Who says you can’t cook while camping? As long as you have the right tools, preparing a delicious gourmet meal out in the woods is easy! Before your next trip, make sure you have these eight tools for camp cooking.
1. A camp stove
Not every meal has to be grilled or prepared using a stick. There are plenty of camp stoves available that are lightweight and easy to pack.
2. Pots and pans
If you’re going to bring a stove, you’ll need some pots and pans, too!
This can be forgotten easily. When packing your knife, make sure you put a plastic cover over the blade for protection.
Bring along a spatula that can handle both heavy and lightweight foods. That way you can use the same spatula while cooking your steak and potatoes.
5. Portable camp kitchen
You’ll need a place to store your kitchen items and prepare food. Pack a portable kitchen to make camp cooking a breeze.
6. Can opener
It would be frustrating to bring cans of beans and vegetables and then not be able to open them!
If you’re preparing a late-night meal, a headlamp can help you see so you avoid injury. It’s a lot more convenient than trying to hold a flashlight.
8. Cleaning supplies
Before you prepare each meal, make sure your pots, knives, and spatulas are clean. When washing dishes, keep at least 200 feet away from the lake or river so you don’t impact the natural environment.
