Tips for Managing Camp Cooking Areas

Things You’ll Need:
  • Plastic container
  • Canvas shopping bags
  • Picnic basket
  • Cooler
Step 1
Manage you camp cooking area by first separating the items you'll be using into their own special containers. If everything has its own container, it will make finding items much easier. You can use everything from plastic containers, canvas shopping bags and a picnic basket to organize your food and utensils.
Step 2
Use a cooler that will be designated specifically for your food items. This way all the perishable items will be located in one cooler. The food will stay cold longer because you aren't constantly opening it to get a drink out. Use a separate cooler for your drinks.
Step 3
Contain all of your food items in a plastic container with a snap-shut lid. All the food will then be located in one place and you won't have to deal with a bunch of plastic bags holding everything. The container will also protect the food from getting wet or damaged.
Step 4
Place your cooking utensils, such as pots or pans, into a canvas shopping bag. Because you'll probably need only a couple of items to cook with while camping, the shopping bags work great. The handles make them easy to carry, they hold quite a bit of stuff and you'll be able to keep all of your items together in one place.
Step 5
Store your paper plates, eating and cooking utensils, such as forks, knives and spatulas, in a picnic basket or plastic container. You'll then have all the items you need to eat with stored in one place. Picnic baskets hold quite a bit of stuff, so it will also hold items such as the tablecloth, plastic bags and any other small items you might need in the kitchen.
Step 6
Use another canvas shopping bag to hold all the miscellaneous items that you might need in your cooking area. Items such as garbage bags, aluminum foil, candles, matches, plastic cups, paper towels and anything else required will store nicely in them. You might want to designate a separate bag for items such as lighter fluid or propane.
