Public Shooting Ranges

For your shooting enjoyment and to make you a better hunter, the Game Commission maintains public shooting ranges across the state. Those who shoot firearms at one of the Pennsylvania Game Commission's state game lands public shooting ranges must possess and carry with them either an annual $30 range use permit or a current general hunting or furtaker license. Individuals without a range use permit or hunting or furtaker license may be fined.
Unless otherwise posted, these ranges are open year-round, from 8 a.m. until sunset, Monday through Saturday, and noon to sunset on Sundays. Please contact the appropriate Region Office to check the daily status of ranges you wish to visit.
Before you visit, please review the Shooting Range Regulations and Prohibited Acts.
Shooters should show consideration for others waiting for an open bench. It is common, especially leading up to the bear and deer seasons, to find an adult teaching a youngster how to shoot, or to find someone having difficulty sighting-in a rifle. Please be patient in such circumstances, and if it seems appropriate, offer assistance. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by someone 18 or older.
The Game Commission has completed lead remediation and safety upgrade projects at all public shooting ranges. Routine maintenance, including rebuilding target-line stations, cutting grass and other clean-up activities, often required the closure of ranges for several hours every month. More than $200,000 is spent annually on shooting range maintenance. To help keep costs down, and allow these funds to be diverted to other projects and programs, users should:

  • Avoid shooting up the framework used to hold the backstop material and
  • Clean up spent cases, remove targets from backstops, keep shooting benches clean and dispose of all other litter.
Groups may reserve ranges from January 1 through October 1 by calling the Region Office at least 20 days in advance. The range is closed to other individuals when it is reserved.
