I think there is already a similar thread, but it's specifically for two people. I'm going camping in a group of four, although our trip is likely to involve a decent amount of pub time, there will obviously also be a lot of tent time so a surface won't always be available.

Can anyone recommend some non-fiddly games that might fit the bill, co-operative or competitive?

If you laminate the cards, and bring a dice tray, you could bring just about any dice version game, like
Catan Dice Game

Coup is a great game to play camping, especially after some time in a pub. Small box, plays quick, fun to replay.

For something more friendly, there is Bohnanza. It takes a bit more space with cards, but doesn't have to be laid out super neatly so you should be OK in a tent.

And perhaps not what you were looking for, but this game is very interesting with 4: Connect 4x4. Players have to work together to block others, while trying to get their own 4 in a row. There is some fun economics-game-theory psychology that happens!

Playing cards and play such as Spades, maybe Hearts, Indian Chief

Bohnanza could work

Hey, That's My Fish! in the pub (or if you can create a small flat space in a tent).

42 if I could persuade people to play it (a 4-player partnership trick taking game using a set of double-six dominos, I've never played it)

Any game the uses a simple deck of cards is ideal for tent camping. Small play area and storage requirements.
