Camping Meal Plan Grocery List
This is everything you need for this meal plan, down to the spices.
These are the recipes not already included (hyperlinked) above.
Fish and Vegetables
4-6 fish filets (or 2-3 whole, cleaned fish)
2 Green Peppers, sliced
8 oz sliced mushrooms
2 Zucchini, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
Salt & pepper
At home or at the campsite: Season fish with salt, pepper, and dried dill to taste. Place sliced vegetables onto the foil sheet, followed up the lemon slices. Place the fish on top and top with 2-3 pats of butter. Wrap the foil in a flat pack. Freeze if making at home.
At the campsite: Place foil packets on a metal grate over medium heat on the campfire. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
2 cups sliced chicken breast, cooked
1/4 cup sliced onions
1/4 cup sliced bell peppers
2 cups Monterrey Jack Cheese
At home or at your campsite: In a skillet over medium heat, saute onions and peppers in butter. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and heat thru. Remove from pan. Refrigerate or freeze, if you are making at home.
At your campsite: Heat chicken and peppers if pre-made. Place tortilla chips in a skillet or a bowl made with aluminum foil. Place chicken, onions and peppers, and cheese over the chips. Place skillet or foil bowl over medium heat on a camp stove or campfire. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Carefully remove aluminum foil. You can serve out of the hot skillet or separate out onto 4 plats. Top with guacamole and salsa.
Prep Plan before you leave for camping trip
- Marinade pork chops in a ziploc bag and freeze in bag.
- Make coleslaw at home and store in a ziploc bag or lidded container.
- Cut up fruit for the fruit salad (breakfast day 2 and throughout the trip) and store in lidded containers.
- Assemble fish and vegetable foil dinner packets. Freeze.
- Precook chicken, onions, and peppers for nachos Day #3
Now you are ready for your 3 day camping trip with friends or family. This is everything you need for meals at the camp site. Store all of your frozen or refrigerated items in a cooler and your dry goods in a plastic container. As a family, we stick to improved campsites with drive up access, so we’ll leave the cooler and dry goods in the car to eliminate curious furry visitors.
