Have you booked a camping trip for this summer yet? Well you should! Camping is an amazing way to get outside, try some activities you’ve never tried before, fill your lungs with fresh crisp air, and bond with friends. Better yet, invite a large group of friends to go camping and book a big group camping site for a mini-retreat. If you’re wondering what to make for breakfast, lunch and dinner, camping meals can be just as creative as your home meals! We’ve compiled a list of delicious, filling campfire meals that will please any crowd of friends, and ensure that you won’t be eating hot dogs and s’mores for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

1. Pizza

This is basically going to be the best pizza you are ever going to make. When you light that fire, slice those toppings and watch it bake, the pizza just tastes so much better! Make a few different pizzas with different toppings to keep it interesting.

 

2. Nachos

Fill up your iron skillet with your favorite nacho chips and pile on those toppings – nachos and a beer is an amazing way to end a busy day outdoors.
