Indiana State Park- carry or not
Taking a group of kids I work with camping at an Indiana state park in a few weeks. I have a Utah permit, which is recognized by IN.
The state park website states...
"Any firearm, BB gun, air gun, CO2 gun, bow and arrow, or spear gun in possession in a state park must be unloaded or un-nocked and stored in a case or locked within a vehicle except when participating in an activity authorized by written permit."
However, according to handgunlaw.us....
Carry Allowed in these Areas:
No Carry Allowed in
“Fallsof the Ohio” State Park
Administrative Code 312 IAC 8-2-3
the park is not "falls of the Ohio."
So which is it?
I will call the park office if need be, but fully expect them to say its off limits (maybe it's cause I'm used to IL not allowing anything)

I just checked the DNR website and under "Rules and Regulations" it states:
◾Any firearm (except validly licensed handguns) BB gun, air gun, CO2 gun, bow and arrow, or spear gun in possession in a state park must be unloaded or un-nocked and stored in a case or locked within a vehicle, except when the owner is participating in an activity authorized by written permit.

Your reference left out 1 very important part of the regulation:

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

We take the kids we work with there every year, it is a great place. Highly recommend it.
Will be a little safer this year, we have run into some shady characters in years past there, but by in large, mostly good people too.
