To me, hammocks have long been symbolic of lazy days in the sun, relaxing and having a good time. And that’s one of the reasons why I love camping hammocks and the idea of sleeping in the trees. If you haven’t come across a hammock tent before, here’s what I mean:


People who have enjoyed regular tent camping for years are now converted to using hammock tents and the reasons aren’t hard to see. A hammock tent can be erected in just a few minutes and sleeping away from the ground has many advantages.

  • Built-in mosquito net to keep bugs at bay
  • Fully waterproof
  • Weighs only a few pounds so easy to transport
  • Comfortable and soothing
  • Plenty of room inside your own personal sleeping space

Sleep protected from all weathers and from inquisitive animals and bitey bugs. Relax in your hammock during the day, protected from harsh sun or bad weather. As you can see, the overhead tarp is a great size so there’s plenty of room for, for example, a camping table and chair or your preferred cooking device.

Users report that it keeps them dry and protected even during bad weather and the hammock receives 5-star reviews at Amazon and you’ll read a lot of practical advice there too but I admit that a great part of the appeal for me is camping in the trees.
