THE BEST CAMPING COOKING GEAR FOR EVERY TYPE OF CAMPER

Camp food is traditionally simple: think hot dogs and beans over a fire. But the reality is, much of what you cook at home can be cooked at the campground. There’s just one catch—you need to have the right camping cooking gear.

Making mouthwatering camping meals is so much easier when you have good cooking gear. But with so much gear to choose from, what do you really need for your camping trips?

Every camper that’s planning on cooking needs to have a few staple items in their camping kitchen arsenal. First up? A camping stove or a campfire. You’ll also need something to cook in, something to serve with, and something on which to place your delicious camping grub…and finally, something to eat that grub with.

Camping cooking gear differs depending on the type of camping you’re doing; a car camper might bring different items than a backpacker or RV camper. These basic items will get you started, no matter what kind of camping you’re doing.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
