Coleman Lakeside Tent
Roomy 8-Person Tents

The Coleman Lakeside Tent is one of the larger tents that Coleman makes...billed as an 8-person tent, from experience this tent will most likely be comfortable for 4-5 people with gear.

While it is a large size camping tent and is not a backpacking tent, the Coleman Lakeside tent is set up sort of like a backpacking tent in the way the door is placed on one of the shorter sides of the tent rather than the long side, as in most family tents or other Coleman tents.

Features of the Coleman Lakeside Tent

Although this is not one of Coleman's most popular tents, this tent still has many of the great features that makes the Coleman tents so popular overall.

To keep you comfortable and dry, this tent has Coleman's Weathertec system with all of its features designed to keep the contents of the tent, including you, your family, and your gear all comfortable and dry.

The large rainfly extends over the door and windows, also to keep the insides of the tent and its contents/inhabitants dry.

Mesh vents in the door, windows, and "skylight" allow for ventilation in this tent...does the Coleman Cool Port..which looks like a little doggie door, and yes, people use it as such too..but which also allows extra air movement into the tent at ground level to make you more comfortable. You can also use this port to access gear you might want to store outside your tent rather than in it.

The Coleman Lakeside tent also has a built-in door mat to help keep out dirt and debris, a viewing skylight for those beautiful starry cloudless nights when you are not expecting rain, and a gear loft and storage pockets for keys, books, flashlights, a tent fan, etc.

Finally, don't forget Coleman's standard features such as the shock-corded poles, setup instructions sewn into the bag so you don't lose them, and convenient separate storage bags for your tent, tent poles, and stakes.

Size-wise the Coleman Lakeside tent measures a HUGE 15 feet long by 10 feet wide, making it perfect as a large family camping tent.

It stands 73 inches high in the center, which is 6 feet 1 inch, a comfortable height that allows most people to easily stand upright when inside of it.
