There are a lot of great places to stay while you visit. Many people stay for more than just one day of shooting. With so many things to do like canoeing, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and other great outdoor activities you will find it hard to leave Douglas County. Keep in mind, the VCPF is very secluded and all accommodations or attractions require some lengthy travel time.
If you have a camper, feel free to park on the range for free. Come self contained since we lack hookups. Otherwise, The closest hotel to the range is the Rockbridge Trout Ranch 30 minutes away.
