  • Also what are good easy things to cook while camping? We are taking a tent and small grill.

  • My favorite is a hotel room key!

    Sorry, no advice, I'm not much of a camper. My MIL is the queen of camping though! Here's a bump for you.

  • Plenty of bug spray and sunblock! Portable cooking utensils, and a small tub for washing dishes. As far as cooking, we do things like hot dogs, hamburgers. Eggs in the morning. Lunch meat for sandwiches. Easy things that don't take too many pots or pans to cook. Have fun! I love camping!

  • first aid kit, small sewing kit, duct tape, sunblock, bug repellent. You can put burgers and vegies in individual foil packets and cook them for easy cooking, serving, and clean up.

  • There are all kinds of things you can cook right in the camp fire!

    pre roll some burrito's, a simple recipe like beans, rice meat & cheese, wrap it in tin foil, then throw it in the ash in the campfire, somewhere on the side where it's not getting direct heat. Rotate it with a stick a few times & there ya go!

    You can also cut up some potato, onion & slice any kind of sausage. Wrap in in the tin foil, you want to make like a pouch, don't wrap too tightly, and again, throw it in the fire, in the ash away from direct heat & let cook for about 20. You can put spices in there too.

    Hot dogs are always easy & fin for kids.

    I usually cook everything in the camp I'll bring a metal bbq grate & just set it on some rocks in the fire & do my grilling there. Of course, you don't want to put it in the hottest part of the fire. Before you get the fire going, you can set up some rocks in there to make it even.
