Perfect for backyard use or car camping trips the 10’ x 10’ Eureka Jade Canyon 6 tent has 3-season durability and a wealth of family-friendly amenities that just might turn even the most reluctant members of the family into camping enthusiasts.
The Jade Canyon 6’s combination of steel bottom poles and aluminum top poles provide the tent with rugged structural support. The freestanding design allows you to pitch the Jade Canyon 6 and then move it around your campsite to find the optimum position eliminating an uncomfortable night's sleep over an exposed root or rock. Stakes are included to secure the tent in place.
The tent provides a voluminous 64 square feet of interior space and a roomy 7’ peak interior height. Internal storage pockets and dual gear lofts (included) provide ample space to stow gear and maximize available floor space. A large front door makes it convenient to enter or exit the tent. NOTE: Due to its awning-style rainfly the Jade Canyon 6 does not provide vestibule entries or external storage space.
An included E! Media Center pocket lets you view notepads and other small electronic devices (not included) from the comfort of your sleeping bag a nice feature for keeping the kids entertained! An integrated port on the side of the tent even allows you to run an electrical cord (not included) through the wall into the Jade Canyon 6’s interior. Reflective panels on the ceiling help to maximize the glow of a camp lantern (not included) when hung from the tent canopy.
Four mesh sidewall windows and a full mesh canopy work in tandem with the awning-style rainfly to enhance crossflow and ventilation. The Jade Canyon 6’s burly 75D StormShield polyester rainfly and bathtub-style floor keep the interior of the tent dry and hold up well to the wear-and-tear of camping.

Real Customer Reviews
- "Great tent for comfort camping for just two"
Likes: For our latest tent upgrade, we wanted a tent with the following qualities ("*" for qualities this tent fulfilled, "-" where it fell short):
* Metal poles (fiberglass poles are heavy and tend to break over time)
- Clips to the poles instead of sleeves, for easier setup
* 10' x 10' floor (to fit two cots side-by-side with room to spare)
* Meshed roof for ventilation (or seeing the sky on clear nights without the fly)
* Windows that let us see out
* Windows that we can open & close from inside
+ optional bonus features if possible:
* more or less vertical walls (again, more space for cots)
- vestibule area or awning over the entrance
- entrances both front & rear
- hinged swing-open door
The Eureka Jade Canyon 6 consistently stood out as the one tent that came closest to fulfilling this. It clearly fulfilled the most important points. Although you still have to feed the two top poles through sleeves instead of using clips, in this case the poles slip through the sleeves so easily that it does not make a difference. No vestibule or awning, but that is not so important with a spacious tent, and we can live without an extra entrance. We gave up on the hinged door -- we saw that only on a few tents from Coleman that fall short in several other respects, and when we actually tried out the hinged door on a friend's tent it did not impress us so much.
We got this as an upgrade to our Eureka Sunrise 9, which in turn was an upgrade to our Eureka Aurora. We liked the Sunrise 9 a lot (it even survived a night of steady 30-40 mile winds, with some additional guyline support), but it got a little cramped for two when we moved up to using cots instead of sleeping on the floor. And eventually, a fiberglass pole on each of those tents broke (which I later repaired).
The Jade Canyon 6 feels tremendously spacious for the two of us. We fit two cots in side-by-side and have plenty of room to spare to get around the cots and do whatever. I have also never had a tent go up so easily -- first time we had it up in minutes, and one person could do this on their own! The windows offer great views and ventilation. We took the Jade Canyon on a two-week trip from Michigan to the Adirondack Mountains in New York, and the tent served us very well throughout.
This tent comes with a few extra amenities, but we had no use for those ourselves. We did not have any electrified sites so did not try the E-Port, but it looks like it would do fine to get power into the tent. Our tent lanterns already shine the light downward, so the E-Luminate panels did nothing useful and instead just blocked the ventilation, we will probably set those aside from now on. We also had no use for the media pocket, but we did use the handy hang-up pockets.
Overall, a great tent for comfort camping for just two; if you need room for several kids, though, you might still need something bigger.
Note that the Eureka Copper Canyon 6 is much the same as the Jade Canyon 6 for substantially less money, but it has fiberglass poles over the top (instead of aluminum), and uses a somewhat lower grade of waterproofing. Pay your money and make your choice.
Finally, Backcounty Edge made made this a great purchase by giving a great deal and free, fast shipping.
Dislikes: - vestibule area or awning over the entrance
- entrances both front & rear-
- hinged swing-open door
- Roomy car camping shelter.
Likes: This tent goes up very easy with two people who had never camped before. Roomy and very sturdy. Got caught in a rain/wind storm while putting this up in Death Valley and was impressed with its durability.
Dislikes: Heavy. No foot print. Otherwise awesome tent for sure.
