Legality of this? In backpack, open or concealed? Either loaded or unloaded with loaded mag nearby?

What is the law on something like this?

I'm not sure which park you're talking about and it doesn't matter anyway. Call the ranger station and ask. Just my blood alcohol content... .02

not sure about your county, but in LA, I have seen signs saying firearms are a no go there.

Yes, only at the Chabot Gun range.
