• my tent (new) came with fifteen sturdy aluminum stakes. remember there is a footprint and fly also. so i think that adds at least four stakes, they are in a hook type shape. personally, i use titanium stakes when i backpack, mostly for bragging rights. thank you for asking.

  • You are correct, I also bring small compression bag's to fill when stakes can not be emplaced. If you cant afford them just use old wool socks and fill them with rocks or sand to tie your tent off. Hope this helps and enjoy
