From getting your fire started to cooking up some treats, here are the best campfire accessories to keep in your RV…
When people think of camping, they immediately visualize people sitting around a campfire, telling stories, and cooking s’mores. It’s a highlight of every RV trip.
It’s always a perfect way to finish off a day of adventure, and the following campfire accessories make it that much more enjoyable.
I start off the list with easier ways to get your fire started, then cooking & dessert tools, and then finish the list with a firework-like display.

10 Best Campfire Accessories
This list focuses on smaller campfire accessories directly related to the fire itself. I have other videos (like above) and articles on bigger RV camping accessories, including the best portable camping fire pits and best camping chairs.
But if you already have your camp setup, here are accessories to take your campfire evening to the next level.
This 2-piece fire pit poker is one of the more versatile options on the market. For one, it breaks down into 2 pieces, so it’s easier to store. And two, it’s also a blow poke.
What’s a blow poke? It’s a hollow poker that you can safely use to breathe oxygen into the fire. It makes it easier to start a fire and keep it going.
I know many of us just use a big stick as a poker whenever we’re camping, but this is a safer option. It gives us more control over lighting and maintaining the fire.
The blow poke helps you start a fire, but you don’t have to rely on your lungs if you have this fire starter pack. These small yet mighty cubes get your flame going safely, easily, and quickly.
These water-resistant cubes are a blend of wood and wax. So, you don’t get any dangerous flare-ups or unwanted flavors in your food as you do with fluid fire starters.
You don’t need any kindling with these starters since they burn up to 10 minutes on their own.
Now that your fire’s started, it’s time to move on to the food campfire accessories! Before we get to the s’mores, let’s start with the main meals.
This campfire grill is the most versatile, as it has a griddle and grate. Perfect for pancakes, steaks, burgers, veggies, and more!
Best of all, it folds down to an easy-to-store size. Granted, most of us RVers have a portable grill (not to mention a kitchen), but sometimes it’s fun to cook right over the campfire.
If you love paninis, this is one of the best campfire accessories for you. It’s great for making grilled sandwiches, but it works for all kinds of food.
You can use it to make campfire sandwiches, mini pizzas, homemade hot pockets, or even cinnamon rolls.
It’s really easy to clean by just wiping it and rinsing it with warm water.
When most people think of campfire food, they usually don’t think of vegetables. But these kebab grills make eating healthier while camping fun and easy.
This set comes with 4 grilling baskets and 2 skewers. They work just as well on your grill as they do over the campfire.
Just slide on some shrimp, chicken, or beef with your vegetables, and you’re good to go!
When you’re ready to tell great campfire stories, you can whip out this popcorn kit. This starter pack comes with an open-fire popper, 5 popcorn bags, 4 season sampler, and 4 disposable tubs.
The popper has an extendable handle to keep you safe and make it easier to store. It pops 4 quarts of popcorn in just 4-5 minutes.
It makes a great gift, either as a wish list item for yourself or to give to a fellow RVer.
No campfire accessories list would be complete without s’more sticks. But in actuality, these roasting sticks are for more than s’mores.
They’re of course great for hot dogs, sausages, and anything else you can jab on there. This pack comes with 5 forks that extend to 32 inches long. When collapsed, they’re only about 12” long.
But s’mores aren’t the only campfire treat you should be considering…
Wolf’em roasting sticks have an easy-turn handle and double hotdog skewers. Best of all, they have a biscuit cup!
With a biscuit cup you can make one of our favorite campfire treats. It’s like a fireside pie that you make with only 3 ingredients.
You simply wrap biscuit dough around the cup and “bake” it over the campfire. Then you fill it with pie filling and top with whipped cream.
What’s dessert without a nice warm mug of coffee or tea? This all-in-one campfire accessory can boil, brew, and cook.
The highlight for me is the french press coffee maker, but it’s also great for heating up tea or even soup. Now, I know you probably own one of the best coffee makers for RV travel but this is still a fun accessory.
It’s practically indestructible with its stainless steel design and it’s very easy to clean. You can even pop it in the dishwasher.
10. Magical Flames
Why not end the night with a light show?! You can mesmerize kids and adults alike with these magical flames.
You simply toss in 2-3 unopened packs into the fire, and colorful flames ensue. They produce every color of the rainbow, including purples, reds, greens, and blues. They seem to last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.
**Please keep in mind these are chemical-based. Avoid breathing in the smoke, and DO NOT cook anything over these flames. I don’t recommend using a lot of packets at once or too often. These are just a fun, once-in-a-while option to enjoy.
