    CCW in Florida state parks??

    Hello Gunnies,

    I'm visiting Florida (from Colorado) as I type. We plan to visit the Myakka River State Park tomorrow.

    I'm almost certain that CCW is permitted. Can anyone confirm that?

    Thanks..........

    Yes - state parks have been good to go for a while in Florida.

    +1 to what everyone else has posted.

    If you plan on travelling to Florida very often this might be a resource you will want to save and visit.

    I believe the only park that was off the list of approved places to carry was national parks, but now that that has changed, you're good to go most anywhere.

    There are to parts to carrying in state parks, though, which fall under Florida Statute 790.25 and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) rule 62D-2.014 and reading the Florida Firearms book, it's up to a test case as to which one wins. The DEP rule is more restrictive than 790.25, but it's really not bad and actually makes sense.

    Here's the main part of 62D-2.014:

    "Weapons shall at all times be in possession of a responsible party or properly secured within or to a vehicle or temporary housing, which shall include motor homes, travel trailers, recreational vehicles, campers, tents, or other enclosed structures, while in state parks. Properly secured means the weapon shall be locked away and not accessible to minors, and if in a tent means the weapon shall be secured in a locked container."

    Basically, if it's not on you, it's in a locked container so that kids and the like do not get into it.
