At the very top of your base camp priority list is selecting your camping tent. The Guide Life Bunk House line of family tents, in both 4-person and 6-person models, are spacious and provide true full headroom, and include a tremendous number of features that most manufacturers sell separately. They are cavernous, and their integrated vestibule/front porch means you’ll have plenty of room to stretch out, while 12-pocket, integrated, removable storage systems keep additional gear and clothing stashed and out of the way. Floor-to-ceiling water resistance includes a full rainfly, taped seams, and zippered storm flaps. The freestanding Bunk House (only the vestibule needs to be staked) is easy to set up and stores simply into a 27 by 15-inch stuff sack.
