Like what? Around here, the campground volunteers will throw it away or just take it. Sometimes firewood will be left alone, but not often.

So True.... and at our favorite Florida SP... they collect and resell the firewood you left for the next camper.. even when half burned

Happy Camping

I use an electric grill. Doesn't get hot on bottom. You can run your hand under it. But I've seen several burnt tables. Shame.

My 1974 Coleman stove does not burn the table at all. We have a folding cook table with half wire mesh half plastic we use at sites that don't have tables.

See burnt picnic tables at campgrounds all the time, don't know if people just don't care or if they do not know any better. It is a shame. Even seen, not to put grills on the tables in campground rules but still see many doing it.

Come on, there is no excuse for this!! A five year old could tell you this would happen! It's just some people don't care or don't think!
