Usually bring our own, as we camp in the local/regional area. Sometimes do buy though, for the convenience of it.

As to leaving wood behind, we don't. Around here, the CG hosts will remove whatever is left behind. Probably to re-sell at the camp store. [Joke!] :^)

I just grab whatever firewood I need from the newest neighbor that pulls in while they go on their first walk after setting up. The price is right and the entertainment value of listening to who gets the blame for forgetting the firewood is hilarious.


Joking people joking


In regards to the OP.....If and that is a big IF I have any left over I will generally ask neighboring sites if they want it or I just leave it for "someone" else to use. I could care less who that "someone" is or what they do with it!

When Boon Docking if where is some wood previously left behind I will take it to my campsite. When I leave my left over wood can got to the next Boon Docker that comes along.

Can't vouch for nowadays, but back when we were in scouting, it was more about skills and leadership than about "social justice" and alternative lifestyles.
POINT BEING ... in Scouting, there was the concept of leaving a "Courtesy Woodpile." You know, leave the campsite better than you found it. At some of the more mature Boy Scout ranches (for those who know what PHILMONT was all about ... ) you would leave enough dry wood, kindling, tinder ... so that the next group of hikers, who like you were a weeks hike from base camp, would be able to get the dinner fire going even if it was pouring rain that day.

To compare leaving wood for someone who hiked in the mountains for a week to someone who drives right in to their site is apples and oranges.

But....you're right that it was different. I remember when camping meant taking a tent and headed for the mountains. I also remember camping in small campers in the National Forest campgrounds during huntin' season. No electric, no water, no cable hook ups. Fast forward to today where one drives in pulling their $30-$40k camper with their equally expensive truck. Sets up their satellite dish and their keurig and complains if they smell campfire smoke while camping.

Up here we have the Asian Longhorn Beetle. Transporting firewood is a big no no. There are even signs along the highway in places to warn people against transporting firewood.

Thank goodness, I thought I lost my mind when I went to get it out of the camper. Now I know where to place a couple mouse traps next time!

Scouting has done you well my friend. And it is still taught that same way today in the BSA. Sadly, the enrollment has dropped off, but the scout way is still strong, alive and taught to the lucky boys who discover scouting. Scouts honor.

I have walked more than 800 miles on the Appalachian Trail and spent a many night cooking and I have yet to build a campfire. I take a white gas stove, it's far easier and quicker plus you don't have to look firewood. Camping to me is a lot more than building a campfire.
