Portable Fire Pit Guide

Many fond memories are created while camping, and nothing is better than quality time with friends and family around a campfire. Whether you’re looking to swap stories about the day’s adventures, roast hot dogs, toast marshmallows for S’mores, or simply want to keep warm, a nice fire is essential to camping and living life in the outdoors.

Gone are the days where a designated campfire area is required. With modern innovations in materials and product design, you can now bring the coziness of a campfire with you wherever you may go. Many new fire pits are now made for travel and constructed from lightweight materials, designed to fold up and pack away, they are built for various occasions and usage.

Some of these fire pits work with propane tanks, which can provide the same benefits of a real fire, but without the smell of smoke on your clothes or throughout the campsite. This also alleviates the need to have a constant supply of firewood with you, which can take up valuable space in your vehicle and time trying to source wood. The problem with propane tanks occurs when you run out and there’s no local stores or places to get a refill. Other benefits of a campfire in a can is the instant gratification of having full control of the size of the flame and the ease of turning the fire off and on to get started.

Yet, there’s something about the smell of wood burning, the sound of wood crackling in the fire, and watching the embers glow with heat that is symbiotic to camping. For those that want to preserve the authentic campsite fire experience, there are a host of portable fire pits that allow you to use wood and/or coal to build your next fire.

Being portable has major advantages. For one, you can easily move the campfire to be more convenient for your camp setup or outing. You can bring the fire pit with you practically anywhere from your backyard to a tailgate or even to the beach. For those that want to experience the fun of camping at home, you can easily set up a fire pit and enjoy it from the comforts of your patio, deck, or yard and then pack it away when you’re done. We selected a few of the top options for portable fire pits for more quality time around the fire, wherever you may be. [Note: The fire pits reviewed here are not made to use indoors, and it is suggested to be used in well-ventilated areas.]
