“Camp Kitchen” Checklist

Elvis Elvis

Imagine coming from your camp kitchen, the smell of bacon frying and coffee brewing when you crawl out of your tent first thing in the morning; assuming someone else got up before you to make them.
If properly equipped, you can create gourmet style cooking on outdoor camping trips.


The reality of cooking outdoors should be to make the most food with the least equipment. However, using the camp kitchen checklist below will allow you to make almost anything you desire.

It is an addition to the Basic Camping Checklist.

Block ice will last much longer than bagged ice cubes and is less messy. You can fill and freeze water in milk containers (3/4) full to make block ice.
