Tip #5: Be sure to leave the camp area in better condition than you found it. Before pulling up camp, thoroughly douse your fire, mix it around with a stick or shovel, and then douse it again. Refill your pit or scatter your fire bed. When you are all packed up, scan the area to make sure that nothing is left behind.
We hope these tips have helped you prepare to cook safely outdoors this summer. It's always a good idea to learn alternative cooking methods and ways to prepare food while camping so you will be even better prepared in an emergency.

This is a great tip for camping, and all areas of taking care of nature – leave it better than you found it and be safe by being sure your fire is out.

Love the camp cooking tips! With a burn-ban in effect over most of TX, stove cooking is doubly important!
We're looking forward to lots of camping this summer. My husband has always been an advocate of 'leave it better than you found it.' Can't wait to use some of the tips.
Yes, as the Boy Scouts say: Leave No Trace.
Love the outdoor cooking tips and especially the comment about leaving camp better than you found it. I cannot tell you how many times we have went camping and had to pick up the place from someone else's mess before we could set up our camp.
I agree with this tip. Too many times I see campers pack up and leave without scouting around and making sure all of their fires are out or that they've picked up all of their trash.
