These Glamping Tents Have Wilderness Luxury On Lock

Forget that four-person Coleman you've been pitching out in the wild since 1999. These expansive Morroccan-style canvas tents by Lotus Belle provide enough epic square footage and protection from the elements that you'll forget what the mere notion of "roughing-it" even means.

They're available in 13 or 16 feet spreads and come in a traditional version or Outback style, should your destination require some more rugged protection like mesh-zip windows and doors. Reinforced wall panels, and large, warm weather-abetting roof vents abound. Both will stay bone-dry in the rain and have been treated to be mold, mildew, rot, and fire-resistant, for anyone concerned with rogue s'mores.

And whether you're throwing a backyard party or bringing the tent on the road, it only takes about 45 minutes for one person to set it up. Simply unfurl it, prop up the 10 supporting poles, anchor the outer ropes, and you're glamping.
