A friend (who holds a CHL) asked me about carrying on or around Corp of Engineer property near Lake Norfork.

Any one know the legalities involved?

If it is a Federal Parkland, go for it.

If it is a state park, this group might help you better than I can.

If it is a Federal Installation, DONT do it.

Fish and Game in Arkansas Online might have more specifics.

Hunting is allowed on the government-owned lands around the lake. I would assume concealed carry is allowed, but I will try to find more about it.

However, I vacationed at Cotter at the end of May. I fished below the dam, and when I pulled up at the entrance to the recreation area, there was a big "No Firearms Allowed" (or something like that) sign to greet me. I was assuming this was only at this recreation area. There are government-owned buildings below the dam such as the hatchery which would be against the law to carry in.

Corps of Engineer land is off limits.

Federal Installations (military bases) are governed by the commander of the base.

U.S Forest service land is good to go.

U.S National Parks will be good to go in Feb. 09

State parks...certain buildings are a no go.

Looks like a no-go. :(
