Today I came across a huge dump that has 1000's of bottles but is at a state park. This is the biggest dump I have ever found and the bottles at the surface appear to be from the 60's.

Any old beer cans in that dump, probably. Digging in any state Park can be risky. Penalties can vary greatly. Good Luck. LEON.

Yeah there are loads of Budweiser and other cans. There used to be quarrying activate there and when it stopped in the 20s people just tossed their thrash there but when it was made into a park it was all moved into the woods near the empty area.

Ugh I completely understand! This one dump I’ve found is on state park land also, a mountain bike trail runs right on the top and bottom of its hill. I did pick up a couple surface finds that were like literally right on or on the edge of the trail, and not at all buried, because, yknow, don’t want the bikes to get flat tires or anyone to get cut on the ‘trash’ ;)
I know all the good stuff’s down in the hill though, and I would so love to dig it! Obviously can’t and won’t but a girl can dream, right?

It doesn't stop me from scratching the surface. Bring trash bags, a wagon, and a kid and tell anyone who asks that you're cleaning up.
Add a few dirty, crunched aluminum cans to your list. If you find any goodies you can then top-off the bag with your "recyclables" for camouflage in case some badge-heavy park ranger insists on taking a peek into you garbage bag.

Park rangers have jurisdiction in all areas that constitute the regional parks system and can also perform law enforcement duties outside the park system. However once a camping tent is set up it is considered a dwelling and a search warrent is then needed.

Whenever i find good bottles, i always bring home ones i do not intend to keep. These i put in the recycling bin. This way i feel like i have accomplished what i wanted and payed back the spirit of the woods for what i was given that day. If i didn't i would feel no better than the thoughtless person who littered it in the first place.
