Hunting at State Parks

Some state parks are open to hunting. However, parks vary on types of game that can be taken.

There are 23 state parks open to all hunting, with 6 parks limited to specific types of hunting, and 15 parks where hunting is prohibited. View the table below to learn more about hunting opportunities in parks.

All hunting within state parks must comply with Utah law, federal law, DWR rules, and all county and city ordinances regulating hunting, weapons, and shooting. The state park property boundaries can be found on the Utah Hunt Planner on the DWR website along with hunting rules.

Firearms or dangerous weapons may not be discharged from an automobile or other vehicles, roads, public utility facilities, railroad equipment, campsites, park buildings, picnic sites, overlooks, golf courses, boat ramps, or developed beaches. They also cannot be discharged within 600-feet of a house, dwelling, or other building – including barn, corral, or stockyard.
