You know, itís not the campFIRE I donít like; it is the SMOKE. Now I know you canít have one without the other, but if it is your campfire, you can sit on the side away from the smoke or move if the wind shifts. But if that smoke is blowing right at my RV, I cannot do that. I have enjoyed sitting around a number of campfires, but unfortunately now that I am up in years, smoke bothers me physically a lot more that it did when I was younger.

Too bad campgrounds don't have "no smoking" sections - that could be campfires and cigarettes. I hate the cigarette smell wafting over also. I don't mind a campfire and we have them ourselves a couple times a week on camping trips but I don't like the smoke too much. It would be nice to have the option of a no smoking/campfire section....

Speaking of campfires, on our last camping trip, at around 11pm, I kept hearing a little kid laughing hysterically as I was getting ready for bed and flashes of light outside my window. I peeked out the shade and saw the child standing in the doorway of the camper and the grandmother squirting lighting fluid into the fire. Every whoosh of fire sent the kid into fits of laughter.

There is a snowbird rv park in Tampa, Bay Bayou, that has about half the sites designated as non smoking. I do not remember any campfires, either.

Well, I do know that Fishing Bridge RV in Yellowstone and Colter Bay RV in Grand Teton do not allow campfires. We just got back from a month long trip & I did miss having campfires when we stayed there. I'm asthmatic & for whatever reason campfires don't bother me, but I certainly can sympathize.

I'll mention that Colter Bay RV seemed to be pretty close to the 'regular' campground, which did have fire rings (it had closed for the season by the time we got there).

IIRC, in Yosemite the campfires must be extinguished at a certain hour (10pm?) in the summer. Not a total ban, but may be a bit better for people who don't want the continual smoke.

Have an air cleaner by Oreck. Works great.
