Gluten free camping food ideas and a gluten free menu for camping, including gluten free camping recipes, tips, and tricks.
This post is sponsored by Schar. As always, all opinions are entirely my own.
Before we became avid campers, I never knew what food to pack, or how to plan a menu for camping.
Now I feel like a seasoned camper, and planning our camping menu is a breeze.
I'm sharing my favorite camping meal ideas, and all my tips and tricks.
what camping food is gluten free?
Lots of favorite camping food can be made gluten-free with just a fe easy substitutes.
Camping just isn't the same without hot dogs and s'mores roasted over an open fire.
Schar's Gluten-Free Honeygrams and Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns are camping must-haves!
I keep them on hand in my camping bin so we are to always ready to go camping!
Did you know that Schar's hot dog buns stay fresh for up to 3 months from when they are packages (if you don't open them, that is.)
If you use Schar's Chocolate Honeygrams, you can totally skip the chocolate bars.
And then your s'mores has chocolate on both sides of the marshmallow, too!
gluten free camping menu for a two night camping trip
This is a sample of what I'll pack for gluten free food for a 2 night camping trip.
- Dinner the first night, hot dogs and s'mores!
- Breakfast, scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, and hash browns
- Lunch, sandwiches or quesadillas on gluten free bread, or corn tortillas
- Dinner, Dutch-oven lasagna casserole
- Breakfast, gluten free pancakes
- Lunch(if needed, while packing up camp), leftovers, jerky, cheese sticks, and sandwiches.
Other things I love to pack are gluten-free canned chili (Hormel Chili with beans is gluten-free last I checked, many canned chilis are NOT gluten free.)
Homemade gluten free chili is also a great dutch-oven meal for camping. It is also easy to make on a propane stove!
we also really like packing cereal, and granola with some yogurt.
Don't forget to pack lots of extra gluten free snacks! My kids and I always seem to be extra hungry while we are camping!
On my shopping list for a two day gluten free camping trip:
- Gluten-Free Hot Dog Buns
- Gluten-Free Honeygrams
- Gluten Free bread
- Gluten Free Pancake Mix (and any ingredients needed to make it, I try to use mixes that only need water.)
- gluten free corn tortillas
- Gluten-Free Chips
- Dehydrated Hashbrowns
- Chocolate Bars
- Salsa and green chile
- canned beans
- Maple Syrup or Jam
- Gluten Free Pasta (short shape)
- Jarred pasta sauce
- Gluten Free Beef Jerky
- Instant Coffee or pour-over camping coffee
- Gluten-Free Hot Dogs
- gluten free lunch meat
- Bacon and/or sausage
- sliced cheese
- Eggs (liquid egg in the carton, if you like scrambled)
- shredded cheddar cheese
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Ricotta Cheese
- Butter, to serve with pancakes
- cheese sticks
How do you pack gluten free camp food?
I try to plan several meals that use only shelf-stable ingredients so that I don't have to worry about having to get more ice mid-camping trip.
All of the food that needs to be chilled goes into a cooler.
All the other food goes into a large plastic container.
I actually keep my large plastic container stocked with camping staples like Schar's Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns and Gluten Free Honeygrams.
I keep my coolers and bins of food locked in the car at night, to avoid attracting bears or other critters.

Nothing beats gluten free hot dogs hen you are camping! If you are camping hen there are fires allowed, roast them over an open fire. If not, heat them up in a skillet!
If you want to put a fun twist on your hot dogs, try my jalapeno popper-inspired hot dog recipe.
This easy gluten free "dump" lasagna is a camping staple for my family. e just load up a dutch oven ith browned ground meat (sausage or ground beef) and spaghetti sauce and then stir in some gluten free pasta. I like to use Banza, or another chickpea-based pasta to keep it filed with protein and fiber. A few dollops of ricotta, and some mozzarella on top, and we are set. It takes about an hour in the dutch oven, but you can also cook it using a propane stove on low heat. Just keep your dutch oven covered. As soon as the pasta is tender, you are ready to eat!
Stir fry is another easy skillet meal that is great for camping when you have a propane stove. Just bring your fresh veggies and chicken in a cooler. You can mix your stir fry sauce up before you go camping, so you can just pour it into the skillet.
Muffins are a great snack or breakfast when camping! Allergy-friendly gluten free muffins with seeds and dried fruit. Dairy free and nut free with a vegan option. Add your favorite dried fruit, seeds, and a few chocolate chips for fun!
Another muffin that is a family favorite when camping, we love these Gluten Free Lemon Crumb Muffins. They are sweet & bright gluten free lemon muffins with streusel. Great flavor from lemon juice, lemon zest, & lemon extract!
Gluten free pancakes are always on the breakfast menu when my family is camping! we usually bring pancake mix, but you can also make pancakes from scratch.
we LOVE making banana blueberry pancakes, the bananas add some sweetness to the pancakes. You can also absolutely make them using a pancake mix. we just add one mashed banana to the pancake batter, and then sprinkle the pancakes with blueberries before we flip them.
Camping pancake hack, you can mix pancake mix ith seltzer water instead of water or milk and eggs, it gives them the lift they need and then you have a completely shelf-stable breakfast!
Such great information.
Sure helps simplify packing for camping. I am certainly going to share all this info with my daughter in law. Thanks
Hi Becky, I'm so glad that this info was helpful to you. I love camping, it doesn't have to be complicated!
