Local lawmaker calls for ban on walk ins at state parks

New Fairfield State Representative Patrick Callahan has been visiting Squantz Pond State Park the past few weekends to observe the crowds.   He says the overflow is disruptive to area businesses and neighborhoods.  He's been in contact with New Fairfield officials, law enforcement, park staff and state park management about walk in visitors.  He says they are creating a dangerous situation by parking illegally and walking along state roads.  The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has long maintained that they can't regulate walk ins.  Callahan says if reelected in November, he plans to pursue a legislative change next session.  In previous years, efforts have failed in the General Assembly to ban walk ins at state parks.
