    Is it legal to carry in a state park?

    Yeah I wasn’t real clear. I was asking primarily about OK state parks. But I see with limitations it’s legal in national parks too. Thanks.

    Not 100% sure about OK State parks, but you might find more info on the website for the park you want to visit. National Parks go by whatever the state law is. I've OC'd at Mt. Rainier in WA. You just can't carry in the Federal buildings. I have carried in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.

    You can legally carry into Oklahoma State Parks, however you can not carry into the buildings used for business in those parks, like the office, reservation office, swimming pool buildings, or museum buildings.

    A little off topic specifically but... If you're a camper/RV'er just be aware that Army Corps of Engineer camp/RV parks are "posted" as Gun Free Zones. Emphasis on "posted" because I always assume every RV/Camper is packing more than hot dogs and beer.

    You would be correct in that assumption.
    Trump was working on getting that corrected.
