Setting up a camp kitchen

Setting up your camp kitchen

Setting up a camp kitchen well means a safe space for you to cook, sit and eat with the family at the campsite.

Your cooking area can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be but it’s really important to make sure that your larder is secure from wildlife as loose food will attract unwelcome guests. Plastic or metal food storage boxes are best (as opposed to cardboard packaging) as they are more practical and durable.

The PLS Collapsible Storage Box is ideal as its compact when not in use but creates a great space for food when opened up.

For keeping food and drink fresh there are a number of options available, ranging from coolbags, passive and electric coolboxes and camping fridges. Our guide here explains them all so you can decide what is the best option for you.

Our range of kitchen stands all offer plenty of work surfaces that you can use for your camping stove as well as storage space for holding food and cooking equipment. Some even have basins that you can use to prepare food or do the washing up.

Decide how much space you think you will need when choosing your kitchen stand.

Your dining area can be inside or outside – dependant on the weather! Many of our tents have a large front canopy that give you the option to dine outdoors but stay dry if the weather is inclement.

The Coleman Weathermaster range of air tents feature an integrated front canopy that can be enclosed to offer a sheltered area from the elements or completely rolled back to give you an open-fronted area.

To create your dining area, we offer a wide range of lightweight folding camping tables and chairs in various sizes.

The Kampa Element Waterproof Table is a robust waterproof table which means water won’t ruin the tabletop and it is easy to dry. It has adjustable legs which means you can easily level the table on uneven ground.

The Coleman Packaway Table for 4 is a complete table and bench set that comfortably seats four people. The two double bench seats are topped with padded bench covers which are removable for washing. 

Lightweight, unbreakable crockery and tableware is really useful when camping and much easier than packing the home china and cutlery.

Our tableware range includes a selection of melamine, plastic and enamel plates and bowls. The Kampa Melamine Sets are one of our most popular sellers in store thanks to their look and feel.

Water is a key element in cooking and a smaller water carrier with a tap is handy for your camp kitchen.
