6 Camping Gifts for Folks Who Love the Outdoors

By: Lodge Cast Iron / October 26, 2022

There’s nothing better than cooking under the stars after a day spent outside. And folks who love the outdoors know that when it comes to camp cooking, you need durable and versatile pieces that can handle big adventures. Need some inspiration? These gifts are ready to fuel the outdoor lover in your life for years to come. 

The Lodge Cast Iron Cook-It-All cooks two juicy steaks and a pot of potatoes over a campfire.

Camp cooking doesn’t have to be boring, and the Cook-it-All is the ultimate tool for making just about anything around the fire. You can create five different cooking configurations—dutch oven, griddle, grill, pizza oven, and skillet/wok—with just two pieces of iron. The possibilities are endless, but if you need some inspiration, try making a campsite pizza or searing steak with rosemary potatoes.

camp Dutch Oven
Camp Dutch Oven 

Camp dutch ovens are a campfire favorite because they’re designed with sturdy feet that can be positioned directly over hot coals and they’re large enough to slow-cook big meals for your whole crew. And while your dinner simmers, you can unwind with ghost stories and your favorite whiskey. Want to impress the people around your fire with a new recipe? Whip up a pot of campfire chili.

Fire and Cook Stand 

The first ingredient in any delicious outdoor meal is a good campfire kitchen set-up. The Fire and Cook Stand elevates cookware over the fire, encouraging airflow and holding kindling as you sizzle up your favorites. This is an ideal gift for the outdoor lover who already has their campfire cookware covered.

These gloves are made with heavy-duty brushed leather and deep cuffs for extra protection. They're the perfect gift to give alongside camp cookware and make a nice stocking stuffer around the holidays.
