Meal Prep Tips for Your Next Camping Trip

Campfire CookingGetting ready to pack up the car for your next camping trip? If you haven’t been on a camping trip in a while, you may be concerned about the logistics of cooking meals at a campsite. The good news is, there are a few simple steps you can take to make cooking much easier while camping. Check out a few of our favorite meal prep tips below!

Come up with a full list of meals you’re going to cook while camping.

Regardless of whether you’re going camping for one night or an entire week, it’s a good idea to sit down and make a list of what you’re going to eat for each and every meal. This way, you’ll know exactly what ingredients you’ll need to pack before you head to the grocery store.

Cook what you can ahead of time.

Cooking at a campsite tends to be a little more challenging than cooking at home. Therefore, you should cook whatever you can at home before you leave. The idea of sitting around a campfire cooking chicken might sound appealing, but in reality, it can be a slow and tedious process. Consider cooking things like chicken at home and then reheating them when you’re ready to eat. You can also cut up vegetables, fruits and more at home so that they’ll be ready to cook when you arrive at your campsite.

Try not to rely on your campfire to make every meal.

There may be times when you’re camping that you just don’t feel like cooking. You want to throw something together that’s quick and easy, like a sandwich. Bring along meals that are simple to make for when you don’t feel like getting a fire going. You’ll be glad you did when you’re exhausted after a day full of hiking, fishing and exploring the great outdoors.

Money-Saving Tips for your Next RV Camping Adventure

Gas PricesTaking a camping trip in an RV can be a great experience, but it can also put a dent in your bank account if you aren’t careful. From gas and food to highway tolls, there are many expenses that will crop up along your adventure. Fortunately, with a little preparation, you can have a wonderful trip without breaking your budget.

Consider your destination.

Where are you going on your next RV trip? Your options are virtually limitless, but some destinations will be more expensive than others. If you’re on a tight budget, consider making a list of potential destinations and then narrowing it down based on their fees and expenses. At Suwannee River Rendezvous, you can find affordable RV camping rates all year ‘round.

Shop around for the best gas prices.

In 2018, it’s easier than ever to track local gas prices. Smartphone apps like Waze and GasBuddy are designed to help drivers find the lowest gas prices in a given area. Rather than stopping at the first gas station you see, you can often hold out for a better deal down the road.

Eat in whenever you can.

If your RV has a kitchen in it, use it. It can be tempting to pull over at a rest stop for a bite to eat, but that will cost you more money in the long run. It will also promote unhealthy eating habits. You’re much better off preparing meals in your mobile kitchen instead.
