A lot of places there's legislated drinking requirements so I wouldn't try to hide it in a cup. If you are caught it's still gonna be an expensive ticket. Many government type campgrounds do not allow alcohol because of past problems with drunken idiots who have ruined it for others. Aren't all laws created because someone else was irresponsible?

In my state, alcohol is not allowed to be consumed in public places (including public campgrounds). A private campground may allow it but it's best to call and check rather than hide it or take the law into your own hands. Most private campgrounds I go to allow it and we've had beer, wine, hard liquor as desired. But we certainly control ourselves and everyone in our party because we try to be considerate to others who are there for their own enjoyment.

Rest assured if I am at a CG that doesn't allow it, and I find myself next to folks who are loud, raucous, drunk and not respectful of me and others for quiet time, I will definitely report it. Ain't right to be otherwise, as far as I'm concerned. Fortunately, I can turn off the need for alcohol when necessary and I do know others who can't. We just don't camp (or do much else) with that sort.

I've been to some that don't allow ANY drinking, even beer or wine, so they are out there.

Most private ones are okay for you to drink at your campsite but they may not like if you wander the campground with a drink in your hand. It's just about being responsible, being considerate of others (especially where kids are around) and having the common sense not to become a nuisance if drinking is allowed.

Maybe one of these days we'll meet in a campsite and we'll share some wine. Like my wife says, "We serve only the finest wine. Did you bring any?" If not, then we'll share some whine.

That's a good attitude garmp and have camped with people like you. Unfortunately, when others you don't want to inbibe see you, then that's when the trouble starts.

We have some camping friends where I have never seen the wife drink ANYTHING that does not have liquor in it. She was a former bartender and heavy drinking runs in her family. Generally, she has always been good except for one time she got out of hand and it was not pretty. I think her daughter's were very embarassed and it turned into a quiet night with everything breaking up early, but let's just all be careful and considerate out there. And if you are caught, deal with it nicely and righteously. I have seen it happen.

Hmmmm Silky1, not sure how to take that? Maybe I'm the friend, but I'll never tell nor admit it. I'm gonna step away so I can cut some cheese. Now if I can only find a box cutter for this wine container I have. "We serve no wine before..... HEY! It's time!"
