Warm weather means more and more plans are taking shape to get outside for overnight trips, which necessitates some good old camp cooking. Whether you go all out with extravagant plans or prefer to keep things simple, people are often passionate about their favorite campsite meals.

With so many questions on the topic shared across the community, we thought it would be fun to gather some recipes and photos of those dishes all in one place. If the community's previous responses about the best camping coffee setup and the absolute worst backpacking meals give us any clues, you all certainly have some stories about what you eat to fuel your long days outside!


Show us your best camping recipes and photos of those meals out in the wild!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
