Walmart has rolled back the prices significantly of some of their Ozark Trail backpacking tents.

See this two man tent for $21.49 (I think originally around $60).

Also, see these one man tents:

Ozark Trail 43 Ounce Ultralight Backpacking tent. This was originally $119 (not $54.97).

Ozark Trail Backpacking tent. This was originally $89 (not $55).

Build quality almost certainly won't be as good, but I was surprised to see that the 2p has roughly the same size, weight, and features of my $200 Marmot Limelight 2p. It's not ultralight, but it's probably a decent way to get into the woods if you are only going out a few times a year, or into decent weather. The floor is probably not super robust, so I'd pick up a footprint/tarp to keep it from getting shredded.

IMO a two person tent is generally just big enough for two people to fit in in their sleeping bags and that's it. YMMV depending on the brand, but me and my SO got a 3 person tent so we would have room to stretch out a bit more and have space for our packs in the tent if needed.

Edit: I originally started this with "Do Not Take This Backpacking"

I think it would be better to say: "Don't take this backpacking without having a backup plan, or testing it well for durability against wind and rain first."

Some of these aren't truly waterproof. Ozark Trail stuff is very hit or miss. You might have to do some seam sealing to get a waterproof tent out of this.

Don't be the guy who buys this and immediately goes on his first wilderness adventure. Use your brain and don't assume that this fits your needs out the box. Test it without going far, read reviews for advice, do some seam sealing and waterproofing if needed. Understand that getting wet at 40 degrees 6+ miles in the forest can kill you, and that this is a potentially fragile and questionably waterproof tent. If you might be putting yourself in that position, you need to know how to handle it.

Also if you're shopping for a general camping tent (not backpacking), Coleman makes bulletproof waterproof stuff for a reasonable price.

Thanks for posting. I bought the ultralight 1-person and the backpacking 2-person. I enjoyed backpacking earlier in the year with my 10 pound Coleman tent. I'm sure I'll enjoy it more in the fall with a 3 pound tent.

Would this be a good tent for 2 people staying at a campground for a couple drunken nights? Will be just for sleeping/drinks, personal items

If you're just going to sleep in it, maybe. Generally if you want space to move around and do anything inside of the tent you want 2x the advertised person capacity, so a "4 person tent" for 2 people would be comfortable.

The advertised floor dimensions are 90" x 54", or 7.5 feet by 4.5 feet. Keeping in mind that the roof is tapered at the corners you're not going to have much room to do anything except pass out. Your personal items may need to be stored in the vestibule, depending on how bulky they are.

oh man i wouldn't recommend these for camping, unless you will be near your car and absolutely know it will be perfect weather. at least go with a coleman if you're not going with the higher end brands. the coleman might be heavier, but is a lot sturdier and rain-proof than these. used an ozark trail in the rain and it did horribly. water seeped in from everywhere and pooled on the tent floor. if i was car camping i wouldn't care and woulda just went in my car, but i was 8miles in on a hike in site, so had to live with it.

I usually just sleep out when backpacking, and I wouldn't count on this to get me through any kind of weather, but at under 3 pounds and less than 30 bucks, the ultralight seems like a good deal to me even if all it does is keep bugs and dew off my face.
