How Do You Get a Camping Tent in Sims 4?

The Sims 4 has a great outdoor experience for players that enjoy camping. There are several ways to get a camping tent in the game, some of which require a bit of effort while others are simple and straightforward.

Buying a Tent

The most obvious way to get a tent in the game is to buy one from build mode. You can find tents in different sizes and shapes, from tiny two-person tents to large family-sized tents.

In the build mode menu, select “buy” and then look for “tents” in the search bar. After you choose a tent, you can place it on an empty lot or on one of your existing lots.

Creating your own Tent

If you want to make your own tent without spending any money, then you’ll need some additional materials like fabric and wood planks. To buy these items, go into build mode and select “buy” again.

Look for “fabric” or “wood planks” in the search bar and add them to your inventory. Once you have all the materials, go into build mode again and select the “Create Objects with Materials” option under the “Create” tab. You should be able to use these materials to create your own custom-made tent.

Finding Pre-Built Tents

Another way to get tents is by searching for pre-built ones on other lots or worlds that come with pre-built objects such as tents or campers. To do this, go into map view mode and look for any lots that have a tent already set up on them. You can then visit these lots and if they allow it, take the tent from there without having to pay anything extra.


Getting a camping tent in The Sims 4 is not difficult at all; there are several options available depending on how much effort you want to put into it or how much money you’re willing to spend. As long as you have access to fabric and wood planks, you can make your own custom-made tent or find pre-built ones that others have left behind on their lots or worlds.
