There is no logic having a campfire next to your $150K RV, $65K Trailer or $.2K Tent when the evening temperature is hovering around 95F.
Even in the heat, a campfire provides after-dark light that is much more appealing than a battery-operated lantern. Same logic that explains why people have fireplaces in a central-heated house. They don't need a fireplace for heat, but they still use a fireplace for ambiance.
I've never stayed in a campground that allowed fireworks, so I can't speak to that side of the debate.
