One of my favorite parts of camping is cooking over a campfire. When we first started camping we always took a little gas grill just in case.  But we never used it and it took up a ton of space in an already tight car so last year on our trip to Yosemite, we didn’t bring the grill.  For three days we cooked all three meals over a campfire and it was amazing! We even made lobster tails on our last night.

Campfire Grate:  Some campsites have grates over their fire pits already, but you just never know what condition it’ll be in.  We bought one of these last summer for our Yosemite trip and loved it!


Multi-Spice Shaker: I got tired of packing little containers of my favorite spices so last year I bought this multi-shaker and love it. It has all the basics on one spot.


Lodge 12″ Cast Iron Pan: This is the one pan I take to cook in.  I don’t bother with a lot of different pots and pans because I don’t most everything right in here.



Silicone Oven Mitts: Cooking over a campfire gets really, really hot so you’ll need some kind of mitts. I like the silicone ones because they don’t get wet.


Pie Iron Sandwich Cooker: These are on my wishlist! There are so many fun recipes to use in them.



Easy Campfire Cooking: I get stuck in a rut with our camping menu.  This book looks like it has a lot of great recipes!


Campfire Treats cookbook:  I never know what to have for a little treat when camping and this book looks fun!



S’mores Skewers and Hot Dog Forks: Obviously, you’re going to want to make s’mores and maybe roast a hot dog or a brat.  Heavy duty forks are the way to go.


Folding Double Wash Basin: Unfortunately, you still have to do the dishes when camping. Don’t forget something to do the dishes in!


Cooking Utensils: I cook in camp with a spatula, a spoon, and a set of tons. But they always end up all over the place so I love this set that stays altogether.


Camping Percolator: I love making coffee over the campfire, but there’s a little bit of a learning curve.  Most of the time I make sure we grab a campsite close enough to a place that sells coffee for the morning, but we still have a percolator, just in case.
