Green Thumbs Up Logo

Summary: Favorable Reviews

Quality of the tent is recommended. It truly accommodates four people as advertised. Can set it up all by yourself in about 10 minutes. Perfect for people that have a 6 feet height. Windows were pretty huge also.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

The fabric around the door zipper was kind of tight when closing it. You need to take a look at it, especially when you are setting it up with a child. It needs to be stake it out properly for windy conditions. The tent is well ventilated though even if you closed it all, it might still give a cold feeling during night time.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Camp Creek 4 has four windows and one door and a peak center height of 7' 0 which is 20 inches bigger than the average height of the 129 different 4 person tents we have looked at. With 64 square feet of space inside, it is a tiny bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little cramped for you and, up to three other campers throughout the 3-seasons this tent is recommended for. Smaller tents like this one can generally make a really good choice for people who welcome spending loads of hours outside exploring the great outdoors.

One of the sweet things about cabin tents is, that the sides are near vertical making for a spacious interior, this makes for plenty of headroom at the sides of the tent, making it feel much larger than a dome tent, most of the time, they tend to have large floor areas, so they are great for larger groups.

Beneath you can see an account of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Camp Creek can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not need to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Tons of Headroom. With 20% more headroom than similar size tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is nice to see Alps adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. Has awnings. The awnings shelter the sides of the tent.
  5. More than one window. With 4 windows it is simple to keep the tent cool on a hot summers night.
  6. Tons of Positive Reviews The Camp Creek 4 has Tons of great Reviews
  7. Other sizes are available. Alps has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  8. Low price. It is a great deal for a 4 person cabin tent that provides this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $159.99 info_outline

CONS

  1. Vulnerable to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Camp Creek may not do well in strong winds if it is not firmly secured with the provided guy lines and stakes. Even though the tent is listed as freestanding in all but very calm conditions, one would want to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. Not roomy. With a floor area of 64 square feet, the Camp Creek 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 129 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  3. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the elements, you must keep them inside the tent.
  4. Rainfly does not totally cover the tent. The rainfly only covers the ceiling and part of the tent body from the top. Meaning it might not protect against heavy rain.
  5. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one available separately designed for the Camp Creek 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of 150D polyester oxford, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  6. A little heavy for backpacking. Even though the Camp Creek 4, looks like a small tent, it is not probably the best choice for backpacking as it weighs 20 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  7. Storage Space. Due to the size of the tent, one cannot store much stuff inside..

CONCLUSION

4.4 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.4 STARS

Alps's Camp Creek 4 tent is suitable for car camping, there are a couple of other points not noted above which, were noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Great ventilation with one door and four large windows, Straight side walls allow more room for cots and Factory-sealed fly and floor seams provide best weather protection.

With wonderful ratings, quite a few reviews and headroom of 7' and 64 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your very own modest apartment. This allows you and up to 2 other campers to spend some really enjoyable time enjoying nature. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can look at above.

If you came to this website looking for an endorsement on this particular tent, we consider, it would make for a great acquisition. In case you simply happened to arrive on this page while looking for a brand new tent having never heard of this manufacture or this model before, it is possibly a good thing to look at a few other similar tents also.

Value for money: In terms of value for your money, this tent is significantly more competitive than the standard cost of all the one hundred and fifty, four-person tents we have looked at, this alone by itself does not make it good value for money. One should also take a look at other things in detail, as we do with every tent.

When we measure the valuation of a single tent, we consider a good deal of stuff, looking for areas where the tent could exceed other similar tents and where it is not quite as good. In this case, with a total rating of 4.4 and the price details above, we can recognize that with a cost of $159.99 info_outline Alps's Camp Creek 4 is a good bargain and fabulously competitively priced in comparison with similar tents.

The ratings show that the build and capacity the tent offers were not skimped on to finish up with a price tag undoubtedly below the normal price for comparable tents. It should make a very good choice for nearly all campers looking for an appropriate three-season cabin tent to camp in, that will serve you well for years to come.
