Range Rules

Hurricane Florence Detour Info: Mullinix Road had a complete washout due to the storm, so that access is no longer available. People should detour onto Reservation Road off of NC Hwy 109 toward Badin Lake Recreation Area and Uwharrie Hunt Camp, then turn right on Moccasin Creek Road (FR 576) and drive for approximately four miles. The shooting range will be on the left side of the road.
