How to Cook Vacation-Style

Cooking while on your getaway is a ton of fun! We provide a gas grill for you to conjure up your culinary glamping delights. Here are some tips and tricks for cooking outdoors while on vacation.

    • FOOD | Have fun looking up food options for your getaway – we endorse grilling and totally love the creative ways you can make grilled food – avoid the mess inside! Pizza, a plethora of food-genres of wraps/burritos, and fun foil-packed foods are just some of our favs. Read our monthly newsletters for recipe tips (also posted on our Facebook POV page). 
    • LIGHT THE GRILL | Remember to take matches and a lighter with you! 
    • KEEPING COOL | Bring a good cooler. For campers, put items you’re cooking with first on top so you won’t have to dig around. Consider bringing a second cooler for beverages.
    • POTS AND PANS | We recommending using disposable foil pans and foil – they’re a great, recyclable way you can cook but not have to worry about cleanup. KISS method (keep it simple, stupid)! Cabin guests – pots and pans are provided.
    • UTENSILS | For glamping guests, bring tongs/spatulas, silverware, plates, cups, etc. you’ll need to eat and do food prep. They make great disposable and recyclable options these days! Cabin guests – utensils are provided.
