Where can I find an archery range?

Keep your eye on the target! Bring your bows and arrows to the archery ranges, where you'll find bales for your targets. Use these practice areas to keep your bow-hunting skills sharp. Use the archery sites for free on a first-come, first-served basis. These are the only locations in the Milwaukee County Parks that allow the use of bows and arrows.

Hours of operation: Archery ranges are open during normal park hours. 6AM-10PM.

Due to the damage caused by the greater force of the bolt on the Park's standard bales, please bring your own bale and use the Parks bale as a secondary backstop.
