What type of weather conditions can you expect during your family camping vacation? Will you need a heavy duty Northwestern Territory Tent or a lightweight Ozark Trail Tent? You should always expect. Be prepared for the worst type of weather, rain, wind. Cold are all possibilities on any camping trip.

There are three season and four season tents available for you to purchase, such as Wenzel tents and Ozark Trail tents. Four season tents are typically heavier than three season tents and provide a lot more protection. They also tend to have more poles than most three season tents have, this is to help the heavier tent withstand any wind and snow fall that you may encounter.

You’ll want to have a much larger area inside your tent when sharing a tent with your children, especially as you may experience some nasty weather that may leave you with the children stuck inside the tent for long periods of time.

It's advised that they'd an area to play board games and other activities to keep them engaged. Additionally a larger tent will give you ample room to store equipment if unpleasant weather strikes.
