Chuckwagon Dinner

Available at: Beaubien, Clarks Fork, Ponil

A Chuckwagon Dinner at Philmont Scout Ranch is a unique dining experience that harkens back to the traditions of the American Old West. Participants prepare and are treated to a hearty meal served in a rustic outdoor setting reminiscent of a cowboy camp. The term “Chuckwagon” refers to the wagon historically used on cattle drives to transport food and cooking equipment.

During a Chuckwagon Dinner, you gather around a campfire or outdoor cooking area to enjoy a meal cooked over an open flame. The menu typically includes classic cowboy fare such as grilled meats, beans, cornbread, and other campfire-cooked dishes.
