Camping Food Ideas

The crisp mountain air, the sound of the stream trickling through the meadow, the comforting crackle and gentle heat of the fire...and the enormously obnoxious task of fixing dinner after a long day of outdoor adventuring.

Ahhhhhh camping.

But seriously, is there anything worse than having to come up with food ideas for camping that are going to taste good, be remotely healthy, and are easy to prepare while smack dab in the middle of nowhere?

Well, we would agree that there is nothing worse, but we know a little secret—Hibernate is about to solve all your camping food quandaries and give you some of the best food ideas for camping ever.

Best Food Ideas For Camping

Honestly, the best food ideas for camping are those that take the headache out of the process entirely. And you probably think that’s not easy to come by based on everything you’ve tried in the past! Truthfully, if I could count the number of times I’ve tried a “brilliant” Pinterest camping hack and failed...well, I wouldn’t because I don’t want to relive that many tragedies.

But with Hibernate, things—particularly your camping meals—are different. But how? 

With Hibernate Food, Camping Meals Are Simple

Hibernate simplifies the pain of planning and preparing easy, healthy meals for your camping trip. First, how long will you be camping and how many people will be there? Multiply your two numbers together, and you’re essentially set! Now just grab yourself a two-week supply of emergency food from Hibernate, everyone can pick the meals they enjoy, and you’re good to go! You can even bring the whole bucket since it’s portable and lightweight anyway—no dealing with heavy coolers full of extra hassles (ice, saran wrap, tin foil, can openers, heavy skillets, etc.)—and you’re done!

And now that your 7-second food-ideas-for-camping planning session is done, you can focus on the food prep. That is, bring something to boil water in and utensils to eat with. That’s it. With Hibernate freeze-dried meals, you automatically have the easiest food for camping ever. Just simmer in hot water and you’re done. You’ve got a variety of nutritious, delicious camping meals everyone can enjoy in just a few minutes. Seriously, s’mores take more effort than this!

With Hibernate Food, Camping Meals Are Nutritious 

Hey, we promise we’re not knocking a classic s’mores smorgasbord. But every so often you crave healthy food ideas for camping that are really going to fuel the hiking, fishing, rock climbing, or hunting you’re actually there for. And Hibernate has you covered there as well.


Each of Hibernate’s meal pouches is packed with plant-based protein and diverse nutrients that will at least help to offset your mallow intake over the course of the camping trip. There are no random fillers and the number of calories per serving is clearly labeled on each pouch so you can create complete, delicious meals for each individual member of your party! You can even supplement your two-week supply meals with some additional fruits and vegetables from Hibernate for even more nutrition and an extra dose of YUM.



With Hibernate Food, Camping Meals Are Delicious

We believe that food ideas for camping should actually taste good, not just be tolerable. And Hibernate uses high-quality ingredients that taste as good as the day they were packaged and—wait for it—honestly taste like the thing they’re labeled as. Really, when we say you’re getting Italian lasagna, you’re going to get Italian lasagna! While you’re camping! I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true. And in the Hibernate 2-week food supply bucket, you’ll have that and so many more food ideas for camping to choose from, like:

Hibernate Takes The Hassle Out Of Camping Food Prep

Listen, at the end of a long day in the mountains, all you want to do is enjoy that peaceful reward of hanging out with Mother Nature. No one wants to rig up a complex DIY smoker for the ribeye you packed in and have been trying to keep from the bears for the last three nights.


On the flip side, Hibernate food storage makes for the best food ideas for camping because it’s easy to plan for, easy to pack, easy to prepare, and easy for everyone to love. It means more time for family, more time for fun, and more time enjoying what you came to the mountains to enjoy—all with less stress along the way.
