The Hungry Camp Cooks

Easy camping and outdoor recipe ideas…

Hi, we are the hungry camp cooks!

We are a Father and Son pair that like to get out to bike, hike, kayak, sail, and camp so we’re often hungry. The recipes on this website should be easy to cook on a camping stove or even an open fire. Many meals can be prepared in advance.

We like to keep things simple so you should be able to find all the ingredients in Walmart, Costco, Loblaws (we’re in Canada), or your local supermarket. Enjoy.
