Camping is a summer activity that requires a limited amount of resources – you just can’t take everything with you when you’re out in the wilderness. Camping traditionally relied on canned soups, stews, and beans for meals, but with the rise of camping equipment and creative food bloggers, there are a ton of different delicious recipes that you can make over an open fire.
You can make these recipes over a campfire or in your own backyard over a grill or bonfire. However you share them, they’re sure to be a big hit!
