I will be there in the next few days, and i was wondering if it is legal to carry my Beretta 92g while at the campsite. I could not find any answers. I do not have a CCW permit BTW.

I dont know squat about the place specifically, but if its NOT a state park, national monument, or wildlife refuge you should be good to go----- barring any local ordinances,

WHO runs/oversee's the land? Park Ranger? FS green truck? BLM? If you can answer that then you're 99% of the way to having the answer.....

i went to this site http://www.recreation.gov/detail.cfm?ID=31 and it says the managing partner is the Bureau of Reclamation Santa Barbara County Parks Department. so i am not sure.

Did you specifically ask if CCW was not allowed? A LOT of places say no firearms, but without it being specifically forbidden then its the equivilant of a city park's answer....so while true for most firearms a CCW'r would still be exempt from that one..........but again, that would be a CITY park, state parks are still a no-no.......


BUT OMG! Ya' just had to hit me with Bureau of Reclamation LOL! as I can honestly say I've never had to deal with them. Looking over thier site is about as helpful as concrete to a worm:cool:

going to actual link ya' gave AND THEN TO the actual site seems to say county park/recreation area; so this aint legal advice, use at your own peril; but I'd think you're covered under the exemption as the closest example I can give is Oroville Recreation area in which it IS ok to carry CCW............ YMMV

I love camping there. Too bad it's still "fire season", I always like to kill some time at the designated shooting area off of 154, 5 miles or so on East Camino Cielo Rd.. It's probably still closed with the weather being the way it is. Coldspring Tavern, Firestone Brewery, Solvang, etc., I wish I could head up there this weekend.
