Default Best Times To go

On a trip to the South Store back in February I had the opportunity to spend the night and visit the CMP Marksmanship Park the next day. Given that it was winter time the crowd was pretty small.

The family and I want to make another trip or two over the summer. Do it get pretty crowed in the summer time? I would assume the weekends are the most busy? Just looking for input.

Thank you!

Ed

Any time is a good time, they always have room.
Unless they have a large match that will close the park to non-competitors.
It's best to call before, they have neglected to put some things on the calendar. Small matches they tend to split the range

Do they close the range prior to an event? Or just the dates they state it is closed?

Also, I see rates for the ranges with the exception of Range 5, is it not open to the public?

They will post the days closed on the calendar, usually only during a large event. But definitely call first

Range 5 is for pistol competitions -- IDPA, steel challenge and 3 gun(?)

The times I have gone, I have gotten there when they open. Never an issue. Just call a day or so ahead and make sure they are not shooting a match.

Actually the best times for me are when they're closed. They're closed Monday and Tuesday.

I have closer ranges, so I haven't been back to Talladega in 18mos or so. I hope to make the next Talladega 600.
They also significantly raised fee's too. Not as attractive as when they first opened.

Anyone that brings a new shooter will receive $5.00 off their range pass for an entire day

Range fees are $10 per person for 1 hour. Or $30 per person for an entire day

Not sure about "significantly raised fee's" when it was $25 per day

I haven't notice a significant fee increase myself. I Just wish I lived across the road from it!
