So you’re going on a camping trip and you’re not sure where to start when it comes to having easy meals on hand for the family. Here’s a few simple recipes and ideas that I took along with us last year when we went camping (or “glam”ping as I liked calling it) from weelicious and a few other sites I love.

Homemade Graham Crackers (and of course big bars of chocolate and a bag of marshmallows for s’mores!)


Wee Granola– the perfect breakfast with some milk or baggies full for a hiking pick me up!


Breakfast Sandwich: Make these at home, wrap them individually in foil and pop them over the fire to start the day.


Banana Dog Bites: Whether you bring all the ingredients with you or make them ahead, these are a fun lunch packed with everything you need to keep up your energy when you’re out and about.


Wild Wheat Berry Salad: Don’t forget to bring some whole grains on your trip!


Grilled Veggie Kabobs: I packed up tons of these kabobs in foil so all I needed to do was toss them on the camp fire.


Avocado Hummus: A creamy spread that’s perfect as a dip with cut up vegetables or in a pita pocket with some sliced tomatoes and sprouts.


Chocolate Chip Granola Bars: A camping trip just wouldn’t be a camping trip without them!


Skirt Steak Fajitas: We took these on our camping trip and they were a huge hit with everyone. Just marinade the meat at home and put it in a cooler. Don’t forget your sauté pan too! This is a definite “glamping” recipe, but when everyone’s stuffing their tortillas with guacamole and salsa, they’ll be thrilled!


Cheesy Corn on the Cob: Instead of steaming the corn, just toss it on the grill and then slather it with butter and cheese.


Spinach Cake Muffins: A big bag of greens isn’t going to stay fresh out in the woods, but don’t worry because by eating these you’ll still get your greens!


Banana Chocolate Chip Bread: There’s nothing like a big slice off this loaf for breakfast or even dessert!


Out of This World Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies: You can’t forget a big bag of these!


Peach or Strawberry Fruit Leather: If you don’t feel like lugging around big pieces of fresh fruit, this is a fabulous alternative!

  2. Catherine, has anyone told you today that you are awesome? Thank you so much for posting these….we are going to try a few this weekend when we camp on the Oregon Coast. If you’ve never been to the Coast it really is breath taking….cold and sometimes wet….but lovely. Thank you again for Weelicious. 🙂

  3. This makes me excited for camping this summer! I’m not sure how often we’ll get out, now that we have a baby, but we’re definitely going to try.

    What a great round-up of camping food; thanks for including my burritos. =)

  4. 🙂 I remember asking you about camping meals last year and you really didn’t have many. This year, you’ve got plenty! Thanks!!!

  5. This is great.. I always pack the kids up and camp on weekends.. Always looking for new healthier choices to make and enjoy on the road… 🙂 🙂 Thanks for sharing.. 🙂

  6. Now you post this – I was scratching my head for something more interesting than sandwiches, brats/burgers and campfire baked beans for our weekend canoe float trip! 🙂 Oh well, we’re going again in a few weeks, so I’ll be better prepared! Thanks for the great ideas!

  7. Hi Catherine, I was wondering if you ever made marshmallows? I just hate the amount of dye that’s in them. Thanks.

  8. wonderful post, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector don’t notice this. You must continue your writing. I’m sure, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
