At 100 square feet, the Eureka Copper Canyon has more practical floor space than the typical dome style tent.
As a cabin tent style, it is designed to shelter four to five persons, with room to spare.
It would suit a small family group or two couples.
This tent is easy to set up, making it ideal for the inexperienced, or first-time camper.
As a cut-down version of the huge family tents, it’s easier to handle too.
It only weighs just over 23 pounds.
This popular Eureka Tent has a neat 10-foot by 10-foot configuration.
With a 7-foot centre height, even a basketball player would be comfortable moving around inside.
The secret comfort ingredient is the straight sides which let you push your cots and other gear closer to the walls to create more space and ease of movement.
The Eureka Copper Canyon has many more features geared for a comfortable camping trip.
- A big side-opening D-shaped door for easy access.
- Zipper covers for better weather-proofing.
- Four large zippered windows.
- Windows open for excellent visibility and ventilation.
- Windows close for maximum privacy.
- Mesh screens to keep out the smallest insects.
- A handy sweep-out point for easy housekeeping.

A feature of the Copper Canyon is a bathtub style floor that wraps up the sides of the tent.
This keeps the seams clear of the ground and stops water getting in.
Heavy duty zippers are covered for extra protection against the weather.
The rain fly features clear-panel skylights and provides brims over the front and rear windows.
A special port allows allows an extension cord into the tent without compromising your comfort.
The windows are designed for maximum flexibility.
Four generous sized windows allow for all-round visibility, and are meshed to keep out the bugs.
If privacy is your priority, the windows are all zippered and can be easily closed.
The Eureka Copper Canyon is very well ventilated because the four windows give you control, whichever direction the breezes shift.
Despite the straight sides, this tent will remain well anchored in windy conditions.
The vertical side of this cabin target present a target for the wind, but no need to worry.
Included in the package are six steel and fibreglass poles that fit into sleeves during the set-up process.
These are bolstered by frame clips and ring-and-pin assemblies.
Nickel sliders and durable zippers also ensure years of trouble-free camping.
A small downside: for some campers is that the floor of this tent might not be tough enough to stand up to the use of camping furniture such as cots.
If this is a concern, especially if setting up on stony ground, the purchase of a suitably sized tarp to place under the floor, will provide peace of mind.
A common complaint is that the tent pegs, or stakes, that come with this tent, are not up to scratch.
Again, if in doubt, this is easily fixed by buying some extra steel stakes, which are pretty inexpensive anyway.
On the upside: nobody should have a problem in setting up the Eureka Copper Canyon.
Just remember these tips: when setting up and taking down the tent, the stakes should be the first and last thing installed and removed.
If you take the stakes out before the poles, you might end up chasing the tent through the camping ground if the breeze picked up.
Also, always use the guy lines, which are a necessity with this shape of tent.
If you don’t want wasted space, the Eureka Copper Canyon 10 is the right size family tent with the optimum size to weight ratio.
