The sustainable cooking solution is here!

Little Kampers refillable propane canisters are the brand new sustainable option for campsite culinary coolness. Never again toss a green disposable canister into the garbage. Rent a Little Kamper at Rec the next time you head to Big Sur, Yosemite or a local beach cookout!

Little Kamper
     It Saves Money – Little Kamper refills are much cheaper than disposable propane tanks.
     It Reduces Waste – Re-using your Little Kamper is the green way to cook outdoors.
     It Helps Our Parks – throw-away propane tanks are a big problem at campsite trash bins.
