Alcohol ban at Md. campsites reversed
Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says it is reversing a ban on alcoholic beverages at state forest campsites.
DNR Secretary John Griffin cited citizen complaints about the ban, which was implemented in November with little public notice.
Much of the criticism came from outfitters, beverage retailers and other tourism-related businesses in western Maryland. The two westernmost counties, Allegany and Garrett, are home to 83 percent of state-owned woodlands.
Griffin says a prohibition on alcohol in Maryland state parks will remain in effect.
