Camp fire

Does anyone know of any campsites that allow you have a camp fire?
I've just got back from a trip to see family in South Africa and camping with a fire is the done thing there. It adds to the whole experience in my view.

I have stayed at sites with a fire pit, but I'm afraid I can't remember the names

I've stayed on many campsites and used my '1600 rpm BBQ' (a washing machine drum!) with no objections from site owners - check out my website for details:

Hi Folks,
Llyn Gwynant campsite by Snowdon allows campfires on their firetrays, you can only use the firewood that they sell at £4 a go but that is ok as a campsite full of campers foraging through the local woods would be akin to a plague of locusts. The site is basic, no shop, just a wardens hut and toilet/shower block, but the location makes it the coolest place to camp in Wales. The site is on the shore of Llyn Gwynant, with a crystal clear river feeding in to it. We spend a lot of time there with our canoe, once the children are in bed it is so good to sit around the fire chatting, playing guitar and watching "natures TV", hope this is of help. they have a website at

good luck

Keld in North Yorkshire is great but can get a little noisy at night as every camper seems to have a fire and sits up late. There are other fields which are quieter.
Knotlow farm, Flagg near Buxton is our other favourite, plenty of room to spread out here.
Both of these we found through

This summer in Germany the site at Schierker had a communial fire going most nights. Some people even pretended they could play the guitar!

We used to be canvas campers but are now using a motorhome.
