A castle and a keep for growing families on-the-go, this impressive structure sets up in minutes and creates a roomy and inviting space to crash-out after a long day at play. Two generous D-shaped doors prevent juvenile logjams, while handy, removable hanging pockets in the vestibule keep your odds and ends in good order. Rugged canopy and floor fabrics hold up to years of use and abuse.

An extremely easy tent to set up, it is also very light. The tent itself is 1/2 screen material and 1/2 fabric material which may make it a bit “airy” for colder climes. I first used it in November during wind and rain conditions and found it to be very dry although a bit chilly. The included rain fly provides excellent coverage of the tent and the only condensation I noted after camping for 7 days straight was in the vestibule area of the rain fly and did not affect the tent interior. As is usual with most tent advertising, this being sold as a 6 person tent is quite a stretch of the imagination, which is why I only gave it a 4 star rating. It sleeps 2 VERY comfortably along with gear. 3 people could use it if gear is left in your vehicle. Any more than that is going to be downright crowded. Tent is difficult to store in the provided bag, but I usually put mine in a larger vented sports bag along with the poles. Speaking of poles – they are substantial and not flimsy or cheaply made. Quality all around.

Summary: If you plan on family camping more than once and insist on staying dry, this is your entry point. If our family wanted more tent, we would upgrade to canvas with double the cost and 4x the weight. This tent fits our needs perfectly.
An excellent 6-person tent from Marmot!

We’ve had this tent for 2 years now and have been very impressed with its ease of setup, headroom, stability in high winds, and total imperviousness to heavy rain. It provides room to spare for my wife and me with a queen-size inflatable mattress, plus our two boys with Thermarests, and our Golden Retriever. It would easily sleep six adults. The vestibules are large and very handy. We bought this tent after our last one was demolished in a Southeast Utah windstorm, and have been very happy.
Dry through days of rain

Oh what a relief it was to have this bright, cheery orange tent in rainy weather. It kept us dry through several days of rain. And then the nice man on the Cat D6 bulldozer came and towed our car up the road that had turned to mud.

Strong poles, easy to setup and overall well designed. Took me a few mins to figure out the features etc, but should be an easy setup from here on out. With a tent this big it helps to have another person around, but I think this one will be fairly easy even solo when I dont have any help around. Thanks marmot!
I like it.

We’ve spent at least 40 nights in this tent. Here are my concerns. Tents stakes were cool until camping in the desert, they won’t hammer into hard ground, I’m taking the chinese nails with the green plastic top on them next time. I’ve been able to get it back in the bag once at home, not too big a deal. The vestibule could be a tad bit larger for the size of the tent, don’t expect to close the vestibule with out opening the tent, but it keeps the foot print smaller. Were starting to get a tear in the screen material where the poll clips are sewn in on two of the corners, that may not be a problem if your 5 year old doesn’t bounce off the walls. Other than that, the tent sets up easy, polls are strong, and the limited wind and rain it’s been in was fine. I really like this tent, it works well for the four of us, and I’d buy it again. I like it enough that when I get a back packing tent, I will lean toward Marmot.
Only really two poles to keep it from the wind…

Even getting the taller 6 person tent did not make a believer of me. While I like the Marmot Limestone, I really prefer the older Big Agnes Big House 4. (These 6 and 4 person offerings really do stretch it!). And we are looking forward to trying their Ten Sleep Station tent. The Big Agnes tents are somewhat taller than this Marmot. What I found most disturbing about this tent was the crazy configuration that stretches out the sleeping arrangement across the floor rather than front to back. But, allowing for that slight deviation, my service dog and I camp out about 90 to 95 nights a year and it holds up well. Had we gotten the 4-person offering it would have had a negative impact upon our sleeping arrangements, as well as being on the short side. But it would have fared a lot better on the tent pads of most campgrounds.
