No pit? No problem. When a prepared pit isn’t available, follow these important safety tips while building your own. Remember, DO NOT build a campfire if the campground, area or event rules prohibit them. Sometimes digging of pits may be prohibited due to archaeological or other concerns.
Clear a 10-foot-diameter area around the site. Remove any grass, twigs, leaves and firewood.
Dig a pit in the dirt, about a foot deep.
Circle the pit with rocks.
Your campfire pit is built and ready for building a campfire!
