What are some good foods to bring camping?

I know about hotdogs, hamburgers, steak and popcorn but do you have any ideas on what other foods to bring camping? I've only been camping once and am going this weekend!

  • I love prepping food at home, putting it in baggies and then making tinfoil dinners. Do up some veggies and meat, put your food in a tinfoil packet and toss it in the fire to reheat. :)

  • S'mores, of course! Eggs and milk, too. We use separate coolers for that - they sell plastic waterproof egg holders at Walmart. Dried cereal is good. Bread - can't forget the bread. Condiments and such, too. Take a watermelon and put it on ice - that's always yummy. All kinds of fruits, too. Bananas don't really do too well but apples, oranges, etc....and WATER - lots of it. You can take pretty much the same things that you would eat at home; it just takes a cooler or 3! have a good time and be safe - there are going to be a lot of foolish folks out this weekend.

  • Snacks!!! Especially if kids will be there, lots of snacks!!! Granola bars, chips and dip, cheese and crackers, chex mix....... We always cook a frozen pizza and keep it cold in the cooler for a snack. We also make omelets. Put all ingredients in a baggie and put baggie in pot of boiling water for 20 min. I agree, bring a couple coolers- one for drinks and one for food.

  • Beef jerky! I never go without it. Protein bars incase u go on a hike and can't stop to eat. A can of nuts. Oh and some ppl dont know but if u want chili or anything in a can, u can open the lid and throw the entire can on the grill to cook it, saves needing pots. Oh, bring foil too for anything you might grill.

  • Corn on the cob is a favorite of ours. Grilled cabbage, grilled brats, breakfast tacos, oooh, baked potatoes on the grill are amazing too.

  • party mix, trail mix, coffee-and fixings, bananas to make banana boats=bananas sliced down the middle and stuffed with mini marshmallow and mini chocolate chips wrapped in tinfoil and placed on the open fire for 3-5 minutes until warmed. cheese and crackers, meat sticks, have fun.
