Guests at Happy Camper can indulge in a tantalizing array of comfort foods and signature pizzas crafted with care and creativity. From mouthwatering appetizers like Queso Elote Dip and Mozzarella Breadsticks to savory options like Chicken Wings and Baja Fish Tacos, there’s something to satisfy every craving. Of course, the star of the show is the pizza, available in both Happy Camper’s signature dough and tavern-style crust. Choose from classic favorites like cheese and pepperoni or opt for specialty pizzas like BBQ Chicken and Prosciutto & Spinach.

With Gene by my side, we eagerly perused the menu, our mouths watering at the thought of the delectable offerings awaiting us. From the moment we dipped into the irresistible Whipped Feta and savored the delicious Hummus Plate, we were hooked. Also, I could not resist to eat all of the delicious French fries!!! The flavors were bold and satisfying, setting the stage for the culinary delights to come.

No meal at Happy Camper is complete without a refreshing beverage to accompany it. Sip on the signature Big A$$ Lemonade, indulge in Chambongs, or opt for a classic Margarita to elevate your dining experience. I opted for the Hot & Unbothered.
