There are many reasons to camp in the fall: watching the colors change, breathing in the crisp autumn air, enjoying a good hike without getting too overheated, the list goes on. One of our favorites? Stuffing ourselves with fall campfire comfort foods.
These are the foods that are typically too heavy to enjoy in the summer; the kind of stuff that sticks to your ribs and warms your soul. Most important, cooking these dishes is the perfect opportunity to get your camp group working together to prepare a meal over your stoves. Then, everyone can sit around the campfire enjoying the fruits of your collective effort.
