Well, that's how I feel about it, too. Don't give the authorities any reason to take a look at you, and they won't. But I also don't want them making a surprise visit to our site for some innocent random and perfectly legit reason, and seeing or smelling the booze. Because they have in the past, looking for a lost child or investigating an off-leash dog or something. For me, it's far easier to follow the rules than to deal with the consequences.
But this all started about ten or so years ago, when the parks branch finally got tired of all the alcohol fuelled shenanigans. Since then the number of incidences has dropped from dozens to a very small handful. The rest of the camping season, they leave you alone unless you cause problems.
