Camping recipes are the most important part of planning a camping trip, don’t you think? If you don’t have good recipes, you don’t have good food! Just because you are away from your kitchen doesn’t mean you can’t do some good eating! I have gathered some yummy recipes and other camping food ideas so that the food at your next camping trip is top notch! Check out these great ideas for the perfect camping trip menu! As you plan ahead, think about whether you are taking a camp stove or cooking over the campfire. Also think about what size of cooler you will have and how many days you will be gone. Will you have access to more ice for your cooler to keep things cold when your ice melts? Those things will help you choose the most well-suited foods and cooking utensils.
Camping Recipes and Food Ideas
Camping Dinner Ideas
Hamburgers (if you won’t be eating it for a few days you may want to freeze it prior to putting it in your cooler)
Foil dinners (cut up meat, potatoes, carrots, and onions double-wrapped in heavy duty foil & cooked in the campfire)
Meat and Veggie kabobs
Bratwurst (with sauerkraut on it if you like…YUM!)
Tacos in a Bag (we did this at Yellowstone-just cook your taco meat, put in a ziploc, squeeze out extra air, seal, and freeze. Put in the cooler with containers of toppings and tortillas when you are ready to go camping. You just warm the meat at the campsite.)
Camping Side Dish Ideas
Pork ‘n Beans
Camping Snacks and Desserts
(You can make them all ahead of time!)
S’Mores (of course!) – everybody knows how to make those!
Camping Breakfast Ideas
Pancakes (Krusteaz mix is quick, easy, and yummy!)
