To fold a Coleman tent, start by cleaning the outside and inside tent surfaces. Take out the tent stakes and poles, and lay the tent flat on the ground so it makes a rectangle or square. Next, fold the tent in half two times in the same direction, taking care to smooth out any bumps or rolls so the folds are flat.
