Big Tent, Simple Setup

Our Tipi/Laavu-style canvas tent, designed for 1-4 people, offers enough space for a couple with gear and a wood fire stove or up to four individuals with single mattresses and less gear.

Setting up camp is a breeze with our Ezy Pitch system, taking just 10 minutes or less: Simply peg the groundsheet, insert the centre pole, attach the webbing loops to the pegs, and tighten the webbing. Additional guy ropes are available for stormy weather, though they are often unnecessary.

The floor is made from ultra-thick waterproof 500 GSM ripstop PVC, creating a bathtub-type floor that keeps you dry in wet conditions. The floor can be unzipped and removed for easy cleaning or for using the tent canopy as a shade structure.

Two large internal pockets provide safe storage for valuables such as phones, car keys, and wallets. The Tipi packs into an oversized, fit-for-purpose canvas bag that will fit into any car boot.


Dual-Door Design

Take advantage of cross breezes with our dual-door design, offering different configurations for ultimate ventilation. The two doors, opposite each other, each with separate mesh screens, keep bugs out while allowing airflow. The canvas outer doors can be zipped from top-down or bottom-up, offering options for light, ventilation, and privacy.

The door zips are protected by a storm flap. The doors extend and roll up neatly, secured by a loop and toggle system.

Our heavy-duty mosquito mesh inner doors ensure bug-free nights and four windows that have secondary mesh windows to provide even more ventilation options.


Homecamp Quality

Crafted from specially woven lightweight canvas, our tent strikes the perfect balance between durability and weight. The canvas is premium Homecamp quality and is resistant to UV, mildew, and water. We’ve ensured longevity by double-stitching seams, gussets, and stress points.

We use light but durable hard-anodized aluminium poles, reflective 440 Paracord guy rope with metal tensioners, and heavy-duty twisted ‘rebar’ style stakes for stability. Stainless steel D rings secure the groundsheet pegs, while custom-made Homecamp plastic buckles and toggles ensure ease of use.

Our commitment to quality, durability, and sustainability is evident in every detail. We design our products to last, reducing waste and minimising the need for replacements.


Accessorise Your Tent

Expand your tent footprint and create the perfect indoor/outdoor space with a Homecamp Tipi Wing Tarp.

*Note: New for 2024, we have included a built-in fire-resistant Stove Jack, which can be paired with a medium-sized Winnerwell stove. Care should be taken if you are planning to Hot Tent, and it pays to read as much information as possible.

There will soon be a footprint tarp available (sold separately).


A note on materials

When choosing a tent, there are various factors to weigh. While size and weight are important, the choice of materials is equally essential. Understanding the differences between cotton-based canvas and synthetic materials is key. The trade-offs encompass weight, strength, maintenance (i.e. propensity for mould, sun damage etc), and breathability (condensation).

Outstanding…. Except one thing!

Okay. We’ve owned a Homecamp Tipi for about three years now, so this is a long term review. We’ve used it for several multi-day beach camps around Tassie. It’s all positive except one thing, but I’ll get to that later. Firstly, let’s run down what’s to love. It’s exceptionally well made. The materials, stitching, zips, fittings and parts are all first rate. It’s easy to set up and pack down. One pole. That’s it. Lots of pegs, but it’s all so self explanatory and simple so lots of pegs hardly matters as no time is wasted feeding multiple poles through sleeves or trying to figure it all out. It’s bomb proof. I wouldn’t be surprised if it withstood 150km winds all guyed out. It’s completely waterproof too. We’ve slept soundly and worry free through torrential storms with 100km gusts. It’s cleverly conceived. The dual doors, vents, flyscreens, standing room, interior pockets, attachment points and windows make it extremely livable. The light blocking dark green canvas is a godsend if you want to sleep in past first light or have children who need to nap through the day. It’s a balm for the eyes. In this day and age of shouty colours and the dominance of toxic masculinity branding for outdoor gear, this tent is beautiful in the landscape.

Now for the one drawback. It doesn’t have a dedicated awning or complimentary fly or tarp protected outdoor living and dry entry and exit. Yet. Homecamp! Herein lies the challenge. I have some sound ideas. Get in touch if you’re up for developing a solution.

All in all, a stellar choice for car camping, festivals, and even for glamping operations. Would highly recommend.

Hi Philip, Thanks for taking the time to review the Tipi - it's appreciated to get feedback from customers. Apologies for the slow response - I was waiting to confirm our newly designed awning which took a while to prototype. If you are interested, we are writing a special newsletter on the Tipi and will feature the awning there along with your review as its so thorough. Or you are welcome to email us [email protected] and we can share there. Thanks again! Doron & HC

awesome tipi for festivals and camping

This is the second tent I have bought from Homecamp but I have to say this is now my favourite camping tent. Yes, it's for car camping but it's not too heavy and packs down small. Very easy to set up and a great size tent for the two of us (easily get another person or couple of kids in there). We took it to a couple of festivals this year. you can stand up in it so its easy to get dressed and because the canvas is quite dark you don't wake up with the sun which is a huge bonus.

Hey Mitzi, we are glad you are happy with the Tipi and thank you so much for the review. H.C.

Tipi tent & Nomad stove

Very happy with the quality of products.
Unfortunately we have not yet had the chance to test-run them.
I look forward to reviewing same as soon as we get the time to go camping.

Plenty of space.

It’s an extension of my van when I go camping giving me plenty of space to get dressed and spread out. The Tipi is manageable by one person if setting up on your own and I can physically lift it.

David Alston (Brisbane, AU)

The perfect small tent, manageable and simple to erect. The tent was used for the first time on 29th September, my daughter, three children and me all slept well.
I am missing one guy rope however, could you send me one please.

The best Homecamp tent yet!

This is the third Homecamp tent the family has purchased - an original 4m Flinders in sand for our son, an Under Sky Mesh 4m with blue floor for our daughter, and now for just the two of us, a 3.5m Tipi in sand. The Tipi is well designed, well made and compact - making it the best yet! And that’s saying a lot.
Being a sailor, my only other comment would be to improve the knots which are only loosely formed by the manufacturer. They need to be a real bowline attaching each guy rope to the tent, and a figure-of-eight knot at the end of each guy rope - both to be tightly formed.

Amazing investment.

One of the best purchases I’ve made. It’s an investment.

Tipi review

So firstly I bought a 5 metre Bell tent from you. I love my Bell tent through and through it's amazing. the bell tent would have been amazing in the green colour as it becomes quite light in the mornings. Recently I purchased the TiPi from you. the tipi is not too heavy it is dark upon wake up and we love it!
I'm excited to try my fireplace in the tipi.

Sista (Melbourne, AU)
Tipi tent

I’m a huge fan of the products homecamp bring to us and was excited to have the tipi get added to that list. I have a bell tent from this range also but I’ve always had a thing for tipis.We used it for the first time over Xmas for a few days on French Island and again in Myrtleford. Super easy to put up and she’s a true beauty.. comes with the usual exceptional stamp of good quality these guys put into their products. Love that the bag design has changed to allow easier packup when you’re heading home.

Hey Sista, thanks for the review and positive feedback - very glad you are happy with the Tipi. Team HC.

We were so excited to receive our bundle. The service was good in receiving the package. Set up is so simple and the materials are so durable. Everything about it has been so well thought out. Installing the flashing kit was simple however it would ease my mind if some way to seal the cut canvas was included.
