Some do, some don’t. It really depends on a number of factors like the local law, state laws etc.
What Would You Do to Find This Out?
You’ve two options.
First of all, it’s best to do a quick google search to find out if the campsite you’re wanting to visit has a website because if they do then it would definitely have the answer to your question.
The second best way to find out is to simply phone them up and ask.
Well, there is a third option: you could just visit and find out! Maybe you’ll surprise yourself!
Just kidding. Only do this if you’re really nearby and you’ve tried the first two options already.
Anyway, if you are allowed a campfire, there are some important things to consider. Let’s take a look.
What to Consider When Making a Campfire at a Campground
Absolutely always keep your campfire away from your tent. This is especially true during fall when it gets really windy or at a time when the weather is windy. You don’t want your tent to catch fire or the forest to catch fire if your campsite is in the woods.
A gust of wind can blow the fire further than you might think so it’s always worth keeping it at an extra safe distance from all your stuff for peace of mind.
Also, bear in mind that if you’ve got some particularly light wood then it can blow off your campfire if the wind is strong enough.
Another thing, is that you should make sure that your campfire isn’t too big because it could get out of control or produce too much smoke, which can bother other people. Remember, you’re not the only person there!
A fire can get out of control if you use too much firelighter fluid. This is a common mistake for newbies. You really don’t need much at all. Fire spreads pretty well.
