Visitors to Land Between The Lakes can practice target shooting for Free at the Golden Pond Target Range off of US68/KY 80. Targets are not provided. Possession of alcohol is not permitted.
The accessible rifle, pistol and archery ranges are open from dawn to dusk on a first-come, first-served basis with capacity for multiple shooters.
Our last improvements to the target range were made possible through a National Rifle Association grant and through generous donations from individuals and businesses through the Friends of Land Between The Lakes.
Read Supervisors Orders for information about firearms. No explosive targets.
The Range is CLOSED from 8am-11am every Wednesday for cleaning. Range regulations are posted at the site. Be sure to dispose of all trash and spent shells in the dumpster just outside the area. “Pack It In & Pack It Out!” Help keep your public lands free of litter by packing out all your trash and properly disposing of it.
