LOGAN – The Cache Valley Public Shooting Range continues to grow in scope for area sportsmen. New to the facility this year is the shotgun building and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is holding an open house on May 11 for the public to show it off.

The new shotgun building at Cache Valley Public Shotting Range is a welcome addition to the DWR complex

The shooting range is located at 2851 W. 200 N. in Logan.

The Shooting Range Manager Steven Bassett said the old shotgun building had been in place for some 30 years and they felt like there was a need to be updated.

“The new building near the shotgun range is a welcome upgrade and provides more room for the public and shooting sports groups to mingle before or after shooting,” he said. “This new facility will provide a space for group meetings and Hunter Education classes as well, and brings a new feel to the shotgun range.”

The Cache Valley Public Shooting Range has become a popular all-encompassing facility. If it can be shot, there is a safe place to do it.

“In addition to the new shotgun building, people will also be able to check out the new outdoor archery range that was constructed last summer,” Bassett said. “It has targets set at 20, 30, 40 and 50 yards and includes the ability for visitors to shoot out to 100 yards. We hope everyone can make it out to the open house and can enjoy an afternoon of shooting sports in a safe, family-friendly environment.” 

The place is a indoor/outdoor facility that provides shooting sports opportunities for people in the northern part of Utah. Located at 2851 W. 200 North, also known as Valley View Highway 30 in Logan, this shooting range has a wide variety of amenities, including: 

  • A 100-, 200- and 300-yard rifle range
  • Trap shooting
  • Skeet shooting
  • Five-stand shooting 
  • 100-yard outdoor archery field 
  • 20-yard indoor archery range (which also offers cosmic archery, a glow-in-the dark shooting opportunity)
  • 60-foot indoor .22 caliber rifle range
  • 50-foot handgun range, with targets at 5, 10 or 16 yards
  • 25- and 50-yard outdoor ranges that are open to archery and firearms

The free open house will be held Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will provide an opportunity for the public to tour the new facility. As part of the open house event, visitors will receive free entry to the rifle, pistol and archery ranges on May 11, as well as discounted rounds on the shotgun ranges. 

The range is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2-7 p.m., Fridays from noon to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $6 for an adult day pass and $3 for a youth day pass (for those 15 and younger). Fees for trap and skeet rounds can be found on the DWR website.
