The MSR Ground hog Stakes are regarded by many as the best tent stakes on the market. These stakes are made of aluminum and are light enough to carry with you to your campsites without bogging you down. They are very durable and less likely to bend than are other stakes that are available. They are extremely easy to drive into even the hardest ground due to their three sided design. The amount of positive reviews I’ve seen for these stakes lets me know I’m not the only one to love them so much. One person claimed they were the first stake he tried that didn’t break or bend in his rocky Colorado soil.
Most tents today are equipped with inferior stakes that don’t do a good enough job gripping the ground and come loose to easily. Many also bend with very little use. after market tent stakes are practically a necessity for campers.Three are cheaper stakes available but the MSR Ground Hogs are about as good as it gets.
