When it comes to campfire meals, you can prepare them over the open fire or on a portable gas grill — or both! The key to successful campsite cooking is planning ahead. Sit down and schedule out each meal before you go so you can shop and pack.

Foil packet meals make fast and easy options; prepare them in advance and pack in your cooler before leaving home. Do as much food prep as possible before heading out (dicing onions, boiling pasta, etc.). Here are some tasty, easy, kid-friendly ideas:
