How Do I Store a Camp Kitchen?

Q. I have everything I need for my first camp kitchen except for a good way to store it. Any ideas?
— Taylor, Allentown, Pennsylvania

A. The No. 1 rule is to make sure your camp kitchen is easy to toss in the car and go.

A large plastic bin such as the Rubbermaid Roughneck Storage Box ($24) will do the trick. Want something more organized? Pick up the Camp Chef Sherpa Camp Table and Organizer ($125), featuring a 27-by-17-inch aluminum roll-top table, four zippered compartments and dividers, and telescoping aluminum legs.

For storing utensils (forks, spoons, knives), keep a small zippered bag made of a tough fabric that won’t tear easily. Keep other essentials like butane lighters, matches and must-have spices in their own small stuff sacks.
