How was is ? I have not been there in a couple of years. I have been debating going back to do some longer range shooting with my bolt guns.

Whats the range like  ? Is the "only 3 rounds loaded in your gun" sign still up ?

Been a few months, but yes.  Still a mess despite the best efforts of the park folks, still the same restrictions, still the same fudpuckers you'd expect to see with the same disregard to the rest of us.

Distances up to 200yds.

But, things could have changed since the last time I'd been there......

It's a shame RE: the situation up there, but it doesn't bother me anymore.


I drive 3hrs to shoot in PA behind my parents house. Cleaner, better distance, more hospitable to us and less so to the fudpuckers...if they'd even consider driving back the 1mi of very rough dirt. (no, it's not an actual range, just family owned land)

Where at in PA? My family's farm is in Bedford County, a few miles across the Mason-Dixon, above
Flintstone (on I-68 on the way to Cumberland).

We could probably have a shoot up there one weekend, and I can't imagine that my parents or uncle
would mind as long as we policed up after ourselves.

And the neighbors could care less abt gunfire as long as we don't shoot one of their cows!

The sign is still up, and if the ranger is there and counts four shots, its an automatic $125.00 fine.

So I go to Westlance Arms range and pay the $10.00 range fee, for NRA members.

My parents live in PA too. York County (Red Lion) . Unfortunately there is not really enough land to get away with shooting anything other then airguns on their property

Figure 3/4 hour more up 99 past Bedford PA, up RT36, few back roads....home.  Shooting cows just means it's beef for dinner
I shoot back here: terraserver-usa.com/image.aspx?T=1&S=12&Z=17&X=859&Y=5639&W=3&qs=%7cCherry+Tree%7cPA%7c

Abandoned farm & fields/ rarely used gas well road, 4wd recommended.  I can get over 400yds if I use the road as a backstop or just a hair over 600 if I use the woods and am careful. There's a cutout "hole"  that can be used for pistols and short ranges, but usually so filled with trash and critters....kinda like sleepy creek.
But, no one goes back there during the weekend, no one shoots there except hunting season, kinda nice place to hide out for a few hours.
