Best Tent Heaters for Cold Weather Camping

A tent heater makes winter camping easier. A family adventure in the woods can be a shiver-inducing experience when it is cold at night.

Camping in cold weather can be challenging as far as keeping warm is concerned. Tent heaters are another way to keep your body temperature under control, in addition to layering up, sitting next to the fire, and investing in the right sleeping bag.

Throughout this article, we’ll help you choose the best tent-safe heater for winter camping.

Best Tent Heaters for Cold Weather

1- Mr. Heater Portable Buddy

The Portable Mr heater I’ve seen is by far the best I’ve ever seen. It produces clean-burning heat at almost 100% efficiency and can be used indoors and outdoors for both.

It takes approximately 3-4 hours for the propane tank to fill. There is also a fold-down handle to facilitate portability. Using this heater is extremely easy, and it produces a nice amount of heat and also offers up to 9,000 BTUs, similar to what would be required to heat an area of 225 to 250 square feet.

The device provides a powerful power output of between 6000 and 12000 BTU. It can also be used with disposable cylinder tanks or can be directly connected to a gas supply using swivel regulators. 

The product is a good bargain in terms of warranty, but one downside is that it does not work well at high altitudes.

Pros
  • A variety of heat settings
  • Protect yourself from burns with this wire guard
  • There are numerous safety features
  • It provided good warmth for the tent
  • It can heat up to 225 to 250 square feet.
Cons
  • N/A

2- Honeywell HHF360V

Due to its 360-degree design, this Honeywell portable heater makes a great tent heater, as you can place it directly in the middle of the tent and it will distribute heat evenly. This device also has other features that make it one of the best options on our list: an auto shut off if tipped over or at high temperatures; a programmable thermostat (you choose when to activate heat); a safety drip tray that catches melted snow from melting ice packs before they damage floors and carpets etc.; easy-carry handle grip for moving around easily while heating is turned On.

This electric portable heater is a safer choice than using propane, as it has an additional tip-over shutoff function.

At 1500W, you will need to rely on the campground’s power or bring a generator if your camping trip requires it.

The heater headed up the room ( basement ) in 20 minutes! It is also a great option for kids because of the kind of material it is made from and it shuts off automatically when moved.

Pros
  • Two heat settings + adjustable thermostat
  • A great choice for kids
  • Designed to prevent overheating and tipping
  • A timer that includes one, two, four, and eight-hour settings
  • Small but portable and powerful room heater.
Cons
  • The fan is a bit noisy

3- Texsport Portable Outdoor Propane

The next best portable and affordable heater is an export heater. The connection takes less than 10 seconds. It has a red push button, that we thought was an electronic button, but it is just a “primer” button that has to be held in while lighting with a match. 

Winter backpackers will love the top pick, especially since it was specially created for them. When crawling into your tent at night, this small, lightweight sleeping bag is great for keeping you warm. It’s a great choice for people who want something comfortable but not bulky.

Must Check: Best Lightweight Tent For Backpacking

If the flame goes out, the heater will automatically shut off, as it has an auto shut-off feature –  but be careful not to set your sleeping bag alight while moving around since there is no tip-over safety feature.

Excellent value for the price. Even if it’s 3 or 4 degrees outside, we can keep the tent warm, and we can dress appropriately.

Pros
  • Extremely lightweight
  • The regulator can easily adjustable the range
  • A good value for money
  • An easy-to-use, portable, and reliable device
Cons
  • Contains fewer safety features than bigger models
