Recipes perfect for camping, or cookouts with minimal prep and ingredients. These 50 fabulous camping recipes will save the day, and your sanity!

We’re heading out on a five day camping trip and with a new addition in tow! Last year, I was 7 months pregnant with Harrison. Emmett was 2, and it was a learning experience to say the least! Rainstorm, flat air mattress, having to pee every hour… Now, we’re going for two extra nights, and with a BABY! I need all the shortcuts I can get.

I’ve dropped in 50 fabulous camping recipes (lol, jk – there are like nearly 60! I couldn’t choose what to cut!) that will help get you through your summer excursions, from camping breakfasts, to desserts, dinners, and more. I love foil dinners, easy to prep camping meals, fun campfire desserts, and kid friendly make ahead meals. See what else is on this must have list!
