66 Awesome Shelters You Can Make With A Tarp

Tarps are great for stowing away in a backpack because they are lightweight, water resistant and very versatile in how you use them. This makes the tarp an ideal material for constructing some pretty cool makeshift shelters when it comes to survival in the wild.



Presented below are several tarp shelter designs to help you get started:

• A-Frame Tarp Shelter
Easy and fast: This shelter is made by stringing paracord between two trees. Then, the tarp is draped over the cord and staked down. You need to stretch the paracord tightly enough that it won’t sag in the middle.

• Sunshade Tarp Shelter
To construct this shelter, tie the paracord to four anchoring points. This shelter is ideal temporary protection against the rain because the water will pool in the middle, however note that as rain continues, water will continue to collect, becoming heavier and requiring that you push it off to the side. You can make this shelter sturdier by adding support to the corners.

• Lean-To Tarp Shelter
To create this shelter, tie paracord to two anchor points. Secure the tarp to the ground on the windward side. This type of shelter is great for deflecting the wind or providing sunshade.

• Tube Tent Tarp Shelter
This shelter is similar to the A-Frame tarp shelter, but the opposite ends of the tarp are secured together to provide a floor. To make it, secure the paracord between two trees and drape over the tarp. This is a sturdy shelter that can prevent rain from seeping in.

• Square Arch Tarp Shelter
Attach two paracord lengths to anchor points that are three feet apart and three feet high. Drape the tarp over the two lengths of paracord. Secure the long ends of the tarp with stakes.





• Bivy Bag Cornet Shelter
Tie the rope around a tree at four to five feet. Hammer in a stake to the ground at the other end. Drape the tarp over the rope diagonally, stretch out the corners, and hammer stakes on each side.

• C-Fly Wedge Shelter
Lay the tarp on the ground and secure it at the long side edge with two to four pegs. Use loop cords for the bottom fold. You can also use an extra rope to pull the fold out. Make a ridge line between two trees and hold the remaining tarp over the ridge line. Tie down each edge of the handing roof-line to the ground to secure it.

Note that cheap tarps tend to deteriorate quickly under UV light exposure, not very eco-friendly! Keep them in the shade when not in use.
