Base Camp Awning

Choose a Color


The Base Camp Awning is a specialized addition exclusively designed for the Uchi Tent & Tsuku Base Tent. This awning extends your living space by attaching to the main pole of either tent, presenting a unified living and sleeping area. Crafted from the same robust polycotton fabric as the Uchi Tent & Tsuku Base Tent, it ensures a consistent appearance while providing a shaded refuge, and is less susceptible to burn holes from campfire sparks.

Its distinctive V-shaped design effectively prevents rain from entering at the connection point, maintaining a dry and comfortable environment. This awning is complete with three poles, simplifying the setup process when paired with the Uchi Tent & Tsuku Base Tent. It's also versatile enough to be used independently as a stand-alone shelter if desired. 


  • Expands living space when connected to the Uchi Tent & Tsuku Base Tent.
  • Includes three poles which is necessary when used with the Uchi Tent & Tsuku Base Tent.
  • Crafted from durable polycotton fabric, offering shade and coolness.
  • Innovative V-shaped design to keep the rain out.
  • 14 strategically placed grommets and loops for various setup options.
  • Also serves as an independent shelter.

About Polycotton

Polycotton is a mix of polyester and cotton. Compared to polyester, polycotton provides a superior camping experience. The material breathes so the tent does not become humid, it’s quieter in the wind, and it’s more durable. Polycotton is commonly used for tents in Europe and Japan. It is used less commonly in North America due to the cost. In an effort to introduce polycotton tents to the North American market, DOD is offering our line of polycotton tents at prices competitive to polyester tents.

Love it, easy to set up, versatile, and keeps the rain off no problem


The polycotton fabric feels really thick and nice. Will definitely last.

Really nice color

I love the olive, looks really rich and classic. I hate other camping brand weird colors.

Cool idea

I like taht DOD makes add ons to their products but there's not really a reason to buy a tarp that specifically fits this product. I could have just used other ones. I guess the only thing is if you are a style person and care a lot about how things look.

Easy setup

Happy it comes with poles and attaching the awning is straightforward. Great thought out design.
