    Where ya camping? No, to my knowledge, there are no laws pertaining to Kentucky SPs.

    I just got back from OCing in the Gorge. I know it isn't a SP but no one said anything and I even saw another guy out there OCing.

    • County, municipal, or special district governing body meetings.
    • Meeting of governing body of a county, municipality, or special district.

    • Any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense beer or alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to that purpose.
    • Elementary or secondary school facilities (without the consent of school authorities).
    • Child-caring facilities, day care centers, or any certified family child care home.
    • Areas within an airport where restricted access is controlled by the inspection of persons or property.

    I asked this question of my state representative and actually had a state park ranger contact me and he said, carry in the state park was perfectly legal.
