Camp oven
Let’s deal with the kitchen equipment first. You will have different requirements depending on your own tastes, the amount of comfort you wish to have and effort that you want to put into enjoying yourselves, also the amount of room that is available to carry the amount of selected equipment. Some of this equipment is essential and some is nice to have.

You will have to assess what equipment you will take for the trip or camp you intend, but the list below is a guide.

Just a tip to remember if you don’t have an esky or fridge and can’t afford to go out and buy one go and see your green grocer/supermarket/fish shop. They all use the poly styrene boxes with lid that broccoli and fish comes in. The fish ones will need a wash out but these are better than nothing and are usually at the right price, Free!
