How to cook and eat well while camping

Cooking on the campsite doesn't have to mean crouching over a tiny stove, reheating tins of baked beans.

With the right cooker and set-up, a few essential pieces of kit and a basic selection of condiments, herbs and spices, you really can create some delicious meals on the campsite.

We want to help you create your dream kitchen. Our camping shop kitchen category includes stoves, dining sets, cups, kitchen worktops, etc.

Choose the best walking gear for camping

Heading into the countryside for a walk on the hills is a great way to connect with nature, especially when you are on camping trips.

But you’ll need specialist clothing and accessories to stay safe and warm in the great outdoors. Good footwear is vital and a warm and waterproof jacket is essential if it’s wet and cold.

There are a few things you should always have in your backpack: a map and compass, a head torch, a first aid kit and food and drink. Our Editor Iain Duff recommends some of his favourite walking kit for a day on the hills.
