    I have been camping in state parks along the east coast for several years and I have never encountered a more disrespectful and rude group of authority figures than the park rangers at Falls Lake. Let me say that I was never cited, warned, or “scolded” by the rangers during my 4 day 3 night stay however I witnessed how several campers in surrounding sites were treated. For example…On a Friday afternoon a family with two or three adjacent campsites is arriving and unloading gear. Along comes Ranger #1 yelling at them, “Keep them between the timbers”. The confused members of the family look around to make sure he’s yelling at them and then proceed to walk into the empty road to see what the problem is. As if he’s intimidated by the elementary school children, their mothers, or the dads coming to get an understanding of the problem the ranger approaches the group with his hand on his pistol. He then goes on a rant about how the third vehicle needs to be moved from the site immediately and that he doesn’t care about them unloading the minivan, it needs to be kept “between the timbers”.On the otherside of our site a man was packing up his truck to leave the campground on the last day. The site is packed up and his elderly yellow lab is sitting next to the truck waiting to be put in the back when a different ranger stops his truck, jumps out, and says in an angry tone “This is the third time I’ve told you”. The guy is confused as he hadn’t been told anything the entire weekend by any of the rangers. Then the ranger demands his identification immediately and then begins a 15 minute ticket writing process in which he would walk between his truck and the campsite several times clearly stalling the camper who just wanted to go home. He was then fined $100+ dollars and given a court date as part of the “dog off leash” misdemeanor. The camping trip felt more like a prison with the Rangers playing the role of guards, driving through the campsites late at night. Letting the engines run next to your tent while you try to sleep so they can walk around to campfires inspecting cups, coolers and dog leashes. I will never return to camp at Falls Lake and will certainly warn others about doing the same.

    I’ve visited Falls Lake (Beaverdam Access Area) a couple of times with my kids during the summer. The area has potential but they have got to do a better job controlling the geese. They graze grass throughout the recreational area and leave their poop all over the place. So as I’m in the water with my two year old, I’m looking at all the bird poop in the water wondering how much of a health risk she’s being exposed to. Often, these beaches are closed because of health risks due to high bacteria counts. The state should definitely do more to control the geese population on these beaches.
