Camping Food List

Take a camping food list to make simple meals in the great outdoors


We like to keep it pretty basic when we go camping, but we love food and wouldn't be happy just eating baked beans.

It’s a really good idea to make up some meals before you go camping and take them with you in tupperware containers. That way you only have to heat them up and perhaps boil some pasta.

Some of our favourite pre-made meals are:-

  • bolognese
  • chilli con carne
  • risotto
  • marinade for vegetables or meat
  • soup

Trail bars (or better still - make some flapjack before you leave home and cut into slices)
