Campfires - How do you make it Affordable and Reasonable?

I prefer a campfire.

For those that travel and camp out of state, how do you get your firewood and how do you make it affordable?

Thank you

Another thing you might try is to see if anyone has firewood listed on Craigslist at the location you are going. It's usually cheaper than buying from the campground.

I have seen a lot of homes, just outside a campground, that sell firewood. Usually much cheaper. For weekend trips we carry a large plastic tote with a dozen pcs. of firewood. I have ordered 1/2 cord delivered to our site before. Just Google firewood in the area you will be staying.

Fire cost?

Usually a big fire(6+ hours) is 2 bundles = App. $12.00
Cut that in half for a small fire and a shorter night........I spend that kind of money a lot faster and no where close to getting the enjoyment from it as a nice $12.00 fire and 6 hours of relaxing and having a nice glass of wine.
We also have a propane fireplace with us.......

Depending on the area and if I will be there a few days. Go the where they are building/remodeling a house. They will always have a "burn pile" of scrap/cut off ends, ask permission and search thru it. I know that it will normally be Fir or Pine and will burn fast but it is free and it will be burnt anyway.

We got tired of the battle over firewood. traveling from one state to another is a concern. so are bugs, did I mention TERMITES? We purchased a stainless Steel unit at the Tampa super Show that is gas powered. We have immediate bonfires, no ashes to cleanup, no hassle from over zealous rangers or owners. No worries about anything in the wood that could poison your food if you choose to cook over an open fire. CW has a smaller unit that is similar for a couple hundred bucks. safe travels... ed
