Archery RangeAdvanced 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. The range opens at 9 AM and closes at sunset, and it is free for visitors to use.
