South Dakota Shooting Sports Complex


The Game, Fish and Parks South Dakota Shooting Sports Complex aims to be the premier firearms range complex in the region. Four-hundred acres of rolling topography offer the perfect site for sporting enthusiasts within minutes of several surrounding communities. Organized in two separate areas (north and south), the complex offers a wide variety of options for all levels, from hunters and recreational shooters to law enforcement training spaces.

Designed with safety in mind, the range complex will offer the general public, families, first-time gun owners, youth groups, competitive shooters, and many others a world-class opportunity to participate in multiple shooting sports. There is plenty of room for beginners and experts to shoot side by side with facilities for education, outreach, and organized shooting competitions. The Shooting Sports Complex is a celebration of South Dakota’s outdoor heritage and an invitation to what lies ahead for the recruitment, retention, and reactivation of shooting sports statewide.

We expect thousands of people to visit and utilize this shooting sports complex annually from South Dakota and across the nation. With your donation to support this project, they will all see your name displayed throughout the complex. This project is a legacy project for Governor Kristi Noem, and recognition of your support will last for generations to come.
