Stub Gray Shooting Range to Reopen for the Season on March 1st

The Stub Gray Shooting Range at Little Sioux Park near Correctionville, Iowa, will reopen Tuesday, March 1, at 9:00 a.m.  Users are reminded that the range will be open daily March 1 through December 31 each year, weather and site conditions permitting.  Staff may determine that the range be closed during rainy, stormy or muddy conditions.  Please try to reach park staff for verification.

The range will be closed during the winter months of January and February, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day each year.

Users are reminded that a permit is required to use the range.  Daily $10 permits can be purchased at the site and $50 Individual or Family Annual Permits can be purchased online through the Conservation Board website at  Shooters are also required to register at the check-in station.

The range reopened last August 29 following renovations after being closed 16 months due to vandalism and safety concerns.  Persons using the range since August have taken excellent care of the newly refurbished facility.  Volunteer Range Safety Officers will assist with answering questions, assist users with registration and permits and conduct general patrol of the area.  Plans for Spring 2016 include the installation of a vault latrine to provide a comfort station for visitors.
