Our family has been camping since our girls were tiny- it’s one of our favorite inexpensive activities in the summer and fall and it has been so fun to see the girls fall in love with the great outdoors as much as my husband and I do. I love everything about camping- sipping coffee (or a good whiskey) by the fire, going on long walks around the campsite, laying by the lake, going on night walks to stargaze… but what I might love even more than all of those things is camp cooking! I have so much fun coming up with fun, unique ideas to cook over the campfire and on the camp stove.
One of the best parts of camp cooking, I think- is not just enjoying the meal fireside, but how little equipment you truly need for a delicious meal.
Whether you’re a make-ahead and re-heat camper or a cook-it-all-over-the-fire camper, here are some of our family’s favorite camping meals:
