Camp Table ideas?

I am currently looking for a good compact camping table and have not found anything that looks like it would last very long. Any ideas?

"Compact" can mean a lot of things.

I have had mine for 4 years or so...

I have used roll-a-tables for field work and personal camp use for about 7 years and have found them to be extremely durable and sturdy.

You can find them at REI and CampMor

I worked on a native fish field team on the Colorado River for 3 years and we were on the river almost every week camping and working. Loading up we'd throw these tables into the boats/trucks and out on the lake we'd throw them out onto the rocky/sandy beaches where we were working. We'd use them for processing large fish up to 3' long and we'd use them for cooking. They've got a handy mesh pocket to store the legs and to hold stuff while you're cooking. These are awesome tables.

This is the one I use, it fits inside a pelican 1650 and is close in height to 2 stacked 1650's. It's very small, but gets the job done. If I pull the pelican's out of the truck I have a large work area between them and the table.

I sort like a larger table so that I can sit, eat, and even cooking in a standing position comfortably.

REI used to carry this table, but I checked and it's no longer listed.

When it's all packed up, its size is comparable to a folding chair.
