Over 20 million people spend time target shooting annually. Target shooting has become one of the most popular and fastest growing recreational activity across the nation. Many of our lakes offer ranges for handguns, shotguns, rifles, muzzleloaders, and archery. Check out a lake near you for available shooting ranges.
Safety is for All Seasons. Check your local weather and lake conditions before you go. Always wear the proper safety equipment and make sure it works!
Seven lakes in the Kansas City District have off road vehicle areas available for the public. These off road vehicle areas provide opportunities for small vehicles like ATVs to large vehicles like UTVs and Jeeps. Not all areas offer the same opportunities so please double check the local rules and regulations. Check out a ORV area at a lake near you.
