Your next camping trip better be in the works, because these delicious camping snacks are too good to miss.

When you go camping, you often think about the big meals, but what about everything in between? Or, if you’re like me, “everything in between” accounts for all my meals. I’m a snacker. And I definitely eat enough to sustain my entire day.

Having plenty of snacks while camping is usually a good idea. This is for many reasons, some being just in case you run into some trouble, you’ll have enough for some extra nights, or maybe you’ll meet new friends and want to share. If you’re car camping, this is exceptionally simple. Just keep it away from bears or other local critters.

Everything you see is easily made on-site, with your generic cast iron pans, dutch ovens, skewers, etc.
