Some other companies in their 12 x 14 package have a small stove that will not adequately heat a 12 x 14 tent.  We have a medium size stove that will easily heat a 12 x 14 or a 14 x16.

Extended fly will have stove pipe opening with a tie down flap in the extended section as some people use a stove for cooking outside the tent.


FIRE, water and mildew treated tents only. Provides much more headroom.

WILDERNESS CANVAS IS ARMY DUCK- DOUBLE FILL. The highest quality canvas made. Canvas is made by weaving threads together, crosswise and lengthwise. The Army Duck canvas has 2 threads twisted together making 1 thread. These double twisted threads are woven into the canvas going both crosswise and lengthwise. Twisting 2 threads together into 1 makes Army Duck canvas stronger more durable and also allows the canvas to breath better.  A 10.1 oz Army Duck wall tents are just as strong as a 12 oz Dual Fill.

SHIPPING BAGS for floors, fly, extended fly, porches and cook shacks options are not large enough to be used for storage bags.

Recommend you read TENT SET UP LOCATIONS before you set up your tent to avoid wind issues that can destroy your tent.

FIRE RESISTANT CANVAS: Meets CPAI 84 fire retardant code. If a tent is not specifically treated for fire resistance it will burn quickly. Fire Resistant canvas will only burn when there is a flame source present on the canvas. When you remove the flame source the wall tent will stop burning. However, there is no wall tent made that will not burn.


There are discounted prices on the following accessories if ordered with a Wilderness Tent as I am passing on my reduced shipping costs to you.

5" Inline spark arrestor $50 (-$22), stove fire mat $50 (-$15), stove heat shield $50 (-$15), rubber caps for frame legs (-$10 per set ), tent frame bags $28 (-$10), tent coat hangars $35 (-$10), and rebar stakes (-$10) per dozen.


There are thousands of needle holes in your tent and occasionally a needle hole does not close when the tent is wetted down. The only way to insure your tent does not leak is to put a fly on your tent.

When you receive your tent, set it up, and completely wet it down. Especially on the seams, both inside and outside seams on your tent. Wetting down your tent will cause the canvas to shrink and help close the thousands of needle holes in your tent.

Click SLEEPING CAPACITY for each size of tent. It is sometimes difficult to determine the correct size required and hopefully sleeping capacity info page will be of some assistance.

Note. If ordering a screen door option, 2 side windows are included in price. Front screen door option will have a back window and 2 side windows. Front and back screen door option will have 2 side windows.



are worth $200 in options for some other tent companies you will see on the internet.

    • 5 FOOT WALLS. Full 5'. Some companies only have 4' 8" side walls.  Walls are measured from the outside of tent.
        • WALLS ARE FULL 5' OF CANVAS. Some unusual designed tents have only 4' walls with 18" of vinyl sewn onto the bottom of the tent.  The 18" sod cloth cannot be staked down and wind blows under the sod cloth creating a tent that can't be heated properly in cold weather. Additionally, the sod cloth will flap in the wind making for a less than an enjoyable camping experience.
        • Tents must have the canvas walls touching the ground in order to stake the walls to the ground to prevent wind blowing under the tent walls. 

          Windows are 30" x 30".  Not small triangle windows that provide much less ventilation.

    • FREE BACK DOOR OR BACK WINDOW.Back door only on 16 x 20 and 16 x 24 Wilderness canvas tents.

    • STOVE JACK.  5 1/2" fire proof tent opening in roof to allow stove pipe to go through. Only single wall pipe is necessary. 6 inch stove jack available by cutting just before the 6" pattern on the stove jack. Most stoves require a 5 1/2 inch stove jack. 5" is too small. 
  • STORM FLAP/COLORADO DOOR. 8" storm flap with buckle protects front & back door zippers.

  • FREE REINFORCED EAVE WITH WEBBING ENTIRE LENGTH OF EAVE. Webbing is on bottom of the eave to allow rain and snow to run off eave easily. You put much pressure on eaves when staking out the tent with ropes. Webbing sewn into canvas eaves is so much stronger then just canvas eaves.
  • STEEL D RINGS SEWN INTO WEBBING. Much stronger than other tents with just metal grommets pressed into canvas. Grommets can easily tear out of canvas eaves.

  • DOUBLE LAYER OF CANVAS ON RIDGE. Reinforces tent ridge.

  • VINYL SOD CLOTH. 10" vinyl sod cloth sewn onto bottom of walls.

  • TENT BAG. Very large.

  • RIDGE OPENINGS FOR LODGE POLE. Ridge opening on each ridge end to allow lodge pole set up.

  • FRONT ZIPPERED DOOR, YKK #10. The best heavy duty zipper made.

  • 200 FEET OF ROPES AND 20 TENSIONERS                                                                                                   OPTIONS AVAILABLE

At the bottom of this page are OPTION PHOTOS and explanations.
Options include porches, cook shacks, fly's (protective tarp), floors. 14 x16 water and mildew porch is not available. However, a fire treated porch is available.

I designed both the Wilderness and Yukon stoves. Both stoves are identical except one is round and one is square. It is all personal preference which stove you like best-the round Yukon stove or the square Wilderness stove. Both the Wilderness and Yukon stoves have a gasket on the door which makes them air tight and more efficient. The stove package includes a rain cap spark arrestor which is not included in many other stove packages. The rain cap prevents rain and snow going down your stove pipe and into your stove.

 FLY included in package is a tarp that protects your tent roof and has opening that matches your tent opening. 200 feet of rope and rope tensioners included.

FLOOR can be substituted for fly in the package. Floor is an 18 oz vinyl and is only available in the stake in model. Floor is also available for purchase if you want both the fly and floor. If you are on a limited budget and can afford only either the fly or floor, I recommend the fly. The fly is more important because it protects the tent from stove sparks, adds another moisture barrier, keeps the canvas roof clean, and protects the roof from UV rays. You can buy the floor later. If you buy the fly later, you will probably already have a damaged or degraded roof.

8' EXTENDED FLY (8" longer) fly is an upgrade option if you want a covered area in front of your tent. 200 feet of rope and rope tensioners included.

I strongly recommend you read my recommendations regarding placing wall tents on a platform, click platforms.

DO NOT MAKE A PLATFORM UNTIL YOU MEASURE THE WIDTH AND LENGTH OF TENT PURCHASED. Sometimes the width is up to 8" wider and length is 6" longer.

I strongly recommend (click) tent frame leg supports on platforms which are screwed onto the platform. Wood platforms are smooth surfaces compared to the ground. You don't want to have tent frame legs slide off a platform during high winds. Rich.

Leaving a tent set up for extended periods of time. Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough".  The trough is the area at the bottom of roof just before the side horizontal tent frame poles. Canvas should be very tight on frame if set up for extended periods of time and a fly used.  Fly should also be tight to avoid water and snow in an eave trough.  Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.
