Camp Cooking Tips

If you’re new to camping, or it’s been a while, here are a few camp cooking tips to refresh your memory from Fresh Off The Grid

  • Make a menu, write out your grocery list, and go shopping a day or two before your trip. We find it way less stressful to go about it this way, rather than showing up at the grocery store without a plan on the way to the campsite. If needed, print out any recipes you need so you don’t have to rely on cell service in the woods.
  • Prep as much of your food ahead of time as possible—you’ll appreciate not having to chop veggies or put together marinades or sauces at the campsite.
  • Learn how to pack a cooler so you can safely transport perishable items like meat and eggs—a lot of your cooler’s performance comes down to how you pack it, not which cooler you use!
  • Try out your camp stove before your first trip. Set it up out on your patio or other outdoor space and cook a dinner or two on it. This way, you can get a feel for how it works without the high stakes of being at a campground.
  • Organize your camp kitchen in a bin before your trip, referencing your camping checklist, so that you don’t forget a critical item at home. If you plan on going camping a lot, you may consider picking up duplicates of common items, like spatulas, knives, and a can opener, so that they are always in your camp bin and never left behind.
  • Start cooking a bit earlier than you think you need to. If all goes to plan, you’ll just eat dinner a little early, but if there are any hiccups along the way, at least you won’t be eating and cleaning up in the dark!
