What is a bell tent?

Best Bell Tents

If you don’t recognise the name bell tent you will definitely recognise its shape and style. These pretty tents feature a central support pole to support the canvas which gives it that classic shape we know and love. The entrance is formed with an A-frame pole and its guy ropes provide stability.

Originally the bell tent was known as the Sibley tent and was invented during the American Civil War by Henry Hopkins Sibley, a Brigadier General from Louisiana. He invented it after viewing the Native American Tipi on his long expeditions in the American Old West. Today bell tents are slightly different using modern treated canvas’ making them waterproof and breathable. This offers the modern camper a more practical and luxurious experience.
