Campfires are a favorite gathering place for telling stories, warming up when temperatures drop, grilling hot dogs, make s'mores, and so just enjoying each other's company. We love this Wood Burning Fire Pit from Bali Outdoors because it has a stable, secure metal frame, an outer ledge along the central fire area, and a separate FDA food grade cooking grill area that swivels 360 degrees for convenience. 

“My daughter and I put this together in about thirty minutes. I love that you can grill on it too, and make s'mores! Lots of fun sitting around the fire pit, I would purchase this again.” says Laura H. in her five-star review.

The set comes with five colorful handled telescoping forks that extend to 34 inches, an orange storage bag, and 10 bamboo sticks.

“love these roasting sticks, love the thumb wheel that turns the fork so the marshmallow or frankfurter cooks evenly. wish I had known about these a long time ago, beats unfolding the wire hanger like we did when I was a kid” says Agynes L  in her online review.

My friends all loved it and said they all wanted to get one before our next camping trip. It is durable and easy to clean as well as inflate. It was much easier to close than I was expecting as well.” says Rebekah S in her online review.
