The Marmot Limestone 6P Tent isn't really something you want toss on your back and head out on the trail with, but for car camping or backyard excursions, it's the perfect shelter for the whole family. It sleeps six without trouble and is tall enough—over six feet—that even the adults can stand up without bumping their head on the ceiling. And with its sturdy, waterproof design, you won't have to worry when an unexpected storm threatens your plans.
Once it's pitched the whole crew will have plenty of space to sprawl out thanks to its Zone construction, which uses vertical walls to create a feel that's downright palatial when compared to other tents. Spacious vestibules provide plenty of space to store soggy boots and other gear, so the kids aren't tracking mud into the tent. Vents in the fly keep the air in the tent from getting too stuffy and stale when you're waiting out a storm, and the reflective guy-out points keep you from tripping and bringing the whole shebang down in a heap when you make a mad nighttime dash to the bathroom.

Roomy, water-tight, easy to set up
THE perfect tent for a family of 4. We’ve endured a few rain/hail gushers and stayed dry. Great design in all aspects, and I can set it up myself (but it sure is easier with my 2 young boys helping me). Love the open roof for looking at stars, which I nearly always have to cover with a rain fly in the middle of the night (again, by myself, when the family doesn’t want to get out of their bags). Provides lots of air flow even with fly on, which limits the interior mosture. I did a lot of research before buying this tent, and so glad we landed with this gem. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Perfect Family Tent!
I gave this tent to my sister and her family for Christmas last year and they love it! They used it on several family camp trips this summer and it was perfect for their family of 4!

Love the Limestone
This is a great tent so far. We used it at a festival for three days and compared to our old tent this is splendid. The things I like best were easy setup, and the zippers. I can easily setup the tent along. The way these zippers work makes them much less likely to jam up then any other tent I've used. There's nothing that sucks worse than a jammed up zipper at 2:00 am when you are trying to get out quickly. ;) I'd also like to say thanks to Backcountry.com for their fantastic customer service. The first tent that arrived had some kind of defect in the waterproof coating that made it sticky. When I called to ask what I should do there were no questions and a replacement was shipped out that same day.

Perfect Car Camping Tent
Spacious and luxurious. Plenty of room for the two adults an infant and a dog bed. The venting is great, even in morning sun it didn't over heat like some other tents. Pretty straight forward set up and take down, which was easier with two people but not necessary. The tent fabric is very sturdy and feels incredibly durable. This was exactly what we needed as a base camp for family adventures!

This tent is huge! I'm 5'9" and can't stand up easily. Lots of ventilation and super easy to setup. My only complaint is the rain fly developed a small tear on one of the seams. Marmot offered to warranty it for no charge.

Trekking Pole Awning
This awning feature is meant to be used with your trekking poles or custom made poles. Marmot does NOT manufacture these types of poles, for this purpose.

This is a great tent and super easy to set up! It rained quite hard and we had no leaking problems, very dry. Plenty of space for my husband (6ft tall) to stand up and move around fine. I did not give it 5 stars because I do wish it was more breathable (heat inside felt the same as my brother's springbar)... I also wish a bit more durable, for dogs and kids playing.... I've got to do a patch! Still happy with the tent overall though!

Very Happy with this purchase
I've now taken the Limestone 6P on two trips, and it hasn't disappointed. In high winds and high humidity in Newport, RI, it held up great and let in no moisture. On an island off the Maine coast, it was a great shelter on several chilly nights. Ease of setup is fantastic. And this tent is really, really big. I am 6'1" and can stand up inside without hitting my head. The only negative I've encountered so far is the bag for the fly. It is too small. I ended up buying a larger compression bag, rather than fight to fit the fly into the Marmot bag every time. I did extensive research on 6 and 8-person tents. Came down to the Marmot and REI Kingdom. I went with Marmot because it's a brand I trust, and it hasn't disappointed.

This tent is large enough for our family of 3, has kept us dry in a 16 hour long rain storm, dumping inches of rain. This tent is far easier to set up than the REI Kindom, the other tent I was considering. I did purchase the ground cloth just because i am accustomed to using them. Venting is not great, but it has not been an issue since i prefer to camp in cool weather. finally, I wish the vestibule was larger or atleast taller. The long poles did develop a slight bend but I have read this is to be expected. Overall, I am very happy with this tent.

I have been using very often and it is a great size good material and the best thing waterproof 100%. i have been under some thunderstorms and keeps me dry..I love the material except the aluminium stackers are so weak for some certain ground.So far i am so satisfy with my purchase i do recommend to any body..! As a plus 2 queen air mattress can fit very well..!!!

I picked this tent up for car camping. It is giant! It has plenty of room for a queen sized air mattress, a dog bed, and any gear I need to stow. Venting is sufficient, and there are lots of storage pockets. The materials seem very durable and I expect they will hold up for years to come. Set up is easier than I expected. Really the only drawback to this tent is how heavy and large it is when packed. But this isn't designed backpacking, it's intended to be a luxurious apartment away from home.

Overall really happy with this tent. The front door is all mesh which is nice because you can open up the vestibule and see outside when the fly is on. I wish the other door was mesh, at least partially, so you could get some more cross ventilation and have more views. All in all the quality is great, the materials and construction of the tent is top notch and there's a great balance of protection verse being light weight. The zippers are smooth and strong and the setup is easy with two main poles and two auxiliary poles.

Great Glamping Tent
Great tent for the family car camping trip. I am 6' and can stand all the way up inside without hitting my head. The poles are color coded and the tent goes up SUPER quick.

Great tent, but leaked
I love this tent, it has tons of room for two people for an extended camping trip. It easily fits a queen size air mattress and gives you room to stand up in the tent. We've used it several times and find it easy to put up and take down, despite its large size. The only problem we've had with it is water that wicks through through the tie downs for the vestibule door. This water will drip into the tent forma puddle on your floor. This happened to us during a wet weekend in Virginia, and it's not fun. I sealed the tie downs with waterproofer, and we'll see if that fixes the problem.

Had this leaking problem during a 24 hr heavy rain this past week in MN, curious if your sealing worked.

This is a great tent for a family or just someone who likes some extra room and doesn't care too much about size/weight. As with all Marmot tents I've encountered, it is easy to set up, has all the right features like little pockets and stuff, and seems to be great quality.

Does this product include the 3 poles and "Marmot Ultralight Footprint for Limestone Tent" too?
August 10, 2018
Hello Megabank! It definitely does come with the poles! However, it does not come with the footprint, you will have to buy that separate. You can find that footprint by typing in the code "MAR014I" in the search bar above. Let me know if you have any questions, contact details above!
