I have one of these. I also have the cooking grate, but havent used it yet.

I love my Little Red Campfire! Super convenient, not very big, but definitely adequate for our little clan. No smokey clothes, and at the end of the evening, I just turn it off and go to bed!

I should add that my pit, the instructions for the one I linked to in post #2 says to use about 2" of sand in the bottom to keep it from glowing red and damaging the metal, causing corrosion, etc. I'm not sure how much hassle this will be for a quick weekend trip to have to clean out the sand and disassemble, and store the firepit. Honestly we haven't' used it yet due to circumstances (campground pit, high wind, timing, etc.) And I would not have gotten such a big one if I had to do over, but it was a black Friday deal on Amazon and jumped on it.

Pick up a Weber kettle off Craigslist or an auction, cut the legs off to the height you wish. Cheap, about the same size as the others mentioned and ready to cook on if you desire. They come in 14", 18" and 22" so you can have some size option.

WE carry the standard LOWES 30-inch type fire pit.


Most camp grounds DO NOT allow you to bring in your own firewood. I would call the campground before bringing any firewood from home.

Most every campground we have gone to always has firewood available to use.

We setup our small fire pit close to the patio area and have never had any problems with having it with us. Sometimes the camp grounds have a ban on any open fire but this is always known before we show up...

We really enjoy having our small firepit with us...

We usually end up on the beach at LAKEWOOD Mytrle Beach in the SEP/OCT time frame. All of the campers setup on the ocean side front roll really have a variety of different type firepits going. Makes for a nice walk down the ocean side street seeing what everyone is using...

We have a medium size propane (we bought it at Cabela's) fire pit we like it especially on hot summer nights since we can adjust the flame height so there is not to much heat and everyone can sit around the fire

Not true everywhere. Most in the mid-west do, for now anyway. In WI SPs there is a limit of no wood farther than 10 miles from the park. That's down from 25 a few years ago. There's talk in WI that they may soon only allow wood sold in the parks.

The problem is the emerald ash borer that has come into our country from all the imports from China.

We also bought a propane fire pit from Costco. We love it because as others have said, we can use it everywhere -- including RV parks that don't allow wood fires and we don't smell like smoke the next day. (Nor do our pillows from sleeping on them with "smokey hair!)
