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"?

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.
