I know we are banned from National Parks, but what about National Forests?
Parks,,,, Forests,, Same thing.
Don't forget: monuments, battlefields, historic sites, seashores, rivers and trails.
A total of 84 million acres in every state and territory.
Not the same thing. Check with the National Forest office for the area you wish to fly. There are a lot of things I can do in a National Forest that I cannot do in a National Park.
I wish there was clear info on this. I just got talked to for flying at a local lake that is 5000' from my house. Army Corp of Engineers ranger. He is under the impression that anything federally ran was off limits.
I am not saying one way as I don't know.
I'm pretty sure they are not the same thing. The director of national parks put out the ban for the parks, but don't think he has any say so over the forest. But I haven't been able to find out anything where the National Forest Service director or administration has banned them.
(In designated areas of course) I can shoot my guns, light off fireworks, ride my dirt bike and ride mountain bikes in the National Forest but can't do any of those things in National Parks. I'd most certainly fly my quad in the NF as well! Just my .02
I realize this country can be very bureaucratic, but do you [really] think that National Forests are not under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service?
Parks and national forests aren't the same thing. Forests are open for recreational use.
So are parks.
National Forests are part of the US Forest Service, a division of the US Department of Agriculture.
National Parks are part of the US National Park Service, a division of the US Department of the Interior.
Right on target. Someone knows how to google. But we still don't know the definitive answer!
I doubt any NPS ban on flying would apply to USFS land.
