    1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for a camping table

    1.1 Types

    • Cooking station tables

    Cooking station tables are best when used for preparing food outdoors rather than for dining purpose. You can not only prepare food but also keep all the prepared meals on the table. This is not it. They come with accessories like holders for food and beverages, paper towels, etc. Some of them offer extra storage space also for keeping heavy vessels, cookware, grill.

    • Roll up tables

    Roll up camping tables have a unique design as they come with a removable or rolling top. They are compact and roll up into a small size that you can put into even a carry bag. Roll up tables have a frame featuring aluminium which ensures maximum stability. These tables are compact as well as lightweight. There can be a downside to this type as the top is usually not flat and fails to balance a bottle or cup. Therefore, you will often find cup holders on each corner of the mesh layered top. It is feasible only for a small group of people.

    • Folding tables

    As the name suggests, these type of tables can be easily folded due to which it offers effortless portability. They look compact on arrival, but once you open them, they are large enough to accommodate six people and heavy items conveniently. They have a flat tabletop and minimalist design. Some models come with built-in foldable chairs offering convenience. Most of such tables are made up of aluminium alloy or steel. Therefore, folding tables are the most durable than other types.

    • Small tables

    If you backpack solo or camp in a group of a maximum of two, a small camping table is for you. Not only it is smaller but also more compact than any other type of camp table. They are incredibly lightweight and are more portable. They are foldable as well, so whether you are on your feet or wheels, a small camp table is ideal for both. Moreover, you can use them as a primary table for outdoor purpose, and during night time, you can take it to your tent and use it as a side table.

    1.2 Material

    The most common materials used to make camping tables are almost the same as any other table, i.e. wood, steel, aluminium, plastic, and mesh (for tabletops). Each material has its plus and minus.

    Choose aluminium, if you want to carry light. Moreover, it is mostly rust-proof. Steel is a bit heavy, but a durable option if it is corrosion-proof steel. Wood is a traditional and stylish choice making a very sturdy camping table. However, depending on the wood, there can be issues related to discolouration, water resistance.

    Besides material, check the finish or gradation as well. For a table with a nylon top surface, check if the nylon has a water-resistant coating. If you want to buy metal tables, look for a corrosion-resistant option.

    1.3 Portable

    Portability is not related only to weight. It is associated with other features like foldability or collapsibility.

    Reputed manufacturers or brands pay close attention to making camping tables as portable as possible. The effort leads to plenty of options, including disassembling down to convenient packing dimensions.

    You need to keep little things in mind while looking for portability. A camping table may have excellent portability, but it can lack stability as folding legs often lack sturdiness. However, that doesn’t mean you do not buy a foldable table as these tables are stable enough for day-to-day use.

    1.4 Durable

    Environmental elements and how you use the camp tables in the outdoors determine the life of your table. If you need the table for cooking, look for a heat-resistant feature. Without it, the table will wear out quickly. Similarly, camping sites are often exposed to rain; therefore, a waterproof tabletop is perfect, especially for tables made of wood as that will prevent the table from rotting or mildew build up. Overall, aluminium and steel tables are considered the most durable.

    1.5 Weight

    The weight of a camping table is influenced by the size of the table and the materials used in it. Most larger camping dining tables weigh approximately 6 to 9 kilograms, while small tables can be less than 1 kilogram. For a camper with a car, truck, RV, weight may not be a crucial factor. However, for hikers and backpackers, even a few grams can make all the difference. However, in any case, travelling light is always the best. Therefore, irrespective of the fact you have or not have transport, checking the weight of the camping table is advised.

    1.6 Weight Capacity

    Besides the weight of the table, you should also take into account the table’s weight capacity, i.e. how much weight you can put onto the top surface. Usually, a meal for four to six people weighs about 10-15 kg. However, you might use that table for more than keeping vessels. You might use it for cooking and placing more massive appliances on it. Averagely, models that can hold up to a maximum of 100 kg.

    1.7 Size and Shape

    The size and shape of a camping table affect its functionality. For example, larger dining tables are convenient for family camping, whereas small or side tables suffice for the solo-camper or hiker. Typically, there are three categories of camping tables defined by their sitting capacity and size.

