A good source used to be a BSA (Boy Scouts of America) handbook.
I haven't looked in one for years, but I remember reading about camp cooking in a dutch oven there.

Recently saw a cookbook where the lid was inverted and buscuits were cooked on it while the rest of the contents cooked. Interesting idea.

I enjoyed this article about Dutch oven cooking from backwoodshome.com:

http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles/beattie47.html

And another from Scouting magazine:

Probably doesn't count but I use mine nearly every weekend as a slow cooker. No recipes to share since I just use normal recipes.

Cast iron "camp" dutch ovens are big among the teardrop trailer crowd:

I have several but have never attempted the classic stack technique of putting one on top of another.

Love to collect this stuff. I have more cast iron than flashlights!

kind of the original crock pot idea. just about any crock pot recipe can be readily adapted to dutch ovens and vice versa.
