Be the hero of your hiking group with the Big Ass Camp Tarp! This oversized ten-foot by thirteen-foot tarp is large enough to pitch over a picnic table or group eating area. It can also be pitched over your tent to create dry porch area on either side.

Turn a miserable wet day in camp into a relaxing day watching the raindrops from under a dry tarp. 

This tarp pitches best in a diamond configuration with two long lines clipped around trees, and two short lines staked to the ground.

This tarp ships with a medium stuff sack, 50 feet of 2.0mm Yellow Z-Line cord, and 2 Mini-D Carabiners to clip around trees.

If you prefer to pitch this tarp in an A-frame configuration using all eight linelocs, you will likely need to add an additional 50ft spool of 2mm Yellow Z-Line cord.

Big Ass Camp Tarp Instructions

This tarp pitches easiest in a diagonal orientation with two long guy-lines clipped around trees, and two shorter guylines at the opposite corners staked into the ground. It is meant to be pitched over a picnic table, group area, or over a tent.

Recommended guy-lines cut from the included 50 foot spool of cord:

Diagonal Ridgeline Corners - 2x 16 feet (4.88m) w/ carabiners to clip around trees.

Opposite Corners - 2x 6 feet (1.83m) staked into the ground.

It is recommended that you carry the remaining 6 feet (1.83 m) with loops tied to both ends to add as an extension to whichever line needs extra length to reach a tree. It will come in handy.

If you prefer to pitch this tarp in an A-frame configuration using all eight attachment points, you may need to purchase an additional spool of 2mm yellow Z-line cord.
