Housatonic Meadows State Park and Macedonia Brook State Park were the second set of parks in Connecticut to ban the 'devil's brew'. Unlike Black Rock State Park this was a slow transition. The Management for Housatonic Meadows and Macedonia Brook changed. Then everything began changing. Unknown mysterious, non-existing crimes began to happen. A whole big list of PROBLEMS (trumped up) began to develop that slowly led to prohibition. All trumped up. My delusional experience? I'd observe for several years how the management behaved as if an allergy to any alcohol. I WAS a volunteer semi-park Manager assistant that used to camp these parks most summers. They used to run 'during the weeks' using volunteers. You guess? Avid AA member?



This Park has been nearly empty since prohibition was enacted. As of 2009 $5 more for non-state residents ? Without them the place must be totally empty !!!! 2010--highest costs of any state in the USA !!!!
