A clubhouse and containers are used to support a roofed area containing a gas BBQ and a selection of tables and chairs that are used for Saturday night communal dinners. There is a water tank which contains water suitable for cleaning purposes only

1 long drop toilet provides necessary facilities. Hot showers/flush toilets are available off-site , please discuss with the LERAA shooters who will guide you

Multiple camping sites are situated around the grounds. Firewood can be collected from the fence lines. Fires are allowed, but cannot be left unattended. Fire restrictions are to be observed.

The range has a covered shooting platform with typical SSAA shooting chairs and tables. We use this facility as a base throughout the event and conduct our shooting events on shooting mats at the front of the cover.
