There’s only one word for describing camping: MEMORIES.
Ah, memories. Both good and bad. Memories of setting up the campsite and trying to evenly spear the hotdog so it wouldn’t fall in the campfire. Remember all the stories and countless amounts of roasted marshmallows? What great times.
Whether it’s good ol’ tent camping or RV’ing you prefer, a camping trip isn’t a camping trip without a campfire. And with a campfire comes a number of clever (and super tasty) food options.
If you’re ready to try something new besides the traditional hotdog and s’mores recipes, here are a few suggestions that will make you want to pack your bags and head to the woods ASAP.

I love this Campfire Cone recipe because it’s a fun twist on a classic camping treat! You can also mix up the variety of candy you add in with the marshmallows. My favorite add on: Reese’s! – Kathryn, Support
The familiar smell of baked potatoes reminds me of camping trips as a kid. We used to wrap potatoes in aluminum foil and burry them under the hot ash of the campfire, then it was served with a pinch of salt and some butter. Yum, yum, yum! – Kaya, Graphic Design
Substituting crescent rolls for hotdog buns is the best way to enjoy a hotdog, no doubt. – Jordan, Marketing
I LOVE Bailey’s and I love roasting marshmallows, so this is a perfect combination. They taste great in coffee, too. – Natalie, Marketing
