I try not to work while camping, that is worse than watching television.
Courtenay doesn't work while camping either, even if he wanted to do so, not something that would work where we go. However, my "work space" during cmpaing is so I can do things I enjoy, working on quilts and reading.

There is that, I don't have a TV, but I do like puttering with certain crafts and sketching when out for longer trips.
Yes, having a good work station is important to enjoy doing my sewing, etc., as I've found through the years. I see photos of the FB RV Quilters set up at campsite picnic tables and it just makes my joints hurt to see. The proportions are usually just so bad for me that eating a meal at one is long enough to sit at one, not to mention so many have wide spaces between section, warped and splintery wood if that's what they're made of, etc. I made strap-on covers we used when we still cooked at site tables, but they only did just so much to make the table usable.

This portable tripod desk is kind of neat. Probably wouldn't be hard to make one if I find a tripod in Goodwill, or a thrift store. A weight of some sort hung underneath might make it even more stable.

If I recall my dad built, or modified a portable easel for mom for when her cross-stitch projects. Although by that time they were snow birds and had a park model trailer in Texas so they weren't "camping" at that point.

The table and sofa are fine for me. All I need is somewhere to put my laptop; a table, or my lap. By way of equipment: Laptop, charger, earbuds, travel mouse, travel router, and my computer glasses since my eyes are getting old.
