I think I am going to look into one of those propane campfire pits, burning wood gets old after a while and expensive, also a pain to carry...

Good idea to those burning Propane pits 😄

I'm sure most people, like myself, would have no problem buying wood from the camp store if it was't priced so ridiculously high. You shouldn't be able to carry $30 worth in your arms when you can buy a whole cord for $150. Pure robbery.

Yeah if they made it more reasonable ppl would not sneak wood it, to me they should give you like 20 pieces for $5-$7 not 5 pieces for $7.00

Same here. We bring home scrap pine wood from the leftover cuts at work. Makes for nice, clean firewood. Usually we load up 2 round metal tubs ( 1 burn per night ), and stash them in the back of the truck. Makes excellent campfires. Best of all, we never have to buy wood.

If we go state park/forest we usually don't bring outside wood in. I pack a chainsaw and cut some local wood that is already down and dry.
I say usually because I have a good supply of oak from my own yard.

Two neighbors are contractors. I have a great supply of 2x4, 2x6, 2x10 plus some 4x4 and 4x6 at times. I take enough for a burn of about 90 minute sand keep it low.

We do the same, I pack a small chainsaw and we cut deadfall. Most NF or state campgrounds are ok with removing the fire hazard as long as you aren't being a nuisance with the noise. We usually drive 10-15 minutes up a logging road / jeep trail away from the campground.

We do have the Big red campfire now so I'm anxious to try it out and see how much heat it puts out.

Here is another interesting option. Clean, safe won't smoke out neighbors.
