As anyone who’s ever been camping knows, your tent is your home away from home. So when we heard about the REI Wonderland Tent, we were intrigued. This tent is designed to be a luxurious camping experience, with plenty of space and amenities to make you feel right at home.
We were not disappointed. The REI Wonderland Tent is truly a sight to behold. It’s huge! There are two bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen, all beautifully appointed. The tent even has a fireplace!
We were initially worried that the tent would be too hot, but the temperature was perfect. The windows and doors have screens so you can let in as much or as little air as you want.
REI Wonderland 6 Review – An In-Depth Analysis
We’ve all been there. You’re out camping, it’s raining, and your tent starts leaking. Water starts pooling on the floor, and your sleeping bag is getting wet. You try to patch the holes, but it’s too late. Your tent is ruined, and your camping trip is ruined along with it.
But what if there was a tent that could withstand anything Mother Nature could throw at it? A tent that was impervious to rain, wind, and even snow? A tent that would keep you dry and comfortable no matter what the weather was like outside?
Introducing the REI Wonderland 6 tent. This six-person tent is designed for 3 seasons, and it can handle any type of weather. It has a waterproof canopy and walls, and a water-resistant floor. The canopy is made of a durable, water-resistant fabric, and the walls are made of a breathable mesh that keeps out insects while still allowing air to circulate. The floor is made of a waterproof, abrasion-resistant material that will keep you dry even if the ground is wet.
The Wonderland 6 also has a built-in rain fly that provides extra protection from the elements. The fly is made of a waterproof, UV-resistant material that will keep you dry and protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. It also has an integrated vestibule that provides additional storage space and protects your gear from the weather.
The tent is easy to set up and take down, and it comes with everything you need for a comfortable camping experience. It includes a pole set, stakes, guy lines, and a stuff sack for easy storage. It also has a built-in gear loft for storing small items, and an internal pocket for organizing your belongings.
What we liked about it?
We have to admit, we were a little skeptical about the REI Wonderland 6 tent when we first saw it. It just looked too small to be comfortable for six people. But we were pleasantly surprised when we actually got to use it! The tent was very spacious and had plenty of room for all of us. We also loved how easy it was to set up and take down. Overall, we were very impressed with the REI Wonderland 6 tent and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great camping tent.

Interior Space details:
The REI Wonderland Tent 6 is an excellent alternative for campers looking for a large and comfortable tent. The near-vertical walls and rectangular floor plan optimize usable space, while an inner divider wall with a central zip separates the area into two inside chambers.
For stability in windy circumstances, the freestanding 6-person design has a triangulated center pole and an extended ridge pole.
Color labeling the contents, flies, footprints, and rods facilitates configuration.
The seam-sealed, cut-in floor and end awnings give shade and stability. On bright days, roll the awnings back for extra light.
The two massive doors with weather-protective ceilings provide easy, drip-free entry, views, and ventilation.
The unzipped doors fit into pockets. Even with the fly on, the scalloped fly and awnings combine with large doors and windows to allow 360° vistas.
In conjunction with low-side vents, higher-end, and door vents, the scalloped fly creates low-high chimney venting for climate management and condensation prevention.
The bugproof mesh paneling walls, windows, and doors allow for plenty of ventilation and natural light.
A main stuff sack with a shoulder strap and handle, as well as a secondary organizer stuff pouch for poles and stakes, are among the internal storage choices.
There are also 18 stakes, 8 pre-attached luminous guylines with cleat-lock tighteners, and a pole repair sleeve included with the tent.
The solution-dyed mesh decreases the tent’s environmental effect.
What We Like
The Wonderland 6 is one of the most comfortable six-person tents on the market thanks to its tunnel-like form, massive doors, and spacious 78-inch peak height.
The mesh-heavy construction provides excellent ventilation and circulation, windows on either side and an awning-style rainfly.
Setup is straightforward and intuitive and great Air Flow.
It fits easily into the big duffel bag that it comes with.
A modular and spacious basecamp
What We Don’t
The awning-style rainfly provides limited shielding against heavy rain or blowing wind and has no vestibule area.
Pockets are too far up to reach while lying down.
At $599, it’s expensive given the limited support and lack of external storage.
The mud room lacks a bug net.
