This area's been a popular area with the youth for a long time, but only in the last few years has what we would call excessive consumption of alcohol become a real issue.

Until we get control of the running party that this has become in the past couple of summers, we'll be running some of that longer-term monitoring with our ranger staff.

Once we did this it would be a tremendous load on our rangers, be we didn't see any way around it. To not do anything was to invite, for some people, a disaster.

We just hope people will enjoy the beach and the water the way we intended for it.
