This was the best site I'd visited in the past two (2) years. Outstanding facilities. I used one on the RV sites for the trip. The ranges are wonderfully maintained and the staff very accommodating. I have a return trip planned for October 2018.

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.

I'm not an NRA member or gun enthusiast, but I though the free museum was well worth a stop. The quantity and quality of exhibits along with the interpretive information can be quite interesting.
