Heading away for a camping trip is an exciting time! The prospect of feeling at one with nature, soaking in the wonderful outdoors and generally having time to catch your breath, is certainly a wonderful way to spend a few days, or weeks!
That being said, preparing and packing for a camping trip can take a considerable amount more time and effort than preparing to head away to an all inclusive hotel! Rather than rely on someone else to cook for you and the family, you tend to need to bring all of he family’s catering needs with you in the back of the car!
So what do you need to pack to make sure that the kids, as well as you and your significant other, don’t go hungry during your camping trip away? Here comes your ultimate checklist to campsite cooking!
