Following is a short guide with the help of which one can build great campfires:

If you can build a good fire for your camping trip, you can also truly enjoy the camping besides impressing your friends. Though many camping equipment these days makes the traditional campfire look dull and miserable. If one knows how to build an appropriate campfire, then it can make a significant difference.

Previously, when there were no gas torches or matches, making an appropriate campfire was vital to any outdoor actions. People would enjoy the warmth against cold weather and cook food for all. When the temperatures at night become lower, the campfires provide a space where everyone can assemble and enjoy the warmth.

Besides heat, the campfire also drives back the wild animals and makes the place safe. Lions, other beasts, and wild dogs are not eager to come near the campfire. This is the reason that the campfires always remain burning all night.

Although the skill of building campfires is partially lost as the matches seem more practical, campfire building as an art is still significant and vital to any camper's trick list.

Firstly, the secret of beginning the campfire is that you must start it fast. It is possible only if you know exactly what is required to start the campfire, i.e., fuel, oxygen, and heat.

The oxygen present around us is not readily obtainable all the time during campfires. The fuel should be arranged in a way that it can supply an ample amount of air. This supply can also be increased by blowing in the cinder or fanning the existing flames.

Usually, heat is produced through friction for the campfires. Perhaps, you have to utilize a group of techniques for making this heat. The methods include using flint stones, rubbing two sticks together, etc. On the other hand, if you do not have the correct fuel, you will not get magnificent flames.

The fire will keep burning because of the fuel. So it is an essential part of your effort to find out the correct type of fuel for building a fire and also maintaining it. If you put heat on the firewood, the fire will not be made that way. Tinder is required; it is easily flammable stuff that burns quickly and releases much gas and heat along with huge pieces of wood that helps to start a fire.

The best fuel is dry leaves, twigs, dry sticks, and bark. These sticks begin the fire and then help to continue it. Keep in mind that if the more significant and more complex pieces of wood are burnt, only you will succeed in building a fire.

Several ordinary campfire designs are:

Tepee - For rapid fires and long-lasting at night, tepees are good. A lot of fuel is used, so you will need enough tinder. You must place and balance the large burning wood next to each other around the energy vertically. It assures that the gas and the heat of the tinder are produced so that it helps burn the long pieces of wood. This fire is perfect for not only boiling water but for all other campfire purposes.

Pyramid - Place the logs horizontally on the ground and make a pyramid, then make one more layer on top of the next; in this way, slowly form the pyramid. Though it is tough to begin this campfire, it will finally help you produce a good amount of charcoal. You can use that later, it also burns very well, and the fire remains stable.

Parallel - Parallel fire sets the tinder amid the two logs. It is a productive burning fire as the logs are also burnt inside. Thus the heat and the fire go within the two records in a good and snug place.

Star (Indian) - This fire is generally seen in old Western movies. Logs layout is just like the spokes of the wheel. In the middle, the fuel is placed. The fire can be easily maintained. However, you only have to drive every spoke of the revolution in the seat when fuel burning takes place.


Several other types of campfires are also available and have definite reasons. However, building and sustaining it requires a lot of practice to make it perfect for any outdoor art. We often see a mother tell their children not to play with fire. It would help if you treated it with esteem because it is so powerful that it can save and demolish. Keep in mind to follow the safety measures after completing the use of fire. Cover the fire with water; if there are any leftovers of the campfire, then cover it with dirt and dust. If you ignore the fire, it can cause grave damage to the property. Thus always take measures so that everything should not get burnt.
