Eureka Apex 2 -
The Eureka Apex 2 is a lightweight 2 person tent with 2 doors and great ventilation. Its hybrid style (½ double wall and ½ single wall) create a light yet functional design. Because 3 walls are waterproof the fly can be smaller and that means weight savings. The portion of the tent covered by the fly is no-see-um mesh for great ventilation and stargazing opportunities. The sturdy shockcorded fiberglass frame is durable and packs down to a manageable size. Small batwing semi vestibules cover the mesh vents in the doors for great ventilation even in rain and provide limited gear protection. Each door is equipped with a waterproof storm/privacy flap.


  • The tent’s free standing and shockcorded fiberglass frame with post & grommet assembly is lightweight and easy to set up.


  • Freestanding design is simple to set up and take down

Fantastic tent.

As a child and teen I was an avid camper, and after four years in the army, have recently got back into it. After shopping around, looking up, researching and reviewing dozens of tents, I eventually decided to purchase this model. I love it.

I hike and camp with my dog, a small beagle, and this tent has more than enough room for us, and another person. I've taken it on four trips; a one night, 2 two nights and a three night. Very light, takes up minimal space on my pack. The three night trip had substantial wind and rain, with temperatures in the low 30s during the nights. I stayed dry the entire time. The nights are rather chilly, but I also don't use a sleeping bag so I may take some blame for that.

The twin vestibules are magnificent, plenty of space, and fantastic fold-away options. I re-set my tent after I found which way the wind and rain was coming (very easy to pop up stakes, rotate the tent and restake) and had an open view of the lake I was staying at, remainig perfectly dry and comfortable inside. I also set up my camp stove and cooked breakfast under the folded vestibule one morning and everything worked fine.

My dog stays in the tent, and her claws have not punctured or damaged the fabric in any way, but she's about 23 pounds, so not a heavy dog.

However, the stakes that come with the tent are worthless. Bent and mangled them the very first trip. I bought eight 10 inch steel coleman stakes after that trip and they have worked fine since.

Honestly, I would give this tent 5 stars, but I know if you spend more money, you will get a better tent. I think you'd have to spend at least another hundred though, this tent really is fantastic, taking it out for another trip this weekend.

Pretty good tent.


-Lightweight, carried two of them by the draw string for a couple miles with my arm at 90 degrees.
(To be fair, I am in phenominal shape. Describeing a level of fitness if difficult, but I find log PT fun.(Carrying a tree trunk over the heads of 3-4 guys.)(Lookup a picture)
-Easy to setup, I had both setup(by myself) by the time it took two people to set up thiers.
-Good venilation.(Would have been better if there had been a single breeze.)
-"Roomy" Beats a lean to.
-Rained down on me pretty hard and the inside of the tent stayed dry.(I was 2 miles away when the rain started)
-Lots of well placed pockets for storage.

-8 stakes. Need 10 to also do the guy lines.
-No strap on the outside of the carrying bag.(Like a foldout chair has) Would have been nice.

-Get extra stakes and do the guy lines. It will help keep drips from "rolling" into your tent.
(Besides helping if it gets windy)
-Take the time to set your tent up "ideally". Like it would be in a showroom. That way, your rainfly will keep all the rain out and you won't need to adjust midstorm.

Fantastic tent.

I researched and reviewed literally hundreds of tents before finally settling on this one. The first time I set it up, I broke one of the plastic snaps holding the rainfly down, but that was my own fault, I tend to treat things rougher than I generally should. A little DIY work got it good as new in a few minutes as well.
I've taken it on three trips now, car camping and backpacking twice and I love it. The last trip I spent three days in contant rain with some heavy winds, inside the tent everything stayed dry.
The vestibules are great, they have plenty of room, and provide an ample amount of cover for gear.
As for warmth, most of the nights I stayed it was between 30-40 degrees outside, using only a foam sleeping pad and my old army blanket, I was chilly, but fine. I imagine with a sleeping bag, I would have been far more than comfortable.
Each time I went out, I discovered something new I had previously looked over, adding to my love of this tent.
Overall, I don't think a better tent can be found for less than 150$

Good Value and Quality

Nice product and priced right with the sale. I am 6'4" and need the extra room, plenty for a single with backpack gear, two is okay as long as the packs are outside. Very easy to set up, did not even look at the directions. It was actually pouring rain when we set it up. Went together quick. The fly needs a little work as it does not cover the entire doors on each side. So getting in and out in the rain would let water enter the tent. Great bath tub floor design. We were literally in a puddle and no water came through from underneath. I would recommend this product.

