If there is a sporting goods or bait store in the area where you are camping, they can give you advice.

In general, worms work. Also, here’s a site that says carp like creamed corn.

Corn works, as well as dough balls, but why do you want to catch carp?

Here you go, The seven best carp baits.

Good luck and enjoy yourself!

PS I would go the sweetcorn route. It is probably the cheapest and easiest to get. Plus if you don’t catch any fish, at least you will still have something to eat.

Haven’t been fishing in years, but one of the most successful baits I remember was a cheesy dough bait. We went out on the river and in about 3 hours had enough bullheads and catfish to do dinner for 10!. We always threw the carp back.

Sometime later I found that carp can be prepared in a flavorful way.
