El Dorado State Park Shooting Range
The range is managed by the Friends Of El Dorado Shooting Range, a non-profit group comprised of community members who volunteer their time and services to support the enhancement of the shooting range.
El Dorado State Park Shooting Range is funded by hunters, gun owners, and everyone who purchases hunting and fishing licenses. The money available to support these comes from the 11% excise tax on the sale of all guns, ammo, and bow/arrow sales and the revenue generated from hunting and fishing licenses. After it is built, the general operation of it falls on the local volunteer group, a nonprofit, who takes care of all the operational costs. This gun range is the work of hundreds of hours of local volunteers over the years, and it will stay open because of these volunteers. It is the perfect model of what true private and public partnerships should look like.
