Without reading all 80 previous posts I run the risk of repeating but....

Another option is fireplace logs from WallyWorld or other big box store.
On our FL trip this winter we bought a case of recycled waxed cardboard logs. They were obviously cut up boxes pressed into logs.
The burned nicely and were relatively cheap.
Just one more option so you can sit outside and stare into the flames...

The lint, candle wax, and eg carton idea was in my son's cub scout book. We've been using it since (and he's now 30). Save your burned up candles to use for the wax. Pack the lint as tight as you can.

PS. their were a couple reply on gas firepits. If your near to an Oceanstate job lot, they have one on sale.

Most new pallets in our area are kiln dried if they are to have product shipped on them out of state or the country they will have a stamp on the side showing they have been kiln dried I do believe its that law is all states. I have been to the mills and had to bring the paper work with me showing the certification when I picked up a load of pallets

Last year when we camped at Grand Lake, CO, we found a spot where they left piles of local wood with a "free firewood sign". Not sure if it was town provided or just locals, but it had a little of everything from stub lumber to perfectly cut limbs.

DW doesn't like campfires, so we hope the people that park close to us feels the same way.

I don't worry about the next door camper, whether they enjoy campfires, or not. For us, and especially in the Fall of the year, one of the great camping enjoyments is sitting around a nightly campfire, relaxing, and being mesmerized by the camp fire.

Me too. We like AC. I like rain. More rain less campfires. But hey I like wieners over a campfire and marshmallows

Camping is just not camping if you don't go to bed smelling like a campfire.
