    Default Blue Marsh Lake, Berks County

    I was just reading their rules and regs on firearms found here.

    Guess they need a letter sent, but I'm not sure as it seems to be part of the Army Corps of Engineers.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Preemption does not apply to federal government property.

    Note the last statement.

    I don't know neighbor. I searched the web and found info on Gifford Pinchot St Park from the DCNR. I would think that the DCNR rules should be the same as the PA Fish and Game.

    Ken

    From a DCNR web site . . .
    “Gifford Pinchot State Park, a 2,338-acre full service park, is in northern York County along PA 177 between the towns of Rossville and Lewisberry. The park consists of reverting farm fields and wooded hillsides with the 340-acre Pinchot Lake serving as a prime attraction.
    Use extreme caution with firearms at all times. Other visitors use the park during hunting seasons. Firearms and archery equipment used for hunting may be uncased and ready for use only in authorized hunting areas during hunting seasons. In areas not open to hunting or during non-hunting seasons, firearms and archery equipment shall be kept in the owner's car, trailer or leased campsite. The only exception is that law enforcement officers and individuals with a valid Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms may carry said firearm concealed on their person while they are within the park. “

    It is an ACES site and that is their rule. ACE was not affected by the law that was passed about National Parks. Naturally they don't care about state law either.

    Yes, Army Corp of Engineers.
    Unlike National Parks, hunting is allowed just as it is on military reservations, but that's about it.
