Best Portable Camping Fire Pit Ideas for Black Friday

| October 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

Black Friday marks the beginning of gift buying season for a large segment of the country and the cold weather makes this time of year the perfect time to buy a portable fire pit. If you plan to give the gift of heat to someone you love this winter, there are a number of portable camping fire pit ideas to consider. One of the best things about a portable campfire fire pit is that not only can you use it in your backyard or on your patio or deck, you can take it with you when you go camping or in your RV.

This flexibility has made this type of contemporary style fire pit a very popular Black Friday sale item. They offer the feel of a good old fashioned campfire while keeping the fire safely contained, which is typically required in most states and campgrounds. While this type of campfire may not have the permanent look and feel of an outdoor fireplace or a traditional style fire pit, they still provide plenty of heat and the beauty of a live fire. They are available in both wood burning and propane models further adding to their versatility.

Today’s portable fire pits tend to have more clean, no fuss, modern styling. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be made from cast iron, stainless steel, and copper. The vast majority of camping fire pits are designed to fold up into a more convenient package that fits in the trunk of a car, basement storage compartment of an RV, or the back of a pickup truck, making portability a breeze. If you are planning to go Black Friday shopping this year, consider these portable camping fire pit ideas:
