I would recommend that you practice setting this up indoors before you take it to a camp site and try to set it up. The first time I set it up was at a site on a windy day--we ended up having quite a wrestling match. I like this tent--it's a good tent for the money. Just be aware that it holds heat, so I don't recommend it for hot-weather camping. Also, I'm not convinced it would hold up well in heavy winds, rain, or snow.
