So...is there a portable firepit/fire ring that is elevated and will not scorch their grass or pavers and is easy enough to transport in a reasonable amount of space? thank you!!
cheers and happy camping.
Fire in a Can. I've used for years.

Campfire in a can for us. We have no complaints other than the "I wants" of seeing some with much wider bowls.

I have the Outland Cypress model which is larger diameter and lower profile than most of their other models. The low profile has less clearance from the ground but it never heats up the ground below it. I use it on our plastic mesh mats with no problem. I converted it to low pressure propane and got a 25' hose so I can use it almost anywhere in the campsite. Love it!

Funny you write that. Last season I became very tempted but a couple of thoughts occurred:

1. My Campfire in a Can has been great in our travels throughout the U.S.

and, more importantly,

2. My storage space perfectly fits my Fire in a Can, Webber BBQ, plastic storage box for all the supplies for the two plus room to store two large folding camping chairs.

I've learned over the years, like mother nature, never mess with the perfect RV storage space!

Man, I read the original question and all of the responses, and realize that I am *not* the target customer for a campground that is going to fine me if their grass gets singed!

That's why we have choices, I guess!

We use the Fireside Outdoor popup. We use it over the grass at our cottage in Maine and it had never singed the grass. Get the lower heat shield to be sure. The whole thing folds up into bag smaller than a camp chair and we can use real wood with it. Makes a nice size fire to sit around.

I’m a fan of wood burning, myself, but that fire pit sure is cute. At 58,000 BTU/hr, how fast does run down a propane tank?

With a 20 lb tank, approx 7.5 hours at 58,000 BTU.

Thanks very much for that info. Well, then I’ll need to stick with wood burning. 4 or 5 evenings of propane fires and my motorhome propane tank would be empty. We normally go 2 years between fill ups.

Unless you're freezing, you don't need to have it cranked up full bore. Save a lot of propane that way. One 20lb tank always outlasts my trips. We might sit out by fire for 2 hours after sunset. Even on high, that's a lot of campfire time for 20 bucks of propane.

You gotta do what you gotta do, but I don't want to do that. We've got a small one for our back deck, but it never occurred to me to take it camping.

My Outland came with a lid, a strap for carrying and extra rocks. Nice.

Solo bonfire is awesome, and doesn’t damage anything underneath.

The real deal

If you want a real wood fire, you need a pop-up fire pit from Fireside Outdoor. It is completely off the ground and has a screen to catch all the ashes. You can also cook on it just like a real fire. Folds up into a bag for easy storage.

Solo stove

Recently camped at a new RV park in Wetumpka Alabama, they didn’t have fire pits at each site yet so they let us borrow this Solo fire pit it’s a very nice efficient burning portable pit.
