15+ Easy and Delicious Camping Recipes

15+ easy recipes to make your next camping trip the most delicious yet! From classic camping recipes to desserts and fun meals like campfire nachos! Nothing tastes better than food enjoyed outdoors.

It’s camping season and I’m super excited about it! Do you camp? Or maybe you glamp? We do a little of both…a little bit of roughing it and a little bit of glamping it! Especially in the food department, we certainly don’t go hungry. In fact we eat really well…once we even roasted a bone-in ham…a full ham! I’m still amazed that we did that, but it was so worth it because we had ham for dinner then ham with eggs at breakfast, then ham sandwiches! Genius really.  😉

Simple, tasty and perfect for camping!

Anyway, to make your camping life a little easier I rounded up some delicious dishes that we eat on our trips. Many of them are simple to make right on site, others require a little prep at home but are pretty much ready when you get to where you’re going. The key is, if you can get your food prepped ahead of time, you have more time to spend doing what you love to do while enjoying the great outdoors! Because camping and campfire cooking is the best!

15+ Easy and Delicious Camping Recipes

Camping Breakfast Sandwiches

Nothing better than a breakfast sandwich enjoyed in the great outdoors! Made with simple ingredients like eggs, bacon, cheese and tomatoes in a bun, for a hearty start to your day.

Best Ever Buttermilk Pancakes

There’s nothing quite like pancakes cooked over the campfire! This tried and true buttermilk pancake recipe is perfect for camping. Mix up a batch of the dry ingredients before you head out camping, then just add eggs and milk when you’re ready to make them. Eating pancakes in the great outdoors is one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Camping Tacos in a Bag

The great thing about these camping tacos, is that every camper can make their very own bag for dinner! Make them with your favourite nacho chips, and all of your favourite taco toppings! Tip! Cook the ground beef at home and bring it ready to go for your trip.

Brown Sugar Baked Granola & Trail Mix

Make up a batch of trail mix before you head out camping. This mix is perfect for snacking – you can pack it up in individual containers/ziplock bags and take them with you when you hit the trail! Or you can enjoy it for breakfast as well!

Sausage Breakfast Skillet

A hearty and delicious breakfast that can be easily tailored to your tastebuds! We like our Sausage Breakfast Skillet with breakfast sausages, onions, leftover potatoes and peppers.

Campfire Chili

I like to make this beef chili ahead of time and bring it along on our camping trips all ready to go. Just heat over the campfire and serve! This is so appreciated after a long day outdoors, especially on cold camping days – it fills and warms you up! Making this chili ahead of time makes this one of my most favourite and easy camping meals.

Campfire Nachos

These are always a big hit on our camping trips! Just pre-cook the beef at home, then assemble the nachos in a tin pan, cover and heat over the campfire and serve. Make sure to pack along salsa!

Banana Boats

These camping treats are made with whole bananas, chocolate and marshmallows. That’s it. You mash them all together then cook them in the fire and you get a delicious melted chocolate treat that will leave you wanting more! See how to make these banana boats here.

Campfire Baked Ham

Yes! You can bake a ham over the fire! And the leftovers are great for breakfast and ham sandwiches for lunch. 

Veggie + Sausage Shish Kabobs

These Veggie + Sausage Shish Kabobs can be assembled at home (uncooked) and transported in a disposable container. Just cook them directly on the grill or on a piece of tin foil. This is my favourite camping meal of all!

Campfire Sausage, Zucchini & Pepper Skillet

This Campfire Sausage, Zucchini + Pepper Skillet is a hearty and delicious campfire meal! Skillets are great because you can tailor them to your tastebuds, not to mention the fact that cooking a dinner in one pan is the best!

Chicken Cape Kabobs

These Chicken Kabobs can be assembled at home (uncooked) and transported in a disposable container. Just cook them directly on the grill or on a piece of tin foil. These are a little more fancy…definitely glamping food!

Campfire Roasted Bacon Wrapped Corn on the Cob

Need I say more? The only thing we’d do different with these Campfire Roasted Bacon Wrap Corn on the Cobs next time is to wrap them in more bacon. Wrap in aluminum foil and cook them on the grill over the fire. These are our one of our most favourite camping side dishes.

Orange Ginger Chicken

This one-pan Orange Ginger Chicken recipe is so simple to assemble and cook over the fire! And it will almost leave you feeling like you’re fine dining, but in the woods, with dirty hair and clothes.

Campfire Roasted Potatoes

Campfire potatoes are the best! They just get all crunchy and delicious cooked in foil packets over the fire. We always make a big batch so we can use the leftovers for hash browns in the morning. Yum.

Chopped Mexican Corn & Bean Salad

I’m not sure if this Chopped Mexican Corn + Bean Salad is a salad or a dip? At any rate, it’s perfect for lunch (or a snack) served with nachos. SO good!

More Camping Recipe Ideas:

  • Burgers made on a camping barbecue or grill over the fire
  • Hot Dogs or Smokies
  • Campfire pizza

S’mores

You can’t go camping without s’mores! It would be a crime. One way to have the making of s’mores be easier is to take all of the ingredients ready to go: remove all the wrappers and put all the s’more supplies in one easy to access container!

  1. I think we’re going to take the kids camping for the first time ever this summer! Can’t wait to use some of these recipes… pinned to my camping board so we can plan ahead!

  2. I’m going on a mission trip and thought I’d take a peak at your ideas since we will be cooking with limited supplies. I have a few new ideas to bring on the trip with me. I like the idea of making the potatoes and making extra for the next day’s breakfast. Perfect!

  3. What an amazing compilation of tasty treats. Now, if I could just convince my video game-loving husband to spend one single night outdoors…
