Steps to Perfecting the Cooking Aspect of Camping

Whether it is the smell of freshly baked pancakes in the morning or the delight of roasting marshmallows over a campfire at night, camp cooking is probably one of the most enjoyable things to do while away in nature. If you are camping in an RV, you are lucky because you have the chance to equip your vehicle with all the needed tools for making whatever you and your family want to eat. A stove and a sink are pretty much the basic kitchen essentials that almost every RV is equipped with, but for the ultimate experience, you will certainly need much more than that.


Here is what you will need to be able to cook everyday dishes and even try out some new recipes while on the road.

Cast Iron Skillet

A quality cast iron skillet is one of the most important cooking accessories for camping to bring with you while on the road. It is durable, easy to clean and you can cook in it basically anything you want. You can even put it right on the coals if you decide to take advantage of the campfire to cook a delicious beef steak.

Food Storage Containers

You can never have too much storage space. Plus, when you’re on the road, you can never know how much of it you will actually need. Choose food storage containers made from silicone that come with clip on the lids to avoid spills. When shopping for these cooking accessories for camping, make sure they are made from BPA free materials to ensure the health and safety of your family.


Dish Drainer

Even if you use plastic utensils and paper plates, you will still have at least a few dishes that will need to be washed. In this case, you will also need a dish drainer to put your clean dishes to dry. There are many dish drainer solutions available on the market designed to fit most RV sinks and they are just the right size for limited counter space.

Sharp Knife

If you are planning on catching fish for dinner, a filet knife is a must have tool to take with you. Otherwise, consider getting a knife that has a handy protective case to help ensure no one will get hurt. You might get surprised how a good knife can be useful for various purposes other than cooking.


There should be at least one mug for every person that is traveling on the caravan. A mug is a versatile kitchen utensil that can serve different purposes – from drinking coffee, to eating beans and drinking your egg whites in the morning – a good mug will work for basically everything.


While on the road, you will certainly want to have something to easily prepare your coffee. Well, a percolator is the savior in this case. You can also use this versatile tool it to prepare tea and soups as well.