    Bistro tables: Smallest tables are called bistro tables. They are ideal for two people, but you can accommodate four people as well. However, their use is limited in outdoor spaces. They come in two height options, i.e. balcony and standard height which is about 90 cm and 75 cm high respectively.

    Dining tables: Under camp dining tables, you get as diversified options as in the case of indoor dining tables. There are camp dining tables available which can accommodate 4, 6 and even 12 people. If you want to serve a buffet-style meal, buy a camp dining table. 

    Extendable tables: If your camping partner(s) are not fixed, get this kind of table. Just one table can serve two or more people. Moreover, you can use the same table for putting heavy items during dinner time and keeping a hot chocolate mug while sharing intimate experiences during the bonfire.

    1.8 Quality

    For deciding on the ‘quality’ factor, we would like you to ask yourself if you are a seasoned, regular camper, or a first-time camper.

    If you are not a regular camper, we think there is nothing wrong with getting a cheap camping table. You get what you pay for. So, this table can have a shorter life span than more expensive versions. But spending a bomb for a table that will be used once or twice a year is never worth it.

    1.9 Setup

    Most of the camp tables are extremely easy to set up. They would either need some pop open or a small set up. The easiest ones are folding and rolling tabletops. The one that needs a little bit of set up, they need you to assemble the parts to erect them. But, no worries, that doesn’t take much time mainly because they come with instructions on how to open and fold them.

    1.10 Sturdiness

    The sturdiness of a camping table is about how much strength the table has. How much it can bear without wiggling and falling over. The lightweight camping tables lack reliable strength, especially if they do not have adjustable legs. Moreover, outdoors do not promise a smooth and flat terrain; therefore, we suggest buying heavy tables. In the case of lightweight options, make sure that the legs are adjustable or have anti-slip feet.

    1.11 Accessories

    Camping tables are basically used for dining or cooking. However, some of them come with extra features as well, such as storage compartments or cup holders. Camp tables also come with lamp holders to make them feasible for reading when night falls. The cooking station tables come with accessories like utensil holders and even bins.

    1.13 Other Factors

    1. How many people are going with you? You will need a larger table to make room for four to six people.

    2. The height of the camping table and camping chairs should be compatible. 

    3. The outdoors is ordinarily rough. So, get a stable table that won’t topple at the touch of wind or simply on a slightly uneven surface.

    2. Use Cases: The best camping table for you

    2.1 I am a hiker. Which type of camping table is best for me?

    If you’re a hiker or backpacker, we would recommend a camping table that has a carrying sack for additional portability. Carrying a bag can merely be a storage pouch to keep all your tables parts, or it can come with handy shoulder straps or loops to attach them to a daypack.

    3.4 Can I place the grill on the tabletop?

    You can do that only if the tabletop is made for that purpose. Even the best quality camp table can wither when a hot vessel placed on them. We know it looks tempting to put the grill in the centre of the camp table, but if your table is not engineered for it, that hot grill can do a lot of damage to your table.

    3.5 Is it better to buy a high weight capacity camp tables?

    It totally depends on the usage. If you are going to use the table to serve food, a basic folding top table will do the job. However, if you want to grill food and store it while serving to a large group of people, buy a large folding table.

    3.6 How to choose a camping table?

    Consider your purpose before buying.

    • For mountaineering, hiking, trekking, consider weight, fold size and simplicity. 

    • For a standard camp with up to two people, you can focus on additional factors like stools, seats or chairs.

    • For camping with a large group, buy folding or long camping tables. Weight is essential here, as well. Talking about style, you can choose a table with a bench or chairs and an umbrella hole in the centre of the table. Accessories like extra storage compartments, cup holders or meshed netting will be helpful too.

    4. How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for a camping table

    4.1 How to maintain camping tables?

    First and foremost, camping tables don’t call for much maintenance. Camp tables are made up of durable material that is resistant to harsh outside elements. Some of them might need a coating though, for example, a wooden top will need a waterproof coating to prevent it from rots and decay. Similarly, a steel frame lives longer with a powder coat on it. Coating, if done from time-to-time, your table will not wear out with time.
    Like any other thing in this world, frequent cleaning is suggested for the camp table as well. Avoid storing the table without cleaning the top, frame and legs. Failure to do this will be equivalent to the development of nonremovable stains. Last but not least, washing the table before using them ensures maximum levels of hygiene.
