Md. Parks Clamp Down on Alcohol Use
Maryland state park managers are cracking down on alcohol consumption, The Associated Press reported.
The Department of Natural Resources says it is phasing in rules that will prohibit alcohol consumption this spring and summer except in campgrounds, shelters and full-service cabins where users have a reservation or a $35 permit.
Starting Nov. 1, drinking will be permitted with a permit only at full-service cabins and at shelters.
The agency says the new rules are designed to increase safety and bring the state’s alcohol policy in line with those in neighboring states.
