The Camp Chef Sherpa Table
The Camp Chef Sherpa Table

Even Including the Kitchen Sink

My husband and I, we love camping, whether it's out of backpacks with our gear limited to only what we can fit and manage to carry, or car-camping where what we bring is limited only by the size of our vehicle. So, when we were browsing items to add to our wedding gift registry on Amazon, we were all over the outdoor gear and camping goodies. And this was one of the items we selected for our wish list and were happy to actually receive.

The Camp Chef Sherpa Table has accompanied us on a couple of extended camping trips so far (and many more to come) and has really made food prep and cooking easier, not to mention more organized and even more fun for us. Instead of having all of our utensils, dishes, accessories and gadgets, spices and other supplies all jumbled in tubs, they're now much more easily accessible in four colored, durable zippered bags, which have clear pockets for labeling what's inside.

The bags don't seem all that big, but they really do fit a lot of stuff, even a cutting board, pots and pans. We've got one bag filled with plates, bowls, cups, utensils, a flat griddle and a mixing bowl. The bags and the divider between them, which is partially removable as you'll see in the video below, expand, so you can really get a lot in there. More than you probably think, actually.

And the removable surface of the table is just the right size for our Coleman stove, with extra room for the fuel bottle and also setting a few things down next to it.

More Benefits

Other things we like about this product are the fact that it's sturdy, and the legs telescope, making it easier to carry, pack in our vehicle and store at home without having to take out the things in the bags. Before each trip, we just pull out the bags and restock as necessary.

We also like the tough, heavy-duty material and the fact that one of the storage bags (the blue one) is lined for use as a cooler and/or a sink as well as a storage container.

And when we aren't storing the rolled metal top in the zippered compartment on the back of the table, we use that compartment while in camp for things like a roll of paper towels, a dish towel, extra trash bags, and Zip-loc baggies. We store those things in the colored bags, but it's nice to spread things out a little while in camp for even easier access.

Really, we have no negative comments about this camp table and organizer and were happy with the quality. Matter of fact, now we want a second one.

Here's how we've got our Sherpa Table organized:

Blue Bag:

  • Plates
  • Bowls
  • Cups
  • Utensils
  • Mixing bowl
  • Griddle

Yes, we really can fit all of that in those four bags!

Our Sherpa Table in Use

This is our Camp Chef table, set up under a screened shelter in the Northern Arizona desert. Some strong winds and monsoon season storms passed through while we were camping, and the table/organizer held up just fine and didn't tip over.

The front of the storage area zips closed.

How to Set Up and Take Down the Sherpa Table

In this short video, you'll see how to telescope the table legs to make the Camp Chef into a "box" for easy carrying and storage, and also how to attach and stow the table top.

Here are a few camping items that go nicely with the Sherpa Table.

We've used our Coleman camp stove for years without fail, and these fit perfectly on top of the Sherpa Table.

Coleman makes a number of different stoves, but this one is really nice because, for one, it has a grill side which you can also use as a regular burner, and also the flame pressure is adjustable.

How about a stove AND an oven in one?

This is really nice if you'll be car-camping for an extended time, so you have even more meal options and can cook more food at one time.

A Campsite Wash Basin

While the Sherpa table does come with one bag--the blue one--that's got a waterproof liner so it can be used as a sink (boiling hot water is fine), we prefer to have a separate camp sink (one side for cleaning, the other for rinsing) and just use the blue bag for storage, without having to take everything out to wash dishes in it. But if you use that blue bag to keep your dishes and washing supplies in, it may already be empty--or mostly empty--already when it comes time to clean up.
