The New Camp Cookbook.

The New Camp Cookbook.

Good food makes for great camping! And if you’re one to love the idea of living adventurously and eating well outside, you’ll want The New Camp Cookbook as your go-to guide for cooking like a pro in the great outdoors.

Named Amazon’s “Best Cookbook of the Month,” Indigo’s “Best Book of the Month,” and PureWow’s “Best Book of the Year,”The New Camp Cookbook has enthralled campers, road trippers, and adventurers since it was first released.

Where to buy

About the book.

The book takes you beyond the standard campfire fare of hot dogs and canned beans into gourmet grub that your friends won’t believe you made in the wild. (Just don’t tell them how easy it actually was, even with your limited arsenal of kitchen tools.)

It covers all that goes into preparing for a car camping or RV camping trip, from stocking a non-perishable pantry to packing a cooler the right away. It features a variety of recipes for cooking on a camp stove, cast-iron pan, Dutch oven, foil packs, and grill, as well as tips for putting together a satisfying meal when you’re on the go or pulling in late to camp.

If you’re dreaming of all the places you’ll go this summer (or fall, or any time of year), make sure to pack a copy of The New Camp Cookbook and be the envy of other campers.

More about The New Camp Cookbook:

Hands down the best book I’ve read on outdoor cooking!!

Good all around techniques and great recipes to take your camping experience to the next level. We have been camping and cooking for over 15 years and mainly have done the basics plus some experimenting with Dutch oven. This book made us rethink how to make great food even while camping. Easy to follow and contains lists of what ingredients to pack and what supplies to collect and bring for what you want to do. Contains recipes for breakfast, lunch, supper as well as snacks!
