Rated 5 out of 5 by RidersDad Very Sturdy
This is a great hammock stand - very large, and incredibly sturdy. It is very simple to assemble, can be done in less than one minute. It has gotten a whole summer of use by two college age women - both using it at the same time! - it is that large and sturdy. I think it wise to pick-up at store if possible, as I did, to avoid possible damage - it is also quite heavy. This will last for many years.

The hammock stand is sturdy. It will last a lifetime. Easy to assemble. We has measured carefully and it fit nicely in the space where we wanted it, but beware it is huge. Typical L.L, Bean quality that I have come to trust..

The Platform is basic. It is the most solid that I have seen in the marketplace and a very good price

Rated 5 out of 5 by love3cats Sturdy and worry free!
This hammock stand is sturdy and well made. Even though it is quite large and fairly heavy, I put it together myself in about 5 minutes. No tools are necessary. It holds a 2 person size quilted hammock easily. We have never worried about the stand not holding the weight of any person who has used it. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SaraVT Not the happiest camper with this transaction...
Didn't come with instructions.. just a bunch of metal poles. Had to go online to get them.. Didn't come with the hardware package. Had to call back to have that shipped. One of the poles was sticking out upon delivery.Not packaged well. Took 3 1/2 - 4 weeks to get it. BUT overall.. once I got it together and my hammock hung on it.. its great. Maybe in the future they should be shipped from LL Bean and not dropped shipped. Quality control was not the LL Bean quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SixtyOneShopper BEST STAND you can buy anywhere for the price.
I have had my stand for at least 12 years. It is still fantastic and durable. It is worth the money truly. I am so glad LL Bean still sells this stand. The best one you could ever find for sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MegW Sturdy stand when you have no trees!
This stand is perfect for the hammock I bought from LL Bean. I don't have trees in my yard so this is the perfect solution!

This hammock stand is just what I needed for my extra-large hammock. It was simple to assemble, and at our home it holds two adults, a small child and a fuzzy dog.

We had a Pawley's Island hammock that we used to suspend between two trees. Can't do that in our new yard, so I needed a sturdy stand and this one fit the bill perfectly. Easy to assemble and looks and feels pretty heavy duty. Bought it for my husband as part of his retirement "package." After he's through with the honey-do list, he can hang out on the hammock. Haven't logged too many hours in it yet -- weather's been lousy, but we have big plans. It looks great on our sweeping front porch. Thanks LLBean.
