Ozark Trail 12-Person Instant Cabin Tent with Screen Room


Would not recommend. Locking poles will not stay locked.

Rating: rated 0.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $179.97


Would not recommend. Locking poles will not stay locked. Had only set up twice.


  • It has a lot of room inside


  • Screen room is useless
  • Poles will not stay locked

The tent is not so easy to set up as advertised. Leaked the first time up. We literally used the tent the first time two weeks ago and it completely fell down while my daughter, who is in a wheelchair and her family were inside. The poles would not stay locked, therefore the tent will not stay up.

Have contacted both Walmart and manufacturer, and was told there was nothing they could do because I purchased the tent last August. We had to find other means for their family to stay on our vacation since the tent fell our first night of vacation.

Not only do I not have a tent anymore, but it cost me a lot more money to accommodate the family for our vacation. Would definitely not be purchasing any products from Walmart or Ozark Trail in the future.


Welcome to Trailspace, Michele. I'm sorry you had such a disappointing experience.
