How Does The Little Kamper Work?

Little Kamper 1lb propane tank exchange is just like a BBQ tank exchange except that these smaller tanks are designed for portable propane appliances like table-top BBQ’s, camp stoves, lanterns, heaters, and other handy devices for outdoor recreation.

Unlike disposable propane tanks, the Little Kamper has all of the design features necessary to be safely refilled by propane professionals. You purchase the Little Kamper pre-filled and ready to go.

Use the Little Kamper until it runs out and then bring it back to an authorized Little Kamper retailer for an exchange. You reduce waste every time you return an empty Little Kamper for an exchange. It’s an environmentally conscientious way to refuel your fun!

  • The Little Kamper is DOT certified for 12 years – 12 years of camping, tailgating and zero-waste fun outdoors!
  • Buy 2-3 so you’ll never run out of propane – an extra tank can save you a trip to the store when you are short on time!
  • Stop throwing away propane tanks – you’ll reduce the trash in our parks with every re-use!

The Little Kamper is certified by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) as a refillable propane container. It has the necessary safety features to be refilled hundreds of times by a qualified propane technician. When you purchase Little Kamper cylinders, you will be able to exchange them when they are empty for full cylinders at any participating Little Kamper retailer.

Why Should You Buy a Little Kamper Refillable Propane Cylinder?

It’s simple. Propane is by far the most popular choice for cooking outdoors. It’s easier and cleaner than charcoal. It’s safer and easier than white gas.

The problem is the throw-away 1lb propane cylinder. The popularity of propane as a camping and tailgate party fuel has resulted in an enormous amount of disposable cylinders being left in trash containers at our parks and recreation facilities. In California, we spend so many days every year visiting our Local, Regional, State and National parks that the disposal of 1lb propane tanks has become a significant problem.

Kamps Propane is underwriting the cost of introducing the Little Kamper refillable propane cylinder as a way of taking an active role in reducing the negative impact of these disposable propane tanks. We believe that our customers will gladly choose a reusable propane tank when offered the opportunity.
