Nonperishable Food and Bottled Water


While you can buy filtration systems to purify water found in nature, families will find it easiest to bring gallons of bottled water for cooking, cleaning, and brushing their teeth, if the campground does not have running water.

Also bring plenty of nonperishable food that will stay cool and safe in cans and jars until you're ready to cook and eat it. Canned chili and soups and dried soup mixes, individual mini cereal boxes, and individually packaged crackers and peanut butter or pretzels will stay fresh. Try to store your food in the car at all times when you're not eating it because animals will scavenge at all hours of the day.

Get some ideas for kid-friendly camping foods.
