We have caught the camping bug and we are just running with it. We have already been yurting and tenting and we already have plans for more tenting and also a stay in some vintage trailers. I’m also currently searching for more tenting spots and have plans do a little cabin/yurt camping this Fall/Winter (yay for heated cabins and yurts!) While I am thrilled to be camping I still haven’t quite figured out the whole cooking/eating thing. I either am too ambitious, too boring or I over pack.
Last night we met up with friends and our littles to see a local children’s musician. After the show we headed out from dinner and since we both had just arrived home from camping that day we of course got to talking about our camping trips and the topic of food came up. When asked what we made I was really wishing I could have share some really fun and creative meals but instead all I could say was veggie dogs and veggie chicken sandwiches – can we say boring?
While I wish I was sharing a bunch of tips and inspired recipes I am instead asking (begging) for your help. Go crazy in the comments and share your favorite camping recipes, tips and foods. TIA!

I was looking for camping food ideas today and saw a suggestion to make burritos with whatever filling you like and then wrap them in foil. Apparently you can heat them in the fire and then they are all grilled and delicious. I am going to be trying that too. I love to cook at home, but cooking over a fire or packing and cleaning camp stove stuff doesn’t appeal to me at all. Burritos though, that definitely appeals to me! =-)
That is such a good idea! It’s one of those things that I feel like should be obvious but I don’t think I would have thought of that if you hadn’t mentioned it. Thanks for sharing!
Mm, I’m trying that too!
My biggest tip: Prep ahead of time! If I’m on top of my game, I’ll chop a ton of veggies (broccoli, peppers, onions, potatoes, etc – whatever I have on hand) and then when we’re at the camp site wrap them in foil to make a pouch. Then I throw ’em on the coals and get roasted veggies in about a half-hour. It’s soooo good! And it’s way easier than chopping a ton of food on a precarious, makeshift table.

Unfortunately I’m not too experience in the camping recipes area – However, I did just do a post about 7 kinds of s’mores to try!
We have done a egg/tofu scramble with veggies and could use veggie sausage and wrapped it in a flour tortilla for a breakfast wrap.
