The sun is always shining bright in Cape May, come visit the many beaches including the beach at Beachcomber Camping Resort. There is plenty of room to sit, relax, unwind, and enjoy a leisurely swim in the refreshing lake.

After a fun filled day at the Jersey Shore, there is nothing better than a meal cooked over the campfire. Just ask the owners of Beachcomber Camping resort in Cape May County. –Ken & Tammy (Brodesser) Gomez. They’re an independent family owned Camping resort. Run by the 2nd generation of the founding family. Beachcomber is located close to Victorian Cape May & Doo Wop Wildwood and is a favorite summer vacation spot for many families. Many of these families enjoy cooking on an open flame outdoors because it gives food that smoky, charred, flame ridden goodness. Here are a few simple, yet effective, tips for making sure you make the best campfire family meal.

Foil packets

Foil packet meals are a must! Cooking over the campfire doesn’t get any easier than throwing a meal in tin foil, wrapping it up and putting it in the hot coals until it is ready. Foil packet meals are extremely versatile. There are so many meals that can be made in tin foil. At this New Jersey Campground, the art of the foil packet meal alone would make you a campfire cooking master.

Cast Iron Cookware

Cast-iron cookware is durable, versatile, lasts forever, and will keep your food warmer for longer. Plus, you can use it to cook right on the campfire. No Cape May County campfire cookout is complete without it.

Use Dry Wood

Find the driest wood you can. If possible, use wood without any bark (many trees have bark that naturally inhibits fire). Break the wood into 12-inch-long pieces to more easily concentrate and control the bed of coals. Make sure you get about 10 to 15 fuel-size logs, this is a great way to keep the kids busy on the nights you are not on the Wildwood Boardwalk.
