PARKVIEW 2 & 3 SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove all contents from stuff sack and lay tent body on the ground.
2. Assemble the hub/pole and the single orange vestibule pole without connecting them to the tent body 
yet. For the Parkview 3, there is also a single silver, cross-over pole.
3. Insert the four pole tips of the hub/pole into the inner grommets at the four corners of the tent, matching the 
orange poles to the orange webbing. The shorter pole section that connects the two hubs should run parallel 
to the seam along the top of the tent, in line with the clips that will attach the tent body to the pole frame. 
4. Clip up tent body to hub/pole frame using the plastic clips attached to the tent body.
5. Parkview 3: Insert the ends of the silver cross-over pole into the grommets located at the side of the tent 
and attach corresponding clips on the tent body to the pole.
6. Drape tent fly over the set up tent body, lining up the vestibule doors with the tent body doors. The front 
vestibule has the largest vestibule space and the rear vestibule is smaller with a single vertical zipper.
7. Clip the side release buckles of the fly and tent body together on the corners of the rear of the tent (with 
the rear vestibule door), to mate the fly with the tent body.
8. Attach the four Velcro straps on the underside of the fly to each pole on the hub/pole frame.
9. To set up the vestibule: Feed the single orange pole through the small webbing loop (or Velcro strap) at 
the top of the front vestibule on the underside of the fly.
10. Insert the two pole tips of the orange vestibule pole into the outer grommets on the orange webbing at 
the front corners of the tent.
11. Attach the four Velcro straps on the front vestibule of the fly to the orange vestibule pole.
12. Clip the side release buckles of the fly and tent body together on the corners of the front of the tent 
(with the front vestibule door) to mate the fly with the tent body.
13. At the foot and head of the tent, attach the hooks on the tent body to the loops on the inside of the 
rain fly to pull tent body taut for extra space.
14. Stake out all corners and guy lines for optimum stability, space and ventilation.
FAST FLY SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
If you purchase the optional Big Agnes footprint for our Parkview tents, it will enable you to pitch a shelter
while leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires the footprint, tent fly, poles and stakes.
1. Lay the footprint on the ground and stake out. 
2. Assemble the hub/pole frame and insert the four pole tips into the inner grommets on the footprint. 
Parkview 2: the pole section connecting the two hubs should run across the width of the footprint. 
Parkview 3: run the silver pole over the hub/pole frame and insert tips into the grommets on the side of 
the footprint.
3. Drape tent fly over the poles, aligning the vestibule doors with the long side of the footprint for the 
Parkview 2 and the short side for the Parkview 3. The front vestibule has the largest vestibule space 
and the rear vestibule has a single, vertical zipper. 
4. Clip the side release buckles of the fly and footprint together on the corners of the rear of the tent 
(with the rear vestibule door), to mate the fly with the footprint. 
5. Attach the Velcro straps on the underside of the fly to each pole on the hub/pole frame and silver pole 
on the Parkview 3
6. Feed the single, orange pole through the small webbing loop at the top of the front vestibule on the underside 
of the fly and insert the two pole tips into the outer grommets on the corners of the front of the tent.

fly with the footprint.

Separate 6", large diameter pole segment included for emergency field repair.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR TENT SET UP
• Our tents are easy to set up but we suggest you practice once at home before using them for the first time 
to avoid late night bickering with tent mates while fumbling around in the dark.
• Before pitching tent, clear campsite of debris that may pierce tent floor.
• Big Agnes tents are all freestanding, but we recommend staking them out to increase space 
and keep your tent from becoming a tumbleweed.
• Hang onto your stuff sacks or they’ll blow away and create backcountry litter.
• Pull on the pole sleeve fabric when inserting poles to avoid any bunching in the material.
• Push rather than pull poles through pole sleeves.
