This includes possession of open containers or other illegal substances, public intoxication, lewd or inappropriate costumes, or otherwise disorderly conduct, among other things.
Following State Parks regulations, anyone found to be in possession of any alcoholic beverage outside of the designated area will be issued a $55 citation for Alcohol in a Non-Designated Area by the Natural Resources Police.
