When spending a night or two under the stars, a camp stove is essential camping gear.

Features 2 independently adjustable burners for precise temperature control and allows for even cooking. You can serve a variety of outdoor meals to friends and family while you travel with your other outdoor stoves. The ultra-portable Coleman PowerPack Propane Gas Camping Stove, 1-Burner, won’t take up much space in your backpack, so you can serve everyone’s favorite hot meals at the campsite.

Camp Stove Fuel Types

The most common fuel used for camping stoves is propane. However, some camping stoves also consume isobutane and butane. So what’s the difference?


Propane is by far the best performing and most common camp stove fuel. Disposable green propane bottles can be found at almost every gas station, grocery store and hardware store in the country. With the proper adapters installed, propane stoves can also be attached to larger reusable storage tanks. Over time, reusable propane tanks can save you significant fuel costs and can be refilled at most gas stations, thus reducing waste.


This fuel is most commonly used in light backpacking stoves. While it offers good performance when it's cold, its main advantage is its light weight - not a critical factor for car camping. Isobutane is also the most processed gas, and therefore the most expensive. However, if you backpack a lot and only want a stove, it may make sense to buy a camping stove that uses the same type of fuel.


Butane is very cheap, but does not perform well at colder temperatures. As temperatures approach 30F, this fuel will struggle to power a stove, making it more suitable for warmer weather climates.

For the vast majority of recreational campers, we recommend propane stoves. They offer the best performance, the fuel is cheap and widely available, and all but the most stringent wildfire restrictions are approved – and if you pick up a refillable tank, it’s the most environmentally friendly.

Number Of Burners

How many burners do you need? This depends a lot on the size of your group and your cooking style. For most casual campers, a two-burner stove is the most versatile option. Being able to boil water and fry at the same time feels most like cooking at home.

One burner:

If you cook for a small number of people and like to make one-pot meals, you'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish with one burner. These types of stoves are relatively light and take up the least amount of space.

Two burners:

The most common camping stove is a two-burner setup - and for good reason. This type of stove offers a lot of versatility in a relatively compact form. Cooking on a two-burner stove feels very similar to the way we cook at home.

Multiple burners:

It is very rare to want to have more than two burners in a campground, but if you are cooking for a large group or family, that may be fine. There are some stoves that offer a fixed 3 burner configuration.

BTU Explanation

BTU stands for British Thermal Unit. Basically, it is a measurement of energy, and in the case of camping stoves, heat. Each burner of a gas stove you find in your home has (on average) about 6,000-8,000 BTU.Lower BTU’s usually mean lower heat cooking (for stewing and light cooking purposes). While higher BTUs (anything above 10,000) indicate high-temperature cooking (ideal for meals with longer cooking times and critical for being able to boil large amounts of water quickly).

How To Choose The Right Camping Stove

Stove Category: Freestanding Or Tabletop

Camping stoves come in two basic designs: high freestanding models with legs and more compact tabletop models. Freestanding stoves are usually associated with larger, high-output models and can take up a lot of space if placed on a picnic table or desk. They are heavier and harder to transport, but are a terrific tool for the discerning camp cook. With plenty of cooking space, you can get creative while dining in the field. If you think you might benefit from a freestanding stove, but dread having to lug it around on every trip, fear not: most stove legs are removable. However, most campers prefer tabletop stoves. They have a smaller footprint and weigh less, making them easy to pack and load into a car. If you're going deep into uncharted territory or camping in remote areas but still want to enjoy a good meal, you may want to bring a camping table for not only the stove, but for any preparations as well.

Slow Cooker Control and Performance

While a blazing 20,000 BTU burner is great for pasta feed, for items that require more finesse, you need to make sure the stove has effective simmer control. This requires non-volatile fuel conditioning and the ability to maintain a strong flame even at low heat. Good slow cooking performance is not usually found on specification sheets, but higher-end models usually perform better in these conditions. Also, if you are running at low temperatures, having a good windshield will help keep the flame lit.

Windy Weather Performance

Even in the sunniest of months, the weather can be unpredictable, but the show must go on. That includes making a decent hot meal. The flame on any stove is sensitive to movement and blowing winds, and finding a protected space is important no matter which stove you choose. To help, many models have a wind shield that covers all three sides of the stove.

Automatic Ignition

Piezo is a pressure-based form of ignition that is popular in camp stove applications. Instead of having to sometimes struggle to turn on fuel and quickly light a match or click a lighter, this form of automatic push-button ignition keeps your hands free from any large fires.

Camping Vs. Backpacking Stoves

For those weighing the decision between camping and backpacking stoves, there are some important trade-offs to consider. In addition to being lighter in weight and smaller in package size, backpacking models only come with a burner that can hold pots or pans, which limits the cooking space and the types of foods you can cook. In addition, backpacking stoves are more fragile, less stable, and don't slow cook like camping models. If you won't be traveling far from your vehicle, then a camping stove will greatly improve performance, and the added weight and bulk may not be important. However, if you regularly travel deep into remote areas, then the weight reduction is well worth the sacrifice in cooking ability.
