Going camping and need ideas?

I need your help.
In a few weeks we are going up to Maine to go camping for my b-day. We probably will not be taking any cooking stuff with us. Some nights we might build a bonfire and some nights we won't, I am going to need to have some stuff on hand to eat for a full meal. Does anyone have any recipe ideas, or helpful hints? Oh, I'm not crazy about dried fruit.

This is the only thing I thought of so far:
energy bars
some stuff for smores
potatoes (for bonfire)

Cold fried chicken,ribs already done heat over fire,good cold cuts and cheese and great rolls,potato salad already done, coleslaw,pasta salads,maybe kabobs cooked over fire,chile and beans ,cornbread all already made if you can take a small cook stove with those small propane containers you can heat all kinds of stews etc.And of course lots of snacky things.DONT forget some desserts.Fresh fruit etc.
Im guessing your car camping if not then this is not what you want.

Burritos are ALWAYS good for Camp!

You can fill them with whatever you like, and they are individually wrapped and ready to munch whenever!
(foil wrap will allow you to throw them on the fire to "warm-up")

I usually always make "Eggs/Chorizo/Cheese"
Burritos for Camp...

I am going to be camping with a tent away from the car. We will probably be gone for about 5 days, 2 days we will be out on an island. I didn't think that meat would be good if I wasn't able to keep it cool? I thought maybe some type of bean dish might work.

Nuts are a great thing to take camping.

Maybe something like a couscous dish without meat (don't use chicken stock to cook it).

How about those premade dehydrated camping meals. There is a lot more variety and they taste decent these days. Also if you have access to an Army surplus store maybe they have some MRE's (Meals Ready To Eat). They are easy to pack, do not take a lot of room, and some even come with their own heat source. Actually I think you can even get those online.

Are you going to possibly be near a stream or other body of water where you might be able to catch some fish? Nothing is better than fresh caught fish on a camping trip. Of course you can't count on that as your only source of food, but if you get lucky you might get a nice fish or two to have as a treat.
