Camping is one of the great pastimes of the outdoors. There is nothing better than sitting around the campfire and talking about the past. Don't forget the smores and hot chocolate. If you are like 40% of people that don't know how to make a campfire then you may want to look into this contraption below.

A propane fire pit is a great way to keep a camp warm while setting a cozy mood. By bringing along a portable propane fire pit, a camper eliminates the need to spend time and energy finding wood and building a campfire.

When the night gets chilly out in the woods or at the lake, an outdoor propane fire pit can provide enough warmth to keep the whole family happy without the smoke and ashes that come with a wood campfire. They can come in all shapes and sizes, from a regular circular fire pit to a decorative bowl with fake logs. A propane fire pit table can even have a table built in, and often comes with accompanying chairs to create a matching set for the entire camp. This provides much more function for your fire pit than simply a ring of rocks with logs burning in the middle.

This is not to mention that it is much cleaner. Propane burns nearly smokeless, unlike wood fires. This means that your attractive, clean burning fire bit with a built in table and chairs will be a much more attractive gathering place for the whole camp. As a focal point, it can provide a perfect gathering area for everyone to sit around and share stories or roast marshmallows while keeping warm, all while avoiding smelling like smoke.

With so many different kinds of propane gas fire pits available, it is easy to get overwhelmed by choices. Before you search for one, ask yourself if you want one with a built in table and included chairs. Do you want a tall, standing fire pit, or one that sits closer to the ground? There are also differences in the materials used in the construction of the pits. There are fire pits made of rock, metal, and combinations of the two. Once you have addressed these issues, you will find that your selection has been narrowed considerably and that the decision should be much easier to make.

Whichever propane fire pit you decide on, you will find that it makes much easier while still providing the warmth and functionality of a wood camp fire.
