Friends, my husband and I are out camping in our Westy (1987 VW Westfalia camper van)! It’s delightful on the Oregon coast, and we love our humble little home for a few days! We’re headed up north, which is actually my favorite part of the Oregon coast. Our family has so many fond memories of being at Pacific City and Cannon Beach! (Here’s a post on 10 Reasons Why We Love our Westy Camper.)

In the meantime, I thought I’d share with you some pictures of our little camper. Nighttime is my favorite for sitting around the fire, talking, dishes are cleaned up, and we’re enjoying a sweet dessert.

What sweet dessert? A very simple Strawberry Crumble Dessert. I made it in our camp stove oven, and the tartness of the berries (no sugar added) with the yummy topping … oh, my!

Bake in Camp Chef Oven.

I sliced the berries at home. Made the crumble before we left. Put it together and baked in our Camp Chef oven for 30 minutes.

Here’s a little secret about me and camping. I’m a happy cook if I have a plan, and I can chop, prepare, and get everything ready before I leave.

Oregon Coast Camping

There’s something about the outdoors that sucks my energy (it all goes into the beautiful elements) from wanting to spend any time cooking! But … we have to eat, and I still like to be creative.

And, I like to surprise my husband with a sweet nosh after dinner!

So this was a hit.

  1. Simple , enjoyable, and can not wait to try this. Although I am a far cry from the Oregon Camping dream.. I will be trying this here in beautiful Florida.. Thank you so much for this …

  2. I was sitting here thinking that the camp stove would be a cool wedding gift for my daughter and her fiance for their wedding. They will be campers and sometimes head down to Florence Oregon to ride quads and dirt bikes at the Dunes..this would be fun for them.

    Seeing as it’s been years since we’ve camped I’m not sure we did many desserts, but I always either brought homemade cookies or something like that.

  3. Oh, Sandy, what a beautiful recipe. I’m ready to build a bonfire in the backyard just so I can serve this next to it. I’m not sure what the neighbors would think, but it’s still a fun thought! OK. Maybe I’ll just make this and serve it at the table instead. :)

  4. I’m in love with your camper, the Oregon coast and this dessert!!
