Apple Cider Stew
A camping recipe from Marvin. This can be a meal in itself. The beef can be pre-cooked at home. You should finish the stew over a bed of coals on the campfire.

Apple Crisp
A camping recipe from Sheryl. Highly adaptable recipe. Good for dessert as well as breakfast.

Apple Dumplings
A camping recipe from Toni.

Beans o' Fire
A camping recipe from Rodney Jordan. The ingredients in this recipe may be varied somewhat. The flavor comes primarily from the sausage.

Biscuit Stew
A camping recipe from Jerry. This is super easy to make and really sticks to your ribs. Because of the size of an RV oven, you can't make much more than this at one time. Use a rack setting as far away from the heat source as possible to prevent burning the bottom of the biscuits.

Bryan's Dutch Oven Stew
A camping recipe from Bryan. A hearty one-pot meal. If you like dumplings, you can add a can of bicuits to the top and let cook for 15 minutes longer.

Cajun Yellow Rice
A camping recipe from Robert Partigianoni. You will find that this simple breakfast meal will become the all time favorite. Very few breakfast dishes will have the flavor of this meal. This is a meal within itself, or it can be served using smaller portions as a side dish to any meal that you would serve rice.

Camp Beef Stew
A camping recipe from Randy. Prepare at least a day before camping. While camping, your prep work is done and the stew can cook for 2-3 hours while you do other things!

Camper's Paprikash
A camping recipe from Jeanine. This dish tastes great, especially in the spring and fall or when having any late summer suppers. It's warm, sweet and spicy, but not too peppery for the kids.

Campfire Chicken
A camping recipe from Bob. I tried this by accident one night during a Scout campout, and everyone loved it.

Campfire Stew
A camping recipe from Terri. I learned to make this in scouting when I was only 8 years old. Now my four children nearly demand I make it at least once a month at home.

Carrot Cake
A camping recipe from Kay Reynolds. Watch out for the cake sheriff. This recipe is a great company pleaser. Best when cooked in a Dutch oven. I call this my Cherokee Ridge Pioneer Carrot Cake.

A camping recipe from David. I make this in a Dutch oven, and I serve it with root vegetables.

Cherry Chocolate Cake
A camping recipe from StrGazr. I am a Tiger Cub Leader for cub scouts, and I learned this at our recent pow-wow in a class about campsite cooking.

Cherry Upside Down Cake
A camping recipe from Neilzp. This is an elegant dessert that will delight any age of campers. Even young children can help make this, all but the turning the cake over when done. If really camping out in the rough, this is a tummy pleaser and eye opener.

Chicken and Dumplings
A camping recipe from David. This is an easy one pot meal.

Chicken Creole
A camping recipe from David. This quick recipe can be prepared on a two-burner camp stove with a big skillet and a 2-quart pot with a lid, or you can prepare everything in a 12-inch Dutch oven.

Chicken Dumplings
A camping recipe from Randy Simpson. This recipe is mistake resistant, and it provides a balanced meal. You can get fancy by adding thyme or white pepper to the dough mixture for seasoned dumplings.

Chicken Pot Pie
A camping recipe from Dan. This is an easy Dutch oven recipe.

Chicken Stew
A camping recipe from Ron. This is an easy Dutch oven stew.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
A camping recipe from Danica. These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. I think the reason why they are so good is the smaller air space in the Dutch oven keeps them moist throughout the cooking. They taste amazing while they are still warm and great even after a few days.

Cinnamon Pull-a-Part
A camping recipe from Ralph. I am scoutmaster and the scouts expect me to make this every time we go camping. I think this is why they come.

Cobbler, The Real Thing
A camping recipe from Chunkydog32@aol.com. This is an incredibly easy dessert to make and is sure to make you the hero of the camping trip. Amateur dump-cake makers need not apply.

Corn Bread
A camping recipe from David. This is an easy corn bread recipe that you can make right at the campground in your Dutch oven.

Cuban Pork
A camping recipe from Tere. This is a true Taino Indian recipe from Cuba, which belonged to my grandmother.

Dad's Biscuits
A camping recipe from J.T. Premixed, it doesn't require refrigeration and can be carried in a backpack. I have used this recipe at home and in camp for about 40 years now and it always pays off with compliments and requests for more.

Deb's Chicken and Dumplings
A camping recipe from Debbie Manelli. The dumplings make the gravy creamy and rich, and the leftovers, if there are any, are great for lunch the next day.

Deep Fried Chicken
A camping recipe from Sue. This recipe is a nice change for a meal and kids like it.

Dublin Coddle
A camping recipe from Phil B. This traditional Dublin Saturday night dish was usually served when the men came home from the pub and maybe with a bottle of stout brought home for her.
