Firearms in National Parks

The law governing possession of firearms inside a national park changed on February 22, 2010.

Visitors may possess firearms within a national park unit provided they comply with federal, state, and local laws.

The role of the responsible gun owner is to know and obey the federal, state, and local laws appropriate to the park they are visiting.

Please remember that federal law prohibits firearms in certain park facilities and buildings. These places are marked with signs at public entrances.

Did You Know?

A park volunteer, dressed as an American soldier, helps orient visitors to what they are seeing.

Not all American soldiers during the Revolutionary War used dark blue uniforms trimmed with red. Some did, but a number of different colors were in use. Some of the German soldiers at the Battles of Saratoga also wore dark blue uniforms. Think it could be confusing sometimes?
