Camp Kitchen




Rubbermaid Roughneck Tote 25 Gallon Dark Blue - Pkg Qty 9


My camp kitchen is a 25 gallon Rubblermaid tote. You can buy a fancy one that folds open and closed and even locks.  But I'm a simple girl.  My tote works just fine for me.

Here is what it contains:

Utensils & Cookware

  • 14" cast iron skillet
  • 1 qt. sauce pan & lid (aluminum, crappy quality - on purpose)
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 metal spatula
  • 1 ladle
  • med - large size mixing bowl
  • dutch oven with lid and lid remover (a fork-like thing that removes the hot pot from fire safely)
  • small propane bottle
  • 2-burner camp stove

Small shoe-box-size tote inside contains:
  • matches
  • long lighter (to get into the fire ring without literally being in the fire)
  • qt & gallon zip-loc freezer bags (they have the double zipper)
  • 3-4 grocery bags for trash
  • firestarter (flint & steel)
  • sample-size dish soap
  • washcloth
  • kitchen hand towel 
  • can opener
  • sharp knife 
  • salt & pepper
Other stuff
  • firestarter bag (fat wood, lint, etc.)
  • plates, bowls, cups & utensils.  I suggest plastic or enamel or mess kits.     
  • 2 pot holders - cuz stuff gets hot
  • collapsible wash/rinse basins
  • bug spray
  • sun screen
  • cooking spray
  • 2 table cloths for the picnic tables
  • clothes pins & twine (for a clothesline)
  • plastic wrap
  • heavy-duty aluminum foil
It sounds like a lot of stuff, but it really isn't.
