Some might argue this is technically a 2-room tent, but the third “section” (the porch area) in our opinion, serves the purpose of a third room as well as any. This 3 room camping tent is 6.8 feet high in the center, where even the tallest of people can stand upright.

The tent can be sectioned into three rooms. Simply use the room divider in the center of the main tent area to make 2 rooms, then you have the porch area at the front. The porch room is covered in mesh windows so you can sit and enjoy the view, without the bugs bothering you. 

This is an easy to assemble 3 room tent, taking an average of 20-minutes, thanks to the color-coded poles and sleeves. When packing it away you’ll easily tuck into the provided expandable storage bag. 

Comes With:

  • Welded floors.
  • WeatherTech inverted seams so water can’t get inside.
  • Rainfly with taped seams.
  • Weather-resistant coating.
  • Zipper protection cuff. 
  • Wind-proof frame and specialized guy-lines to withstand winds.

The tent has ample ventilation ports and windows, plus a mesh ceiling for a healthier airflow. Plenty of inner storage pockets and hangers for lamps.

With two room-dividers, you can split this tent into 3 rooms, or less if you prefer larger spaces. Even better, each room has its own outside entrance. There are three entry points with one in the central area, and two at each end in the sleeping areas. 

Six windows and a mesh ceiling provide ample ventilation. Stargaze through the roof area when you leave off the rain fly cover.

The tent takes about 10-minutes to assemble and can be a one-person job, so you’ll soon be comfortable inside. Should it rain, the taped fly seams will keep you dry.

A cavernous tent with a height of 6.5 feet and covering a 20m2 area, though not all of this space is on the inside. Wow, it’s like a mini house. Each of the 3 rooms has its own outside entrance.

The dividers for the bedrooms are sewn-in, giving complete privacy with zippered shutters. The main central area also has an entrance and a separate porch area.

Although it’s a huge 3 room tent, it packs down quite small at only 2.3 x 1.1 feet. That’s small enough to put on the back of a motorbike.

Because of its shape, it’s not very aerodynamic. This could mean that it might not withstand high winds very well. With a mesh ceiling and 12 meshed windows, it’s a great 3 room tent for warmer climes. Each window also has a zippered blind to cover and seal.

Plenty of inner storage compartments, plus a hook to hang a lantern in the main reception area. There’s also a built-in cable port access.

Potentially, this 3 room family tent can be constructed in 20 minutes with 2 people. The elbows for the poles are sewn into the main tent, making it easier to feed the poles into the sleeves. It erects initially from the center and then feeds out by raising each of the outer rooms. See the video in our QAs to see how to assemble this tent in minutes.

It comes with an attached floor throughout and also a fly cover with taped seams to keep out any rain.

With 4 storage pockets and a central hanger for a lamp, you can use the two-room dividers to make up to 3 rooms.

Another high tent with a 7-foot center, allowing headroom for the tallest of people. The uniqueness of this 3 room tent is that the central room divider is sewn into the tent fabric. Another divider drops down to create the third room. The two entrance doorways are in the middle, leading into the central living space.

The tent is quick to assemble with 15 shock-corded poles. Ventilation is good, as air comes up from the floor vents and goes out through the mesh designed ceiling. Even with the flysheet in place over the top, air can circulate. With 9 zippered and meshed windows in total, and the same for the 2 doorways, they also add to that ventilation. You can be sure the air will stay fresh inside this 3 room camping tent.

The bathtub floor means that rain, or morning dew, can’t get inside, so you’ll be dry when you wake up.

Whilst this 3 room tent does have an opening for a power port, it doesn’t have any storage pockets or hangers for lanterns. Nonetheless, this is a huge 3 room family tent. It’s perfect for large groups, allowing lots of space and comfort for any outdoor camping trip.

FAQs 

What Is The Best 3 Room Tent?

How much room do 3 people need in a tent?

If you’re minimizing, because you’re hiking, then you won’t need much room for sleeping. It’s estimated that the average person needs around W2.5-feet width, and at least 6ft in length.

This is the minimum of using a sleeping bag on the floor. Using these measurements as a guide, three people should be comfortable in a 3 person tent. If you’re vacationing for a week or more, and have blow-up beds, then 2 people per room are usually best.

What size is a 3 room tent?

The footprint of a 3 roomed tent should be at least 14 x 16 feet. This gives you 224 square feet, which could sleep between 7-11 people.

How long to set up a 3 room tent?

Anything from 10 minutes to half an hour. Much depends on the design. If poles remain in the sleeves, it’s an instant tent and much quicker to assemble. If not, but they’re color-coded, that also speeds up assembly. 

Have a look at this video showing how to assemble the Ozark Trail Base, that we’ve reviewed above. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is.

How do you make a 3 room tent warmer?

  • Put the fly cover in place to keep out the wind. 
  • Bathtub floors are the best as they stop drafts. 
  • Zip up the window shutters and doors once everyone is inside.
