Rent a Hot Tent and Stove

Winter camp with the comfort of a stove and shelter.

    If you're experienced enough to take the hot tent by yourself, then we can get you set up with everything you need. Due to the nature of hot tenting, we will ask you some qualifying questions to ensure that we're comfortable with you renting our hot tent. 

    If you do not have experience, we highly recommend you spend a night or two in the hot tent on our property for your first time or in Frontenac Park at site 11 for your second or third time. This will allow you to get familiar with hot tenting while having some added security.

Our expectations of YOU:

    Although some people will run the woodstove at night, we do not permit this within our hot-tents due to health and safety. Therefore, you must bring a cold-weather sleeping bag. We recommend something with a minimum rating of -20C or -15C paired with another sleeping bag or quilt. Here's a selection of sleeping bags we carry and suggest.

    We expect that you understand the inherent risks involved with winter camping and hot tenting. 

    We ask that you have no open flame inside the hot tent, ie. Candles. We condone the use of candles when the flame is protected, such as a Candle Lantern or a Candlelier (Check them out here). There is a greater risk of burning the tent down than carbon monoxide poisoning.

    We expect you to understand how to run a wood stove safely and take precautions against carbon monoxide poisoning.

    We expect you to clean the chimney flue of creosote build-up at least once every 5-7 days.

    We ask that you do not run propane heaters inside the tent. This dramatically increases the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

PLEASE, NO SMOKING IN THE TENT

We expect you to answer qualifying questions upon rental booking and sign a form stating that you understand these expectations and risks upon rental pick-up.
