I disagree about the red solo cups.  I know what you’re saying, but it’s all we use at a campsite.  Even the kids drink their milk and gatorade from solo cups. 

(Most) Georgia State Parks have an "alcohol prohibited in public areas of the park" rule.  My main concern is whether they consider my campsite a public area or not.  I would argue that it’s not a public area since I’ve rented it from them, but they could also argue that the whole park is a public area inasmuch as it’s funded with state funds.  If that were the case, I’d think they’d work the prohibition to state that alcohol is not allowed in the park at all.

Either way, I think GA Rangers think like the consensus above; as long as you’re responsible, they tend not to bother you in the campsite.

Heck if it’s real bad… fill an empty pop can with your favorite brew …  Then you can walk all over town as well …  8)

Did the pop can trick back in College and walked all over town sippin’ beer …lol   

In Ontario all Provincial, Conservation Area and St.Lawrence Parks Commission  Parks are "dry" on long weekends as well as the first 3 weeks of May, a couple of them are "dry" until mid June …  As long as your discrete, don’t get loud, you’ll have few problems…  if your using those red solo cups, you’ll get spoken to as the Rangers know what’s in them …

My in-laws used to camp with the family when they were younger.  My husband tells me they used to sneak "A" beer each on Saturday night.
