Propane Campfire?

Thinking of purchasing a propane powered portable campfire. Anyone have any experience or recommendations?

we bought a camp chef fire pit for about 90.00 and have been very happy with it. i can't remember from who, but if you shop around you'll find one. i picked it because the legs folde under and it stores in its own bag and fits in a 6" high space.

I've had a propane camp fire capability for years. For me it fits perfectly with the RV lifestyle. I carry a 20# bottle for fuel. The propane bottle also fuels my grill.

We like our propane Campfire-In-A-Can purchased from RVupgrades. Most campgrounds in OH & surrounding states do not let you bring in firewood due to the EAB. And, once, we were at a CG in IN during a prolonged dry spell & they wouldn't allow wood burning. The propane portable campfire fit the bill (see below). It does come with a grate for cooking over, but we've never used it. I don't want to get grease dripped on the ceramic logs.

Also, HERE is a previous thread & review about the propane campfire.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Camco does make a similar version running about half the price of the Campfire-In-A-Can gas model. You could probably get that at CW even cheaper with a President's Discount. I haven't seen one so I can't say how good or bad it is, just it's another option.

We've carried a New Frontier propane campfire for 10 years - great to have when wood is not available or open campfires are not allowed.
