What’s even better than having all the tools, utensils and supplies you need at your campsite? Having a stable flat surface to work from. Anyone who’s lost a crucial fastener down the crack of an old stump knows what I’m talking about — nothing beats having a damn table when you want a damn table. Sit at it for meals and card games, use it as a work bench, or just keep open foods elevated off the ground and away from bugs and dirt — all vital to having a good time off the beaten path, and also probably vital to your sanity.
No, you’re probably not going to fold this thing up and put it in your ultralight backpack for a weeklong trip. It’s not that kind of camp table. But if you’re setting up your camp within a short walk of the car, the cabin, or even just in your own back yard (not everyone wants a picnic table permanently installed on the lawn, am I right?) having a sturdy-yet-portable table like this one could be just what you need. And at $30 this compact table will prove its worth in no time.
