5 Camping Meal Ideas for a Large Group

Chicken on the Bone

Chicken is always a crowd pleaser—when choosing the cut, go for drumsticks and chicken wings. The bone makes this meal easy for almost anyone to eat and you can fit a lot of wings or drumsticks on one fire grate.  

To prep at the campsite, dip the meat in marinade and put it directly on the grate. If the drumsticks are large, you may need to cover them to make sure they cook all the way through.

Dutch Oven Pot Roast

Pot roast is another dinner other campers can contribute to. If you bring the pot roast, the others can bring potatoes, veggies and broth.

The beauty of a Dutch oven is the minimal cooking effort needed. After placing it into the fire, with coals on the lid, sit back and wait. However, this method is time consuming: the pot roast should cook for 25 minutes on one side, 25 minutes on the other side, and then 45 minutes with the potatoes and veggies added in.

Regardless of what you choose to cook, preparing meals for a large group of campers doesn't have to be stressful. Take these camping meal ideas on your next trip, and make everyone happy, yourself included.
