I Love Sitting Around a Campfire

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,411 People

    Yet I don't like it because no matter

    where I sit, the smoke always comes to me. Once, I just kept walking around the fire and the smoke followed me. I like the heat and the actual fire but not the smoke.

    Feels Like Summer

    There are few things that really feel like summer has arrived, but I think a campfire is my number one thing, followed closely by firing up the grill for the first BBQ of the season, hearing the crack of fireworks, having a cold beer just as it's starting to get dark, when it's...

    There Is Something Primal About It

    There is something ancient and primal about building a fire, and gathering around it.  Some of the closest and most beautiful moments Ive had with my friends have been around a fire we built. My friend Peyton and I usually build it together, no accelerants and usually no...

    I Like To Feel The Heat On My Face.

    I can sit and stare at the flames of a campfire all night. I like to poke the fire around with a stick and keep everything burning. A small steady fire is perfect. You can get close and stay warm while you talk with your campmate about whatever comes up. Camping and campfires...

    A lovely night here, doors

    and windows open. My neighbor had a fire going outside and it smells delightful. I'm sure she's burning cedar.

    Gazing Into Campfires

    HI. MY NAME IS ARCHIE. I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED SITTING BY A CAMPFIRE, JUST GAZING INTO THE FLAMES, WHILE MY MIND DRIFTS AWAY INTO DEEP THOUGHTS. OR JUST TO WATCH THE FLAMES, THEIR BRIGHT REDS, ORAGNES, YELLOWS & BLUES. SEEING THE FLICKERING AMBERS FLOATING INTO THE NIGHT SKY...

    Once Before

    And I loved it. Not really because everyone was there, but because it was dark and cold outside and the firelight was so soothing, relaxing. I love a campfire, its just so great. A small light in the darkness.

    Fire Therapy

    I have always enjoyed fires. Weather it be camping or the back yard. I feel it's one of the best therapies there is for stress relief.Plus the setting invites conversation, and you end up in a trance some times watching the flames dance around. And if you know which wood to use...

    Mesmerizing

    Something about the embers glowing is mesmerizing to me. I can get lost in thought for hrs. just staring , feeding ,and poking at it. Whether at the lake,in the firepit on the deck,or the fireplace inside in the winter.It's a great way to relax ..

    Campfires Are Meaningful To Me.

    Whether it is a campfire in the backyard with friends or at our campsite with family, campfires are comforting. We talk, be silly, cook in Dutch ovens, roast marshmallowsand make s'mores, warm up, watch the flames, and sometimes fall asleep around the campfire.

    The sound of the crackling wood,

    the serenade of the different animals' songs, the darkness wrapped around me, the moon hung as a witness to the tranquility felt, feeling at peace...it needs to cool down...I want to go camping.

    Best Thing About Camping

    If you go camping you must have a camp fire. Sitting around, chatting, drinking, cooking marshmallows and hotdogs. Throwing a new log on. Always needing to move because of the smoke. It's just fun being at a camp file.

    Damn Marshmallows

    Especially the color of the flame at night. When the moon is brighter than usual and it makes the flames orange essence so sensitive to the eye. The one thing I hate about campfires is someone always brings the damn marshmallows, but only one bag. It's like..you really expect us...

    The whole Fall season here is spent around a

    bonfire or camping fire. Such a wonderful glow, the smell that won't come out of your hair and the warmth.

    Good Times

    Some of the best times in my life were around camp fires.  Songs, skits, holding someone under a blanket.  Quite music or just quite.  Miss it.

    When I was younger we would spend our summers camping, making fires and cooking over them. The smell of a fire always brings back a sense of long, lazy summers.
