Charcoal BBQ Grills?

As a general rule do campgrounds allow the use of Charcoal Grills?

Several parks in Texas last Winter asked to not use Charcoal due to extreme drought.

We have camped with a charcoal grill for over 40 years and have never had an issue at any campground. No issues even at the resort type campgrounds.

Yes they do unless there is an extreme drought, then they may restrict them.

We have had issues so also carry a propane grill. But we do prefer charcoal.

The Indian Casino in Temecula, CA does not allow charcoal grills in their RV park. They do not want hot coals in their trash.

During the forest fire season many state and national parks on the west coast do not allow charcoal or wood fires.

I also have read that folks have been asked not to use their propane fire pit where wood fires were prohibited. So rules do vary in our limited 12 years of experience.

Correct ... here in Colorado extreme fire conditions have controlled when/where/whether you can light up a charcoal fire (or any kind of fire) to cook on. It's a seasonal call. \ken

We stayed at a Motor coach only park in Hilton Head SC that would not allow charcoal grills. Propane was ok.
