Fireside Outdoor Pop-Up Fire Pit Review

Jared Shaffer

As an avid camper, the centerpiece of any memorable evening is, of course, THE FIRE. Like peanut butter without jelly, it’s not a camping trip without the fire! If you have spent any time at different campgrounds throughout the U.S., you will agree that some fire pits are just a pain, and some almost unusable. The Pop-Up Pit from FireSide solves that problem in a lightweight package that folds up smaller than your standard camp chair!

I enjoy hunting deer and hogs as much as the next guy, but truthfully the majority of my time in the woods these days is spent hunting small game with my 10-year-old daughter.
