Just received my tent.  Very, very impressed with quality and price.  Tents available in the territory are much higher and not the  same quality.  James

Hi.  Wanted to say thanks to you and your staff for the help in getting my first wall tent.  Glad I went with the 16x20 with the additional porch.  Live in Alberta and the spring can be cold at night.  So the purchase of the Wilderness 5 stove was great to get us through the cool nights.  The picture  is of our second time out with the tent. For such a large tent it is very easy to put up, as my two young girls and I are able to get it set up in about 1/2 hour.  Anyone looking for superb customer service should give you guys a shout.  Will send more pictures throughout the 2014 season.  Thanks again and happy camping. Rob

Hi there, I have one of your wilderness 12x14 wilderness tents that I have lived in it for the last 2 summers and it has been awesome. Thanks for your help and such a great product.  Jared

 Mar, 2014.

I bought a wilderness tent from Canvas Tent Shop in 2013. Great tent.  I want to buy 2 more tents. - John, Yukon Territory.

I received my Wilderness Tent in March. Three of my friends and I are very impressed with the quality of canvas and workmanship.  My friends will be calling you soon to purchase 3 tents. Mike, NWT.

I really like my spike tent and fly.  Easy  and quick to set up with 2 people. Bill, Alberta.

Spike tents are often used by individuals who are seeking a tent with a sewn in floor and is relatively light weight compared to a wall tent.

Our  spike tent is different from other spike tents because we have 3 support poles holding up the roof.  Other spike tents normally have only 1 center pole support. The 1 center pole support spike tent has only standing room in the center near the center pole.

Our Selkirk spike tent with the 3 poles is a much better design as it allows much more headroom.  The front and back door has a 6' 4" support pole which allows significant headroom the entire length of the tent.  Watch the spike tent video to get a better appreciation of the headroom in our spike tent.

We have recently added a new size to our Selkirk Spike Tent, the 14 x 14.  The 14 x14 will accommodate 4 people very comfortably.  However,  the 14 x14 can house up to 7  people but there would not be much room except for the cots.
