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!

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)
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.)
