East of St. Cloud – Highway 192 to left onto Pine Grove Road, Right onto Bass Highway to Midland to the Park entrance on the right. Wait in the Parking lot located at this north entrance to the park. We will be escorted to the shooting range at the youth camp area.
NOTE: Be aware that there is no firearms use in the park except for these scheduled 4-H activities at the designated location while 4-H certified shooting sports instructors are present. Osceola County does not allow the public to use firearms in the park. WE have special approval for our 4-H organized activities.
Bring chairs, water, and sunscreen. There is no water available at the site. Equipment is not required at this time.
If you want to visit the park at another time, there is also an entrance at the south end for hiking, biking and equestrian users. Enter off Old Melbourne Highway from Highway 192.
Youth can participate in both activities or only one each day, but need to pre-register. If you plan to attend both, you may want to bring a picnic lunch and water as there is not water available. We do have restroom facilities!!
Additional programs will be scheduled based on interest.
Certified 4-H Shooting Sports instructors are certified by the National 4-H Shooting Sports Program.
