Georgia State Parks - Park Rules and Regulations

Pulled this off the State Park's homepage. Looks like they've updated their rules to reflect HB 89 effective 1 July. Good News and I am glad to see them not try to avoid the bill. Some of the federally supported parks in GA still fall under federal laws and thus HB 89 does not help.


Georgia State Parks Weapons rules and regs.
