20 Foil-Wrapped Camping Recipes

Camping trips are always an unforgettable experience. Trooping along in the wilds and being one with nature, it always invokes a different type of excitement; an adrenaline rush that can’t be described. The memories you make along the way and the friendships forged in these fleeting moments make up for experiences you’ll cherish all your life. On that note though, another important aspect which is often overlooked but that definitely further enhances a camping experience is the type of food you eat. Somehow, food always tastes so much better in the wild, maybe that has something to do with the fact that you toil tirelessly for hours on end during a camping excursion.

Camping recipes come in handy when you don’t have a network to dig up conventional recipes online. Keeping yourself nourished throughout the day is extremely important even if you are camping.
