The Best Thanksgiving Camping Ideas For A Family-Friendly Celebration

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be a lot of work, but it’s worth it when you get to enjoy a delicious meal in the great outdoors! Here are some tips to make your Thanksgiving camping trip a success: 

Plan ahead is a helpful tip and make sure you have all the supplies you need for your trip.

Before you embark on any trip there is always some prep work.It is essential that you plan ahead and it’s always a good idea to make sure you have all the supplies you need. This will help you avoid any unnecessary delays or complications along the way.

So what exactly do you need to plan for and bring with you on your trip? Here is a quick checklist of things to consider:

  • mode of transportation
  • food and water
  • shelter
  • clothes and footwear
  • first aid kit
  • map and compass
  • tools and supplies
  • money
  • delicious food
  • holiday meal
  • enough wood for a campfire

Of course, the specific items you will need will vary depending on your destination, the length of your trip, and the activities you have planned. Are you going to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner, or maybe you will just cook a traditional turkey or Thanksgiving dessert or maybe nothing at all.

I know my family loves being a little untraditional and grill hotdogs. We started this new tradition when they were little and now as big kids they still love it! Hot dogs make for a unique experience. We bring our own propane grill or use the charcoal grill that is provided at most campsites.

Another tip: Grab a boneless turkey breast before you leave on your trip at your local grocery store. We like Archer Farms from Target. It’s a fun way to keep it a traditional meal without all of the cook time.

If you take the time to plan ahead and make sure you have everything you need, your trip will be sure to go off without a hitch…

Make sure to give yourself enough time to thaw the turkey, prepare the side dishes, and make any desserts you might want to serve.
