Other Considerations When Planning for a Canopy Tent
- Tents must be secured to the ground with stakes and straps in most instances. When measuring your planned location, allow at least 8′ perimeter for these stakes and straps.
- Stakes may be driven to a depth of 36″, so utilities will be marked. Buried structures (septic tanks, fuel storage, sprinklers) must be disclosed.
- Tents must be 10 feet from a permanent structure.
- Overhead objects such as power lines and tree branches must be avoided.
