Wilderness " 5 " wood camp stove is the largest and longest burning tent stove available on the internet.

If another stove maker states his stove will burn longer than the Wilderness 5, it is not true.  How long a stove burns is based on the size of the fire box. As stated earlier, the Wilderness 5 is the largest tent stove made so it will burn longer than any other stove, especially with the gasket on the door.

 If you want a stove that burns all night, the Wilderness 5 is the stove.

NEW: The Wilderness and Yukon stoves now have a double top to help prevent warping. Only heavy duty stoves with this standard feature.   Double top will help prevent stove top warping if a camper accidentally allows stove to burn red hot.

 WHICH STOVE SIZE TO BUY.  If you are having trouble deciding on the stove size to purchase, it is normally best to go with the larger size.  If it is not too cold you can put less wood in the larger stove to heat your tent.  If the weather turns cold, you will have the capability to fill the larger stove with wood and be warm in your tent.  But, always do what is best for you and your budget.  Rich

Gasket on door for an airtight stove. Controls rate of burn much better. Very few camp wood stoves have a door gasket.

Reinforcement bars welded to both sides, top and back to prevent warping.

All stove accessories fit inside firebox. 

Rain cap with spark arrestor. Prevents rain and snow going into stove pipe. Much better than cheap wire mesh spark arrestors on most stoves.

Warming tray - 26"length  x  8"wide, which can fit on either side of stove.

Legs are 18" long. Which makes the stove top 6" higher than other stoves. Easier to cook on and easier to add wood.

5" nesting stove pipe, 7' 8" long - smallest piece fits into next larger size, end of pipe is 6". 6"  pipe opening allows better draft, especially at higher elevations. Stove pipe is long enough to have pipe about 1-2 feet above most tent ridges to allow wind to blow sparks away from your tent. Most other stoves only have 6' 6 " length of pipe.

Baffle plate behind air intake on door prevents any sparks from shooting out the air intake opening into the tent.

Large adjustable air intake on door allows a hotter fire when needed on cold nights. Baffle behind air intake on door prevents any sparks from shooting out the air intake opening into the tent.
Stainless steel 3 gallon water tank - Deluxe model can fit on either side of stove.

Grate, Deluxe Model. Grate  should be used for burning coal. Grate can also be used for burning wood as grate allows more air at the bottom of the wood creating a hotter fire.

Nesting stove pipe with welded seam, eliminates smoke leakage.

 I use this stove. For the money and quality - there is no stove on the market that can compare to this quality camp wood stove.  Rich

Occasionally FEDEX will damage a stove during shipment. If you receive a damaged stove, do not throw away box or use stove. FEDEX needs to look at box and stove for insurance claim. If you throw away box or cure stove FEDEX will not reimburse you for any damages. Report damages and provide pictures within 1 week of receipt of the stove. FEDEX will not reimburse unless damage is reported within 1 week.

Stove jack opening in a wall - you will need 5" straight pipe and 2 elbows. Straight pipe and 2 elbows available.  However, the 6" rain cap and spark arrestor in your stove will not fit the 5" straight pipe.  If you want a  custom 5" rain cap spark arrestor you can order it on the stove accessory page.

All metal in a stove moves somewhat when heated, that is just natural when metal is heated.  However, it is not possible to warp the wilderness stove unless it is burned red hot. The wilderness has top, bottom, sides, back end reinforcement bars to preclude warping during normal use.  If a stove warps it is because someone burned the stove red hot.  I sell a thousand of these stoves annually and 1 or 2 customers per year will call and say their stove warped.  There is no warranty for a warped stove.  Rich


All spark arrestors will eventually become clogged with ash and soot.

Remember to check your spark arrestor daily and clean spark arrestor as required.  Clogged spark arrestors will cause your tent to fill up with smoke very quickly or cause a fire in your stove pipe.

IN LINE SPARK ARRESTOR can be installed at the top of the stove and cleaned 2-3 times daily by simply pulling out the screen and tapping out any ash or soot captured in the screen. Takes 15 seconds to clean. In line spark arrestor prevents you from daily taking down your entire stove pipe and cleaning the spark arrestor on top of the last section of pipe.

Rain Cap should be at least 4" above top stove pipe.  If you have the rain cap directly on top of the stove pipe the smoke has no way to escape. Therefore, you will have smoke coming out the air intake into your tent.

Fire Mat is strongly recommended if you have a tent floor.  Mat will protect floor from heat and also protect floor if embers fall out of stove when you open the door.

Using soft wood and lower temperature stove burns will cause the spark arrestor to be clogged sooner.  A clogged spark arrestor will cause smoke to escape from the stove door intake and when opening door. And in extreme cases, a stove pipe fire.

Do not remove a water tank that is hot.  If you lose your grip or the tank does not become disengaged properly you could spill hot water on you. Hot water will cause first degree burns that will require immediate medical treatment.


I have used many tent stoves.  I have never seen another stove so well built.  The amount of heat the Wilderness 5 puts out is fantastic. Harlan

Just came back from our hunting trip in Colorado.  Used the stove every night to keep us warm and dry our clothes.  Stove burned all night and dried our boots and clothes.  Great, great stove.  William

Very impressed with your stove.  It is even better than the video.  You were right about the rain cap, very beneficial.  It rained all during our hunting trip.  Rain cap kept  a lot of rain from going down our stove pipe and into the stove. Rick  

Thanks for helping me get the larger wilderness stove.  It got very cold at night and I filled that sucker with wood all the way to the top.  We were warm and toasty until we went outside.  Barry

I like how you designed the air intake.  Easy to adjust and let me crank it down when some nights were warm.  Billy

This is the best stove I have ever used. Sturdy and tough.  I really liked the 18" legs.  Other stoves only have 12" legs. I am getting too old to bend down too far.  The wilderness stove is 6" higher than other stoves. I like it.  Nate

Received the Wilderness stove.   Very impressed with quality, weight and thickness of steel. You guys are great! Jon

Great stove.  Customer service great.  Tyler, the manager was very helpful with recommendations to selecting the best stove for me.  Rick

 Purchased the Wilderness 5 tent stove as you recommended.  Heated our 16x20 tent easily during our elk hunt in the Rockies in November. In line stove spark arrestor worked well.  Worth the extra money.  Robert

 Canvas Tent Shop you are amazing.  I got my stove today. So fast, couldn't be happier.  I really like all the extra reinforcement in the Wilderness stove. Thank you so much.  I will definitely recommend Wall Tent Shop to our friends. Tim

 I received my Yukon 4 stove yesterday.  Because of all the heavy cardboard outside and inside the tent stove came in perfect condition  Assembly was easy and quick a I completed the burn off (curing).  This is a very well made product and I am very impresses with the quality.  I would recommend this stove to anyone looking to heat a tent. My experience with Wall Tent Shop has been a five star, from the original order process to receiving my stove. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.  Thank you so much much for helping me make the right decision. Duane
