I travel to national parks all the time and I bring my .38 with me in a case, packed in my bindle bag of clothes and misc camping stuff. At night, I bring that gun case into my tent and in all my years I have never had a problem with carrying in and on national forest service, national parks or state parks. I don't advertise it, I just bring it along.
Going into Canada with one is not going to work. If I was traveling through Canada, I would leave the gun at home and buy an extra can of bear spray.
This next week, I will be traveling through several national parks in Utah and Colorado and that same gun will be with my girl friend and I, camping all the way.
We also have bear spray at the ready and that would always be my first choice of defense. After the can runs empty and there still is a problem..... then the .38 would be a good backup.
Then again, I am a 62 year old balding fat guy who doesn't look like anyone who is looking for trouble.

The Forum removes the time and distance between like minded individuals. It is quite the communication tool. I give great thanks to the owners of the board.
