21 Recipes That Make Camping Feel Like Glamping


After breathing in sharp intakes of fresh air, clambering up rocks, jumping over bubbling streams (or taking a quick dip in them), and covering miles of ground, the simplest meal can often taste like it’s worthy of a Michelin star. That’s part of the magic of camping in the great outdoors!

However, for those who find your average roasted s’mores or hot dogs are just that—average—then maybe it’s time to take in-camp dining to the next level. The following are recipes you can completely make ahead at home, prep before you go and then cook over an open fire, or put together from start to finish all al fresco.
