Shelton Point Shooting Range

The Big Piney Ranger District is located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, where visitors can view picturesque rock bluffs and hike wooded hillsides.

The Shelton Point Shooting Range is a great place to shoot firearms recreationally, or sight your weapon prior to one of Arkansas' legal game seasons. The shooting range is located off Arkansas Highway 7, a national forest scenic byway.

One range is available with 5 shooting stations offering backstops at 25, 50 and 100 yards long for pistol and rifle use. Visitors should bring their own targets and tacks to attach the target to the backstops. It is highly recommended that visitors bring the appropriate safety equipment, such as hearing and eye protection. This range is not designed for skeet shooting.

Please help keep this area open and clean by disposing of used targets and shell casings properly. This is a pack-it-in, pack-it-out facility and does not have on-site garbage  collection.
