Have you got your summer camping trip planned yet? If not, get on it! There’s nothing that resets the spirit quite like time in nature — and good food, good people and a place to pitch a tent is a great way to start. Once you’ve made your campsite reservation (we’ll wait), it’s time to plan the second-most important part: food.
If you’re like most of us, camp food is often one-note (salty or sweet), basic (hot dogs, burgers, marshmallows) and nothing to write home about. That’s OK, but it’s also OK to want more. Meals with more than one ingredient and a load of condiments. Desserts that surprise and delight. Even a breakfast that isn’t a granola bar or an apple would be excellent.
Luckily for you, the internet has plenty of examples for next-level camping meals, and we’ve rounded them up for you. Here are the best campfire recipes that will change how you feel about camp food.
