Our tents have a legacy and history all of its own. Our canvas tents stand the test of time and will give you many, many years of memories and use.

As seen in the 2015 September Issue of Popular Mechanics Magazine, The Colorado Range Tent (Cowboy Tipi) has been in our catalog since 1916! Its proven design is the continued choice of the working ranch cowboy. It is also popular with campers who want a tent that sets up very easily and quickly. It has proven to be an excellent shelter in bad weather. The Colorado Range Tent can be supported with an external pole set, or the peak can be hung from a tree limb.

We have made tents for over 100 years. We see things that have failed, and we ask: How can we do that better?

Tents are fully assembled at Denver Tent, in Colorado, from start to finish. We only buy American made goods. Our fabrics are breathable and made with natural materials.
