Great Camping Recipes

For many campers cooking at the campsite is a major highlight of the canoe camping adventure, and mountain pies are an old time favorite for both kids and adults.

And for the adults, after the kids crawl into their sleeping bags you might enjoy a slightly chilled smoke beer with cheese fondue. Check out our camp recipes page for some good suggestions on mountain pies, camp fondue and more.
