Taking the right table on a trip can make the whole camping experience so much easier and enjoyable.
Ideal for sitting around for meals, great for using as a space to keep things off the floor outside, especially if it’s wet.
Here’s our picks for the top 10 camping tables from small side tables you can use to keep your tent tidy or to rest your morning brew on, to large folding dining tables, where all the family can enjoy their evening dinners together.
Let’s get going!
What to consider when buying a camping table
If you are planning on placing lots of items on your camping table you want to make sure it is strong enough to hold everything and won’t buckle with the weight. Make sure you know what your table weight limit is so you don’t overload it.
They vary in size, so it all depends on what you will be using the table for. If you just want a side table for having next to your camping chair there are plenty of great choices or if you’re planning a big get together around the dinner table every evening then there’s options for those too.
Easy To Set Up
There are plenty of options when it comes to camping tables but you want one that is easy to set up and not too fiddly. Folding options with handles are great for space saving and transporting from place to place.
The best camping tables offer stability and sturdiness. Adjustable legs can be a great option when looking for a camping table, so you can balance them on uneven ground. Also look for wipe-clean table tops for keeping them tidy and hygienic.
