The beer kegs we had floating in the pool got stuck.
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.

If it is 95 degrees I won't have no fire...
I probably won't even be outside.
I'll probably be in the trailer watching a DVD.

I enjoy a small campfire when camping. It just adds to the enjoyment while we do hotdogs or s'mores. I've never heard someone complain unless the fire was made outside a designated firepit or fire ring. Fireworks are another story. Most places I have camped do not allow them and will put a stop to it. Fireworks have a place but a campground isn't one of them. By the way, our city ordinance does not allow fireworks within city limits but people do it anyway during July 4. Good for them, stupid law.
