Just think of all of the world's problems that have been solved by sitting around the campfire.

Not only that, but friends and families becoming closer due to a campfire.

In my older years my asthma has gotten worse but I can tell you that I will sit by a campfire for as long as I am able. You just can't beat the overall experience. I have been doing it for almost 60 years. I can live without a fire though, I am content just staring at the stars. You have to admit that a fire in the summer keeps the skeeters away.

We people pass alot of senseless laws that are basically unenforceable. In my state, smoking is illegal in bars but people still smoke in many of them. Personally, i think it should be up to the private business owner.
Don't hide behind a law, either vote with your feet Or start a dialogue with your neighbor. My personal beliefs should not have to apply to everyone, just like if i can afford to drive a vehicle and pull a trailer, those who drive a Prius should not have the right to deny my priviledge.

Be careful what you deny because it can turn just as quickly.

We carry a full storage compartment with wood everywhere we go. We have a campfire where ever they are allowed. A good campfire is like a good desert after dinner.

How do you manage the prohibitions in force in some areas regarding importation of wood from outside the area?

Sounds like they are unaware or just ignoring those laws.

This may be how campfires will eventually get banned.

We love campfires! Always buy the wood locally, never carry any with us (uh, like we'd have room anyway!)

We like to have a small fire when we camp.....These people that try and burn a cord of wood all at once, 10ft high flames are part of the reason that campfires are on the way out

When camping in our local area I notice that many of the campers bring there own firewood. I would imagine that importing firewood is very hard to control. If you buy a bundle from the CG and supplement it with your own wood it would be very hard to detect.

Next to impossible. So firewood "smugglers", not asthma sufferers, will kill campfires which are easy to control with a no burn rule.

Capmfires

I'm from CA, and travel up and down the west coast. I am actually surprised at the upscale places that do allow fire pits and those that don't. I always assumed the concerns were about the sparks starting forest fires, but two different campground owners told me that it was about not burning a mark in their lawns or asphalt pads. I hadn't considered that problem.

All being said, I always ask about fires when I make my reservations.

I wish there was a way of getting a list of campground that do let you burn wood!

I have found the different opinions expressed here an interesting read. I have a breathing problem (one lung here) and they can give me a fit. But I don't want to stop others from enjoying themselves.
