Plan your next vacation with my book

Printable Camping Meal Planner Template

Our family just returned from a weekend away staying at a county park in a camping trailer. One of the things we loved most from our weekend was the delicious meals we shared together. Creating a camping meal plan in advance meant we had some great meals.

We really enjoyed branching beyond the traditional camping fare since we had access to a fridge, freezer, and kitchen. I decided to create a cute camping meal planning template for my readers to be able to use on their next camping vacation.

Whether you’re camping in a tent, trailer, or renting an RV, this printable will help you organize your meals and be sure that worrying about food isn’t a part of your outdoor vacation!

How to use this camping menu printable:

  • In the header at the top note how many breakfasts, lunches, and dinners you’ll be eating.
  • Write down what meal you want to make for each day you’re camping in the Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 boxes.
  • At the bottom note your snacks & drinks, desserts, and any condiments/spices you’ll need.
  • Make a shopping list for items not found in your home.
  • Gather and pack up all the food you’ll need from home and from your grocery shop.

Then enjoy your family time and the yummy meals! Use my campfire conversation starters if you’d like some fun topics to talk about during dinner or dessert.

We loved having supplies for s’mores and campfire popcorn each evening, but we did forget butter for our corn on the cob one night (thankfully the corn was delicious on its own!) Having nothing planned but fixing dinner and hanging out was such a wonderful bit of family time.

Do you love to go camping? What kind of camper are you? Do you love KOA campgrounds, prefer wilderness, or perhaps you’re more into glamping, which is definitely my cup of tea!

  1. Love this. We are campers so this will come in handy. We just did a couple of posts on camping as well if you would like to check them out.

    • Great Deborah! Glad you liked the menu plan and hope it comes in handy for your next camping vacation!

    • I am a avid camper also.
      I would love to hear from others on there camping ideas.
      I love to cook on the open fire. Watch the fireflies & hear the sounds of the woods. I would live in my camper if I could. But my life is just not ready for that yet. Happy Camping.

  2. G’day from Oz. Thanks for sharing your printable with us. It sounds like you ate an amazing variety of things when you camped!

    If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could share your post at my weekly Say G’Day Saturday linky party. It has just started and this would be a fabulous addition.

    Best wishes for a great weekend.

  3. Our family has been camping for over 25 years. We started out in a tent, graduated to a pop-up and now have a 30′ travel trailer. We have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren and next week we will all be together camping in our beautiful North Carolina mountains. (Heaven on earth for this MaMa and Grammy!) I was asked recently by a young mother to share our family’s secret for being so close as a family. I told her that I felt our many years of camping together has a lot to do with it. Our 24 year old daughter jokingly said, “you have no choice but to be close when you have 5 people in 1 small camper!” Our married daughter and her husband have started making their own sweet memories of camping with their precious little ones.
    However, no matter how many years of camping experience one has, there is always much to learn! Thank you for a great website. Enjoy those little ones, they grow up fast!

  4. As camping season approaches, my OCD is going into hyper-drive with cleaning the camper and getting things organized! I came across this and the angels sang! lol! I will have to share this with my campground friends as we are all moms to large family’s, and when you have a bunch of kiddos you need to be organized!

    • Haha – love it Erika! Thank you for commenting and helping me see there are fellow organization / planner junkies. :) I really appreciate it and wish you a fun and happy camping season!
