Campfires have been part of camping in my family going way back to “who knows when” until now, including children, grands, and great grands, so far.
With the correct wood and proper parenting, none have been harmed.
It is our legacy, our heritage, our present, our future, their future!
S’cuse me. Gotta smoke some ribs. The kids are running around, and the fireflies are twinkling......

What if it could save just one child? Why can't we have common sense campfire laws?

Unfortunately, the only way to avoid campfires is, as others have suggested, to stay in parks that don't allow them.

*THAT* was funny!

My vote is for *camp* fires as well. I find it annoying when in a campground that does not allow them.

“ Light it UP “ I burn one last night and the smoke was going to our neighbors site, So I moved the fire pit to a different location and they sat and enjoyed there WiFi. The lady even ask how we were doing, I said we are enjoying our campfire!
I would burn campfires if it was 150 deg. out!

That's why there are hiking trails, too get away from it all! If there is a fire ring im having a fire. If not I will go somewhere else. You should do the same.

We are currently in a seasonal site in ohio for 3 months. Small sites 25' x 40'. All have fire rings, too close to mine,and neighbors RV to have a fire without scorching the paint on each others coach. Some of the older lots are bigger so after making friends with them we just go to their site for camp fires. Works out great. They are weekend folks, but told us to use their firepit anytime we want, even their wood. We in turn look out for their site when they're not there. Schools out, and weekenders with kids, music, campfires are enjoying nature. During the week it's a ghost town. Works out well for us. RVing for us is about going around making new friends among the very diverse people that make up the camping lifestyle. Sure there are selfish people who would rain on your parade, but that's why we have wheels on our RV. Enjoy

All of this talk on camp fires has inspired me to maybe light two of them at the track this weekend.

As my fires are usually just for the "having a fire" aspect of camping out. I use a couple bags of the some kind of enviro logs from the local hardware store. I fire them up for a couple to three hours and out it goes. They emit minimal smoke and the smell is pleasant.

And it does what it is intended. Usually draws a crowd to talk racing, cars, and so forth.

I go out in the RV to get away from stressing about things. MANY others in the RV world in my opinion, seem to actually SEEK out stress by letting even the smallest things get totally under their skin........

When I raced our pit was the most popular one because of our firepit, I miss those days.

With only 4.4 deaths per 1,000,000 children in the age 0-14, I'm guessing, if you take out house fires and car fires, the number would be way less than 1 child per 1,000,000. Have you EVER heard of a child being killed due to a campfire? I don't think I have.

Campfire smoke!

All this talk has made me want to fire up some ribs in the smoker for about 5 hours and sit around a campfire while we wait.

No offense but everyone in this world just need to lighten up. It’s camping and roasted marshmallows over the fire are part of that and have been for the 60 years I’ve been around.

Probably should have had a helmet to ride my bicycle, not drank from the hose, or played with the liquid mercury that was available when I was a kid - could have got hurt.

If you don’t like them find a place where they are not permitted.

I have camp hosted where camp fires are allowed. Lots of work from the cleanup standpoint and the fires do smoke things up. Sitting around a campfire with family and friends having a beer is special. I still remember campfires when I was a boy and my folks built one, good times. Recommend going to a CG with no fires.
