The wife and I were talking about friends we camp with and were wondering how much others eat out or order out while camping?  We normally do not but have picked up a pizza on the way to the campground.

We almost never eat or order out while camping, cooking is part of the experience.  We did order a pizza one time and even though they told me they delivered to the campground, they couldn't find us.  I had to drive out to the main road and wait for the driver to come by. LoL

I agree with Joe, cooking is the experience while camping. Some choose to do it inside of the campers, some do it over a fire or an outside grill.

It sort of reminds me of the answer I tell people when they ask what's the difference between camping and Rv'ing.

When you walk down a row of people camping, you see the faces of people glowing outside by a fire.
When you walk down a row of people RV'ing, you see the faces of people glowing from their TV inside of their trailer.

We always cook at camp, mostly over the fire or with a charcoal grill. The only thing that i run out for is fresh produce. Most of our weekend trips are in amish country and my saturday morning routine is to head out on the scooter with a back pack and for less than $20 I fill the back pack with fresh fruits and veggies for the weekend.

Eating in or out depends on where we are and how long we're there. On long trips, 5 to 7 days, we usually eat out at least once for lunch. For the weekend getaways its strictly camp cooking. It also depends on where we are. Down in Myrtle Beach for Christmas we eat out a bit because the restaurants are close. When camping in Mystic CT. you have to go to Mystic Pizza. But if we're on the north shore of MA. I'll find lobsters cheep and boil them up at camp. For us part of camping exploring the locality , that may be a restaurant or a grocery store.
