Camping is not just a warm-weather activity. It can be just as much fun in winter, as long as you stay warm, and have hot food to help you through the worst of the chill.

Whether youíre backpacking or car camping, there are all sorts of different foods you can eat while youíre outdoors. Here are some examples of classic campfire cooking for your next camping trip.

Damper
One of the most iconic Australian dishes, made of flour, water, and baking soda. This is probably one of the simplest and hard-wearing dishes to make when camping, as it is quick, filling, and has a relatively long shelf-life. You can bake it in one big loaf, or you can wrap the dough around sticks and cook it over the fire.

Smores
Smores, or toasted marshmallows, are a deliciously sweet way to end the night. Whether you like it only slightly warmed, or toasted until it melts off the stick, smores are always a great crowd-pleaser around a campfire.

Boozy Campfire Cheese
A campfire cheese fondue, if you will. Great for a midnight snack, or a quick pre-dinner treat. All you need in aluminium foil and cheese, and itís ready for dipping!

Campfire Oats
Quick, easy, and nutritious ó you can make your own instant oats that will keep for up to two months at a time! The best thing about oats is that you can customise what you want to go inside it. I myself prefer condensed milk, which has a long shelf-life and is easy to transport.

Campfire Baked Potatoes
Nutritious and delicious. All you have to do is add butter, and bake in the coals until soft, and youíre ready to go. You can do the same for sweet potatoes as well, which would make a great after dinner snack.

You can also go the barbecue route and cook sausages and steaks over the fire. There are some seriously creative recipes floating around, designed for cooking by fire, such as this one for brownies baked in oranges.
