Ozark Trail Hazel Creek 16 Person Family Cabin Tent Review

The Ozark trail hazel creek 16 person family cabin tent is more of a cabin than a tent. The frame makes it feel sturdy, and its height keeps out wind and rain. The seams are taped so there are no leak points.

There are 17 windows, which allow the air to flow through for ventilation. It’s water-resistant on the outside, but it’s still nice to have some protection inside with the rainfly that covers the entire top of the tent. The rainfly is attached to the tent so that it doesn’t get lifted by the wind.

The windows can be closed with zipper flaps, which will help keep out bugs and other unwanted creatures. Each window also has its own mosquito screen.

The windows can be opened or closed by just pulling or pushing them down or up. It’s very easy to use and takes little effort to learn how to do it.

There is a built-in area in the back of the tent that can be used for additional storage space and a built-in area inside of the tent for hanging clothes and gear.

If there is rain, you don’t need to worry about water getting inside through the top overhang because it is water-resistant although not waterproof.

There is a rainfly that covers the whole tent and it can be tied down so it won’t get blown away or pulled off. The material looks like it will last for a long time even if it gets rained on.
