Sure you can take along some paper plates and plastic forks while camping, but for not much more you can get a serious upgrade and not have to worry about the plate melting out from underneath your food and landing in your lap.
We rent a dining set made of 'enamelware' - pretty much a tough metal structure with a coating baked on. Included is a plate, bowl, and cup, along with a knife, fork and spoon. A quantity of one gets you all these items for one person. So if you're a family of 4, run the math and you'll agree you'll need to rent 4 sets, or be waiting for the first guy to get done before you get to eat.
One downside to this enamelware coating - it does chip off some during shipping and use. What's underneath isn't quite as pretty, but it's as fit for dining as before.
