Event details

Come out to the Goodenow Grove campground for an evening of campfire cooking. Go beyond hotdogs and s’mores and try making meals and desserts using pie irons, foil packets and Dutch ovens. All ingredients will be provided. After eating your fill, stay awhile and enjoy relaxing by the campfires. Or better yet, reserve a campsite and stay the night. Even if you’re not a camper (yet!), these recipes can be a fun addition to a night around a backyard campfire. Bring a chair to sit around the fire.
