500 Free Camping & Dutch Oven recipes perfect for your own campouts or for Boy Scout or Girl Scout campouts! FREE DOWNLOAD and more information!
If you’re like me, trying to come up with ideas for camping food can be daunting if you want to move past hamburgers, hot dogs and pop tarts for your campsite. If you’re beginning to live a more preparedness lifestyle, you’re probably looking to expand on your alternative cooking techniques and ideas for grid-down situations. These could be days without power after a local or natural disaster or even something more long-term.
There is also a bonus rocket stove section to learn to make your own rocket stove to have in the wilderness (or even in your own backyard!). We absolutely love our Premier Rocket Stove – read the review here, which includes instructions on making your own.
Supplies you might need for these camping recipes:
- Cast iron dutch oven
- Cast iron skillet
- Heavy Duty Gloves
- Cast Iron Lid Lifter
- Campfire tripod
- S’more sticks (though we know you can just use a branch)
Thanks to the Boy Scouts!
These camping recipes were put together by Troop 26 Parkville (who gave their permission for me to share this download with you). These folks worked hard at putting together a great resource! Thanks!!! This would be an awesome thing to print out for your emergency binders and camping files. Enjoy and happy camping!
Don’t miss all the great camping information on using dutch ovens, utensil-less cooking and a complete dutch oven cookbook (the Geezer Cookbook). All available in the first link.

I love helping people feel more at ease about their preparedness. Preparedness doesn’t have to overwhelming, scary, or about an upcoming doomsday. Simple everyday preparations can put your mind at ease and help you out in a sticky situation.
