Eating outside is part of thoroughly enjoying the fresh air, the scenery or the wild lands. If you plan to camp outside of developed campgrounds -without the park provided picnic table, then you might wanna consider bringing a small table. For the meal preparation - if nothing else. Working outdoors often requires some gear and a table of some kind, so if you plan to spend large amounts of time outdoors at camp - consider this purchase. Portable tables come in handy when serving food, just like chairs are great for relaxing.
