But a State campground isn't National Forest...it's a bubble inside the National Forest. In National Forest you are ok to be armed, unless you ask then the answer is no.
In many eastern states you are not allowed to fire a gun in the National Forrests except on ranges or during hunting season. In VA you can not be armed in the National Forrests outside of hunting season, unless you have a CPP and are carrying a handgun. If I have my facts straight you can open carry in the cities, on private land (unless banned by the owner), in National Parks and Monuments, in restaurounts that serve alcohol but not in National Forrests. Something for the VCDL to work on next legislative session.
