The difference, effectively, is none.

A camp oven is a cast iron affair, with or without legs. Slow cooking is the order of the day with a camp oven. Yummmy

as far as running it in..........

oil the oven -just el cheapo cooking oil is OK- & bring the oven to a high heat - on stove or BBQ or the real McCoy in coals. It will smoke a treat. Leave it here for half an hour or so, but make sure it dose not get too hot & go black immediately.
Then, when it has cooled down, wipe it dry with papaer towel.

NEVER wash your camp oven with soap/detergent. The mix of flavours from the last meal adds to todays meal. Just boil/stew/soak water in it if it is crusty/lumpy/revolting inside.

Isn't a Dutch Oven something you do with your mates in a car when you have had a dodgy vindaloo the night before?

Sorry I couldn't help myself ;-P

I thought a Dutch Oven was when you drop your guts under the bed sheets and then pull the covers up over your misses head and hold her there??... *innocent look*....
