 12-person tent has 2 doors and 8 windows – all of which have mesh and zippered panels.
