Again ask yourself what kind of camping you are planning - gentle backpacking, extreme wilderness trekking or family campsite? Typically, if you are a family campsite camper, the amount of time or complexity of setting up your tent is less critical. Obviously, the simpler the better, but for family camping the ease of setting up a large or multiple room family camping tent is not as important of a feature. That is unless you get to your campsite after dusk, then you had better have packed your camping lanterns last! These days most large family camping tents can easily be set up in about 15-20 minutes - if you have read the set-up instructions and have all the guy lines, stakes and tarps handy and ready to use.
As this article is geared toward family camping, we'll stay with the large family style camping tents. First decide on how you will be using your tent. Are you just going to sleep in it? Are you also storing personal items (clothes, entertainment, toiletries) inside? Will you be using the tent to store other camping gear? These are all important to consider before you purchase a camping tent, because when a manufacturer states that a tent sleeps four people, what they really mean to say is - this tent will only fit four normal sized sleeping bags with room for little else! So if your family of four plans to use the tent for more than just sleep, then it's wise to buy a large family camping tent that sleeps six and quite possibly a tent with more than one room (for those who are planning on camping with pre-teen and/or teenage kids - you know what I mean!).
Camping tents are categorized by using three ratings: three season tent, four season tent, and all season tent. The three season camping tent is ideal for spring, summer and fall. They can hold up in moderate weather including light snow, rain and the wind. These tents most often have mesh panels for ventilation as well.
