I love this tent. I hate that someone decided to steal a bag off my porch that contained the hub.

I have had a Ozark Trails pup tent for close to 20 years.  Never had any problems with it but as I age, I no longer want to crawl in and out of the tent.  Bought this tent because I could walk in and out of it. 

Big mistake!  Didn't get a chance to set it up before we went camping.  It sets up easily but the quality if very poor.  One of the stake loops is coming unsewn, the door zipper is not sewn in right and has two spots where the thread is loose, it came with a shelf but the shelf only had three straps on it and one of those came off before I got it put back in the bag. 

The wind started blowing and although the tent poles handled the wind, it was so noisy that there was no way you could sleep. Also, the screened wall had a flaw in it allowing larger insects into the tent.  We ended up taking down camp and driving home. 

I would not recommend this tent to anyone.

I have to agree with all reviews posted - 2nd time out poles (main support) and one of the rain-fly broke.  Self repaired. 

Third and fourth times - main pole broke both times. Fourth time needed to use duct tape to repair and hold tent up - luckily no wind.  

I have been searchong for replace ment poles and it is difficult to find. Tent design is good - POLES ARE BAD!

I bought this tent last fall from Walmart and the first time I used it I loved it. Then when I was airing it out after camping I went outside to discover the main pole had snapped in half. It wasn't breezy, so I figured it must have been a freak accident. I still had my receipt, so I returned it to Walmart and exchanged it for a new one thinking this was just an unfortunate incident.

Now last night I got the tent out again to get it ready for this weekend and the same thing happened again! The main tent pole broke again!!! I went on to walmart.com to look for a different tent and found mine with over 20 bad reviews on it and how the cheap tent poles consistently break.

I went back to Walmart and explained the situation and they told me that I would have to contact the manufacturer. DO NOT BUY THIS TENT FROM WALMART!

I bought the tent to take my wife camping with friends the first time we wnt alone for 1 night and setting it up was fast and easy. no problems, even breaking camp next morning went smoothly. The second trip we went with friends and I had boasted how great my tent was especially since they were in a camper (not camping at all in my opinion). We went for 3 nights and the 3rd night 1 of the two main poles snapped on the top tearing through the covering. I took it back and spent an additional 26 dollars buying a coleman 31 x 11 hopefully this one will last.

I put the tent up in the backyard so that we could check it out before camping. There was no wind and nothing around to damage it. One of the main tent poles broke within one hour of having it up!!! It put a hole in the top. I have never had this problem in all the years that I have set up tents, and that has been many times in the last 44 years!

I like the style and the tent looked nice for the hour it was up! I can't believe that the poles broke so easily with no wind or any rain to damage it. What would have happened had we gone camping with the teenagers in there? I can't imagine what kind of damage there would have been had we actually used it to camp. Sorry but it really is not worth the money or time.

I purchased this tent to replace one that I bought in April for my cub scout. The first one worked two times and I thought my boys must have damaged the tent — broken poles.

I called Ozark and explained what I thought my boys did. They were no help. They said that they have replacement poles and the cost would be $34 plus shipping.

I explained for the same price I could buy another tent for my cub scout at that price and there reply was (yes you could) and she said that there was nothing they could do. So I called Walmart talked to them and they offered to replace it.

So after reading other reviews of this tent. I'm going to take it back and look somewhere else.

I liked the tent. It set up nice with little help. It DID NOT STAND UP TO THE NORMAL WIND AT THE LAKE.

I now have a broken pole and a hole in the tent. I have camped there all my life and have never had that problem. so for that reason I do not like the tent.

It was the 2nd time of use and I am not happy with a tent that can not stand up to the normal wind that comes with a lake. In the past I have been at other lakes that has had a lot more wind then what this tent was not able to take.

We've had this exact tent model for at least 6 years and we love it! I'm actually looking for another one exactly like this one!

We've camped in rugged rocky mountain terrain in heavy storm winds, rain, even snow and it not only held up, but we were the most comfortable in the group of tents there.

