Coleman Rockwall Tent

You should always be hesitant of buying a product that uses the word 'awesome' in its description. That's red flag number one.

Red flag number two (and more concerning) is that this 12 man cabin tent by Coleman requires two carrying bags. This makes it incredibly difficult to pitch, carry, and travel with.

That aside, Coleman Rockwall 12 Tents include many useful features, including:

  • Easy to pitch - Coleman's Insta-Clip technology makes pitching this family camping shelter easy

  • Gazebo tent style - The Coleman Rockwall is a Gazebo tent, meaning plenty of headroom for taller family members

  • Hinged door - Easy entrance and exit, as well as good airflow

  • Self rolling windows - You control exactly how much light, wind, and privacy you need

  • Tent light - Integrated remote controlled tent light system

  • 4 Rooms - Put the kids to bed and enjoy cuddling with your partner in privacy

If you were buying a dome camping tent only based on privacy and size, then the Coleman Rockwall Tent would be your best, cheaply priced option. However, reviews and specs tell a different story...

Coleman Rockwall Cabin Tent - Advantages

The Rockwall is a gigantic tent that comfortably sleeps 8-10 adults (even though it's marketed as a 12 man tent, consumer reviews claim otherwise).

The rolling windows and hinged doors are useful features that are coveted by families when camping. While rolling windows are somewhat of a novelty, the hinged door allows great airflow and circulation.

Its max height and gazebo style allow tall family members to roam comfortably throughout the tent without feeling claustrophobic.

Finally, the Coleman Rockwall Tent pitches quickly and effortlessly thanks to Coleman's Insta-Clip technology. Being able to set up your shelter easily is a must for any family dome tent.

Coleman Rockwall Tent - Disadvantages

With all these positive features, you must be curious to know why consumer reviews of the Coleman Rockwall 12 Man Tent are mixed...

Two words: poor quality.

Many consumers had parts of the Rockwall 12 Man Cabin Tent break after one use. This is unacceptable in a camping tent.

Bad construction ruins a tent and can ruin your vacation. Not only are you flushing money down the drain by investing in a poorly built, cheap camping tent, but you risk turning your kids off from camping forever.

Coleman Rockwall Tents: Consumer Reviews

Consumers like:
  • Hinged doors
  • Size
  • Easy to pitch
  • Cheap price
  • Large, rolling windows
Consumers don't like:
  • Poor quality


Even though the Coleman Rockwall Tent looks like a steal for being under $300 and sleeping 8-10 people comfortably, its poor construction makes it too big of a liability.

Bottom line: Don't waste your money on the Coleman Rockwall Cabin Tent for your family.
