What is the Outwell Yosemite Lake 6TC like?

The new Yosemite Lake from Outwell takes poled tents to another level – from the lavish technical cotton fabric to the silent, magnetic doors, this is sheer luxury. And when you see it pitched on a campsite in the sunshine, it takes your breath away.

The five-berth 5TC was already a winner in the 2022 Camping magazine awards and it turns out its bigger brother, the 6TC, is just as magnificent.

For those who prefer poles over air, this is a real treat. As our awards judges said about the 5TC, the Yosemite Lake is possibly the best poled tent we have seen for years.

Not only does it look good, but it is also packed full of top-of-the range features. Although, to be fair, with a price tag of over £2,000, that’s what you would expect.

The three-zone tent features magnetic Quick&Quiet Access and Inner doors, large Ambassador Master Bedrooms and the HookTrack hanging system. The rear ventilation system provides plenty of airflow to keep the tent cool in summer and prevent condensation all year round.

The front door of the porch opens out completely and you can lift the groundsheet in there to create a wet room.

The technical cotton flysheet adds a touch of luxury. It brings the best of both worlds – the lifespan, water resistance and practicality of modern materials, combined with the breathability of natural cotton. And for those of us who pine for the good old days, the cotton also provides something of the feel and smell of a traditional canvas tent.

With a generous living space throughout, this is a great option for family campers willing to pay top dollar for something special for their adventures in the great outdoors.
