Camping cutlery sets – Top options

Camping utensil set – What to look for

Size

What size is the camping set you’re looking at? The options range from a compact all-in-one spork to a complete set for two or four people, including other items like plates, napkins, a cheese knife and so on.

Weight

The smallest camping cutlery sets may also be the lightest in weight – but this isn’t necessarily the case. Lightweight materials like titanium, bamboo and nylon keep the mass to a minimum, while some of the larger sets made from stainless steel and plastic are heavier.

Number

How may place settings do you want? Any of the single sets for one can obviously be bought in whatever number you require, while some sets inclde sufficient cutlery items for two or four people.

Materials

It’s not only the weight that’s affected by the materials – durability and longevity are also factors to take into account. While a set made from superior materials like titanium may cost more in the short term, it may mean you never need to buy another set.

Other items or uses

Some of the sets included in this guide come with other items, such as a bottle opener, chopping board, butter or cheese knife, napkins and even plates. A carry case is also a very useful inclusion. Some long-handed implements, meanwhile, are good for cooking as well as eating.

Camp utensil set – Reviews & recommendations

LifeVenture Ellipse interlocking cutlery set

Best interlocking set

There are two outstanding points to make about this contender as best camping utensil set. First off the price tag, which is incredibly affordable. Secondly, it’s interlocking, and therefore more space-saving as well as less likely to get lost.

This lightweight camping cutlery set comes in six colours and is dishwasher-safe. It’s a piece of kit recommended for those taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, which is good enough for me.

You can simply click these together for storage and the smooth, durable surface is tough yet easy to clean.

High points:

  • Great price
  • Interlocking set
  • D of E recommended

Low points:

  • Not the most durable of all

Tentock titanium camping cutlery

Best long-handled set

This is probably the best camping silverware when you want something portable and ultra tough, as it’s made from titanium. Made by Tentock, it’s available as a spoon and fork set, or the individual items are also sold separately.

There’s a reason the set is long-handled – you easily reach into food pouches such as those containing dehydated camping meals to get every last morsel. Which can be pretty important when you’re carrying your food and need as much energy as you can get for hiking.

Each piece of cutlery weights just 20 grams, so it’s ultra lightweight to transport. The long handles also mean it can double up as a cooking utensil, such as when stirring the pot.

High points:

  • 20 grams per piece
  • Ultra tough titanium
  • Long-handled for scraping & stirring

Low points:

  • Doesn’t feel like conventional cutlery

Sea to Summit Delta cutlery

Best carabiner set

These lightweight camping utensils from Sea to Summit are available in coastal teal or sunny yellow and are cleverly attached together by a matching carabiner. The camping eating utensils set comprises a knife, fork and spoon.

This set is actually made from nylon reinforced with glass, so it’s tougher than just nylon alone. The knife has one serrated side and one plain so you can easily use it for different applications.

Satisfied owners love the fact that this camping knife fork and spoon set fis snugly inside many bowls or pots, and that it feels far more like regular cutlery than a spork.

High points:

  • Feels like ‘real’ cutlery
  • Glass-reinforced nylon
  • Attached via matching carabiner

Low points:

  • No pouch included

TiTo titanium spork

Best all-in-one spork

If you want the best backpacking eating utensils all in one very practical package, then take a look at the TiTo spork. Made from titanium, it’s ultra lightweight, and is designed for doing everything on the campsite – from stirring the saucepan to serving as an all-in-one spoon and fork.

This clever camping cutlery tool comes in plain titanium, blue, pink or gold, and is also available as a two piece set in the regular colour. A boxed option is also offered, and the bag that comes with the other versions is fast-drying.

The handle is long enough to let you eat from food pouches, and happy owners say it’s incredibly tough.

High points:

  • Fast-drying bag or boxed option
  • All-in-one camping utensil
  • Ultra tough titanium

Low points:

  • No knife tool

Outlery pocket cutlery set

The Outlery camping utensils set is available in rainbow, black, rose gold, navy or silver. It’s stain-resistant, easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

The handles are fairly long on these, so you can use them while preparing food as well as when eating it. Made from stainless steel, this is an eco-friendly investment set that may mean you never need to buy another.

  • Pocket-sized set
  • Knife, fork & spoon

Jungle Culture bamboo cutlery set

Best bamboo set

Some of the best camping eating utensils are made from bamboo, and it’s a great eco-conscious and biodegradable choice. Jungle Culture is a British company that’s keen to eliminate single-use plastic products.

There are five pieces in each set, including a bamboo straw and a cleaning brush as well as knife, fork and spoon. A storage pouch is included, and this comes in red, teal, charcoal, brown or light grey.

Even the pouch is made using high quality materials, and you could pick a colour for each member of the group or family if you want to stick to using your own.

High points:

  • Includes straw
  • High quality jute pouch
  • Biodegradable bamboo

Low points:

  • Not as strong as metal

Light My Fire camping spork

Best double-ended spork

This innovative, Swedish-designed double-ended spork is a camping knife and fork plus spoon in one. It’s also made from polished lightweight titanium, and features a spoon at one end and a fork to the other.

The fork has a serrated edge to one side, so you can also use this part as a knife for cutting. It’s dishwasher safe and would be great for packed or takeaway lunches as well as camping and picnics.

If you’d rather invest in one item than a cheap plastic camping cutlery set, then this Sewdish spork is a great option.

High points:

  • Innovative Swedish design
  • Serrated knife edge
  • Lunchbox sized

Low points:

  • Can’t use fork and spoon together

Regatta camping cutlery set

If you want to bag a bargain, this is the one to go for. As they wrap up into a compact roll, they may also be the best backpacking utensils for a group on the move.

Factors in favour of this product include the respected Regatta brand, the solid yet lightweight design and the tough punch that keeps everything together.

This is the best cheap cutlery set around and ticks all the boxes when you want a set of spoons, knives and forks for four people.

High points:

Which are the best camp utensil sets for you?

The best camping cutlery set for you depends on what you want from it.

Likewise if you store them in a caravan or campervan – but don’t forget that on-the-go rattle factor!

From an all-in-one spork to a complete set for four, there are some great outdoor cutlery sets available right for happy campers all over the land.
