This Floating Tent Is Every Camper's Dream Come True.

Do you ever feel like just floating away and getting lost in nature? Well with the floating tent by SmithFly you can. Most people love camping, but they hate bringing bulky equipment along on their hike or setting up a tent. This nifty invention relieves any camper's worst fears, so the experience can be more pleasant. It may very well be the best camping invention to date. The Ohio-based company claims that with the Shoal Tent "the world is your waterbed." That's a huge understatement given that you can sleep, read, eat, relax, and cuddle while you drift away down a lake or a river. So, read up and then try one out and float your way across the river.

The SmithFly Shoal tent is every bit as fun as it seems to be.

You can spend the whole day hiking, exploring, and communing with nature. You might even want to sing around a campfire and roast marshmallows. But when night falls, you'll want to be in the tent.

If you're not a fan of building tents, then you're in for quite a treat.

The floating tent doesn't have any tent poles you have to worry about. You simply need to inflate it and then you're ready to go rafting your way to a good night's sleep.

The tent has been designed to withstand pretty much anything nature throws at it.

Its inflatable base will keep you afloat while the tent fabric will keep you dry as it's waterproof. SmithFly also claims that it can withstand high winds, in case you get stuck in a freak storm.

Aside from being sturdy, the Shoal Tent is also extremely comfy on the inside.

The floor is a six-inch thick drop fabric, which essentially turns it into an air mattress. That way, you can just lay there and look up the stars or bird watch safely through the see-through dome.

Building the base is also pretty easy to do thanks to the heavy-duty hooks and loops.

The tent topper sides themselves all attach and detach super easy, which is an incredible asset if you need to use the top to get out of the tent.
