Do you have a drum fan that you can turn on high and point back at their fire?

As Park Ranger once told me there is always “ one of those guys”. I like the people who get a campfire going at about 7:00 in the morning and keep em burning to midnight in 90 degree heat.

10 ' apart? That is probably against the city or county fire code. Then a fire in between with only 5' distance each way that's insane. I would call the Fire Marshall.

Fish N Farm did not resurrect the thread.

I love it when I get out a jacket that I haven’t worn since I was around a campfire. That smell is heaven, not stink.

Anyway, campfires are a fundamental reality of camping. If one camper cannot handle a neighbor’s fire, it is incumbent on that camper with the issue to find a remedy. That remedy may involve nicely asking the neighbor to take some action to reduce or eliminate the problem, while being prepared to graciously accept a “no” from the neighbor.

If campfires are a routine issue for some, then I suggest that 10-foot spaced CGs be avoided.

Unfortunately there is not much you can do now. Going forward the best thing is to select your campsites carefully. In your present case the size and proximity to the neighbors is your problem. Other times it may be the neighbors themselves that are the problems. Then there is the difficulty fitting your camper into the site or the odors from the campground restrooms, kids playing, dogs barking etc. Makes me thing I will take up boondocking.
