Camping With Kids? How About Pop Up Tents

My son’s birthday is coming up. And for the past six months he’s been bugging me to go camping. We have one tiny tent that holds two people, but now that there are four of us it is time to find a new one.

One prerequisite he had was that it would be small for him and his brother or father, not a family sized tent. Which works just fine for me since I’m not a huge camper and would use it as an excuse that there isn’t enough room for me and find a camping site that has cabins as well. (But don’t tell him that.)

After doing a lot of research I found a really fun option. Pop Up Tents!

I know, I might be out of the camping loop since it’s not my thing, but what an incredibly cool idea.

The one we ended up getting was the Rightline Gear Pop Up Tent.
