Camping kitchens can be simple or elaborate, but the basics are always the same: a place to cook, eat, and store food. If you’re car camping, your kitchen will be based in your vehicle; if you’re backpacking, it will be limited to what you can carry on your back. No matter what your situation, these tips for cooking and eating in the great outdoors will help make your trip more enjoyable.
When it comes to cooking in a camp kitchen, there are two main options: using a stove or using a fire. If you have a stove, make sure you bring along enough fuel canisters or propane tanks to last the entire trip. If you’re relying on a fire, make sure you have plenty of kindling and wood to keep it going.
