Camp Stove Basics

Guide

Bring the Heat

Sure, you could survive on snack bars and peanuts when you're camping if you had to, but after a long day of hiking, biking, or skiing, you're going to need a hot meal to truly satisfy your hunger. There are several different types of camp stoves, but they can be generally divided into two groups—campground stoves and backpacking stoves.

Backpacking Stoves

Backpacking stoves are lightweight, compact stoves that are ideal for multi-day trips and solo camping. They are best suited for groups of three or less.

Campground Stoves

If you're car camping, opt for a campground stove. While heavy and not good for long treks, they're ideal for cooking for a group and much more versatile than backpacking stoves.
