The Best Tall Tents You Can Stand Up In

Being able to stand up in your tent while camping really is a luxury. With a more traditional backpacking tent or even some car camping tents, you don’t have enough space to stand fully, which can be a (literal) pain in the neck.

With these tents, that won’t be a problem unless you’re in the height range of the average NBA player. Even then, there’s still almost certainly a tent on this list that will be tall enough for you to stand upright in, making changing clothes and other tasks a whole lot easier, especially for tall people.

Coleman Elite WeatherMaster 6 Screened Dome Tent

Check Price

This Coleman Elite WeatherMaster tent has enough living space for two queen-sized air mattresses or six sleeping bags, and enough headroom for a 6’ 8” person to stand upright. 

Oh, and you won’t be bumping your head on a lantern in the middle of the night either thanks to the built-in LED lighting system to illuminate the interior space.

Setup is easy, and while this isn’t quite an instant tent/pop up tent, the hollow-core fiberglass poles are lighter than aluminum poles and keep your setup and takedown times to just a few minutes. 

You also get gear loft hooks and a plethora of storage pockets to keep all of your stuff well-organized no matter how many campers you have with you

Finally, the patented water-resistant WeatherTec rainfly system offers great weather protection and make this a great family tent for riding out those sudden afternoon thunderstorms that bring heavy rain in the summer season. 

And when the weather is nice you can relax in the roomy screened porch that has a massive 54 square feet of floor space.

Wenzel Kodiak 9 Person Tent

Check Price

The Wenzel Kodiak is a large, two-room family cabin tent that has a peak height of over seven feet! The steel frame uses hub connections with a pin-and-ring system for fast setup and a secure structure.

You can sleep up to nine people in here thanks to the large 14’x14’ footprint, and you can divide them up thanks to the zippered divider, making this a great option for families with children or pets.

Best of all, the vertical walls and extra-tall center pole mean that just about everyone on the planet will be able to walk around in this tent comfortably without having to stoop over.

Inside you’ll be safe from the rain thanks to the full-coverage fly and weatherproof welded seams. You’ll also have enough room for two queen-sized airbeds, making this one of the best camping tents out there for people who like that glamping lifestyle. 

Backpackers and mountain climbers you can use this as a base camp we guess? Even with a good carry bag, these tents are a little heavy for that kind of thing.

Browning Camping Big Horn 8-Person Tent

Check Price

The Big Horn 8-Person Tent by Browning is another cabin-style tent that has a huge amount of interior space. This one is actually also available in a 5 person style, but we like the two-room option with the room divider more because of the size of the tent. 

In general, taller people are more comfortable in a large tent than in a smaller tent. And this is a very, very large tent. The height is 7’4” at its tallest point so you should have plenty of room to stand upright in there.

The mix of fiberglass and steel tent poles is a little unusual but coupled with the extra-strong guylines, this design makes the tent more capable in high winds than some of the similar Ozark Trail and Kelty options.

Finally, while there isn’t a screen room or awning, the large D-shaped windows offer excellent air circulation, making this one of our top picks for anyone who wants a comfy camping experience in the warmer summer months. 

HIKERGARDEN 6-Person Camping Tent

Check Price

This HIKERGARDEN 6-person tent is ideal for family camping. The roomy interior has enough space for two queen air mattresses so most families won’t need a second tent. The center is also 6’4” tall so most people will have ample space to stand all the way up without brushing the roof.

The rain-proof fly sets up quickly and keeps the water while the four large windows and mesh door keep the air moving in the summertime and keeps condensation from forming at night as well.

You also get a more traditional setup with this one, which takes a little longer than a pop-up style tent, but it means you get a more robust tent that’s better suited to handle strong winds. It still only takes about 5 minutes to set it up once you know how to do it. 

ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 6-Person Tent

Check Price

Lastly, we have the ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 6-Person tent. The folks at ALPS Mountaineering are known for their quality camping gear, and this tent is no exception.

With a full 100 square feet of floor space and a peak height of 7 feet, you should have plenty of room for extended trips, or to bring the whole family along for the journey. The waterproof fly and extra-strong tent poles are incredibly robust and setup in just a few minutes.

The fly also forms large awnings over the front door and rear window, allowing you to sit and enjoy the view while still remaining protected from the elements.

You also get some of the best gear storage options around with a fully-equipped mesh storage section as well as hooks to hang a gear loft.

Final Thoughts

Standing up may feel like a luxury in most tents, but not in these. If you’re looking for a high-quality family camping tent that doesn’t require you to hunch over, these are the best tents for you. 

Easy setup combined with spacious headroom makes all of these tents great options for all your future camping trips. We would be happy to see any of these tents in our campsite and they each make a worthy addition to anyone’s camping gear.
