I was of the belief that the park rangers in Maryland were pretty much don't ask don't tell until this year. My wife and I frequent several Maryland State Park Campgrounds and we are usually traveling with our 2 children. Once earlier this camping season while at the Cunningham Falls State Park the ranger came around visiting the campsites in our loop to "check in" with us and to inform us of some new rule changes for this season. It was very obvious with the effort that the ranger was putting into try to see in my wife's solo cup that he was "fishing" for alcohol use. Then this past weekend while camping with 2 other families at Swallow Falls State Park the ranger came around to "check in" again and this time he shook us down about what was in our cups and then he wanted to see inside of our cooler to check for alcohol. We were there with our families and were far from being noisy and none of us were a nusiance or falling down drunk. I know that the rules are the rules and what not, but I am afraid that this aggressive level of enforcement is going to cause myself and others to stop using the Maryland State Parks. I send this out just as an FYI for anyone that frequents the Maryland Parks so that you are not caught off guard or lured into a false sense of security that they are only passively enforcing this law.
