The Dr. James E. Moore Jr. Camp Robinson Firing Range is 4 miles east of Mayflower, just north of Hwy. 89 on Camp Robinson Special Use Area. The range is open to the public 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Shooters must check in by 4:15 p.m. The range may be closed for state holidays, foul weather or special events such as Hunter Education classes. Please check the range calendar for availability.

The facility offers a 50-yard pistol range, a 200-yard rifle range, and skeet and trap ranges for shotgunners. All facilities are available for a small fee, which helps cover operating costs: rifle and pistol - $3 per person, skeet and trap - $4 per round of 25. Eye and ear protection are provided, and spotting scopes are available for a $2 rental.
