Spring Valley Wildlife Area
Has anyone shot at the Spring Valley Shooting Range near Waynesville? What are your thoughts, how much does it cost, is it crowded?

Haven't shot at Spring Valley, but I hear it's pretty nice. I shoot at Delaware and it is also run by the state. They're closed on Monday and Tuesday, but the price can't be beat. You should be able to pick up a range permit anywhere you get your hunting license, it's twenty four dollars for the annual permit, or five for a one day. You can also purchase them on the ODNR website. If you're lucky enough to have time during the week, that's the best time to go. Delaware is a madhouse on the weekends, I'm sure Spring Valley is about the same.

I visited Spring Valley last week, what a great place for rifle shooters. They have thirteen rifle benches at 100 yards and ten at 50 yards. Five dollars per day or $24 for for a year. They supply cardboard backing for your target and clothes pins to hang it. They don't take payment at the range. You can buy it online or at any place that you can purchase fishing or hunting license. The benches are setup for right or left shooters. Ceasefires are frequent so some patience is required. Your license is good at any Ohio state shooting range. I was there during the week and talked to a few people that said that it gets very busy on weekends. The drawback is the pistol range, only four spots at fifteen yards. Overall I think it's a great deal. If you live in the Dayton area it is only thirty minutes away.
