Camp fire utensils rack/holder

We have been out all week and the hot dog sticks and pie irons and what not laying/leaning against chairs are driving me crazy.

Wondering if anyone has come up with a home made rack holder to keep everything organized and up off the ground???

Let's see some pics if your up for sharing your ideas.

Haven't thought of a rack, but came up with a cute idea of keeping all the fire tools and marshmallow roasters together neatly when we pack up. Cut off the legs to an old pair of jeans, sew the CUT edge, leaving the hemmed edge open, which made a long bag. Put all the food tools in one, and the fire tools in another then tied the ends with twine. All together and never have to look all over for the one I want. Now, with that said, since I'm only 5'2' next time I'll use my husbands jeans. Have gotten a lot of comments at the campgrounds on my "tool bags".

Hey that's a good idea. Ours just bounce around in the front compartment. Thanks

When we were leaving our camper setup for about a month earlier this summer, I took a piece of 2" firewood and put some deck screw's into it, then bungeed it to a tree. Don't have pics, but it worked great. I like the idea of one so think I'll make a simple one out of steel. A base, maybe weighted and one that would stab into the ground, a riser, and a horizontal piece with lots of hooks and holders to go across the top.

Why not just use one of those stands for fireplace tools?

That could work, but I have way more out than would fit in those. Plus, I want mine taller so the short people that follow me around can reach everything.

I don't have a picture of it, but I took a 24" piece of 4" PVC, put a cap on the end with a 6" piece of all-thread bolted through the center and sharpened just a bit. We get to camp, i stick it in the ground and all the sticks go in it.

Thanks everyone I'm starting to get some ideas here now. I'm going to try a couple different things to see which works best. I'll take some pics as I go.

Keep those idea coming.

This is what I was talking about earlier to keep my camping tools together. One is for food things ie: hot dog/ marshmallow cookers, food things and the other is for Bon fire tools. As you can see I should have used my hubby's jeans so they would be longer, but this works. I'm sure there are a lot of other great ideas and creations out there and would love to hear them
