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.
