Drive your stakes deeper than you've ever driven them before.

Replace your scoop-shaped stakes with the y-beam-shaped stakes in the MSR Groundhog Tent Stake Kit. Rugged 7000-series aluminum makes these stakes strong without adding unnecessary weight. A small loop of nylon cord makes it easy to pull these stakes out of heavily compacted ground once it's time to pack up camp.

Great quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought these to replace the cheap stakes that came with my Marmot tent, and I was not disappointed! Got them into the ground easily with no bending! The ties on the ends make pulling them up super easy, as well.

big upgrade

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

after years of backpacking and camping I finally ditched my stock stakes and picked these babies up. Blown away at the weight and how much easier they were to drive into the ground.
A little surprised that on the maiden voyage I bent one of the stakes when stepping on it. Ground was moist and muddy, but cold and I suspect I hit a rock or some frozen ground beneath the initial moist soil on top. still functional and haven't had any of the others bend in the 3-4 uses since.

Best Stake on the market hands down!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Aconcagua tough, used them all the way around the tent untill camp 3! Baller stakes! MSR got it going on! out of ten I only broke two by smashing them with the rock too hard!

MSR Groundhog are BOSS!

The MSR Groundhog Stakes are the best, period. My MSR Groundhog Stakes have been used with my tents and hammock tarp/fly setups. MSR Groundhog Stakes are made of aluminum, weigh 0.7 ounces each and are strong. My MSR Groundhog Stakes have been in rocky, loose and tough ground and pounded on with the back of knives, axes and hammers and have never bent. Sure my MSR Groundhog Stakes have a few dings and imperfections, but they are going strong. They have a attached cord for ease of taking them out of the ground. My MSR Groundhog Stakes have never come out of the ground on me, and I have been in some super windy and weather ridden days, they stick and stay. Berz Rating: 100/100

Solid but not perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are extremely light weight and strong tent stakes. They hold their place in the ground incredibly well and I am very happy I got them. I've had one thing I don't like about the stakes but I don't think this is necessarily worth docking off a star, more of a personal irritation. I scuffed them up pretty bad driving them into rock ground. There weren't any big rocks but the ground was very tough and the stakes had several gouges in them after I removed them the next morning. They still function perfectly fine but now have sharp little edges on them so I need to take extra care to not cut myself or catch any fabric on them. Aside from that these have been phenomenal.

Unbelievable!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These stakes are tough & lightweight! What more do you need? I have used them for over a year now & they have held up great & have held my tent in place flawlessly...

If looking for a lighter more compact tent stake look at the MiniGroundhog Tent Stake... They are awesome!

Wow!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Now I understand why the other reviewers rave about these stakes - once they're in, they're in! I upgraded to both these (7.5") and the Groundhog Mini's (6") and used them recently in both soft desert sand and pounded into root filled cement-hard dirt, in 30 mph plus winds. The Groundhogs held true, didn't budge by even a smidgen. Even in hard ground these stakes went in easily without bending and were easy to pull out. These things are awesome and well worth their price, they are a definite must for any tent kit. And thank you Backcountry for your excellent service!

Great upgrade to any tent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Every tent comes with those cheap stakes that fold as soon as you hit hard dirt or a rock. With these stakes you can hit rocks, tree roots and anything else without fear of them folding over. A huge plus is the reflective cord it is attached to the stake making it easy to spot for a low light set up or take down.

Great stakes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are nice strong stakes that will hold up to abuse. They work great for guy lines on tarps and such. They hold into the ground even when the wind picks up. I have only used them for tarps so far, don't know how they would work with holding down tent corners but for guy lines they work great

A little heavy but very worth it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these stakes because of how durable they seemed. I had been using titanium stakes before, because they are so light, but I quickly got tired of them because they were kind of wimpy. After hammering them into tough ground with rocks, I can testify to their durability. They are a bit heavy, but worth their weight. You want solid, dependable gear when in the wilderness.

Tough stakes.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

my groundhogs are not red anymore. They have taken a beating...into stumps, roots, gravel and sandy soil. They are still in perfect structural condition. Wouldnt go with any other stake.

Great Upgrade Stakes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like some others have said, I have replaced all my tent stakes with the groundhogs and they are awesome. I have some of the older sets, but since they've put the reflective pulls on, theyre the perfect stakes for me and my hammock system. They hold in anything, even some softer soils..but not so much in loose sand. Can totally de driven into cracky rock, but you might not get them back out...even though having the pulls make it much more possible. Talked to someone who claimed they drove them into some northeastern shale...but have yet to try that out.

These stakes are awesome

The picture is deceiving. These stakes are way smaller that the normal groundhogs, hence the mini. But these are way lighter. They still hold well in the ground. i personally hate shepard hooks, so i like these much better for a little more weight. I will probably end up buying more of these because i like them so much.

Strong Stakes

These stakes are super tough. The y-shape provides excellent holding power in most kinds of ground. I have had these freeze in the ground, so sometimes the hold is too much. The only time one of these stakes has ripped out is when it was holding a large tarp over my hammock as a rainfly and 20-30 mph winds broadsided me all morning, and it finally pulled out. But in a tent, they are bomber. A little heavy, and sometimes a little more than needed, but they give me peace of mind that in the event of horrible mountain weather, my tent will stay nice and dry. Plus they are super durable and resist a lot of abuse.

Great Stakes

Lightweight and great for camping and other items that need to be staked down to the ground. Super light and won't bend on you while hammering them in the ground no matter how tough the ground may be.

Nice peg

Heavy duty but also a little heavy

Truly a beast!

If you need a stake that can be pounded into the ground and expect them to stay, this is the one! These can take a pounding from hammers, rocks or sticks... Then, once they are in the ground, it is very likely that they won't come out until you pull them out... and by pull, I mean pull!

These are a lot of stake and that can be a good thing. For a couple of years it is all I used and they served me well. I to replace the cord on some because they would get between the rock and the stake when pounding them in with rocks, but other than that, they have held up.

However, over time I have realized that these stakes are more than I need. I have moved on to smaller stakes and these are no longer in my kit. But not because they are bad, just more than I need, which also means heavier!

I still give these 5 stars though because they do what they are supposed to.

When you need a little more...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This stake is a little beefier and heavier than its lighter weight counterparts (see LeeH's review), but it definitely makes up for this in durability. This is the kind of stake you can take backpacking and not have to worry about pounding into the ground with a rock.

Groundhog vs Needle

  • Gender: Male

I bought a few groundhogs to supplement the needle stakes that came with my MSR Mutha Hubba. The needle stakes work fine, but are shorter and harder to pull out. The groundhogs are bigger in every dimension, but still fit in the Mutha Hubba stake ditty bag.
