State parks in Ohio are dry (no alcohol allowed at a)! A number of years ago we were being quite loud sitting around our roaring campfire with a full cooler of beer next to the fire, bottle of whiskey on the picnic table in plane sight and all the Ranger mentioned to us was to quiet down. They usually do not enforce the alcohol ban unless you are "out of control".
I hope we never see a fire ban in Ohio, that would be BAD.
So far we have only camped at two campgrounds with a fire ban, one being in the Grand Tetons out west (I can understand that one) and the other being Fort Wilderness at Disney. Of course at both places we were so busy sight seeing we never had time for a fire.