Backpacking Tent

Purchashed the tent for lightweight backpacking adventures, could not have found a better tent! The dual doors are a great design. I am awake way before anyone else, no climbing over everyone to sneak out of the tent to start the breakfast of the mornings. However, I wish the rain fly would stretch a little further from the door. A small item to deal with considering the tent has all the other qualities I wanted.

The only downside about the tent that I've found so far is that the bottom is relatively thin = bad idea to wear shoes inside when it's setup on a graveled campground. It'll wear out fast unless you put a tarp under it.

It's inside space was great. I'm 6 foot plus and it fit me well with plenty of room for another person (or even two more persons).

Very good tent

This tent is great for backpacking which I do along the appalachian trail. It has an enormous amount of space considering how small it is when stuffed in the outer bag. While earning my eagle scout we only used Eureka tents. That's all I use now as a 30 yr old backpacker. I am pleased with this tent.

Great for biking-camping

Wanted a lightweight yet durable tent for hauling on my bicycle for long self contained rides. This works great. Carried it on my bicycle all week during a 8 day bike ride across Iowa (RAGBRAI). Love this tent! Works great for two people, take turns carrying it as it is a little over 5 lbs.

Great for one person with gear

We had five straight days of clear skies and cold nights. I was very pleased with the ease of use. It seems that it would be quite cramped with 2 people with even minimal duffel, riding boots, hat, sleeping bag... but perhaps it could be done.

Awesome tent for Boy Scouts

These tents were purchased for a Boy Scout troop and they have perfomed perfectly. A little heavy for prolonged hiking adventures but work well for weekend campouts or limited hiking. Sturdy and well constructed, these tents have taken a beating and still perform as advertised.

Negative Reviews:

Mistaken design - don't buy it

My sons and I used it for Philmont and the training hikes for it. The fly "vestibule" is basically open to the rain, with only about a foot or so that's far enough into the angle to create an "awning" effect, so it is completely and utterly useless at keeping the rain from getting any gear wet that's in the vestibule. Also, the zipper to open the tent and climb out starts on the non-awning-covered end. The instant you try to crawl out of the tent in the rain, the tent starts to fill with water. This is a colossally stupid design and I regret spending the money on the tent. I tried calling the manufacturer to complain and get a refund and their response was no, so I let them know that my reviews were going to be bad. DON'T BUY THIS TENT!

Buy something else

I used this tent in the rain and cold and awoke the next day with the inside walls wet with condensation. The fly only partially covers (I thought from the picture the other half was rolled up but not the case). The half-fly blocks out half the sun so that in the heat you roast. In the rain it means you cant fully open the ventilation windows as it'll rain through half the window. The fly on the sides arches so this also does not block out the light/heat. The half ventilation windows don't let in much breeze, I have to keep the door half open - bugs or heat. This is a bad tent design and I wish I could return it for something else.

Sadly this tent leaked

While I gave this a great review after a 5 day dry horsepacking trip, I now have to write following an 8 day trip with an all night rain and several afternoon into evening rains. The tent bottom leaked (with ground cloth, tent bottom and silver emergency blanket set up) and the sides leaked where the rain fly provided no protection. Happily, Campmor has been very helpful in allowing me to return the tent.

OK tent

This is an ok Tent. It was easy to set up and the poles appear to be ok. Used it for the first time in strong wind. The fly is an issue on the short sides the wind went right through the tent. You have to set this tent up with the lower fly perpendicular to the wind direction.

good tent

I am concerned about the water condensation. We'll see the next time I use the tent if water is a problem.
