The range includes a complete "Old West Town," which looks like a Hollywood set. It includes 15 buildings and nine shooting bays, making it popular among cowboy action shooters. A covered patio and a clubhouse adjacent to the old West town, provide shade for spectators.
Scattered throughout a pinyon-juniper woodland at North Springs are 50 3-D targets of North American game animals, including elk, deer, moose, javelina, turkey, and bear. A few 3-D targets of prehistoric Castle Country fauna also lurk in the woods, including the Utah Raptor dinosaur, made famous by its smaller cousin in Jurassic Park.
The range features dozens of covered benches and shooting bays to allow shooters to test their skills despite the weather.
For severely cold or windy days, windproof bays with space heaters are available. The range caters to pistol and long-range shooters alike, featuring one 600-yard range and another 1,000-yard range. Shorter-range shooters can select from 25-, 50- and 100-yard targets.
The range also includes a state-of-the-art facility for law enforcement training, featuring a S.W.A.T. building for forced entry tactical training. The range also offers a number of extras with turning targets, "running man" targets, bobbers, dueling trees, falling plates and pepper poppers.
The range has a main lodge with a lounge, meeting room, kitchen and restrooms, and 115 dry campsites on the property. In its phase II expansion, the range will include venues for shotgun, trap and skeet shooting, and for mountain man rendezvous.
The range is located south of Price off state Route 122, and is is open to the public from 9 a.m. until dusk Wednesday through Sunday. A day-pass for all firearms and static archery targets costs $5 per person. Kids under 16 shoot for free. An additional $10 fee is assessed for a day pass with the 3-D archery targets. Yearly, family and group rates are available.