The only reason we're looking for a new one is because we ripped our fly (our own fault).

If this is the same tent we purchased 6 years ago, it's great and really easy to put up!

I just purchased this tent less than a week ago from Walmart to take a few days off to go fishing. I have set up several tents over my 50 plus years camping and this is the first time that I have ever purchased anything so rotten.

The support poles just snap as you try to stick them together. I had to tie the tent up to the picnic table and my boat in order to sleep tonight.

I will have to move to the lodge or cut my trip short if there isn't a vacancy at the lodge tomorrow.
What a disappointment and your name is on the outside for everyone to see.

Too bad I was out in a campground in South Dakota with others around to assist me with lodging the remainder of MY 10 days camping. Shame a new tent and I had to sleep in someone's trailer 9 out of the 10 of them... Despicable.

Weight: Non specified poundage of crap

Having purchased a smaller Ozark some twenty years ago without incident, I felt a need to purchase a larger tent.

Trusting that Ozark provided a fairly good quality tent for an economical price, I purchased the 13 X 10 Pentagonal Dome Tent and immediately set up my old tent and the new one for seam sealing in the yard.

Upon closer examination of the newer tent I observed a dramatic compromise in the material and the quality of this tent, compared to my older Ozark. Thinking that the lighter fabric used was due to technological advancements, I dismissed the notion that it was an inferior tent.

When I began to put in the stakes I observed that even the stakes were inferior compared to my older stakes. The stakes that were provided were half the diameter of the stakes that were once provided. Again this raised my suspicion and I looked this tent up online. Only to have my suspicions confirmed by other reviews that this tent is not water resilliant and can barely withstand a breeze.

My advice if you cannot get your money back is to donate it to your neighbor's rottweiler.

I have been tent camping for over 20 years and have always had a cabin style tent and endured many wind and rain storms. After a severe storm with some wind gusts of 70+ mph and some flying tree branches totaled my last tent I decided to try this dome tent because, for one it looked like it would be cool in the hot weather and easy to put up by myself.

Big, Huge mistake. 2 days after setting it up, a rain storm came up and I watched this tent buckle and fold up like an accordion and eventually collapse (It does hold water very well). I thought I had set it up wrong so I even reread the directions and have been using it the last 4 weeks and have tried numerous things to help it withstand the winds of only 30 mph and it still wants to fold up and if the winds are over 30 mph and it starts to rain hard I just go sleep in my car.

The only good thing is that the poles have not broke yet and I automatically waterproofed it so I have had only 1 or 2 small leaks when it rained lightly.

I wish I still had my receipt because I would return this poor excuse for a tent and get my money back. I will never buy another dome tent, and now I wish I would have checked the reviews before I bought this one. I am going to buy another cabin tent.

Most of the reviews of this tent that I have read have been complaining about the waterproofing. While I have only had one night in this tent I had no problems in that department.

I took my two oldest boys on a Cub Scout camping trip. It rained so hard that, initially, we considered backing out. I actually set the tent up in the rain. Any water that made it into the tent did so before the rain fly was attached. I had no problems with leaking after the fly was put on.

It does specifically say in the instructions that the tent should be treated along the seams with waterproofing, by the way.

For the price, I think this tent would be hard to beat. I bought it for my family of five (three small boys) and it has plenty of room.

This tent is not even water "resistant," so don't take it out if there is any chance of so much as a light shower. I used mine this weekend for only the second time since purchase, setting it up on Friday evening. Saturday morning, it began to sprinkle, and almost immediately, the leaks began developing, all over the entire surface of the tent. Not the seams, nor the floor, but every part of the walls and ceiling started dripping water.

I wound up driving into town, a 30-mile round trip, to buy a tarp with which to cover it, which cost me half again what I had paid for the tent. A good thing, too, as later that night it came a-flood. If not for the tarp, all of my gear would have been soaked through and ruined. This would have been especially bad and expensive having occurred during a medieval re-enactment event.

Easy to set up, not bad looking, but if there is so much as a heavy dew, you're going to get soaked--don't waste your money.
