Thanks for the replies! So helpful! For those who asked...
We are visiting the Black Hills area (Mt. Rushmore NM, Badlands NP, Custer SP, Crazy Horse, Wind Cave NP, Jewel Cave NM) and Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP, and Cody. We are going in late spring. We will stay in the Frontier Cabins at Yellowstone and in "camper cabins" at campgrounds in Cody and the Black Hills. We thought about renting a pop up, but after the cost of rental and then the campsite fee it actually cost more than the cabins.
Yes, Ice will be available, I guess I am concerned about how quickly it will melt and the mess of all that.
I love the kettle and 12V cooler ideas!
You guys are really helping so much - THANKS

The main reason is economics. There are 6 of us. Also, the reviews of the park food are not great at all, so I hate spending more money on sub-par food. I am thinking of taking a micro and will look into the immersion heater.

lunch and supper. We will be staying in the cabins in the park and you aren't supposed to "cook" in them. I have heard ideas to bring an electric kettle so maybe we could do that. I guess we could bring a camp stove and find a place outside to use that? We will also be staying in "camping cabins" along the way that are basically just cabins with beds - no bathroom, etc.

We will be going on a 3 week road trip with kids to the National Parks. We want to bring food, BUT won't have access to a fridge, micro, or stove. Any ideas on lunch and dinners that we can have without refrigeration? I don't want to be on PB&J the whole trip!! We will bring a cooler to keep a few things in but I don't know about access to ice either. HELP is appreciated! Thanks
