Archery Ranges are Right on Target

by Ohio State Parks

Archery is a sport with broad appeal and ancient roots.  For many archers, bows and arrows conjure up exciting images of Ohio’s wild frontier days.  For others, archery recalls the romance of Sherwood Forest and courtly contests.  Strength is a plus, but more importantly, the sport requires graceful form, a steady eye and hand, and dead-on accuracy. 

For long-time archers and novices, alike, archery is experiencing a renaissance in Ohio State Parks.  Archery programs for kids are more popular than ever, as a new generation learns a timeless skill.  Grown-ups are eager to learn the sport, too.  Archers of all ages and skill levels can practice their sport at the new archery ranges at several of our state parks, including Barkcamp, Beaver Creek, Caesar Creek, Geneva, Hocking Hills, Hueston Woods, Paint Creek, Punderson, Salt Fork, Sycamore and Shawnee state parks.   All of these ranges offer bullseye targets at various distances, and most also feature archery trails with 3-D targets.
