When you’re camping, you’re on vacation, so relaxation is key. Minimize the chore of cooking over the campfire by doing all the prep work at home before you leave. Need some ideas? Here are some of our favorite make-ahead camping meals.

Breakfast

  • Pre-made pancake mix: Everyone loves pancakes, especially when made over a fire. Make the mix ahead like you normally would at home and store it in plastic squeeze bags.
  • Scrambled eggs: Water bottles are crucial when camping, but they are for more than just storing water. Crack some eggs into an empty bottle with milk and scrambled egg seasonings, then pour over the pan when ready.

Lunch and Dinner

  • Sandwiches: Sandwiches are an easy lunch item, and you can make all of these ahead of time. Just keep the condiments and tomatoes off to keep the bread from getting soggy.
  • Chili: Make your favorite chili in a crockpot ahead of time, and then store it safely in your RV’s refrigerator. Reheat over the fire at dinner time.

Dessert

  • Cookies: Forget the graham crackers. Use cookies for your s’mores. Just bake a batch ahead of the trip and store them out of kids’ reach until it’s time for s’mores.
