Eureka Sunrise 8 Tent Review: Best Canoe & Car Camping Tent

by Laurie
(Maine)

I heartily recommend the Eureka Sunrise 8 tent.

We have used a lot of tents that are really hard to put up. Another problem is waterproofing. It is a real downer to have the floor get damper and damper during the night or to have water leaking in around the seams.

This summer we purchased a Eureka Sunrise 8. It is a four-person tent, which means it’s perfect for two people and some gear.

We like to have some space in the tent, but you could also fit in a couple kids. There is a good amount of room to keep some packs and it’s nice to have them out of the elements.

This tent was so simple to put up.

There are flexible rods that fold out into poles which slot into holders. In a few minutes the tent was up and completely secure. The nice thing about it is that the floor and tent are all one piece. It has a nice rain fly, also easy to put on.

During the first night of our camping trip, we had a horrendous rain and wind storm. We had no rain leak in at all, and the tent survived the heavy winds with no trouble and nothing coming loose.

There are screened windows all around the top of the tent. Ventilation is always needed in a tent. These are covered by the rain fly, so you can leave them open during storms, or zip them up if things are getting very windy and rainy.

Taking the tent down is also very easy. The poles fold up into small segments and are bagged. The tent slides into a bag easily.

It would be a little heavy for a hiker, but for a canoe trip or car trip, it is a perfect tent.

Eureka Sunrise 11 Camping Tent Review

by Michelle
(Fredericksburg, VA)

The Eureka Sunrise 11 is the perfect camping tent for our family.

Easy to set up, plenty of room for 3 of us, all our camping gear, and our dog.

The large, open square allows for you to set up the interior however you need it. There's even a nice loop at the top to hang a lantern!

Also, we take advantage of the useful, utility loops at the corners to put up a string or something in the interior for various reasons.

And the best part: I'm 5'10" and can stand comfortably in the Eureka Sunrise 11.

When I camp in the Eureka Sunrise 11, it doesn't feel like I'm tenting in cramped quarters at all.

I could live in this tent forever!

The rainfly keeps us dry and it's airy when it's hot.

I love the Eureka Sunrise 11 for my family!
