Hey guys,here is something that I took straight out of the Texas wildlife department,tell me what you think.
TEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ORDER NO.98-001
Nothing in the public hunting lands proclamation or state parks proclamation prohibits a person from possessing a concealed handgun,loaded or unloaded,under the authority of a concealed handgun license issued by this state or any other state.Persons carrying concealed handguns must comply with all concealed handgun laws.
The exectuive director reserves the right to prohibit the carrying of all firearms during certain locations and certain eventsor in certain locations on department lands.
This order is issued pursuant to title 31,Texas administrative code,section59.134(f)(1) and 65.199 and is effective immediately. signed this the 8th day of july,1998 by Andrew Sansom,exectuive director texas parks and wildlife.
That should answer any questions about state parks. I carry it in my wallet with me at all times. sj

Thanks for the info, good to know that on my trips down there! I do believe that Oklahoma is similar to that.

however,
Senate bill 501 says that no state, county, or municpal gov't can prevent CHL on any state, county, or municpality owned property or buildings. This law trumped the state parks regulations.
Of course the above stated buildings do not include court buildings while court is in session, thats in a different part of the law.

bottom line, you can ccw into any state park grounds and buildings

edited to add: what I meant was the director can't impose regulations to prevent carrying like the park law states
