Here you have our list of the best wood burning tent stoves. All stoves in this review include features that are ideal for cold weather camping. Please note that while there are many wood tent stoves on the market, not all of them are recommended. You can view our tents with stove jacks here. This review is designed to highlight the very best wood stoves for winter camping.
Camp Chef Alpine CS14
With a strong and durable steel construction, this is the best heavy-duty tent wood stove available. It has a weight of 74 lb (33.6 kg), with the walls measuring an impressive 1/8 inch (3 mm) of thickness. Despite having thick compartments, the stove features a smart design that allows everything to fit neatly inside the firebox.
The large cooking area makes this one of the best wood stoves for cooking, especially if you camp with your family. Either side of the cooking area are two racks, which are perfect for drying clothes, like damp socks.
This stove will be OTT for those travelling on foot. With that said, when stationary at base camp, you’ll be glad to have the extra space and features. The pipe is 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter, with a length of 10 ft (305 cm).
2. OHUHU Camping Stove
Coming in at only 14.2 oz, this camping stove from Ohuhu is the smallest tent stoves on the market. The stove is also by far the cheapest in this review. These two factors make this the best wood stove for backpackers, especially those who are on a budget.
Thanks to the three-base leg support, this camping stove is stable on all surfaces. Meaning all you need is to collect some leaves or twigs to have your own fire, anywhere.
If you’re just looking for the best small wood stove to boil water or small meals, then this efficient and lightweight camping stove is probably perfect. However, if you want to cook for group of friends or your family, then considering a larger freestanding tent stove like the Camp Chef Alpine.
3. Winnerwell Fastfold Titanium Tent Stove
With a foldable design and a weight of only 3.97 lb (1.8 kg) and a packed size of 15 x 9 x 2 inches (38 x 23 x 5 cm), the Winnerwell Fastfold is our best portable tent stove. In fact, it’s our favorite folding wood stove.
The best feature of this stove is the lightweight titanium material that it is crafted from. For starters, this material can withstand much higher temperatures than steel. Furthermore, the ultra-strong nature of this material allows for using a very thin stove thickness, resulting in a stove that is below 4 lb of weight.
As you may have realized from the name, this collapsible stove features a clever foldable design. This feature makes the stove excellent for those who want to reduce the total weight of their camping equipment. It’s compact enough to be thrown in your backpack, but tough enough to withstand bumps and knocks as you travel. The titanium tent stove sports a 900 cubic inch firebox, meaning it is large enough for both individuals and small families, making it one of the best titanium tent stove. However, this quality comes at a price…
Due to the sheer quality of this tent stove, the product is far more expensive than the other stoves in this review and of this brand. With that said, if you really want the best of the best, this is the stove for you. We would rather this stove had adjustable legs like the other Winnerwell stoves, but this would likely detract from the portable design, so we can’t complain too much.
4. Winnerwell Woodlander Large Tent Stove
With a 1500 cubic inch firebox, the Winnerwell Woodlander is our best wood stove for large tents. Typical of a Winnerwell, the military tent stove is crafted from premium materials, which is one of the reasons why this stove is more expensive than the other stoves on the market.
Another positive feature is the tri-pod style spring-loaded legs, which sits on a cylinder design, making it one of the best cylinder tent stoves. This gives the stove an unrivalled ability to be stable on any surface you place it. But don’t worry, all these cool features don’t retract from the portability of this tent stove. In fact, the legs fold flat under the stove, the chimney pipe sections stow inside body, and the side shelves function as carry handles. The pipe is 3.5 inches in diameter and the firebox size is 1500 in³.
