This is intended for day use to offer some shade or light rain protection at a camping, picnic or beach site. It is roomy enough to cover a picnic table, while providing 360-degree views. It is not recommended for camping - there are no floors or walls. Due to the weight, it's not practical for shipping - it's doable, but very expensive - so we suggest this product only for local pickup rentals at our store in AZ.
When setup the coverage is about 10' by 10', and the straight-leg support poles support poles raise the canopy cover up to about 8' above the ground. Includes stakes and some guy lines, but be forewarned - it doesn't take a lot of wind to send these canopies flying down the beach or campground. It it gets too windy, you're better served taking it down until it settles down some.
No tools are required to set it up. but consider a mallet for the stakes.
For overnight camping, and/or for more protection, we suggest renting our "family camping" tents, such as this 6-person model from Alps Mountaineering.
