Your Simple Guide to Building a Campfire



Load up your truck's bed with firewood, hitch up your travel trailer and go camping this fall. With the powerful and tough Ford F-150, Ranger, and Super Duty, towing and hauling is the easy part â€”but building a fire can be more complicated. Luckily, with these simple steps from Ford, you'll be roasting marshmallows in no time. 

You'll need tinder, kindling, and fuel wood to start. When it comes to campfire styles, there are several options. Form a teepee with your wood, putting the smaller kindling inside, to build the Teepee Campfire style. The Log Cabin Campfire, which stacks the wood by two pieces on each row, will keep the campfire burning longer with less tending. If the night is windy, use the Lean-to method by leaning the pieces of wood on an upward angle toward one side. 

Remember to build the fire in ONLY designated areas and check with the campground on fire regulations. Make sure the fire is completely out and the embers are cool to the touch after extinguishing the fire with buckets of water.
