    I use a Camp fire if: It the site has a pit or burn spot already or if I am cold.
    Don’t get me wrong I love the feel and atmosphere of a camp fire but I don’t need.
    If it’s getting cold I forage for wood right off the bat, if not i leave it for the next campers needs.
    Also I drown my fires and if I am in remote parts without a stream or lake that means I use my drinking cooking water to put it out.
    I find myself cleaning up after other campers that came before me at a site as well.

    There are many situations where a campfire is a more responsible way to cook than using a backpacking stove. if there is wet weather, you may have trouble finding dry fire wood, so you can just use the propane stove
