Wood Burning Camp Stove

We get a lot of questions about the best wood burning camp stoves as well. Most generally consider a camping stove a little bigger and more robust than the traditional backpacking wood stoves. Campers may have access to a car or boat, so they can haul a little more. Obviously you're not going to be wanting to haul around a huge cast iron beast though!

You have many options for your camping expedition. You can go with a liquid fuel like an alcohol stove although these can be a little tough for a large group of people and are generally not as sturdy as a dedicated wood heater. Petroleum based heaters will be more powerful but you will also need to transport and buy the fuel. Plus there is an added safety and maintenance issue. Wood tends to be cheaper, available locally, and less of a chemical hazard.

A cylinder stove is a common design for a portable stove, but they are fairly big, as you can see in the picture to the top left.

A better option for lighter traveling is a wood gas stove as shown below. They actually use a sophisticated gasification system to burn the gas, making the heating more efficient overall.
