How To Choose The Best Folding Camping Table

Camping table folds in half and has a carry handle attached for easy transportation

If you enjoy eating on a table and like the convenience of having a portable camping table then we’ll go through a list of features below so you can pick out the best folding camping table.

Use – As mentioned previously, a camping table can be used for multi events or activities.  Deciding what you’ll mainly need it for and how many people you’ll need it for will help you narrow down your choices.

Safety Hinges – Safety hinges adds to the strength of the fold up camping table as this prevents the table from collapsing.

Dimensions – The size of the table when unfolded will give you an indication of how many people it would be suitable for.  Some manufacturers will suggest how many people it’ll be suitable for.

Folded Dimensions – The folded dimensions tells you how big the table is when it’s folded up.  These measurements are useful as it’ll tell you how much space it’ll take up when you have it in storage or how much space it’ll take in the car.

Weight – A lightweight camping table is more practical for those who want to travel light, however lightweight usually means the structure is weaker.  Larger camping tables understandably usually weigh more but tables that weigh more also usually mean it can withstand more weight.

Storage – A camping table with storage has a compartment beneath the table where it can be used to store things such as food, cutlery, plates or anything else.

Carry Handle/Bag – Most fold up camping tables will have a carry handle affixed so when it’s packed up you can simply just carry it by its handle.  Those which don’t have a carry handle affixed will have a carry bag supplied.

 

Adjustable Height Camping Table Perfect For Uneven Ground

When camping out you might come across uneven ground, in which this case having an adjustable height camping table may be ideal as you can adjust the table legs to balance the table.  It’s also useful as different table heights will be more suitable for different occasions such as:

  • Using it to sit at to eat.
  • For children to eat.
  • To use it as a preparation table and put items such as portable stove on top of.
  • Can even be used as a permanent table at home to put household equipment on top of.

 

Fold Up vs Roll Up Camping Table

These are the two types of folding camping tables, but each one would be better suited towards different uses, so we’ll compare the differences between the two below:

Fold Up Pros:

  • Suitable for families or larger groups of people.
  • Better for travelling to places in a car.
  • You can also use it as part of the home furniture, especially if you’re only living somewhere temporarily, it’ll make moving from one place to another a lot easier.
  • More choice of different styles and sizes to choose from.
  • Tables are usually stronger and sturdier.
  • Some come with chairs as a set.

Cons:

  • Tables are much larger when folded up.
  • Takes up more room in storage and not as portable due to its size.

Roll Up Pros:

  • Suitable for individuals or couples.
  • Better for those wanting to travel light such as backpackers.
  • Rolls up into a small carry bag, making it very space efficient.
  • Very lightweight so you’ll barely even notice it in a backpack.

Cons:

  • Not as strong and sturdy.
  • Limited on sizes and styles to choose from.

 

Camping Table and Chairs

Buying a camping table and chairs set will usually work out cheaper than buying the chairs separately.  The chairs will either be fixed to the table or detachable, if the chairs can be detached then you can also use it separately when the table is not required.

Although the chairs will be very basic, it’ll save on space by buying it as a set because the chairs will pack together with the table in the same enclosure.  Purchasing chairs separately will work to be more expensive and space consuming, but it’ll allow you to choose comfortable chairs.
