Reliably sturdy in harsh conditions, the Coleman Lakeside 6 Geodesic is not only exceptional value for money, it is also a remarkably versatile dome tent.
The Geodesic frame creates a sturdy structure with ample interior space, while the fully enclosed front vestibule combines with an extended rear vestibule to provide sleeping room for six with freedom to stand inside. Adding to the interior is a front awning and multiple access points with double doors on the front, rear and sides.
Equipped with the Coleman Weathertec System, the Lakeside 6 Geodesic is reliably weatherproof, and provides substantial ventilation through the doors and side windows.
Have used this a few times now. This is an awesome tent in dry weather, very spacious and stable. Easy to put up with two people. Unfortunately it seems to have been discontinued by Coleman.
I only have two gripes. The particular unit we got had very sticky zips. Can probably be fixed with some lubricant.
We also noticed that the zips on the two side windows were allowing water through in heavy rain. For that reason we'll probably try to avoid camping in heavy rain with this tent, although a tarp or some tape would probably cover the offending seams.
Strong, tick material, spacious
Have used 2 times, once in winter and other during summer, nothing to complaint, going great 👍🏻
The best tent ever.Very roomy and you will stay dry😊
Superb value for money. Easy to set up, very spacious. Great family tent.
Bought for our son for xmas, we had to assemble for him as he was arriving late to camp site. Due to size assembles a little differently but follow directions and look at x on tent and no problem at all.
Plenty of ventilation and Windows, even all fitted back into bag when packed up🤗
We had some serious wind and tent held firm!
Great tent for 4 or 5 guys to go camping in or small family, good head room!
We have used this tent twice now (are still camping actually, while we write this review). We are exceptionally happy with our Coleman Lakeside Geo 6 tent. All of the air vents help make it more comfortable in the Summer heat and when the bugs get unbearable the front area is very useful. There is just the two of us and our dog using it at the moment, but it is spacious without being comically large. We have room for all of our gear, and still room to move around. The multiple entry points are handy too. It has rained where we are also and there have been no leaks. We highly recommend it.
We haven't used the tent yet, but assembled it at back yard to see that everything is ok.
Very bad instructions!!! Open before you go on camping to save the time on the day. Apart from that, the triangle windows (seen in the photo) can't be blocked from the inside, and therefore the room doesn't suit for sleeping.
Everything else is vey good and very roomy.
I live in Canberra and bought this tent for Holiday season. I was after some thing which could accommodate 4 easily. This tent is very spacious, erects very quickly and is small enough to fit boot of car.
We used it this weekend camping trip (12-13 Nov) first night it rained for 4 hours , we stayed completely dry and there was no leakage. Next night it was windy and tent stood firm.
I recommend this tent for those how are after medium size tent.
Thanks for good service. I live in vic. I order tent on monday. I got it on wednesday! I had problem When I set tent up to ensure it. Elastic string in the main pole snaped... so I sent email to snowy abou that. They just sent entire replacement set immediately. It's impressive! good price, good service, good enough for my family. ^^
According to the spec, the sleeping area is 230 x 240 cm. But you have answered to the very first question that it is actually 330 x 240. Could you confirm which one is correct?
The correct dimensions of the main room are 230cm x 240cm, as listed in the specs. Sorry for the confusion!
Thanks Lisa. However I have some doubt ... looking at the picture, based on the proportion the main room seems bigger than the vestibule. If the length of the main room is 230cm, the vestibule would be 300cm long... I am in a bit of hurry to order one but it only suits me if the room is 330 x 240. Would you mind to double check the dimensions? Thanks.
I can totally see where the confusion is - this tent was also confusing for us too!
Our floor plan was based on Coleman's specs but on looking at the tent in person, the shape of it is deceptive as both ends taper off which reduces the amount of sleeping space inside the tent.
The vestibule measures 180cm long and 230cm wide, while the sleeping area in the main room is 240cm long, while the tapered end section measures 80cm.
The reason we don't include the end part of the room in the sleeping area dimensions is because it is not enough space to fit a mat, or person to use.
We've carefully measured the display mode and updated the floor plan so it should be very accurate now.
Thank you Emily for the accurate dimensions of the floor plan. Really appreciated for the information.
We are looking at getting the Coleman Queen Quickbed and two Colman XL Single Quickbeds. It looks like we could fit the queen in one of the rooms and the two singles in the other vestibule area. Is that correct?
I've just had a look at our display Lakeside 6 Geodesic, and I reckon we might need to update our floor plan as it makes the vestibule look slightly larger than it actually is.
If you have a look at the third image linked above, you can get a better idea of the shape and size of the vestibule - as it isn't a square, you you will just be able to squeeze a XL Single Quickbed, but two wouldn't fit due to the shape.
You will be able to fit a Queen Quickbed in the sleeping area, but you may want to consider smaller camp mats as they are easier to fit in this tent.
Does this tent come with everything you need to camp with? Don't need to buy anything else to set it up? Pegs, fly bare etc
The tent comes with everything you need to get started Marlena, although I would recommend that you purchase a tarp to go under the tent to protect the floor. All pegs and guy ropes are included, although if you’re likely to go camping somewhere that the ground is quite hard you may like to purchase some more heavy duty pegs to make life easier.
Hi Snowys I am planning to buy 2 double airbeds to use in the main room of this Tend. Could you confirm 2 double airbeds can fit properly? Otherwise, could you advice best airbeds to use inside the Tent and can accommodate a family of 4?
The Coleman Lakeside 6 has a sleeping area that’s 240L x 230W so you won’t be able to fit two double airbeds (or double mats in general).
You may have to consider single self-inflating mats such the Explore Planet Earth Sim Camper F100 which are 200L x 66W cm.
We’d recommend considering using the vestibule as a sleeping area as well, as you may struggle with four singles in the sleeping area.
Hi Sue, there are storage pockets in the vestibule area, the main room does not have storage pockets but it does have a gear hammock on the roof which would be suitable for small, lightweight items. Hope this helps.
I find the instructions vague and feel that I'm not erecting it properly as it doesn't seem to "fit" well. Any other resources on assembly available?
Thanks so much! Which one is correct about the overall weight? I found in Coleman Australia site, this tent weighs 26.1kg (!), but here weighs just 18kg ?
I want to know how to put the tent up before I decide to buy
Explain the water head rating. This tent has 2000mm water head rating, is that sufficient for heavy down pours?
Hi we are two people just wondering how long this tent takes to set up and how difficult it is (ie tension of poles etc)? We would be looking to take short weekend trips so are looking for something relatively easy to set up and put down.
1. Does this tent have mosquito nets on all doors & windows? 2. Is it cool in summer - ie. plenty of ventilation? 3. Is it easy for one person to erect? How long? 4. Is freight free? If not how much to Lane Cove in Sydney, or is there local pick up in Sydney? 5. What window is at the far end , not seen in pic? 6. Does it have flooring throughout to prevent bull ants getting in?
Hi, do you guys have tent poles for this tent as parts ?
Hi according to the coleman website, this tent is 26 kg but here it's 18 kg. Could you clarify this? Cheers.
Also can you confirm the divider is fly screen that can be zipped up. Does it also have a solid wall you can close. Thanks
I just have to make a correction here, the main room is actually 230cm x 240cm.
