A big component of any camping trip is what food you choose to bring. You don’t want to bring anything too labor intensive (no one wants to spend an hour after dinner cleaning dishes), but you also want to bring good food that the whole family will enjoy and will make the trip that much better. These recipes are a combination of both – taste great and are super easy! Take a look and begin planning your meals!

1. Tacos in a Bag

Super portable and an easy clean-up, walking tacos are perfect for any camping trip.

2. No-Mess Omeletes in a Bag
