    I only carry wood when i'm camping in my home state, few hours drive to my site. Rangers were fine with it for last few decades.. it's purchased or home harvested firewood i'd burn in my own home.

    Actually, my hideaway allows chain saws with permit to help clean up after logging and dead fall.. over the years the Ranger will tell me where I can find wood if I didn't carry my own.

    I usually carry my own oak split and dried, in Fl. Some states will not allow you to bring your own due to the items listed in msg # 20.by Byrd_Huntr

    I try to find the local firewood guy wherever I’m camping. I can usually pick up a grain feed bag of good seasoned wood for about $10 within a mile of the campground and the guy is making a mint.

    I see people all the time drive to different camp sites taking their extra wood....I guess it's a good idea. You would figure if you bring or bought firewood you would take it back home with you

    Even if I am camping close enough by that I would transport firewood from home, I trust my wood is clean and kiln dried. I do not trust everyone else, and so I have no idea what may be on my wood at the campground. I’m not risking bringing something exotic home. That’s why we don’t have ash trees in my town anymore

    Except in many areas its illegal to transport firewood across county lines without a permit.

    It is here in MI as well. At least I believe it is.

    No personal experience, but read a couple threads elsewhere on the 'flame genie' style of smoke-less portable fire pit that some people like. Uses wood pellets that are real cheap. Apparently you need to keep feeding the pellets, but a lot of folks seem to like them. Again, never seen one myself, just found the smoke-less aspect interesting...

    I have a BioLite fire pit. It’s close to smokeless and I can cook on it easily and burn garbage wet wood well thanks to the fans. It’s a great little unit when I want the fire to start cleaner and faster - such as those humid still days when everything is damp and smoke just lingers
