Come on up here to Michigan, we are pretty close. Most of our state parks allow metal detecting. As do the local municipal and county beaches.

I'm sue if you asked enough bored desk-jockeys, that someone could dream up that it somehow harms earthworms or sandcrabs, in-some-way. But just as a question here among our own ranks : How does md'ing "harm nature" ?
I agree...

This park, though, for a State Park, is pretty easygoing about stuff (besides that one time I mentioned). The ONE thing that is the BIG RED FLAG during the summer anyway, is the NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES rule. That they take Uber Seriously!! Just last week I saw an officer sitting among the crowd with binoculars looking for beer. Lucky for me he only saw me holding my RC Cola.
