Camping is one of my family’s favorite hobbies. I’ve pulled together 30 creative camping recipes that I plan to add to our next trip’s menu. Choose from burgers and kabobs to hearty breakfast ideas and sweet treats. You’ll find a delicious variety for your next camping trip.
Save time by prepping ingredients, such as cleaning and chopping the vegetables or marinating chicken breasts before your trip. With many of these recipes, you can place ingredients in bags and freeze before your trip. The more you do before you trip, the less you have to do when you don’t have your kitchen’s modern conveniences.
