Here are some tips and tricks for cooking outdoors while luxury camping. We challenge you to “go gourmet” with your version of comfort foods!

Food & Drink

Menu plan ahead of time! Have fun looking up food options for your getaway. Check out this awesome Printable Camping Menu and Grocery List from Glamper Life. We totally love the creative ways you can grill. Some of our favorites are pizza, stuff-with-any-type-of-food-wraps, and easy foil-wrapped foods. Read POV Resort’s monthly newsletters for recipe tips (also posted on our Facebook page). Pack snacks to graze on when you rev up your appetites from all the fun too. Do some easy food and beverage pairings that highlight local fare and libations. 

Light the Grill

Remember to take matches and a lighter with you! Cooking spray always helps.

Keeping Cool(er)

Bring a good cooler when glamping. They make pretty affordable coolers that keep food very cold 3-5 days. Make a plan to refresh your ice (on or off site from campgrounds). Pack your cooler with pre-portioned food (pre-cut is awesome)! Put items you’re cooking with first on top so you won’t have to dig around. Pack to eat most perishable items first. Consider bringing a second cooler for beverages.

Pots & Pans

Bring cooking vessels and ways to clean them. Disposable foil pans and foil are a great recyclable way you can cook but not have to worry about cleanup. KISS method (keep it simple, stupid)!


Bring any tongs/spatulas, silverware, plates, cups, etc. that you’ll need to eat and do food prep. They make great disposable and recyclable options these days!
