Camping Packing and Cooking Tips for Newbies

Prepared hiker with her Rolla Roaster and dog.Going out on a camping trip for the first time this year? Or are you taking a camping newbie with you?

We support your being prepared and safe, so along with packing your original marshmallow toasting fork make sure to pack the other essentials- rope, warm clothes, extra food, etc. Always check trail conditions and weather before your departure and notify friends, family, or the trail managers of your plans. Packing will be easier if you know what is required for the trail, like bear canisters, and what is allowed in the area, such as lighting fires or gathering firewood. And if you’re planning any sort of hiking beyond trails of the nature walk variety make sure to have proper maps. The United States Geological Survey has topographical maps at Map Locator.

We suggest Backpacker magazine which recently featured articles focused on preparing for someone’s first camping trip. Check them out at First Night Out which explains packing, cooking, and more.

And remember, don’t forget your top-of-the-line marshmallow toasting fork and barbeque fork. Our customers rate the Rolla Roaster very highly. Check it out this recent feedback from customer Tom Olsen about the Folding Camping Fork...

“I was looking for the ultimate campfire marshmallow roaster and this is it. It is very well made, has a very long extension and packs up small. Look no further, this is it.”
