Camp Cooking

The National Museum of Forest Service History presents a charming cookbook that celebrates decades of camp cooking by countless Forest Service agents in the field. Featuring legendary recipes for Dutch oven meals, open-fire dishes, and other tasty outdoor specialties used daily in the early days of the Forest Service, Camp Cooking has dozens of recipes, photos, and anecdotes that tell the whole history of these brave and hardy individuals.

Dedicated ranger's wives prepared meals with limited resources as they accompanied their husbands in the field, often supplementing cooking with k-rations cooked over an open fire. In rustic and remote locations, delicious, time-tested creations were prepared and served, including Dutch Oven Beer Bread, Parmesan Mashed Potatoes, Pioneer Night Stew, and Creamy Pumpkin Pie.

To pay tribute to decades of dedication of Forest Service employees, the Intermountain Region and the National Museum of Forest Service History ( are proud to present this collectible cookbook. For more information, visit

Camp Cooking 100 Years
While this is a great book for outdoor cooking in general, many of the recipes are for Dutch oven cooking. Most seem to be modern recipes but some are attributed to the oldtimers. I really enjoy reading the anecdotes, stories and recollections of the men (and women) who were there at the beginning of the forest service. There are also a great many photos that show what real camps looked like "back in the day...". Would definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in the outdoors and/or outdoor cooking.
