Many experienced campers keep a "camping box" ready to go. A camping box need not be expensive. Most of the following items such as cups, bowls, plates, and silverware can be purchased at your local thrift store. The box itself can be anything large enough to conveniently store a collection of food preparation items such as a plastic bin, suitcase, or even a dedicated cupboard in an RV. Remember that if you camp in bear country, you will want your camping box to fit inside a bear-proof storage container, along with your cooler, cosmetics, etc. Be safety conscious and space conscious!
Here are some suggestions, but feel free to outfit your camping box to fit your needs.
