A woman can be seen enjoying an East Texas spring break getaway to Mill CReek Ranch Resort, prepping her ingredients for her campfire recipe.

Spring break is nearly around the corner, making now the perfect time to start planning your visit to Mill Creek Ranch Resort, the premier East Texas RV and cottage resort. You’ll be able to vacation at your own pace, reconnect with nature, and enjoy the company of those you love. We have something for everyone at our resort, from RV sites and cottage rentals to tiny houses and a glamping yurt. Our resort is the ideal spring break destination for families, friends, and couples alike! 

This spring break, you and yours can get back to the simple life, surrounded by the great outdoors and in reach of wonderful amenities. Whether pulling in the trusty RV or staying in one of our fully-equipped cottages, guests’ overall vacation experience will be elevated because we offer more—more activities, more space, more fun, and more opportunities to create unforgettable memories during the spring break season. One way to get the most out of your East Texas spring break stay is to try out the following list of refreshing campfire dishes. While we have fire pits dotting the resort grounds (great for smores on chilly nights), these “campfire” recipes can be made in any cottage or RV kitchen. That said, we do recommend eating them around the campfire pits near your lodging! 


  1. Pack some fresh berries to pair with this decadent Stuffed Camping French Toast. Seasonal fruit makes for a great spring topping, adding in bright flavors and colors! 

  2. Embrace some tropical notes with these Hawaiian BBQ Pork Walking Tacos! This dish is perfect for cool spring nights around the fire pit.

  3. Many folks spend their spring breaks indulging in Sunday brunch! Create your own special version of brunch with this one-pot Spring Green Frittata

  4. After an afternoon of swimming in our on-site pools, head back to your cottage to enjoy a cool adult beverage. Raspberry Lemon Drop Cocktails, anyone? They can be made non-alcoholic, too! 

  5. Don’t feel like cooking? Try out this crisp No-Cook Southwest Salad recipe. You can add in your favorite salad veggies and toppings. 

  6. We’re circling back to fresh berries, which make up a large portion of this tasty Pound Cake and Berry Campfire Skillet Dessert. It’s so easy to make! 

  7. Drizzle some local honey over this Quick & Easy Campfire Apple Crisp and call it a day! Perfect for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack for your little ones. 

  8. If you’re coming down for the weekend this spring break, consider making these citrus-y Homemade Orange Sweet Rolls. They can be prepared ahead of time at home! 

  9. Need a delicious snack for on the go? Elote (Mexican Street Corn) is an excellent option for you. It’s creamy, spicy, and rich! 

  10. Overnight oats have taken the home chef scene by storm! They are also great meals to store in your cottage or RV refrigerators. We recommend these Mango Overnight Oats.
