Archery Range

Open 9:00 a.m. to sunset; no charge.

The SC Department of Natural Resources completed an archery range within the campground area at Lynches River County Park in December 2010.

Advanced archers have the opportunity to shoot targets at various distances from 20 to 50 yards on the flat range with a beginner (or youth range) available as well. Bows with a draw weight of 30 pounds or less are required on the beginner range. Bow hunters and other archers also have a 15 foot elevated platform where they can practice shooting. The tower provides a safe platform for archers to shoot at targets at varying distances in a realistic wooded hunting setting. The targets range from 10 to 40 yards in the wooded area beside the archery tower.

With safety being a priority for all users, archers should be aware that broadhead points are not allowed on any portion of the range and a fall restraint harness is required when using the tower.

The range is not staffed and participants must bring their own equipment. No license or permit is required; however, participants under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult 21 or over.
