Here is our list of easy and hassle-free camping dinner ideas to keep you fueled for your next adventure.

Anja and I have been camping since we met 11 years ago, and our first campouts were about bringing water, energy bars, nuts, dates, and fruits. We were lazy and didn’t want to spend time cooking outdoors.

But today, we actually understand the importance of camping food from physiological and sociological aspects.

Campfire cooking makes camping more magical and brings people together simultaneously.

The most important thing we learned along the way is that you should be able to maintain flavor and quality even if you’re cooking outdoors!

After years of camping and countless adventures, we’ve narrowed down this list of camping dinner recipes that are our go-to’s – easy camping meals when we need something tasty with minimal cleanup.

Here are some kitchen essentials to consider packing for your trip:

  • Stove: A stove is essential for cooking while camping. Choose a stove appropriate for your needs, such as a propane stove for car camping or a compact, lightweight stove for backpacking.
  • Pots and pans: Pack pots and pans suitable for your cooking needs. If you plan on cooking over a fire, consider packing a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven.
  • Utensils: Pack a variety of utensils such as spoons, forks, knives, spatulas, and tongs to help with meal prep and cooking.
  • Cooler: A cooler is essential for storing perishable items such as fresh fruits, vegetables, tofu, and yogurt. Pack your cooler with plenty of ice or ice packs to keep the food at a safe temperature.
  • Water bottles or hydration system: Ensure to pack plenty of water bottles or a hydration system to stay hydrated while camping.
  • Dishwashing supplies: Pack dishwashing supplies such as dish soap, scrub brushes, and a towel to help clean up after meals.

If you want to spend less time meal planning and more time enjoying your adventures, keep these camping dinner ideas bookmarked.

We split it into categories to make it easier for you to navigate through.

  4. Bake: Remove the Dutch oven from the heat. Add the marinade (liquid, prunes, olive, capers, and all!) to the dutch oven and cover. Bake for 30 minutes until the thighs are cooked and their juices clear when pierced with a knife. Evenly distribute 18 coals on the lid and set the Dutch oven on a bed of 9 coals.
