Drones/UAV's are not allowed at Pilot Mountain State Park

We are having increasing issues with visitors launching drones. Drones disturb wildlife, other visitors, and can be a hazard to low flying aircraft.
Drones are regulated as RC flying machines in a state park and are not legal to be launched from state park property, or from the adjacent state road and highway outside the gate.
Launching a drone without a special activity permit is a Class 3 misdemeanor.  Permits are only granted to cooperating agencies for the purposes of search and rescue or scientific research.
