Archery Range at Antelope Island State Park
About the Archery Range
Antelope Island is one of the newest Utah state parks to feature an archery range, thanks to the funding efforts of the Friends of Antelope Island (FOAI). The total cost of the project was $62,500. Donations raised came from Davis County Tourism, local sponsors, and a matching grant from the Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant program. Participation from other State agencies include: the Division of Natural Resources (DNR), Wildlife Resources (DWR) and State Parks. Local sponsors include: Wilde Arrow, Beehive Wasatch Bowhunter, Hoyt Archery, Utah Archery Association and Easton Technical Products.
According to FOAI Project Coordinator, Randy Cook, it was a total collaborative effort. “Every donor saw the value of featuring an outdoor archery range in a safe, natural environment, such as Antelope Island.” The archery range will become an added feature for visitors touring the Island as well as provide an excellent venue for archery enthusiast and youth groups interested in learning archery, he said.
The range will consist of 12 walk-through designed target areas and several stationary targets offering distances from 20 to 100 yards. The site will also include a parking lot, restroom, day-use picnic/shade shelters, and an improved trailhead at the Gravel Pit trail. Target date of completion will be Spring 2023.
