Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

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 Two Room is Alps Mountaineering's largest tent, and it has six windows and two doors and a peak center height of 7' 0, which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 107 various 6 person tents we have examined 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 all through the 3-seasons, this tent is recommended for use in, larger tents like this one can make a really nice choice for campers who love having lots of room inside.

One of the benefits of cabin tents is, that the sides of the tent are near vertical making for a generous interior, this makes for plenty of headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much bigger than other types of tents, most of the time, they tend to have large floor areas, so they are great for larger groups. Normally cabin tents are used by people going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them well suited to colder nights. Cabin tents often have more than a single room, like the Alps Mountaineering Camp Creek two-room tent

Below you can find a list of the tent's pros and cons.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Camp Creek Two Room 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. 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 campers can stand inside the tent without ducking their heads.
  3. Lots of Headroom. With 8% more headroom than similar-sized tents, one can easily count this as a plus.
  4. Internal storage. It is nice to see Alps Mountaineering has added a gear loft and pockets in the interior to store some of your things.
  5. Has awnings. The awnings shelter the sides of the tent.
  6. More than one room. The Camp Creek is designed with two rooms, allowing for extra privacy. Perfect 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 removed to have one large room for everyone to share.
  8. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  9. More than one window. With 6 windows it is simple to keep the tent ventilated on a hot summers night.
  10. Other sizes are available. Alps Mountaineering has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  11. Low price. It is a great buy for a 6 person cabin tent providing this much space. Not many tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $261.73

CONS

  1. Susceptible 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. No Vestibules. If you want to keep your dirty shoes, clothes, and backpacks protected from the rain etc, you need keep 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 may not protect against heavy rain.
  4. Uses Fiberglass poles. Even though the poles are comprised of fiberglass & steel uprights for extra strength. Using even some fiberglass with a large 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 Mountaineering'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 cold weather.
  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 vehicle 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 better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.

CONCLUSION

3.7 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 3.7 STARS

Alps Mountaineering's Camp Creek 6 Two Room tent is great for car camping. There are a couple of other things not already mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing 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 peak height of 7' and 120 square feet of space to play with, this tent is like your very own miniature residence. It enables you together with 5 other people to enjoy some delightful time in the outdoors together. We found a decent amount of positive points about the tent that you can read through above.

If you came to this page looking for an endorsement on this specific tent, we think, it would make for a decent purchase. In case you simply happened to land on this page while looking for a brand new tent having not heard of this manufacture or this model before, it is perhaps a good idea to check out some other similar tents also.

Value for money: In so much as value for your dollar, this tent is a cheaper than the average cost of all the one hundred and eight, six-person tents we have looked at, all alone this does not make it remarkable value for money. One should also look at other factors in-depth, as we do for every tent.

When we measure the ratings of a single tent, we regard a lot of stuff, searching for points where the tent could beat out other comparable tents and where it is lacking. On this occasion, with an overall score of 3.8 and the price info above, It is simple to observe that with a ticket price of $261.73 The Camp Creek 6 Two Room is a great bargain and fabulously priced when compared with similar tents.

Its ratings show that the quality and dimensions the tent gives you may have been lightly skimped on to obtain a price tag unquestionably beneath the normal price for similar tents. It is also worth noting it is reduced by 8% from the manufactures suggested price. It could make a decent choice for most people searching for an adequate three-season cabin tent to go camping with, that will serve you well.
