How to Build a Campfire and Cook Delicious Treats on It


By Maxye Henry

There’s nothing quite like a campfire to make your adventure complete. Can you imagine anything more relaxing at the end of a day outdoors than the sound of a crackling fire, the woodsy smell of smoke and the gentle glow of the coals? Have a cookout or a sing-along at the campsite, tell stories and roast marshmallows or other treats. These tips will help keep you safe and cozy.

1. Know the Rules


Though it may be tempting to build a campfire where one is not permitted, camping rules and regulations were created for one reason: To keep you safe. Call ahead to make sure that campfires will be permitted where you want to stay. If not, and if having a campfire is important to you, you might want to find another park.

Keep in mind that fire rules can change on a daily basis depending on weather conditions. If a park posts "No open fires due to dry or windy conditions," always be sure to comply for the safety of all.

2. Use Designated Fire Pits


If campfires are permitted, use the area that has been designated. These areas were chosen for a good reason (a good windbreak, good brush clearance, etc.). If there is not a formal fire area, make sure that your fire ring is surrounded by a circle of rocks large enough to keep wood and kindling contained so it won’t blow or tumble over the sides.

3. Clear Area of All Debris


Make sure there are no extraneous twigs, leaves, paper products or other flammables within several feet of your campfire. And don't forget to look up. Overhanging branches should be avoided.

4. Use the Right Wood


Different kinds of wood are needed to make a great campfire. Start by gathering a supply of all three:
∗ Tinder — small twigs, wood shavings, dry leaves or grass that will ignite easily will help get your fire going. (Never use flammable liquids to start a fire!)
∗ Kindling, or small sticks one-inch in diameter or less, go on next. Make sure to let your kindling get burning well.
∗ Fuel, or larger pieces of dry wood that will burn for longer periods of time.

Be sure to stack your wood in separate piles, well away from the fire area. Never pull branches off trees or cut living vegetation.

5. Don't Over-Build


Campfires can easily get away from you. Keep your campfire well within the borders of the pit, and keep it small to avoid sparking. You can always snuggle up to the fire (or each other) to keep warm.

6. Be Ready to Put it Out


Be sure to have a bucket of water and a shovel, or a fire extinguisher, nearby.

7. Be Safe


Enjoy your campfire, but be safe. Make sure an adult is present at all times, and discourage running or horseplay near a campfire.

8. Douse, Dredge and Dig


Before leaving the campsite, make sure that your campfire is completely out-and that means doing more than just dousing it with water once or twice. Douse with water, dredge up the fire to unc...
