Stub Gray Shooting Range Reopens for the Season

The Stub Gray Shooting Range at Little Sioux Park near Correctionville, Iowa, has reopened for the season following a short delay due to wet conditions. The range is typically open daily March 1 through December 31 each year, weather and site conditions permitting, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, and Christmas Day.  At any time, staff may determine that the range be closed during rainy, stormy or muddy conditions.  Please check with park staff for verification.


Users are reminded that a daily or annual use 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 www.woodburyparks.org.  Shooters are also required to register at the check-in station.

Cabins To Remain Open Year Round

The cabins at Snyder Bend Park and Southwood Conservation Area will now be available for rental throughout the fall and winter seasons. The Woodbury County Conservation Board decided at their November meeting to keep the cabins at these two parks open due to numerous requests from citizens wishing to use them during the off season for hunting and fishing trips or family gatherings.  The cabins at Little Sioux Park will remain closed November 1st through April 30th as usual.

Rental reservations are taken online at http://www.woodburyparks.org/cabins. If you have any questions, please contact the Woodbury County Conservation Board office at (712) 258-0838.
