There is nothing that suits fall more than a warm, hearty bowl of soup. If you are out camping, then that chill in the air will pretty much force you to reach for soups that will keep you both full and warm.
There are a lot of recipes to choose from, but even in a spacious RV or cabin, all campers want to do is boil the broth, throw in the ingredients and leave the rest to the magic of the fire. Here are the top three soups that are sure to meet the requirements of your brave fall campers.
