Very nice facility. Very clean and well maintained. We used the Static Archery Range. We will use the trail ranges on our next visit. We didn't know you needed to wear hunters orange when on the trail ranges so couldn't use the trails this visit.

It's a very nice place to go hunting and too take ur kids fishing.. if there was some stuff that needs improving it would be to stay caught up on the grass mowing and weed eating... Other than that is a pretty nice place!!

My family and I love getting over there for a little fishing and to enjoy nature. They have a trail or two that's fun to walk and we definitely make our way over to hunt morels in the spring.
