There are two types of people in this world. Those who camp during the summer and those who camp during the fall. Some like the heat because it gives them the option to cool off in the river, or lake they might be camping by. Others choose the fall because they can bundle up by the fire and there are fewer bugs ( I am this type.) My whole life it seems like bugs have been out to get me. Sometimes I’ll have dreams about… wait, never mind. No matter when you like to camp there is one thing we all have in common. Food! Everyone has to eat and camping food is THE BEST. Here we give you five of our favorite camping foods to make on your family outing!

Good Ol' Fashioned Wieners
You drive to your favorite camping spot, set up your tent and make a fire. You have a package of all-beef franks calling your name. You could have brought a pan to boil franks in, possibly an iron rod to roast them on? Hm… not so much, you drove out to your spot to live among the wilderness! You take to the wood to find a perfect roasting stick, once acquired you pull out the trusty pocket knife you’ve had since first grade( we all have one). You then start to whittle the stick to a perfect point. When the supreme point is achieved the next step is to roast the ol' dog. Along with great concentration and patience, you finally reach the optimal roast.
Congrats, you just made the best hot dog you have ever tasted (cries tears of joy).
