Ideal for car camping as the tent is quite heavy. The Doors flap swings inwards bringing in any moisture on the outside. Minor leaks reported during very heavy storms. On the small side for six people.

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Camp Creek 6 has six windows and two doors and a maximum center height of 7' 0 which is a little bit more than the average height of the 106 various 6 person tents we have looked at. With 120 square feet of space inside, it is considerably larger than some other 6-person tents, and it easily offers enough room for you and, up to five other campers during the whole of the 3-seasons this tent is approved for. Larger tents similar to this one are a really good choice for people who like having plenty of space inside their tent.

One of the sweet things about cabin tents is, that the walls of the tent are basically vertical creating a sizeable interior, this makes for much more 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. Lot’s of cabin tents have more than just one room to stay in, just like the Alps Camp Creek two-room tent

Beneath you can browse a list of the tent's pros and cons.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Camp Creek can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have 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. Plenty of space. With a center height of 84 inches (more than 6 feet) and a floor area of 120 square feet, the Camp Creek gives you a lot of space. Most adults can stand inside the tent without ducking their heads.
  3. Plenty of Headroom. With 8% more headroom than similar size tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  4. Has Gear Loft. It is good to see Alps adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  5. Has awnings. The awnings protect the walls of the tent.
  6. More than one room. The Camp Creek is designed with two rooms, allowing for more privacy. Ideal for a large family and groups who do not want to be all sleeping together.
  7. Removable divider. For those who want to maximize all of the available space that the Camp Creek provides, the divider can be detached to have one large room for everyone to share.
  8. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is easier to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  9. More than one window. With 6 openings it is simple to keep the tent cooler on a hot summers night.
  10. Available in other sizes. Alps has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Sensitive 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. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the elements, you need store them inside the tent.
  3. Rainfly does not totally cover the tent body. The rainfly only covers the ceiling and part of the tent body from the top. Meaning it might not protect against heavy downpours.
  4. Uses Fiberglass poles. Even though the poles are comprised of fiberglass & steel uprights for extra strength. Using even some fiberglass with a big tent like the Camp Creek 6 could possibly lead to problems, if there were to be extreemly windy conditions.
  5. Poor Heat Retention. The general design of the Alps's Camp Creeks interior is designed to easily let air in and out. Therefore, it cannot keep heat inside, making it unsuitable for use in winter.
  6. Heavy. Even though heavy is not in it self a negative, it is worth noting that the Camp Creek 6, weighs 31 pounds and has a packed size of 11 x 27 inches. obviously it is designed for camping with a car and would not be super easy to set up on your own.
  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

3.6 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.6 STARS

Alps's Camp Creek 6 tent is suitable for car camping, there are a couple of other things not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while researching the model: Two large door allow easy entry into either room individually, Straight side walls allow more room for cots and Factory-sealed fly and floor seams provide best weather protection.

With nice ratings, a decent amount of reviews and a center height of 7' and 120 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your own little residence. This will allow you together with 5 other campers to enjoy some delightful time exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can look at above.

If you found this website looking for suggestions about this actual tent, we consider, it would make for an ok purchase. In case you just happened to land on this page while looking for a brand new tent having never heard of this brand or this tent previously, it is perhaps a good idea to look at some more comparable tents.

Value for money: As far as value for your dollar, this tent is tad bit more competitive than the average cost of all the one hundred and seven, six-person tents we have studied, this alone does not make it good value for money. One should also take a look at other things in-depth, as we do for each tent.

When we determine the valuation of a tent, we consider tons of conditions, looking for points where the tent could beat other very similar tents and where it is coming up short. In this case, with an overall score of 3.6 and the price conclusions above, It is simple to notice that with a ticket price of $349.49 info_outline Alps's Camp Creek 6 is a good deal and reasonably priced when compared with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and size the tent gives you could have been slightly compromised to obtain a price well below the normal price for comparable tents. It could make a decent choice for nearly all campers searching for a comfy three-season cabin tent to go camping in, that should serve you well.
