|ABOUT THE PARK|
|Sun Valley Shooting Park is a 300-acre outdoor shooting range near Yakima, Washington. We have covered rifle and pistol ranges, as well as 640 yard long range. |
Also, only available to members, a new Precision Rifle Shooting Range has been added to the existing long distance shooting area. This new area includes seven different firing lanes with steel targets from 200 yards to 640 yards. Each firing lane begins with its own barricade/shooting position.
We also host Archery, Trap, and Skeet Shooting. We allow pistols, rifles, and shotguns. We do not allow fully automatic weapons in the Park.
We do not provide firearms. Eye and ear protection is available for purchase. Targets are also available for purchase.

2016 looks like it is shaping up as the best year yet here at Sun Valley Shooting Park. Repairs and improvements are on-going on the pistol range, 100 yard rifle range, the long distance range (out to 630 yards) as well as the shooting bays. There are updates planned for our trap, skeet and duck tower shooting facilities coming this early Spring
Sun Valley Shooting Park has also developed a close working relationship with the Yakima County Sheriff’s Department, the Yakima Police Department and recently now the Moxee Police Department. These law enforcement entities use our facilities to train and certify law enforcement officers.
This year we increased our annual membership to $130 and remember, this is a family membership which includes children under the age of eighteen. A super great deal for any individual or family that is into the shooting sports. In addition, daily fee payers are able to shoot at our pistol and 100 yard ranges only. The long distance range and the bays are reserved for annual members. This makes an annual membership even better than it already is.
Also, we have much more work to be done around the park and the shooting areas. We are a non-profit and are not getting rich with the rates we charge. Harold, our Range Manager, and Keith, our Range Master, are very busy keeping the place in the great shape it is. However, they do not have all the tools and equipment needed to run a facility this size and our finances do not allow us to purchase the things we need. So, if you are fortunate enough to have some extra hand tools or power tools you no longer need or use, please think about donating them. Donations are deductible and we will provide you with a receipt.
Come out to take a look. Spend a day with us. You will have fun at a shooting park that is safe, well maintained and offers a wide variety of disciplines. And, please, don’t be afraid to ask questions or even ask for help. Everyone here is friendly and waiting to help create an enjoyable experience for you.
Due to the fact that we are a non-profit organization, things are expensive and we are looking to have some tools donated. If you have any of the tools listed below we would appreciate the donation (donations to the Park are tax-deductible and we will provide you with a receipt):
Two 6" Irwin Quick Grip adjustable hand clamps
Reciprocating saw (saws all)
3/8 power drill
100 ft extension cord
