  • How to cook over a campfire with camp cooking equipment | National Park Foundation
    like this One large frying pan or skillet Two pots one small and one large with lids One spatula one large serving spoon and a set of tongs Kitchen knife and cutting board Tinfoil While it s not exactly essential another great camp cooking tool is a Dutch oven You can make just about everything in there from bread and biscuits to stews and desserts Bonus points if you bring a percolator for making coffee Most national park campsites include a fire pit with a built in grill top Check ahead of time to see if you need to bring your own grilling surface Tableware Table settings for your campsite can be pretty simple Some folks use paper plates and disposable silverware for camping but another eco and wallet friendly option is to bring reusable dishware Make sure you pack enough for each person to have one Plate and bowl Cup or mug avoid glass Knife fork and spoon Also be sure to bring a tablecloth You never know what s been scampering across that picnic table Food storage Keeping your food fresh and safe from hungry critters is one of the biggest camping challenges Unless you re camping in a modern RV with a fridge and icebox you re going to need to bring a cooler or two as part of your camp cooking equipment For most camping trips one large cooler for food and another smaller one for drinks should have you covered Keep them both well stocked with ice and pack a few sturdy zipper bags for storing leftovers Be sure to research what the food storage options will be at your campsite Some campgrounds will have food storage lockers while others will encourage you to keep your supplies in the safety of the car so just be sure to keep in mind the park regulations and the local wildlife If you re camping in bear country always upgrade to tough bear resistant containers for food Some national parks including Yosemite Yellowstone and Sequoia have campsites with bear resistant food lockers also known as bear boxes Food and drink OK this is where you get to have a little fun What you choose for camp cuisine depends entirely on personal preference and how much food you re willing to pack Just remember not to overdo it especially with perishable items like meat and dairy Expect to shave a day or two off any expiration date when you keep food in a cooler Plan your menu in advance so you can make sure there s enough food to keep everybody happy for the duration of your trip Choose healthy high energy food to keep you fueled for all the fun stuff you ll be doing like hiking fishing and kayaking Clean drinking water is the one absolute essential One gallon of water per person per day is a good general rule Check ahead of time to see if your chosen campground has potable water Even if it does
