    FL State Forest Carry

    I know this subject has been touched on before but I have yet to see anything definitive. I'd like to know if I can carry in a STATE forest and/or park (I have a CCW). Several people have posted links that deal with national forests but I have yet to see anything regarding state areas.

    Any help would be.........helpful!

    From the DA&CS Division of Licensing website

    Possession Restrictions

    The following is a list of places where you are restricted from carrying a weapon or firearm even if you have a license. Please note that this is a simplified list. The places marked by an asterisk (*) may have exceptions or additional restrictions. See Section 790.06 (12), Florida Statutes for a complete listing.

    o any place of nuisance as defined in s. 823.05
    o any police, sheriff, or highway patrol station
    o any detention facility, prison, or jail; any courthouse
    o any courtroom*
    o any polling place
    o any meeting of the governing body of a county, public school district, municipality, or special district
    o any meeting of the Legislature or a committee thereof
    o any school, college, or professional athletic event not related to firearms
    o any school administration building
    o any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption*
    o any elementary or secondary school facility
    o any area technical center
    o any college or university facility*
    o inside the passenger terminal and sterile area of any airport*

    STATE parks appear to be legal, but National Parks & Forests are prohibited by federal law.
