Camping just isn’t the same without a campfire. In some circumstances, a campfire is necessary for warmth or cooking. So what do you do if you need to get a fire going and it has recently rained? Finding dry firewood in wet conditions is possible, it just takes a little extra effort.

Where to Build
Don’t feel defeated if you get up and find your camping trip has been rained on. You can build a great fire even if it seems all the wood is wet! If you’re at a campsite where you can’t just go scavenge in the woods for your own wood, remember that many people tend to sell firewood near campgrounds. Look for a roadside stand that has the wood under a shelter and has the pile wrapped in plastic. If all else fails, you can always turn on your RV's stove to make these delicious Skillet Fried Tacos.
