The Northstar 10P DarkRoom Tent features new dark room technology that blocks sunlight to keep the tent darker if you want to sleep while the sun is up, and also reduces how much the tent heats up during the day. Perfect for families who like to sleep in!


The Coleman Instant Up Northstar 10P Dark Room Tent introduces the new Dark Room technology that reduces light, reduces heat and allows you to sleep longer whilst camping! Sticking strongly with the frame from the ever popular Instant Up series, the Coleman Instant Up Northstar 10P Dark Room Tent has a special coating on the fly (the Dark Room patented fabric treatment) which blocks 95% of sunlight and keeps the inside approx. 5 degrees cooler, meaning you'll be cooler during the day and warmer at night allowing you to sleep for longer! Sleeping up to 10 adults, the ultra-fine mesh throughout the tent allows for plenty of ventilation!

The Northstar 10P is the perfect instantly family cabin tent featuring all the benefits needed to suit a family with the convenience of a fast to set up the frame. The Instant-Up Hub frame design allows for a quick set up with the integrated pre-attached frame and takes just 3 minutes to set up. The central living space and two side bedrooms are incredibly spacious, and the front door can also be pitched out as 2 pole awning with the included awning poles for extra shade. Packing down just as quickly as setting up, the Coleman Instant Up Northstar 10P Dark Room Tent includes a heavy duty carry bag for easy storage and transport!

PLEASE NOTE: The Coleman Instant Up Northstar 10P Dark Room Tent does not come with red pinch-free clips on poles. This modification has not changed the integrity of the frame.

Coleman Instant Up Northstar 10P Dark Room Tent

We bought this to start our family camping adventures. Our kids, 11,9 and 4 couldn’t wait to test it out so spent the last 7 nights in the back garden! The setup was really quick-20 minutes from start to finish, in the dark, is pretty good. It rained really hard for 4 of the nights and it help up perfectly. There was condensation build up inside, but we probably should have opened the windows a little. Definitely worth buying.

This tent is AWESOME!!!! My husband and I put it up first time, from unzipping the bag to finish (without instructions) in 15 minutes......without arguing!!! So easy! Once up, it was more than big enough for our family of 6 and the blackout is very effective. We took it down even quicker in 3 steps (unpeg, poles down, unclip main bars) and then I even put the tent and the top cover into the bag by myself, without assistance. I would HIGHLY recommend this tent ❤️❤️

Great tent - Plenty of room and the it is very dark and great for keeping temps down and a sleep in. It has a massive awning so you can leave the gazebo at home if its a short trip, just need to invest in some spring loaded guy ropes to keep it stable in the wind / rain. There are heaps of peg down points on the fly and the base so you can really secure it down or pop a few in here and there for an overnighter with good weather foretasted. Its quick to put up and quicker to pull down and actually fits back in the bag after the trip. The only downside is that it is very heavy so if you are camping some distance from your vehicle it would be a two person lift.

First off, this is a good tent for the price, as long as you accept its limitations. I bought one and was fortunate enough to get some rain at home during the test run. The awnings quickly filled with water and would have damaged the tent had i not been there to save it. This tent has awnings on all four sides, but NOT ONE is suitable to repel water. If it starts raining during the night you have to get up and disassemble the awning to save the tent. Useless. nowhere on the product does it say that the awning is for shade only and as the store told me when i returned it, apparently it is accepted common knowledge that tent awnings are not waterproof. Something that was news to me! live and learn! Also, it is true that you can set up the "tent" in three minutes. But the fly, guides and awnings quickly push that out to over 30 minutes for one person. The quick erect poles are better then fiddling with typical poles, but its certainly not much faster then a normal tent. More misinformation from Coleman, its only instant if you plan to use the tent without the fly. Perhaps someone should tell Coleman about rain? However, i got my money back as there was also a decent sized hole in one of the mesh screens. i am glad i'm not stuck with that tent. in the end it saved me from itself by being faulty. its a shame as the tent really did seem to be of a decent quality, i wouldn't call it cheap. The reason I gave it two stars instead of one is that despite it not being weather proof and not Instant up like it claims, it is a decent quality and a low price. I loved the dark lining.

We used the Coleman Instant Up 10P Northstar tent for the first time over Easter... What a great tent! Easy to setup (and more importantly pack up), kept the rain out and was very sturdy in gusty winds. The darkroom fabric in the fly is great for letting the kids sleep in. Highly recommended!
