We have spent our fair share of Thanksgivings at the campground with family and friends over the last 15 years, and every year the menu looks a bit different depending on where we are, who we are with, and what we are in the mood to cook. We’ve done traditional meals with a full turkey and all the fixings, using the RV oven and an army of crock pots and Instant Pots. We’ve also experimented with smoking and frying the turkey–and experienced varying degrees of success.
One of our favorite campground Thanksgiving menus has made a repeated appearance over the last decade and become a crowd favorite. The menu offers all the classic flavors of the holiday with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, apples, and pumpkin. But the meal is served picnic style, making everything easier to prepare, eat, and clean up in the great outdoors.
