Hello,

Does any one know about NC?
I heard today they are going to start cracking down on it here. Because some teenagers got alcohol poisoning and died.
Has any one else heard this? Most of my camping was in Ga, and Alabama. I think its still legal in those 2. I been back in NC 4 years now and never checked or been spoken too about it while camping. But then again, I camp in national forest like Uwharrie where you need 4x4 to get too.
If the kids are drinking, they obviously don't pay attention to rules. How is imposing more rules on the responsible adults going to effect what the unruly kids do? And we the people let it happen. Crack down on the kids and the kids parents. Maybe kids shouldn't be camping with out an adult present. I wouldn't let my 16 year old daughter go with out an adult. No matter how much she hates me for it. I wouldn't want her drunk in the woods with who know what guys. Whats this country coming to?

I know that the federal parks in PA allow drinking, but the state parks don't.

I have quietly sipped at an adult beverage (poored in a cup of course) at my state park campsite when the ranger comes around and he doesn't seem to mind.

1. I don't look a day over 35 (I am 32) so he didn't need to card me.
2. The STATION WAGON parked at my site "may" have given him the hint that I wasn't trouble.... he of course couldn't know the true purpose of the Shaggin Wagon!

I really think the "cracking down" comes when a park has troubles, or the camper in question with the beverage may cause problems if alcohol is involved.

We all know the type that roles into the campground with a patchwork tent held up by make-shift poles and a cooler with nothing but beer and steaks!!!! And I am not being mean.... I am a true Pennsyltucky girl. I can tell redneck jokes because I am one... I actually used a as child!!!

As long as people practice discretion... I think alcohol won't be a problem for them.

i have sat down with some camphoast and had a few while talking about camping and fishing.
it is all in how you act,and what you drink it in,if you get my meaning. there is no reason to act a fool,just be considerate of others and dont over endulge.

Default It depends on campground

I have camped in many campgrounds in Wisconsin and in Oklahoma depending on the campground depended on if alchohol was allowed or not. In Wisconsin in the State parks certain times in the year it is not allowed. Oklahoma never had an issue with having alchohol.l

I think that most campgrounds will "officially" outlaw drinking so that they have "grounds" to stand on when it becomes a problem.

Also, since it is officially "banned" -- people tend to be more discrete, and it doesn't actually become a problem.

Don't think for a moment that the 'officials' of the campground aren't fully aware of what's going on within the bounds of their park. They "live" there --- they know all the tricks --- they've seen it before --- they weren't born yesterday.

Nicely put!

bdean, is it to late for what? If you mean for a thread about your new rig, heck no. Everyone loves pics, feel free to post a thread about your setup with pics.

Thank you! But, it was last year -- and for the moment it is in winter storage. I didn't take pics for this purpose when I got it. So -- while it sounded like a good idea -- I may have to pass on the full photo/thread thing. My sig shows enough of the story.
