    I've often seen people camping with tents at campsites along Medix Grade Road. My question is: do you need a permit or any type of prior permission from the state to do this, or can anyone just pitch a tent wherever they feel like it?

    It's my understanding that you contact the forestry office for the area you are interested. I think that would be Moshannan State Forest and they issue you a permit. It's free and all you have to do is tell them the dates you want to camp there.

    I might have to take them up on that. Also, do you know if alcohol is allowed, or would you be fined if they caught you in possession of it there?
