Easy camping desserts make perfect endings to meals in the great outdoors!
You need to consider if you want no-cook desserts or sweet treats you have to bake, fry or toast as well as what equipment you need to make them.

We love cooking with campfires and these camp oven desserts are some of our favorites.

Make Ahead Camping Desserts
If you like baked goods but don’t want to do a lot of baking at the campsite, try making desserts that freeze well.

You can make these brownies at the campsite but you can also make them at home, slice them, wrap them individually and then freeze.
When you are ready, just defrost as many as you need during your trip.
