Upgrade Your Tailgate and Backyard Parties with Versatile Camping Tables

Have you ever been to a party and thought, there are too many places to set down my food and drinks? Neither have we. In the world of entertaining, there’s no such thing as too many comforts. And in the world of camping tables, there’s no such thing as being too lightweight or durable, which is why we’ve highlighted our three favorite (lightweight and durable) camping tables below.

Whether you’re spending a week in the outdoors camping, celebrating Sunday football with a tailgate, enjoying the warm weather with a backyard party, or need extra room for indoor events, camping tables are a versatile and affordable piece of furniture. Designed to handle the elements, camping tables are also great for use in garages and homes, whether you need a place to lay down tools, work on crafts, or extra room for the turkey at Thanksgiving.

Don’t let the name ‘camping table’ fool you. These tables are useful for so much more than trips to the lake (although they’re great for that as well). Check out our top picks below.

1. Best Choice Products 4ft Indoor Outdoor Portable Folding Plastic Dining Table

Made with a molded white granite tabletop that is stain-resistant, this table is a versatile table that works for camping trips, parties, crafts, DIY projects and more. The Best Choice easily folds in half and comes with a carrying handle that makes the table portable and easy to store. The durable table features a rust-resistant powder-coated steel frame and a UV-protected top. We also like that this table can hold up to 300lbs, which is massive.

Pros: This table comes in three different sizes, ranging from 4′ to 8’ft.

Cons: At just under 22 pounds, the Lifetime is the heaviest table on our list.

2. Coleman Pack-Away 4-in-1 Adjustable Height Folding Camping Table

If you need a table that is high on versality and low on weight, try the Coleman Pack-Away 4-in-1 Adjustable Height Folding Camping Table. The Coleman can be used as two separate tables, a square table, a long buffet table or two tables at different heights. Both tables can be adjusted to three heights, going all the way down to 14” to make it a side table and come with separate leveling feet. The Coleman tables can be easily carried or stored together with attached brackets.

Pros: At just 13.5 pounds, the Coleman’s lightweight aluminum frame is much lighter than the Lifetime, which is approximately the same size.

Cons: The Coleman’s tabletop is thick particle board, which can be dented or break if too much weight is placed on top.

3. Outry Lightweight Folding Table with Cup Holders

Don’t get bogged down by a heavy table thanks to the Outry Lightweight Folding Table with Cup Holders. Measuring 29.5” x 22” x 21”, the Outry comes with two convenient built-in cup holders and a carrying case for easy storage and transport. The Outry is made with durable ripstop 600D nylon fabric and an aluminum alloy frame.

Pros: At only 2.6 pounds, the Outcry is the lightest table on our list.

Cons: The Outry is much smaller than the first two tables on our list and much shorter, making it good for use as a side table or a table for two when in the seated position.
