    Best camping table 2021: from picnic tables to convenient foldaways

    While it’s perfectly possible to have a fantastic under-canvas experience without a camping table, the humble flat-surface-to-put-stuff-on is surprisingly useful in a camping setting, making it a minor essential in the versatile outdoors-persons armoury. As with camping chairs, once you’ve got used to a good camping table there’s no way back, adding not only the convenience of a handy mug of tea or cold drink, but also somewhere to put valuables you’d rather not be trodden on. 

    The best camping tables are lightweight, fold flat and as slim as possible, but robust enough to not collapse under the weight of a large dinner. An easy-clean surface is ideal, as well as being relatively weatherproof, and it’s worth considering the height of your chairs and general use you’ll need from it before parting with your hard earned cash. Some camping tables are slightly higher than others, designed to be a dedicated cooking area, where you can sit a camping stove and prepare food, while others are more coffee-table height and intended as mainly a relaxation aid, where you can balance your camping lantern and play cards.
