Cool & Easy: Why We Love Veer Family Basecamp Pop-Up Tent

If your family loves to spend time outdoors, the Veer Family Basecamp Pop-Up Tent is a game-changer! The original Basecamp Tent for kids was one of Veer’s biggest hits, so it’s only logical that the Family Basecamp Tent by Veer has also become one of our favorites for camping, tailgating, and visiting the beach with the entire family. 


Why We Love It

A premium, open-air tent sized to comfortably fit two adults, kids, and unlimited accessories, this instant pop-up shelter comes fully assembled and easily pops into place without any time-consuming tent poles. Your family can instantly stay shaded and cool no matter where your day takes you. Plus, its construction offers UPF 50 sun protection to defend you and your children’s skin from harmful UV rays. It is fully assembled, popping open and closing with ease. Three walls provide customizable air flow options with 3-1 zip windows. The water-resistant floor keeps everything dry. When you’re on the sand, you can even swap the floor for a sand mat that whisks away grit. It’s also super portable. Since mom and dad’s hands and shoulders are often full, the Family Basecamp easily attaches to the side of the Veer Cruiser for seamless transportation.

What Parents Are Saying About the Veer Family Basecamp Tent

With Veer’s original Basecamp being such a popular piece of gear among parents, it should come as no surprise that the family-sized option is also a favorite. Take a look at these Veer Family Basecamp reviews:

“Used the family basecamp on the beach in Rosemary during an incredibly hot week. Couldn’t believe how cool it was, not just how it looked – the white material seems to reflect the sun and doesn’t even get hot to the touch. We’d zip up a window when the sun was coming from that direction so it didn’t pummel us inside, then unzip when the sun moved. A couple of days were windy, and we were laughing as our neighbors' shelters were rolling down the beach. The regular stakes worked fine, and we didn’t need to use the tethers at any point. Super easy to pop open, works just like regular basecamp (which we also have).”

“The Basecamp by Veer made my beach trip so much more enjoyable. Given the light weight and ease of use, the Basecamp's simplicity is unrivaled. The camp provided much-needed shelter from the elements throughout the day. Avoiding a pop-up rain shower, a safe place for my littlest to nap, or just for the adults to get out of the sun for a bit, the versatility was endless and I cannot imagine going to the beach without it. Thank you once again Veer for developing a product that just makes life a bit easier and more memorable.”

“We got this for our trips to the bay and a great play yard for the little ones to enjoy but also for us to sit in with them. Roomy and very sturdy. Two of us were able to put it together in just a few minutes.”

“We couldn't be more thrilled with this tent! It was the perfect shelter for a day at the beach, especially with our 3 1/2-month-old re: sun protection!”

“We love this tent! We have a family of 6 and we can all fit comfortably inside. Set up and take down is very easy.”

The Verdict

The Veer Family Basecamp is a premium, no-assembly, pop-in-place, open-air tent shelter sized to comfortably fit two adults, kids, and unlimited accessories. Its spaciousness, ease of use, portability, and functionality make this item a must-have for any day at the beach, camping, or other outdoor family excursion.
