A tent is a type of sleeping accommodation usually used on vacation. Sleeping in one restores a Sim's energy, though some games also offer other forms of activities such as WooHoo.
The Sims: VacationEdit
|Sili-Camp Tent Site|
|In this age of silicon chips and digital living, why must your campground visitors be forced to endure Stone Age sleeping conditions? Sili-Camp tents upgrade camping to the information age. Miracles in nano-technology and silicon granule simulation have been combined into "Smart Dirt." Auto-level surfacing. Body-conforming sand technology. Tent liner even repels insects with timed-release Dimethyl Critakil vapor release. You rent the tent- we do the rest!|

In The Sims: Vacation, tents are one of the lodging options available on Vacation Island. In the default lots, they will be found in the forest and beach areas. Tents rent for 79 Simoleons a night, and two Sims can sleep in one. When Sims who are sleeping in a tent wake up, they automatically change into the appropriate clothing for the area of Vacation Island they're in. Just having a hotel key doesn't allow Sims to use tents, but Sims that have hotel keys can rent them. While Rental Shack Zack talks of "checking out" when a tent is rented, what appears to happen is that the rental expires at 11:00 AM.

If InTeenimater is installed, and teen Sims WooHoo in a tent, their parents will take notice and start lecturing the tent. This is called "Whats' going on here?!?!"
The Sims 3Edit
The Sims 3: World AdventuresEdit

|Price in game||§220-§2700|
There are three kinds of tents which can be bought. The first is the "Sim Scout's Classic Camper", a basic green tent which sells for §220. The second is the "Colesim 2br Edition Tent", which looks like a little house with two bedrooms, and costs §2700. The third is the "Sultan's Tabernacle", which is an adventure reward which can only be only be purchased from the special merchant on trips abroad, and can only be bought with ancient coins. It requires 2,500 ancient coins and a level 3 visa to purchase, and can be sold for §30,000.
Players are allowed to place tents on any lot. However, Sims will be considered to be behaving inappropriately if tents are placed and used on a neighbor's residential lot, as tents are considered as beds. The "Inappropriate but in a Good Way" lifetime reward can prevent this.

The Sims 4Edit
Tents are featured in The Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat and The Sims 4: Journey to Batuu, and are useful for sleeping on public campgrounds but can also be used at home. On a residential lot they can bought in build mode, but as rental lots in Granite Falls do not give access to build mode, the player has to buy one from a nearby ranger station. There are two available tents: one small and one large. Tents can be put in inventories and placed anywhere in a neighborhood.
Alongside sleeping, napping and relaxing, teens and older can read the Wilderness Digest in a tent, which will give basic tips on how to vacation in Granite Falls. Sims can tell ghost stories within a tent, however, it is only available after 7PM and requires at least one other Sim to be inside the tent. Planning outfits is possible with a tent as well and it will bring the player to Create a Sim. Children can also play in the tent and older Sims can WooHoo in them. Like with beds, Sims who are feeling sad or embarrassed can either cry or hide in a tent to relieve their negative emotion. Patch 63 gave toddlers the possibility to sleep and play in tents.
