Reusable Camping Propane Cylinders

Purchase a Refillable Cylinder

Disposable propane cylinders are expensive! Only 20% of the purchase price is for the gas inside. The other 80% percent is for packaging. Refillable can be reused hundreds of times for up to 12 years and they cost less than $15. At that price, a cylinder pays for itself after four refills. Using refillables also cuts down on the millions of pounds of steel packaging waste generated by single-use disposables.

Where to Purchase

You can buy or refill cylinders in and around the park at the following locations. California Product Stewardship Council is working hard to add new vendors to the growing network for refillable cylinders. Can't find a location near you? Ask your local store to offer refillables.
