Best All-Around Outdoor Firewood Rack
For a straightforward and highly-rated option that holds and protects a whole season’s worth of firewood, the Amagabeli eight-foot outdoor firewood rack is a strong choice. This stand assembles in a flash without tools. It’s ideal for a porch, deck, shed, garage, covered patio and more, and comes with a waterproof cover.
One Amazon five-star reviewer writes, “Sturdy, held the weight of a face cord without bending. Cover [is] plenty baggy enough to fit 24-inch logs with room. Was afraid it’d be fit like fitting a grill cover on but it’s nice.”
Best Large-Capacity Outdoor Firewood Rack
The ShelterLogic 12-foot heavy-duty firewood rack holds an incredible amount of split firewood to get you through a long, cold winter. It also keeps logs off the ground and away from moisture, meaning less mold, rot and bug infestation.
What’s more, the open design of this humongous holder allows air to flow freely, promoting proper wood seasoning. That results in less smoke and creosote build-up in your fireplace. It includes a cover.
Best Small Outdoor Firewood Rack
Stack wood neatly and decoratively outside, on the back porch or balcony, with the Adamczyk 17-inch metal log rack. It’s a great space-saving solution for apartment and RV dwellers. This steel rack holds enough logs for a wood stove or chiminea, and it folds to store in a utility closet or small shed.
A satisfied Wayfair customer gave the rack five stars, writing, “Perfect for my needs. This is on the patio to hold small logs for the fire pit. No assembly, just open and use.”
Best Handmade, Customizable Outdoor Firewood Rack
If you’re looking for an outdoor firewood rack like none other, consider the custom firewood racks from BlueCollarProducts. These U.S. made racks come in 1/8 cord and 1/4 cord sizes and can be customized with their in-house designs or one of your own. (No trademarked images that you don’t own, of course.)
Best Outdoor Firewood Rack With Kindling Holder
Wood may be the fuel, but kindling is the starter. This Doeworks firewood rack with gently curving I-beam reinforcements is extra-sturdy while keeping firewood neat and organized. The adjustable side hook, for suspending kindling, can face in to save space, or out to make more room for logs.
An Amazon reviewer gave this Doeworks firewood rack five stars, writing, “I like that we can place the kindling rack on the inside or outside of the wood rack, or leave it off altogether.”
Best Outdoor Firewood Rack and Accessory Storage
The Solo Stove Station, with a flexible, low-profile design, redefines backyard organization. The two-shelf unit lets you store 10- to 12-inch logs two rows deep leaving plenty of room for stashing fire pit tools and hanging up to 250 pounds of accessories.
The roll-down, outdoor-rated fabric cover, available in original black or premium ash gray, features a PVC coating to protect against moisture. And it keeps your deck or patio neat and tidy. The sturdy, cold-rolled aluminum Station is backed by a lifetime warranty.
Best Wheeled Outdoor Firewood Rack
Forged of sturdy black tubular steel and mounted on two 10-inch pneumatic wheels, the combo Sunnydaze firewood log cart and storage rack ensures that wood is always close at hand. Put it near the woodpile and fill it with approximately 25 pieces, depending on size.
We like this dolly for its durability and maneuverability. It rolls right up to your outdoor fireplace, wood stove or fire pit for easy off-loading. It saves your aching back!
Best Bargain DIY Outdoor Firewood Rack
Besides the reasonable price ($35), the SnugNiture outdoor firewood storage rack bracket kit lets you customize your log-holding capacity based on the amount of firewood you have (or don’t!). The kit includes two orange brackets (13-in. x 4-in. x 6-in.) plus 25 screws. Simply attach the brackets to six 2x4s (not included) in any length. It assembles in minutes, not hours.
A five-star Amazon reviewer wrote, “A breeze to assemble and seem strong enough to handle the 1/2 cord of wood I plan to stack in it. Just add 2x4s and your labor and you will have a fine woodpile. I think it took about 30 minutes to do everything and that included cutting the 2×4 upright lengths.”
Best Outdoor Firewood Rack Splurge
Give your covered outdoor living space extra panache with the angular lines and minimalist style of the Pottery Barn geometric firewood rack. Cristiana Crin of Perpetuum Designs in Chicago recommends pairing the rack with modern outdoor furniture to make an even more stunning statement. This firewood rack combines form and function in striking fashion.

Best Reclaimed Outdoor Firewood Rack/Shed
We admit this is more than a firewood rack, but what reader Tom Helm did with an abundance of pallets is truly impressive. If you have lots of space, access to free (or inexpensive) pallets and some time, use this project as inspiration for your well-ventilated, inexpensive outdoor firewood storage structure.
Best Hoop-Style Outdoor Firewood Rack
“Rounding” out our list is the UniFlame hoop-style firewood rack. This sleek, circular rack is made of durable solid-steel with an attractive black wrought iron finish. Go ahead and stack it to the brim — the 36-inch diameter frame holds more firewood than you might think. Plus, it folds down handily to store away when fireplace season is over.
Best Outdoor Firewood Rack Cover
Not all firewood racks come with a cover, but the Himal log rack cover fits the four- or an eight-foot rack you already have. It’s made of extremely durable, 600D (denier) polyester fabric with a thick, 100 percent rain, snow, dust and wind-proof polyurethane coating.
This cover gets bonus points for its dual air vents which prevent condensation. It’s a great all-season solution that keeps wood dry and ready to burn. As one Amazon reviewer/poet tells it, “I like dry wood. Wet wood is no good. This cover does what it should. 6 stars if I could.”
