We're headed home from a 6 week trip to Canada and Maine and have come to absolutely hate campfires because of headaches due to smoke. The weather has been gorgeous, cool night air, but we can't enjoy it due to nasty smell and smoke.

Every campground we go to allows campfires. Tonight takes the cake (in New Hampshire) because we are surrounded by them. Even when we close the windows and turn on the A/C the smoke comes in. The guy next to us keeps putting more wood on and has 4 tiki torches going too. It's 10 pm.

When we were out west last summer it was bliss because state law made fires illegal due to risk of wildfire. In Cape Breton Canada at the national park campfires were not allowed. Heaven. But every other park has been smoke city. Camping is no longer fun and we are thinking of quitting camping just because of this.

Does anyone know of any parks that have gone "Smoke Free"?

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.
