Tents and Tarps for Canoe Camping

What makes a tent right for canoeing? Canoeing tents should be durable and lightweight, able to withstand the rigors of the trail and easy to portage. Your tent should also be able to protect you in the harshest weather you may encounter and well ventilated so you stay comfortable whether it’s scorching hot or raining for 2 weeks straight. To start your tent search, consider where you typically travel and in what season. Expedition Tents can stand up to the toughest Arctic winds, while Wilderness Tents are meant for 3-season canoe tripping. The whole family will enjoy Recreational Tents on a weekend outing down the river and camping minimalists will appreciate the ultra-lightweight protection of streamlined Shelters. Bug Tents, Shelters and Tarps provide welcome in-camp protection from bugs and the elements.
