Camping Recipes and Food Ideas

As you plan ahead, think about whether you are taking a camp stove, on a grill, 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 for your camping trip and which cooking utensils you need to take along.

Are you ready to check out my list of ideas and start writing your camping menu?  Okay!  Let’s get to it!
