Camping food is fabulous, isn’t it? If you’re thinking, “Uhhh… not so much,” you’re probably making the same mistake many of us have by resorting to canned and pre-packaged foods. You can leave those things behind and instead have food that’s just as good as what you make at home – made even better by relaxing with your family around the campfire.

This list of camping recipes includes everything you need to make yummy meals any time of day while you’re camping. From tasty breakfast recipes to start your day, like campfire cinnamon rolls and French toast foil packets, to kid-friendly dinners like walking tacos and campfire cheesesteaks, your family will be well-fed. We’ve even thrown in some dessert recipes that you can make on the grill, open fire, or in the Dutch oven.

Pick a few to try on your next camping trip. You’ll be glad you did!
