- Aachen Firearms Range
Located on Golden Arrow Road, Aachen Range offers sportsmen the opportunity to try out that new pistol or rifle, zero in their favorite hunting rifle before the next hunting season, or a fun round of skeet or trap.
Aachen Range is divided into two sections the 200 meter range and the skeet and trap range.
The 200 meter range has 28 shooting lanes allowing the experienced shooter an opportunity to challenge themselves. Included in your daily range fee for the 200 meter range, MWR provides tables and chairs, hearing and eye protection, and targets and target frames. Shooters may shoot up to, but not including, .50 caliber weapons. Fully automatic weapons are not authorized at the 200 meter range.
MWR operates one skeet and trap range located beside the 200 meter range. Skeet and trap are a challenging and exciting way to spend time with friends and family. If you have never shot skeet or trap let one of our experienced range staff offer pointers and guidance so will be breaking clays in no time. Shooters are limited to 7.5, 8, and 9 shot game loads when shooting skeet and trap.

- Golden Eagle Archery Range
The archery range adjacent to the road to Heise Pond was built by archers for archers. With targets out to 40 yards, archers can challenge their accuracy and fine tune their skills. A metal tree stand gives bow hunters the opportunity to practice more realistic hunting challenges before taking to the woods. All we ask is that no broad heads are used on our targets. This range is open from sun up until sun down and is free of charge.
