Shooting Range at Little Pine SP
#1
The gun range at Little Pine State Park has been closed nearly two years for renovation. Yesterday I sent an email inquiring about the progress. Here is the reply:

Quote:Lycoming Supply has just set up their equipment to start the renovations. It will be a more ‘user friendly’ range with a pavilion, restroom, benches etc and ample parking as well as a pistol range and revamped rifle range. They hope to be done in the allotted 180 days so that puts us at just about October.

Thank you for your inquiry and happy shooting.!

This is the one up Waterville right?

Haven't been to that one in years. Never liked it. Always crowded, always cramped, always tripping over garbage, the range was always trashed, the street signs looked like cheese graters and it took forever to get there. I wound up joining at Tiadaghton Sportsman before I moved back to Clinton County. Nice and private, huge range, fairly cheap but it could get kinda windy though on the top of a mountain and this time of year that means your freezing your berries off.

Now, the range is in the back yard.

I'd be curious to see what they've done to the place but I know it won't be anything like what they've done in Scotia.

Yes, it is the one in Waterville.

If I get a chance next week, I'll drive down to see what's new.

I was going to go check it out today but the weather is not cooperating. I'm planning on going on friday morning now. I'll post some pics of the improvements after.

Went today, and they did a very nice job. New burms, new benches, new target stands, new bathroom facilities, and a very nice pavilion over the rifle benches. This is a 1000x improvement on what was there previously.

My camera decided to give me fits today so I only got a couple of phone pics.

There will be some more pics posted over on the poofa site if anyone is really interested.

I use to shoot at Pine Creek a lot before they closed it and will probably be going there quite a bit now that it is done. Anyone local should check it out it is very nice now.

Wowowow! MAJOR improvement indeed. Still a little cramped there though huh? Let's see how long it lasts before the roof of the pavilion matches the old street signs there too.

Thanks for the PiX and update.

That looks nice but is that target board on the far left the farthest downrange it goes? Doesn't even look 100 yards.

Ahh nvm I see they have some longer range berms to the left.


That's nice though for the rifle folks on the benches--you get some weather protection the pistol peeps don't have ;-)

I still think it's worth it to spend 25 bucks for a Tiadaghton Sportsman membership especially if you're just a shooter not a hunter. You'll need either the PGC's range permit or a hunting license to go to Little Pine and if I remember correctly the farthest range there is like 150yds. They have a 200 and 300 yard steel ringer set up just 5 miles past Waterville and it's more private.
