  • I was at the range today. An old man put a pistol behind the line on a seat bench. The range officer told him it had to have an open action. He picked it up pointed it at another shooter and opened th...  more »
  • This rating describes only the public outdoor shooting range. Here everyone can (-woman) without a license or the like (brought) handguns, rifles, bow and arrow, etc. to shoot with. The entrance fee is only $3 per person, the range is open from 7:00 up to 18:00 (Mon, Tue 10:00). Ranger lead supervision. Ammunition must be brought also, ear and eye protection do.

  • Large area to drive thru. We picked up a map at the entrance but it wasn't very helpful. We drove the paved road and saw 1 alligator on the side of the lake. Tried the dirt roads and saw nothing but t...  more »

  • This is a beautiful spot. During hunting the RV area looks a tad full and has a touch of the redneck Riviera going for it, which is just fine but I'm letting you know. The lake is why I go, no gas motors on it, multiple boat ramps. It's huge and it's awesome. They also have a shooting range and hunting area.
  • This place is awesome! I try to go on a week day, because the weekends tend to be a tad overcrowded! In order to shoot on the 200 yard lane, you must qualify at 100 yards first and hit 3 of 5 shots in a 6 inch group. I have included an example from when I qualified recently. Good idea on their part! Bullets at one point were flying over the backstop and almost seriously injuring/killing someone. I hear people complaining about this. But seriously... If you cannot shoot a group at 100 yards within six inches, you have no business shooting on the 200 yard lane! The Range Safety Officers out there are awesome!
  • A Great No Nonsense Outdoor Range and Hunting Preserve. Ranges are monitored by Range Safety Officers. Hunting area is supervised by staff knowledgeable in hunting regulations and seasons.
  • Wonderful place. People are friendly and helpful. No water or power, but town is close. Cell service seems good as well.
  • Oh i really enjoy going shooting here! To be honest I used to be scared of gun ranges like this, but the staff seems attentive and help those who need it. They take their job of keeping people safe very seriously. If course every now and then you see some crackpot who has a gun they probably shouldn't have and seem pretty unsafe about using it. That's when I leave, my nerves can't handle it, but over all very good.
