It’s nearly camping season and that means that campfire recipes are a must. These 20 Easy Campfire Recipes will help you plan out your camping menu.
We go camping nearly every single year, especially dinner the summer months. My friend and I are typically in charge of the menu. I’ll admit too it can get challenging when you are planning for a large amount of people; however, there are a lot of options! Camping food can actually be more fun to plan than regular dinner, especially when you have all these easy campfire recipes to choose from.

When we go camping, we try to mix some simple, ready to eat meals with homemade campfire recipes too. We also try to keep them all kid-friendly; however, when in doubt, kids will always eat hot dogs. Right? Many times, we will go out for the day on our boat, and then stop and setup camp for the day.
We have had a wide array of foods just on a random beach in the middle of the lake. It’s actually kind of funny at times too, but it’s a nice break from the rest of the world. We have grilled up amazing steaks on a random beach at the lake with a make shift fire, plus we enjoyed all sorts of tasty side items too. I think over the years, it’s like we have a system down.
We dock the boats, the kids start playing and swimming, and immediately our tables are put up and we have food going. It’s just so relaxing, plus it’s pretty easy to clean up too!
We’ve even had comments from other lake goers before because we are just THAT prepared. I guess that is what happens when you’ve been doing it a while? We also rely on our good friend, he’s in the military, so maybe that makes him more prepared for everything? Any time we forget something, he always has it!
I’m anxious though to get out to the lake, we are really hoping and praying for good weather this weekend so that we may be able to go again. We finally were able to go out this past weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. The weather was perfect and it wasn’t SO HOT that I had to actually get in that gross water.
Yep, I’m a boat person…not a murky, brown lake water person. It has to get VERY hot before I will actually submerge myself in that water. Here in Oklahoma, we have lakes full of mud and brown and green water…not blue. One day, I’ll live near a lake with blue water or clear water…someday.
Now, it’s time to relax and enjoy time at the lake and by the campfire.
