The 10 Best Camp Sinks
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in May of 2016. Who says hiking and camping have to be dirty and messy experiences? With one of these camp sinks, you can maintain your personal hygiene, wash dishes, and even clean clothes while enjoying the great outdoors. We've selected simple, bucket-like options for those who don't have a lot of room, as well as larger stations with food preparation space for those who are seeking something a little fancier. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Due to ongoing issues with leaks, we've decided to remove the Joseph Joseph Wash & Drain. There are plenty of collapsible bucket options to choose from that hold up well, including the Seattle Sports Jumbo and the UST FlexWare. Note that while these are simple and affordable, some can collapse or spill if you are too rough on them in use. If that's a dealbreaker, you might consider a larger, more robust choice. At this end of the spectrum, we've unfortunately had to remove the Cabela's Outdoor Deluxe due to availability issues, but the GCI Outdoor Master Cook Station is a great alternative. It was designed for portability and functionality, with plenty of tabletop space as well as a wire rack that can hold up to 35 pounds. We've also added the Deluxe Camping Filtration and the SereneLife Basin, which offer a true sink-like experience, rather than a large food prep area. The former has a bucket to catch the used water, while the latter does not, so expect to provide one of your own.
Trail Kitchens Wrangler Camping System Even though the Trail Kitchens Wrangler Camping System was made for, you guessed it, the Jeep Wrangler, it is compatible with some SUVs and trucks, including the Range Rover and the Subaru Outback. You can expect all the bells and whistles you need for a comfortable food prep experience, from LED lighting to an optional water heater. trailkitchens.com
Bass Pro Shops Deluxe The Bass Pro Shops Deluxe is a top-notch choice that will make you feel at home in the wilderness. It features plenty of usable work space, with a removable basin in the main tabletop, and it's got hooks and racks, so your spices and utensils will be right at your fingertips. basspro.com
