Propane camping stove options range from tiny pocket-sized backpack camping stoves that are ideal for the hiker to much larger 2 & 3 burner models that are better suited for the car camper or base camp. Propane fueled camping stoves have become the most popular camping stoves recently due to their ease of use, reliability, and availability of fuel. Unlike Kerosene, White Gas, Butane, and other liquid fuel sources, propane is usually available at even the smallest, out-of-the-way convenient stores.

Propane camping stove fuel is available in the small 16.4oz portable canisters and can also be used in the larger refillable propane tanks which give the propane camping stove the versatility to be used for day trips, or extended stays.

Propane Single Burner Camping Stove

Most single burner camping stove models are designed more for the backpacker and therefore often use a blended fuel or white gas to perform well at higher altitudes and in severe temperatures (below freezing). However, a few manufacturers do offer some nice, low cost single burner propane camping stove models like Coleman, Stansport, Texsport, and Century. Most of these are low-frills, get-the-job-done solutions that actually perform quite well considering their low prices ($25 - $45). Many of these single burner propane camping stove models simply screw directly onto a portable propane tank. The one problem with this style of propane camping stove is that they can be unstable to cook on as they use the portable propane bottle as their base. Fortunately most single burner camping stove models come with an additional plastic base that the bottle fits into to solve this issue.

Double Burner Camping Stove

The double burner camping stove is where the propane camping stove really excels. Mind you, due to the size of these it is not something you are going to want to strap to your back to pack-in on an overnight backpack trip, but for the car camper the additional weight and size is usually worth the compromise for convenience.

Most of the double burner propane camping stove models we've looked at include a wind screen and a built-in piezo ignition system which makes them quite easy to use. Unlike the older 2 burner camping stoves that ran on kerosene & white gas, there's no need to deal with messy fuel cans or count the number of manual pumps required to pressurize the fuel. With the modern day ddouble burner camping stove you pretty much connect the propane tank, turn on the valve, click the ignition button, and you're ready to cook.

3 Burner Camping Stove

3 burner propane camping stoves are harder to come by and many of them are really double burner stoves with a griddle in the middle. These can be especially convenient though for the campsite. A 3 burner camping stove is not necessarily any bigger than your 2 burner stove, but the convenience of the griddle can be nice. Pancakes, burgers, bacon, or sausage? The 3 burner propane camping stove brings the ultimate convenience to the outdoors.

Best Camping Stove

The propane camping stove may not be the best camping stove for every occasion, such as high altitude camping or extreme low temperatures, but for the 3 season camper that doesn't plan on using it atop Mt Everest; the propane camping stove is considered by many to be the best camping stove for all-around outdoor camping.
