Easy Campfire Foods For the Camping Newbie

Whether this is your first time camping, or you simply want to improve your cooking skills, knowing what to make with a campfire can be difficult. Here are some of the easiest campfire foods you can prepare with just a few ingredients and tools.

Corn on the Cob

When deciding what to cook over the fire, think of foods you would cook on at home on your grill, such as corn on the cob. This is a wonderful addition to any meal since the corn doesn’t need to be refrigerated and it cooks up quickly and easily. Heat up the campsite grill or fire ring, then place the corn on the cob directly on the grates. Keep the husks on the corn, since it helps it to keep it from sticking to the grill. Let them cook for a few minutes, flipping occasionally. Remove them, take off the husks, then add your butter and seasonings.


Prepare pancake mix before you leave for your camping trip, then pour it into an empty ketchup bottle. When you’re ready for breakfast, heat up a pan over the fire, add some crease, then squeeze out the pancake mix. Make them just like you would at home.

Pizza Log

For a unique option that is fun and easy to do while camping, you will need pizza dough, cheese, sauce, and toppings. Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape, add the sauce, cheese, and toppings, then roll the sides over to create a log. Pinch the sides so you don’t lose any sauce, and then wrap it in foil. Cook it over the grill or fire until the dough is cooked and the cheese is melted.

Stick Foods

Kabobs are the most campfire-friendly because they’re easy to cook and to eat.
