All of them.

Being "boycotted" because we do not allow fires of any kind is number 1,247 on my list of things to be worried about, right after number 1,246: "Aliens teleport all the world's porcelain toilets to their deathstar, leaving nothing but exposed sewer pipes in the stalls."

but they will lose some number of potential customers.

And gain others.

"Aliens teleport all the world's porcelain toilets to their deathstar, leaving nothing but exposed sewer pipes in the stalls."

Those are going to be awfully hard to sit on in the middle of the night in the dark! Guess I'll have to buy a plastic or wood seat cover to keep handy! [emoticon]

No Campfires..........PLEASE post those CGs
Call them out
We should start an ongoing list that gets updated frequently



That way I can pick which ones I will partonize cause I hate campfires!

Not so much hate them.....it's just there are MORE & More inept campers that do NOT know how to have a campfire.
They think smoldering/smokey is good vs an actual fire
And then they go inside!

YEAH.CGs with NO Campfires.



I like the concept



x2. I have always enjoyed campfires, but as fewer and fewer campers know HOW to have a campfire, it pretty much ruins it. A campground that looks like a fogbank just ain't gettin' it.

The police department is working on it, but they have nothing to go on. LOL

I'm sure the OP can build and maintain a decent camp fire and not smoke out the whole loop! I too love a good camp fire with the family sitting around it and enjoying the experience. Been doing that since I was a kid back in the late '60's..

Problem is, the majority of "campers" these days don't have a clue how to build and maintain a decent camp fire... [emoticon]

At least the ones that always seem to be around me! ha, ha!

It's mostly just luck of the draw of where the wind is blowing and who you have camping next to you, and of course, every single fire is going to expel 'smoke', but I do have to agree with the other's that when you throw your trash in the fire pit and then light it up and oh yeah, that smell is just awesome for your neighbors!! Thank you for doing that fellow camper!

Anyway, a no win situation for sure...

I don't understand the no propane fires... Even with burn bans, in our WA State parks, you can use your propane fire pit.. You can't burn a charcoal BBQ, but you can use propane even with a full on burn ban going on..

Oh well, I love my camp fire too, but in the end, you just gotta do what you gotta do..

Lol, the best thread ever. Campgrounds that are so full of smoke they look like a fogbank? Where the hell are some of you folks camping?

California's have plenty of campfires going right now. I don't think they are enjoying them very much.

I would think it would be better for a campground to have one communal bonfire of a evening away from the RV'S instead of a fire at each site.
