A bit different, yes.

Have a look at https://images.app.goo.gl/2qBV3P3R2wc7wmV27

The surface of the pitch is grass, but there is also a concrete slab in
place. You can see that the motorhome on the next site is parked on the
grass, but their awning is out over the slab, which is where they have
their table & chairs out. Sites in caravan parks may or may not have slabs,
& this is something that campers want to know about.

True, but they can also be wood burning such as:

Some caravan parks will only allow fires if they are off the ground, as
they don't want their grass burnt!

However, the key "openfire=" has never been extensively discussed, so

May be something that has to be done!
