Ozark Trail 2-person Junior Dome Tent

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I have been using this tent for a couple years now, and it's perfect for my needs. It's very small, though I have slept two people in it before. If you do this, you will both need to sleep lengthwise parallel to the door. You will be touching. By "Junior," I'm guessing they mean it is for children. At 5'3", I am probably nearing the limits of who this tent is meant for. I generally use it for just myself, which is much better. It is easy to assemble, and I'm able to erect it by myself. Set up is the typical telescopic poles through cloth loops.

You can sit up in the middle of this tent, but it's not the type of tent you will want to hang out in. It has pouches sewn onto the walls, which are handy for keeping small things such as your flashlight, bottle of water, and car keys in. With the rain fly attached, it is fairly waterproof, which I know for a fact because I have slept in it during a light rain before, and didn't have any leaks. Like most tents, it will get humid inside with the morning dew.

I would recommend using a tent pad, as the bottom of this tent is basically a tarp. You can feel every rock, bump, and twig. Make sure you thoroughly scout out the area you will be setting it up and remove any debris that you can. Level ground would be best. And if you have one, definitely use an air mattress. There are pegs to secure the tent to the ground with, though I don't always use them.

This tent folds up easily and will fit back into its carrying case with no trouble, unlike some tents that you can never fold small enough to get back into its bag after the first use. There are mesh windows and zippers for the door and window flaps. In the two plus years I've been using this tent, I have not had the zippers stick or come off of their tracks. I keep this tent in the trunk of my car, and have used it numerous times with no complaints.
