9 delicious recipes for your next camping trip

However much we treasure our stovetops and ovens, everything tastes better over a campfire

It's no secret that we love our kitchens. We've happily given our hearts to stand mixers, to tenderizers, to those dearly beloved tools we can't live without. But this summer, we're leaving it all behind. It's not you, kitchen — it's us. Because however much we treasure our stovetops and ovens, everything tastes better over a campfire.

The minute spring came, you were already eating al fresco. You were the master of cookouts and picnics in the park. But camping is another adventure entirely. It's about you, a fire, and a cast-iron skillet — and if you ask us, that's the best kind of challenge. Whether you're a proud glamper or a hardy outdoorsperson, we rounded up the essential recipes for your next trip into the wild. These are recipes to tell stories by, to laugh by, to savor long after the last embers have gone out. Whip up a batch of trail mix and pack your bags — summer is calling.
