Tent stakes

We have a Coleman screen house tent that we like to use when we camp to cover our picnic tables (if the campsite has enough space). It sets up much like any tent would; however, I’m tired of trying to drive those flimsy stakes in the ground and having them bend at the slightest bit of resistance (the ground here around our beautiful Kentucky lakes can be pretty rocky). I’m also tired of coming back to the campsite after some weather had moved through to find our screen house upside down in the campsite driveway! ��*♂️ Can y’all recommend some really (and I mean really) good stakes that will hold up and hold er down? Thanks!

If you've got a friend with a cutting torch: have him fashion you a set out of angle iron...

I like the huge nail style from coleman. They are available at Walmart and other places.

They hold up to a real hammer. I have driven them through asphalt.

Another vote for these...

I have never had one bend or break. Sometimes it seems like they are permanent when it comes to removing them
