Privately-owned campgrounds give option on alcohol

  • Print

Dennis Crockatt isn’t urging partiers to invade Manitoba’s privately-owned campgrounds, but unlike provincial and national parks, they do allow campers over 18 to consume alcohol.


"We’re trying to let people know that they have freedom of choice," said Crockatt, pr esident of the Manitoba Association of Campgrounds and Parks.


Winnipeg West KOA is located on the Trans-Canada Highway near St. Francois Xavier. Assistant manager Paresh Ghedia said while the campground doesn’t sell alcohol, campers are allowed to drink inside their trailers, campers or tents.


Most campers abide by the rules, which include a 10 p.m. lights-out time, but Ghedia said there are exceptions.


"The odd time we have to tell people (about the rules)," he said.
