Eating Good While Camping On The River

Updated: Jul 27, 2021

I want guest to have a memorable canoe camping trip. And I want guests to really love the meals, in particular. Camp food, camp cooking, can be a highlight of canoe trips, kayak trips, river camping, and swamp tours.

Canoe camping tours can be relaxing and enjoyable. Many people have this false notion that we need to "rough it" out there in the wilderness. The fact is that we can be comfortable on canoe camping tours. We eat great while out on the river. I often joke that if you don't come back from the canoe camping tour on the river better rested and weighing more, then I didn't do my job.

Three great meals are provided while on the river. Each guest will get a turn to prepare an evening meal with the guides. This is your chance to become familiar with camp cooking equipment and techniques. Below is a sample of some of the more popular menus.


  • Real not instant coffee. 1/2 and 1/2 and sugar

  • Oatmeal, with raisin, cranberries, almonds, walnuts, sun flower seeds, honey

Morning snack:

  • Peanut butter with carrots and celery.


  • Whole wheat bread

  • Ham and turkey

  • Pepper jack and cheddar cheese

  • Mayo and mustard

  • Sliced onions

  • Tomato soup on cold days


  • Grapes, meat and cheese plate

  • Chips and salsa

Dinner 1: Mac & cheese with pulled pork, green peas and corn on the cob

Dinner 2: Coconut curry over rice with red pepper and tofu

Dinner 3: Sautéed sausage (or vegetarian sausage), peppers, and onions on a roll
