Camping is one of those experiences where you can always learn something new. Great Camping Recipes provides readers ideas on easy camping meals and how to pack food without the possibility of cross contamination.

Great Camping Recipes contains information and tips to make your camping experience great.

Take foods that are easy to prepare and pack. The common foods advised for camping are prepared meats, protein bars, dried fruits, cheese sticks, and marshmallows, according to a news release.

Always take ample drinking water with you. It’s also a good idea to pack powdered milk and a variety of drink mixes that are ready to drink or easy to prepare.

Cooking essentials like butter and oil are also advised for both hot and cold meals.

Also, be sure to pack your favorite seasonings and spices.

If cooking is not your strong suit and you want to keep camping simple, find a local military surplus store and look for MRE’s. Meals Ready to Eat includes freeze dried foods that usually require water only for preparation.

Cross contamination is not an issue that only affects people that cook at home. When cooking outdoors, you must use a different cutting board to cut meat than you do to cut other foods.

The usual camping foods such as hot dogs and hamburgers can get boring. Try to mix up what you eat. Look through your cookbooks to find easy recipes that are conducive to outdoor preparation.

Ensuring a great camping experience is not that difficult, but you do need to take certain steps and make sure you remember the essentials.

Make a check list of the things you need for your camping trip and check each item off once you pack it. Then, make sure you bring each bag to the car. The last thing any camper wants is to reach the destination and find out they forgot something important, like matches or the food.

Make sure that you always carry a survival kit with you, especially when you wonder away from your campsite. This kit should include water filters, a knife, compass, other first-aid tools like bandages and cold packs. This will help ensure you are properly prepared to handle the wild.

Let the tips in this article help you keep important things in mind, so that you can have an enjoyable camping experience. Keep learning about camping so you can create a memorable experience every time.

The website also offers recipes for Pita Bread Pizza, Cast Iron German Potato Salad, Campfire Stew, Ziplock Omelets, and Foil Packet Dinner. Such meals are prepared with basic ingredients and can be cooked in grills and packed in plastic containers, says the release.
