Camping doesn’t have to mean eating dehydrated meals and protein bars. In fact, cooking at camp can be one of the most memorable parts of your trip. There’s nothing quite like drinking a hot cup of coffee and watching the sun rise while your eggs sizzle on the griddle. For that reason, my dad’s favorite thing to prepare for camping trips is the menu. The one piece of camping gear he will never go without is the trusty camp stove he’s had for more than 15 years.
When it came time to buy my own, I was surprised to find so many options on the market. Through my research, I was able to narrow down the best camp stoves in a variety of categories, and I want to share my findings to help you save time.
