Camping Recipes

Looking for some easy recipes to try on your next camping trip? These recipes aren't gourmet meals that people will brag about on Pinterest. They're simply, easy, and quick meals that are sure to please kids (and adults) of all ages.

Three Ingredient Pancakes

These made from scratch pancakes are super easy and use only three ingredients. There's nothing like hot pancakes and syrup on a cold morning by the campfire.

Favorite Creamy Pasta Salad

A quick and hearty pasta salad is great fuel on a camping trip. This recipe is vegetarian, but you could take canned chicken or tuna and add for extra protein.

Campfire Cones

Campfire cones are a fun alternative to s’mores for a camping dessert. Below is basic recipe, but you can mix it up with different types of candy or cut-up fruit.

Campfire Pigs in a Blanket

Roasted hotdogs over a campfire is a quintessential camping meal. Take the fun up a level without more work with camping pigs in a blanket. In addition to the ingredients listed below, you’ll need a set of skewers.

Sweet and Spicy Almond

Nuts are the perfect hiking snack, but store bought seasoned nuts can have a lot of sodium in them. Make your own, season to your taste. Better yet, make a big batch to enjoy before Thanksgiving dinner and pack the rest to go.


The first published recipe for this campfire treat was published in the Girl Scout guide book in 1927. While the recipe is simple, there's a certain technique that needs to be mastered to perfectly roast marshmallows.

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

If camping on a chilly night, peppermint hot chocolate is a real treat. Kids will love how the candy melts in the hot chocolate...

Walking Tacos

Walking tacos is a favorite with kids. They are called walking tacos because technically, they are portable, but in practice, you’ll probably want to eat them sitting around a campfire or picnic table.

Breakfast Scramble

There's nothing like a hot breakfast when it's cold outside. A hearty breakfast scramble hits the spot and is easy to make, especially if you prep at home. Cook over the campfire in a dutch oven or use a cast iron pan on a camping stove.

Dutch Oven Cinnamon Apple Bake

A yummy recipe from the National Ability Center's rafting program. In July, we'll interview the NAC's rafting program manager.

Black Bean Salad

You can make this simple salad at home or at the campsite. Bean salads are a great way to get some veggies on the road without worrying about wilting greens!
