Best Tent Stakes for Survival Camping

Tent stakes should be durable, light-weight, and made from aluminum or steel for best performance.

While all tents are packaged with a set of tent stakes, they’re generally inadequate for more challenging environments and cheaply made. Since you’re reading this article, I doubt you’d be surprised to learn that many tent manufacturers cut corners on accessories.

The good news is it isn’t difficult to find replacement tent stakes; and they come in practically every conceivable configuration, from the type of stake (e.g., traditional shepherd’s crook design, V-shaped, Y-shaped), to numerous lengths (from 6″ to 10″).

My personal preference is to buy stakes at the higher end of the length-range as it brings me peace of mind in the event of heavy rain or strong wind.

Here I’ve put together the following list of tent stakes so you can learn what’s available in one place.
