Outdoor Shooting Range open for business

By Reader Staff

The Sandpoint Parks and Recreation Department on May 2 reopened the public outdoor shooting range on Baldy Mountain Road.

Department officials said they are instituting additional procedures to help meet social distancing requirements. The range is reserved for seniors and vulnerable individuals from 10 a.m.-noon. There is also a limit of 10 people inside the range, with a maximum of eight shooters. The range will not be loaning spotting scopes, bags, and eye or ear protection — range attendants ask that shooters supply their own. 

The range is located four miles west of Sandpoint on Baldy Mountain Road at 113 Turtle Rock Road. A day pass is $5, and season passes are available with a current Bonner County Sportsman Association card for $20, or $70 for non-members. Google Sandpoint Parks and Recreation and click the “shooting range” link to find current hours of operation, as they vary day to day.
