Why We Like The Timberline 4 Tent

After a day exploring the nearby trails and roasting all the marshmallows, we snuggle into the Timberline 4 with our littles, slipping easily into a deep sleep with the large mesh windows bringing that fresh mountain air through. When nature calls in the middle of the night, we reach for a headlamp in one of the mesh pockets and easily slip out the large front door.

30 Year Old Eureka 4 person Timberline Still Going

My family has owned a Timberline 4 person tent for over 30 years. We’ve used it a half dozen times a year every year since we’ve had it. No damage, durable, lightweight, easy to set up and easy on the eye. We’ve had several other big tents over the years that leaked or ripped, and thrown away. The Timberline has been a great tent for us! Highly recommend!

Good for decades

I bought my Timberline 4 tent in 2003 (anniversary edition), as a young single adult. I used to use the same tent as a kid in the boy scouts. We would sleep 4 with our gear as kids. I think its best for 1-2 adults with gear. Would be pretty cozy with 4 adults. It's easy for 1 person to set up. It is compact when put away in its bag. Never had any rain leakage in 20 years. I've always used the fly when I camp but you can camp without the fly on nice weather days. You get amazing breezes and views if you want as well. This tent is not for standing up in and not for tables/chairs or even cots. Well maybe a cot for 1 or 2 but its not really tall enough. 20 year update - I had 1 fly pole break but it was due to human error. I bought a replacement pole set but never had any more human error issues. The tent stakes are all mangled and bent. For such an amazing and durable tent, the provided tent stakes are the cheapest metals stakes possible. I bought new beefy stakes this year (2023), just because I was sick of the bent mangled stakes, not because they broke or got lost. The elastic chords on the top of the tent and the ends/bottom of the rain fly, are finally starting to fail. They are pretty stretched out and contribute to some sagging. BUT, we are still regularly using this tent and it isnt causing any real issue yet. The tent is still waterproof. I rarely use a tarp under the tent. Just plop it on the ground and go. I do suggest some doormat. I've tried to find reasons to buy a newer tent. Maybe taller and bigger, but who wants to lug around and store a taller and bigger tent? This really is perfect for 2-4 people. Big enough but small and lightweight. Looks good. Incredibly durable. Expect this tent to last decades IF you know how to treat the things you own with care.

Great tent

I’ve had one of these tents for over 30 years and it is still going. Just used it on a 6 day backpacking trip.

30+ Years of use

Purchased this tent along with the Timberline 2 person some 30+ years ago for outdoors camping with my young family. Been through every environment that Mother Nature has dished out year after year. So why my five star rating? Well I no longer own the tents as I passed them on to my two sons who still use them with their families. Time tested design and unbelievable quality.

4 man Eureka

I have had Eureka tents for 50 years - one 2-man tent and 2 4-man versions. Generally, I like the Timberline but zipper problems are aggravating. If they could have heavier duty zippers that would last, I would be loyal, but now I am looking at other brands.

Best Tent Ever Created... Ever

I have camped in my Timberline since 1994... In the 28 years that my Timberline has traveled the United States it has always been a reliable and well-built shelter that's always been dependable. There is plenty of room for 2 people in this tent, even three people can lay down comfortably in this shelter. 4 people as advertised is a bit of a tight squeeze. It can be a bit tricky to set up the first few times but once you get the hang of it, its a breeze. If set up correctly this tent will always keep you dry and out of the elements. Theres plenty of room to move around in this shelter, added side pockets inside are great, zippers and screens are quality. The vestibule is a MUST and money well spent as an add-on for this shelter. Lots of room, simple, and will most likely outlive its owner. Its hard to find good products these days, Eureka has always done good with this one.

Official Tent of our family

I was a Boy Scout in the 1990s and these were the only tents we used from April-November all over New England. Of course when my son joined Boy Scouts I had to get the same tent for nostalgic and brand trust reasons. Not much has changed over the past 20 something years. The plastic connectors are less complicated, the colors changed slightly saving white and brown for the higher end models, however the ease of assembly (can be put together by one person in the dark is a win to me), and the quality remain the same. I did peek at other brands when shopping for tents online. However Eureka won in the long run especially when they offer replacements parts and repairs which the competition doesn't. We just used our tent in the Maine Woods where it got down to 20 degrees in November and stayed warm and dry. I have three Boys and will be buying more Eureka Timberline Tents as they younger ones get older so they each have one for them and their friends. Even when I ran into a snafu Customer Service went above and beyond. We will be customers for generations. Thank you Eureka!

High Quality Product, Excellent Customer Service!!

Our Scout Troop has about 25 Timberline tents, some of which are nearly 20 years old. The tent is a very solid product! We recently purchased 5 new Timberline 4s and, after an ordering error on my part, the Johnson Outdoors/Eureka customer service team went well beyond my expectations in helping me exchange and upgrade.
