Q:

What is the average temperature of a campfire?

A:

In most instances, campfire temperatures generally average 1,571 degrees Fahrenheit. The average temperature of a campfire tends to vary based on the size of the campfire, with smaller campfires often producing less heat than larger ones.

There are generally three types of fuel an individual may use to construct a campfire, including tinder, or small pieces of wood that light easily and are generally thinner than a person's little finger; kindling, which is a material that is larger than tinder yet smaller than fuelwood; and fuelwood, or various types of timber. Certain issues can prevent the fire from properly lighting or reaching its ideal temperature, including wet or damp wood, wet weather, too little tinder, gusty wind and lack of oxygen.
