Finding a “camping site near me” doesn’t stop with the variety of lodging for every camper’s style at North Texas Jellystone Park™. Camp food is half the fun too! Whether you are cooking over a campfire, using a grill in our RV park or whipping up snacks in your private kitchen in one of our cabins, there are a few things to keep in mind. Let’s go over what food to bring, and why these items are the best choices.
Food is delicious, and animals think so too. No matter where you camp, be it at North Texas Jellystone Park™ or out in the backwoods of the state, always bring food that can be securely stored in a sealed cooler or RV fridge. Don’t bring large cuts of meat that are left outside or anything too big to store in a way that masks the scent. The last thing you need is a furry guest that eats your food.
Be mindful of quick-to-spoil items
Condiments like mayo and sour cream are delicious, but quick to spoil in the hot sun. Ensure you have an adequate cooler or fridge on site (RV, cabin rental) to keep these goods fresh, no matter the weather. Also, consider trading in the fresh counterparts for shelf-stable options. For example, instead of bringing cream for your coffee on an extended camping trip, opt for powdered coffee creamer.
Vacation is the time to cut loose a little bit and enjoy some snacks but that doesn’t mean you need to give up your healthy eating plan. Things like bananas, oranges, potatoes and mushrooms are easy to pack and store to enhance your meals. Pack some produce along with those snacks for a healthy, energy boost.
Traditional camp food
Ah the old favorites! Smores, baked beans, and wieners grilled over the fire. Chili simmered in a cast iron pot – there is a very good reason these meals come to mind when you think of a “camping site near me.” These meals are hearty, easy to make over a fire, use easily portable and stored ingredients, and tend to be family favorites.
