Free admission to Canada’s national parks is expected to draw far more visitors this year, so users should be aware of some restrictions in Banff National Park areas in Alberta, the Calgary Herald reported.

Even though fees have been waived for 2017, anyone stopping in a national park still needs to exhibit a pass on their vehicle.

To keep a lid on late-night revelry, Banff has a ban on campfires and alcohol consumption between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily in eight areas. The prohibition is in effect from April 1 until March 31.

The order is quite clear what the consequences may be for scofflaws: immediate cancellation of camping permits, eviction from the campground or charges.

The summer long weekend alcohol ban brought in a number of years ago will continue at a number of campgrounds in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay national parks.
