My friend and I are co defendants. We have not been charged or convicted yet. Ate we allowed to be around each other? We were in a federal park charged with trespass and possession of stolen property.

Merely being charged does not require you to stay away from each other. But if the court had ordered you not to associate with one another, you must follow that order.
Being charged also does not erase any other legal restrictions on your movements, or those of your co-defendant. If either of you is on probation or parole in another case, he must obey the terms of his release -- including any that would prevent the two of you from associating. You also must both still obey any injunctions, restraining orders, etc. that may be in place, whether they are related to this case or not.
