Choose the Right Food for Camping

What food should you take on a camping trip?

When you go camping for a long time, you should be very careful with the food you carry and its handling.

  • Food will be better preserved in the winter than summer because of the temperature.
  • If camping in a regulated place, you will have all the comforts, such as access to electricity, refrigeration, and close access to grocery stores.No bake superfood chewy granola bars packed full of seeds nuts dried fruit and dark chocolate 300x300 - Choose the Right Food for Camping
  • Everything is complicated if you opt for a slightly less conventional type of camping, like free camping or a multi-day mountain expedition with overnight stays in tents.
  • If camping for only one night, it is easier to keep food hot or cold.
  • If camping for more than one day, it is necessary to plan the type of food to be taken, the maintenance, how to cook it, and the utensils needed.
  • Choose foods based on their maintenance, especially concerning the temperature.
  • Weight should also be taken into account if it is excessive and requires difficult transport.
  • Food must meet the nutritional needs and give energy for daily activities and camping adventures.

Food Examples

1) Rice and dry pasta: very appropriate for energy and combining with many types of canned food.

2) Canned foods: legumes, vegetables, fish in oil, corned beef. They are long-lasting but weigh a lot, and once opened should be consumed. They do not need refrigeration.

3) Dehydrated foods: soups and powdered milk.

4) Nuts and chocolate: store in airtight plastic containers or bags.
