Tent Stove Space Requirements
TENT STOVE AREA REQUIREMENTS IN A TENT:
Stoves take up a large area in a tent. The tent stove space requirements will affect the size of tent required for your hunting group as a stove takes the room of a cot and space for one person in a tent.
You must plan on a stove taking up to 7 feet along a wall in your tent.
There is an automatic 2 foot standoff from the front wall due to the stove jack location.
The stove itself is normally around 2 feet in length. There is normally a 3 feet standoff distance from the wood camp stove before you can place a cot or table.
HEAT SAFETY DISTANCE: Always have at least a 2 foot area around your wood camping stove where there are no flammables.
This 2 feet stand off is also required as sometimes the sparks might pop out of the stove air intake openings if there is not a screen covering the openings. Be careful when opening the stove door as occasionally a spark will pop toward you or a small piece of burning wood might fall out of the stove.
A fire mat is needed if you have a floor in your tent.
