I'm from florida and according to packing.org NC has receprocity with FL on CCW. question though can I carry in the Cherokee National Forrest? they just had a bear attack that killed a 6 yld on the tennesse side of the forrest.  people tried to fend it off with sticks and rocks. I ain't fending off a bear with a stick. I was thinking more like 200 grn bullets.

From what I remember NO>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> A friend had his pistol confiscated  there. He got it back eventually. That is FEDERAL land and goes by Federal laws. No firearms from what I can remember. I really wish Im wrong for you. Good luck WarDawg

From packing.org FAQ this morning:

Carry concealed weapons on Federal Property
Q: Carry In National Forest
A: If you can legally carry in the state the National Forest is in you can carry in the National Forest. You can not carry into any buildings on the National Forest as they are owned by the Federal Government.

However I would expect signage to prohibit firearms...the state parks have it for the most part.  I have heard open carry in Uwharrie was legal outside of hunting season so long as it was .22...but I may have dreamed that

Upon further investigation:

Are firearms allowed?
Use, possession or transportation of firearms, bow & arrows and other arms or ammunition are prohibited, except during designated hunting seasons.  While possessing a firearm for the purpose of hunting you must have a valid state hunting license in your possession for the species you intend to hunt.  The firearm possessed must be of the type legal for hunting the species that are in season.  Firearms must be unloaded during transport.  While camping firearms must remain in camp except during legal hunting hours.

SOL, bro
