Maybe those fifty people should go buy their own campground and make their own rules.

Or maybe they could politely go over and talk to the 1 person, maybe offer them a cool beverage and ask them if they would consider dousing the fire for the good of the fifty.

Or just go online and complain without interacting with their fellow campers.

Anyone that has tent camped knows a campfire is for cooking first. Then a pleasant way to spend an evening.

Having typed that there are times a camp fire is not necessary or wanted. Ever since the Colman stove camp fires became optional some times. If you have been acclimated to real cold weather in modern times. The last thing you want is a campfire. It gives you a false sense of warmth. You should be wearing the right clothes to keep you warm first.

Now days a large number of folks do not realize what a campfire is for and think they are smart burning everything as their Daddy did. . There was a time that it was reasonable to do that. Before plastics came into the picture.

If I see folks having a great time around a campfire that does not smell bad I smile. Even if it is smoky. They may learn how to make a better fire.

Future Mrs. goreds2 and I always kind of snicker when campfires are active at 90+ degrees. The campers paid for their spot so they have that right to do so.

life and getting along

Been places where neighbors were a PIA ( not just camping but at S&B too)! We have a fire pretty often but we use a Flame Genie which we bring along. It uses wood pellets so no worry about green or sappy wood smoking up the joint and most places will allow it when they ban ground fires consider it the same a charcoal grill. Very controllable and compact. Propane fire pit is nice too. Brings back memories of my 3 boys going through Boy Scouts getting their Eagle Badge each and every one. Good Times

Like the saying goes If you can't stand the Heat (smoke) get out of the kitchen. LOL

I don't think there's one single post in this thread that suggests that "others have to change or cease their legal behavior just because they don't like it".

I kind of wonder why you would even make that comment.

I do not mind a Clean Burning camp fire with little smoke, but the idiots who spend hours trying to create a fire with wet wood and only manage to fill up the air with smoke should be dragged slowly through a real fire....

Camping and campfires go together for us and any of our friends that I can think of off the top of my head. It's never 90 degrees here in the evening either, rarely that warm during the day for that matter.

Sitting around the campfire is a great way to socialize.

Same thing when I was at myrtle beach last week. A campfire at the hot beach, are you freaking kidding me.
