So I had read that drones are outlawed in National Parks - and a few of us made the incorrect (I think) assumption that meant National Forests as well.


I can't confirm it on the National Forestry site - but from what I can see drones are actually allowed...

Can anyone confirm?

They are allowed, but not over wilderness areas and they also need to comply with the usual FAA rules and regulations associated with them.

I know it’s hard to prove a negative but do you have a link to where the ‘no drones allowed’ verbiage would be - if it were so?

Federally it would be under 36CFR for regulations however each forest can file Forest Orders to ban drones. Forest Orders should be posted at the individual ranger stations
