Going to a campground and complaining about smoke is like moving next to the airport and complaining about the airports!

complaints about campfires and smoke
I like to have folks over for dinner sitting outside for a big pot of beans. Just like having a campfire we do from time to time get a few complaints and requests to clear the air.

Help for you folks that can't stand the smoke.
Go to YouTube and do a search for "bonfire sounds".
They actually have a picture of a bonfire WITH the crackling sounds.
Now you can sit in the warmth of you MH and enjoy a crackling fire on your iPhone .
ENJOY!!!

Again. A CG that doesn't allow fires, is a CG we avoid like the plague. IF you don't like campfires sit inside and watch TV. OH! My bad. That's what y'all do anyway.

I will again say that for me a camp fire particularly one that is not built properly or tended and allowed to smolder can be deadly, particularly under certain weather conditions. camping twice a Chain O Lakes we encountered inversion layers and the smog was worse that I ever saw it in LA back in the day before smog controls. We have a teardrop trailer, you live outside, period. Learn how to build a fire, and when you are done put it out.

If we can

If we can we try and go where we can build fires. It's important the grand kids can learn how it's done for safety reasons and for the enjoyment. I was a scout leader for years and I made it a point to make sure every boy new how to build and tend to a proper camp fire. The vast majority of "city" campers don't have a clue. Now pass me the marshmallows.
