I feel pretty good about saying those who burn tables, leave trash, and dump grey water on the site before pulling out don't read these forums.......or read at all !

I'm a firm believer in "Leave NO Trace" style of camping or hunting. The grill mount that came with my flagstaff holds the grill up off the table when used that way.

We carry a rake and start with a clean site. Cigarette butts are the worst then beer caps second. I also have a folding Army shovel and clean the fire pit out as well. We camp provincial wilderness style parks, like them to remain so.

I've prevented that with a sheet of aluminum foil.

That's two of my biggest pet peeves, right there...

If you don't respect your "home" for the time you're there, well, there's not much anyone can say to change that behaviour.

We don't go quite as far, cleaning out the fire pit, but I do make sure to burn it down completely on our last night at a site; and NEVER leave beer caps or butts around, ever...

We use this foldable aluminum table for our portable Weber bbq. Very easy to clean up and compact for storage.

X2.

We do carry a rake now. After camping at one of our most visited CG's for years, we found that asking for a rake to rake the site, mostly due to those wonderful Gumballs, was an open invitation from the Rangers. They appreciated our gesture of helping to rake the sites. Gumballs are the worst! So we decided to invest in a collapsible rake so when we started to visit other CG's as well.
Sure comes in handy. Just like at home. Hate Gumballs

X2 I just went this past weekend with an crew of ATV/Razor buddies to Turkey Bay OHV park in Ky. This is primitive camping with no designated sites. It has been two years since I have joined them there.

The small pieces of trash & wrapper ends I saw everywhere made me sick and more so angry. I left feeling sad, knowing that other POS folks will visit and see the conditions and consider it ok to add to it.

Sorry for the thread hijack Youroo. Just wanted to vent.
