    Non-res, CA campsite carry?

    I may be doing some camping this year in California. As a non-resident can I carry a handgun concealed at a campsite? I quoted this from the CA code:

    "(l) Nothing in this section shall prevent any person from having a loaded weapon, if it is otherwise lawful, at his or her place of residence, including any temporary residence or campsite"

    I didnt see mention of concealed, is anyone familiar with this code?

    Are there any other codes/laws I should be familiar with that may pertain to carrying a concealed handgun at a campsite?

    Thanks for any help!

    Campsite carry is legal in CA, open or concealed

    You have quoted the section of the CA law that covers carry at a campsite, hotel room, or other temporary residence. It covers any person, CA resident or otherwise.

    I would recommend concealed carry instead of open, however. Someone else who is not aware of this law may see you and report you if you carry openly, and who wants the possible hassle?

    if i remember correctly, you can carry at a camp site. The only thing is, if it is at a National Park, then ALL firearms are required to be unloaded and locked up.
