Please start a list of these campgrounds. We'd enjoy visiting them.

At this point in our lives we still enjoy a good campfire especially on those crisp nights and sometimes I will still cook over one. Now that said we don't specifically look for campgrounds that allow fires as our interest is more for what the area has to offer.

1 small pet peeve here.. I would like to Boycott campgrounds the sell green firewood! [emoticon]

When we got into RVing years ago, we stayed at a SP Ga/SC border. Enjoyed it a lot, even the campfires that weren't ours. About noon on a sunday the folks just thru the trees from us were packing up to leave. Their fire was still burning. I think they put every piece of scrap they had generated that weekend. Tin cans, beer cans, milk cartons, paper towels. This was nasty and so redneck trashy! Did I mention they had a baby? Babies generate lots of dirty diapers by the pounds. Apparently every diaper that baby used that weekend ended up on that smoldering garbage dump.
Seasoned, dry wood only with lots of ventilation if you insist on a fire please!

In the Georgia state park that we were at they provide a dump area (several) for gray water............. at one someone had dumped it all ............ they don't necessarily limit themselves to campfires!!

No campfires is a plus in my book.

Some campgrounds are covered by county rules against open fires

Haven't had a fire in the fire pit at home for the last several weeks now. The field behind the house started drying out (beans this year, corn across the road), No fires once things start turning brown. Sparks and ash in a drying corn or bean field could burn the entire field. We've got to use our heads here.

Fortunate, it was combined yesterday. But corn across the road is still up. Need to wait just a bit longer for fires at home. But soon coming!

Think and act wisely... Fire needs to be highly respected.

That's a bunch of "Barbra Streisand".


And apparently you have no idea why , but yet [emoticon]

I am retired forester. Burn bans are there for a reason. Respect them.

I see both sides of this issue. I generally agree having a campfire is VERY much a part of the experience however, I've been on the other side of things where I've had people make a fire 5-6' from the side of my rig, had neighbors w/fires where the smoke was just blasting us out of our rig (for hours & hours).

What I have a huge problem with is places that don't allow for controlled flame stuff such as propane fire rings & the like. To me that's just asinine.
