We only made the museum. Would love to go back and shoot. Museum has a lot of guns and a lot of info. A must do for gun enthusiasts and NRA members.

Stayed for 3 days during a recent visit to the area. Wish I had longer. Marksmen have ample opportunities to shoot. Over a dozen ranges. Lodging is clean if Spartan. Great for a large group. Lots of fauna to watch in the morning and evening.
