View Full Version : Biiiiig Tent Okay?

01-22-2007, 03:19 PM
So I was reading last year's camping FAQ, and it basically said every individual was allowed a 7'x7' tent for themselves, and each additional person is alloted an additional 7'x7' space, and the more people you have the bigger your tent can be.

Is this indefinite? My friend has quite a bit 20 person tent. Would this be kosher to set up? We have quite a few people we'll be camping with...

Thanks in advance :)

though seemingly rad, sharing a tent with 20 people sounds smelly.

It has partitions to pull down to make seperate rooms...

they had the polo field set up like a grid, and they told you where to put your tent. Coordinate with your friends if you want to be in the same grid. Each grid space holds around 5 tents with some space in the centre so it sounds like your tent would work. There were some HUGE tents last year so i would bring the tent!

Yeah and there is the one person who puts up a full size TeePee so a big tent is totally allowed.

i really wanna try the big teepee thing this year... seems so much cooler (temperature-wise).

however, i fear the wrath of the wind and dust blowing in my eyes all night. oh well.

There were 7 people in the group I was with, and we had 3 tents. A big (10x17), a med (7x10), and my small (6x7). I really dont think the tent size is an issue "IF" many people are sharing it. Say there is 10 people in your group, that means that each person could take up 7x7. If that tent is 20ft by 30ft, you guys would still be in the clear since your combined space is much larger. It would only be an issue if only 2 or 3 people were in it.

we are going to be comfortable this year! Last year was miserable crawling in and out of our tent. We got a standing room tent on Amazon this year and can't wait to be able to stretch out and even sit in chairs inside the tent.9673
