    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, and 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.

    Held just fine

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

    I got these stakes for staking out a tarp for a camp shelter. I haven't used them in any crazy weather, but general windy days were just fine. The stakes didn't bend during placement and were removed and came clean easily from damp soil .

    Batten Down The Hatches

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After a summer of camping, I have managed to damage or loose quite a few of the stakes than came with my tent. These are a welcome upgrade. They are far more durable, are easier to drive in the ground and weigh less. Positives all around.

    Awesome lightweight stakes!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super lightweight, easy to put into the ground! Great for backpacking or front country camping, you really can't go wrong with them!

    Great set of stakes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you have a tent and the original tent stakes are not really working or bending when you pound them in I would check out these. They are made out of a stronger material so they do not bend really easily and hold in the ground really well. Check these out if you need a spare set of tent stakes or want to try something a little more heavy duty

    My go-to stakes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Groundhog stakes have become my go-to for most conditions. The design has worked great - -plenty of hold in a variety of soil conditions, very hard to bend given the Y design. The little loops to help extract are also great. As other have mentioned, there isn't a huge catch for the guyline, but I've never found it to be an issue when there's tension on the lines. I've used both for freestanding tents and tarp setups and been pumped with the results for both.

    Best stakes around

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used these stakes in all kinds of conditions and they excel in them all. From dirt to sand to hard packed rocky soil I've had no issues driving these into the ground or having them secure my tent. The nylon loop makes extracting them a cinch. Even in the windiest conditions they've worked great. Definitely replace those worthless stakes that came with your tent, you won't regret it.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are a solid replacement for most standard tent stakes that bend when you look at them funny. These are light enough to backpack with, not too big, and there is really no fear of bending or breaking them due to their design. They do not offer a huge catch for the tent chords, but if you drive them in at an angle with adequate tension, they will do the job without any issue.

    strong, top could be designed better

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This stake is very strong, but the top isn't designed well.

    The stock stakes with my tent bend, these do not. They're really strong. My complaint is that the top isn't designed to catch the corner of the tent webbing very well. I can rig a cord to make it work or drive it at an angle and it works okay but it would be better if the stake had a disc shape on the top that extended out about a quarter inch around the shaft. A disc shape like this would also protect feet that step on the top of the tent stake. My daughter hurt her foot when she stepped on a stake in flip-flops and the stake struck her arch just to the side of the flip-flop's sole.

    Get 8 packs instead, same price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wish I looked up the product details closely when I did my purchase. They also come in 8 pack instead of 6, and it is the same price. And unfortunately, my tent takes 8 of them to tie it down. Sigh...

    But qualitywise, this is my second time buying them. They should be standard ground stakes for any tents, period.
