I agree with Jim, and use a ground cloth under the tent (carefully tucked in)
and inside I have a reflective, foam backed cloth that I use a "carpet". I
think it was originally sold as a reflective mattress pad. Anyway, I have a
small Geo dome tent and it covers almost all of the floor. Stays dry and
and a good ol' Bear, too!
