the glamping essentials
For camping and outdoors purists, “glamping” can be a dirty word, but we believe that adventure belongs to everyone. Including folks who want a chocolate on their pillow. We have been crafting functional tents for more than 100 years. Our canvas wall tent designs have withstood the test of time, so it was only natural that we bring the art of the tent to the glamping industry.
Crafted for Luxury Camping Experiences
Our Glamping tents are where outdoor adventure meets modern luxury. These semi-permanent canvas tents place a premium on space and comfort, making for the most pleasant night sleep you’ll find away from your own bed. Add to that affordability, portability, durability, and endless customization options, and canvas Glamping tents make the perfect shelter for all your needs. We are committed to fostering the most comfortable experience for your home away from home.
There are several considerations when choosing a tent for Glamping. Make sure you’re picking the right shelter for your specific needs based on durability, size, customization, ventilation, and more. Here are key features to keep in mind:
A semi-permanent Glamping tent needs to last year after year and withstand a range of elements. Durability is especially important if you’re considering a glamping business like rentals or Airbnb. Our legendary Diamond Brand wall tents can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance. Furthermore, we’ve triple reinforced the corners of our frames, reinforced the ridge lines and sealed the roof seams of our Glamping wall tents to protect the spots most prone to wear and tear.
Ease of use
We pride ourselves on making Glamping wall tents that are not only durable and enjoyable to use, but easy to set up. Our Orion frames can be assembled in under 10 minutes with 2 people and the canvas glamping tent can be applied to the frame in under 60 minutes with 2 people. Our frames are built to handle the most punishing of glamping conditions, especially when used with a well made platform. Designs that can be easily constructed by a verified partner are available upon request.
Glamping is all about comfort, and for that, ventilation is key. Our glamping tents keep the adventure and the breeze flowing. Our 13-ounce polyester/cotton canvas is both durable and breathable. The two-door entry not only provides easy access to your shelter, but allows for a generous airflow. Our portable Glamping tents feature internal and external door closures double as tie-backs for even greater ventilation.
One size doesn’t fit all. Are you looking for a tent to accommodate a couple or an entire family? Be sure to check for tent dimension options and designs when researching glamping tent options. Many of our classic wall tents come in five standard sizes. Choose among a smaller 7’ x 8’10”, a mammoth 12’ x 16’ or a happy medium in between. For those who need something outside the box, we can easily produce Glamping wall tents to meet a custom size.

Our glamping tents are adaptable enough to be suited to many climates and weather conditions to ensure that your Glamping site is able to maximize availability.
Adventure doesn’t have a season, and neither should wall tent Glamping. If you’re planning on offering canvas tent Glamping experiences year-round, make sure your tents can withstand conditions year-round. Look for canvases that are fire retardant, mildew resistant, UV resistant, and water resistant, so Glampers can sleep comfortably any time of the year. And as an extra precaution, look for materials that are easily repairable and replaceable. After all, it’s better to replace a few materials than a whole tent.
