I did a search and could not find this topic covered already.

This seems like it is a similar situation to the airport. The rules writers know they can't restrict CCW in state parks, but post a rule in that regard anyway...

cut and pasted from here:
http://stateparks.utah.gov/reservations/park-rules.html
Firearms â€" Possession or use of firearms, traps or other devices capable of launching a projectile that can immobilize, injure or kill a person or animal, or damage property is prohibited unless the weapon or device is 1) unloaded and packed away to prevent its use, 2) being used by authorized enforcement officers in the performance of official duties.

Any ideas what the real scoop is here?

Thanks,

R651-612-1. Weapons Prohibited.
Possession or use of firearms, including air and gas powered types, traps and all other devices capable of launching a projectile which could immobilize, injure, or kill any person or animal or damage property are prohibited in the park system unless:

(1) The weapon or device is unloaded and cased or otherwise packed away to prevent its use in the park area.

(2) The weapon or device is being used for the legal pursuit of wildlife, see R651-614, or in accordance with UCA 53-5-701 Concealed Weapons Act.
(3) The weapon or device is being used by authorized enforcement officers in the performance of their official duties.
They don't quote the whole law... Much like how the airport was. It is Legal to carry in a state park, just not shoot. 53-5-701 refers to utahs state laws (76-10-500+)

Recreationally, that is. Shooting in self-defense is always justifiable, of course. :D
