Clark County Shooting Park--World's Largest Shooting Range?

Clark County Shooting Park

LAS VEGAS -- In Nevada, 178 acres of the Clark Country Shooting Park (CCSP) were recently added to the rolls of the state's public land, making what's claimed to be the world's largest shooting park.

"In 2002, Sen. Reid and Sen. Ensign, Rep. Gibbons (now Governor), and Rep. Berkley submitted a bill to transfer 2,900 acres of land to Clark County specifically for this shooting park," Turner said. "All of the shooters in Nevada appreciate their help, the great support from the Clark County Board of County Commissioners and our very dedicated 30-member Citizen Advisory Committee for allowing this facility to be realized. There can be no doubt that the CCSP is a community project with tremendous backing from the public."

The land grant at the shooting park includes:

  • Shotgun Center: This feature contains 24 combination Trap and Skeet fields, a 5,443-square-foot shotgun center with a reception area, a pro shop, shotgun storage lockers and a cafeteria. It also features 80 full-service RV sites, a clay target storage building, lit ranges and shade ramadas.
  • Public Rifle/Pistol Center: The Public Rifle/Pistol Center offers 30 shooting points up to 50 yards; 15 shooting points up to 200 yards; 15 points up to 100 yards, night lights, shade ramadas, concrete shooting tables, covered shooting areas, a 3,000-square-foot building with a convenience store, a reception area, a 30-seat classroom, restrooms and a pro shop.
  • Hunter Education Center: This 4,400-square-foot building contains three 30-seat classrooms expandable up to one 90-seat classroom, two offices for Nevada Department of Wildlife use, and restrooms. It also features night lighting, a 100-meter archery range with 10 positions, a 100-yard range with 10 positions and a 50-yard range with 20 positions. It will also contain a shotgun range and two walking field courses.
  • Archery Center: The Archery Center houses a known-distance archery range, covered firing points, classroom area, restrooms, and shade ramadas.
