Summary: Favorable Reviews

The instructions to set up the tent is direct to the point. It is pretty roomy that it even fit a queen size mattress, two medium-large dogs, and some of the gears. Setting it up can be done by one person only. Even a 6-foot person can stand inside without having any problems.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

It took about 15 minutes to set it up by one person. Instructions are a bit short, and directions are not detailed. However, it may all seems pretty self-explanatory once you do it already. A 6-foot guy and up should set it up easily it might be difficult for people under 6 foot.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Camp Creek 6 has four windows and one door and a maximum center height of 7' 0 which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 106 different 6 person tents we have studied. With 100 square feet of space inside, it is a little bit smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it could be a little cramped for you and, up to five other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is approved for. Larger tents similar to this one can generally make a fantastic choice for campers who love having heaps of space inside their tent for sleeping and hanging out.

One of the awesome things about cabin tents is, that the walls of the tent are basically vertical making for a spacious interior, this makes for much more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much larger than a dome tent, also, they tend to have wider floor areas, so they are great for families.

Underneath you can check out an account of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

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 8% more headroom than similar-sized 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 protect the walls of the tent.
  5. More than one window. With 4 openings it is easier to keep the tent cool on a hot summers night.
  6. Other sizes are available. Alps has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  7. Low price. It is a great deal for a 6 person cabin tent providing this much space. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $181.99 info_outline

CONS

  1. Vulnerable to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Camp Creek may not do best 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 spacious. With a floor area of 100 square feet, the Camp Creek 6 is smaller than quite a lot of the 106 other 6 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Only one room. The Camp Creek is suggested for 6 people, some other tents of a similar size have more than one room allowing for a little more privacy.
  4. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the elements, you will have to store them inside the tent.
  5. Rainfly does not wholly cover the tent. The rainfly only covers the ceiling and part of the tent body from the top. Meaning it may not protect against heavy rain.
  6. Fiberglass poles. Poles made of fiberglass help to keep the price down, they do though tend to be not as strong. This is yet another reason to only use the Camp Creek in decent weather.
  7. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately specifically for the Camp Creek 6 footprint Even though the floor may be made of 150D polyester oxford, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.

CONCLUSION

4.5 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.5 STARS

Alps's Camp Creek 6 tent is good for car camping. There are a couple of other things not mentioned above which, we found 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 great ratings, lots of reviews and a peak height of 7' and 100 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your own modest house. It will enable you and up to 4 other friends to share some delightful time camping together. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this website looking for an endorsement on this actual tent, we think, it would make for a very good purchase. If you simply happened to land on this page while browsing for a brand new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this tent previously, it is possibly a good thing to look at some more comparable tents.

Value for money: When considering value for your dollar, this tent is a lot cheaper than the usual price of all the one hundred and seven, six-person tents we have taken a look at, this alone does not make it awesome value for money. We also need to think about other things in-depth, as we do for every tent.

When we determine the score of an individual tent, we reflect upon tons of conditions, looking for points where the tent could outdo other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. On this occasion, with an overall rating of 4.5 and the price conclusions above, we can spot that with a ticket price of $181.99 info_outline Alps's Camp Creek 6 is a good bargain and astonishingly cheap when compared with comparable tents.

The overall score shows that the build and dimensions the tent provides were not skimped on to get a price unquestionably beneath the average price for similar tents. It is also worth thinking about the fact that it is discounted by 27% from the manufactures MSRP. It should make an excellent choice for most campers searching for an appropriate three-season cabin tent to camp in, that will serve you well for years to come.
