Food eaten outdoors tastes mighty fine. Whether you’re camping or backpacking, the fresh air brings a certain je ne sais quoi that really heightens the dining experience.

In the Camping Food Challenge, we’re looking for your favorite camping and backpacking food projects and recipes. The winner will take home a BioLite BaseCamp stove and charger, a Kindle Voyage, and more goodies.

And our friends at Hipcamp have volunteered to help judge this contest, so make something that will be sure to wow them! (They're super outdoorsy.)
