Our Ranges

Fort Harmar has two range facilities, indoor and outdoor.
Our indoor range is located just outside the City of Marietta in the adjoining neighborhood of Oak Grove and is within a 7 minute drive of Historic Downtown Marietta. This facility has six bays and is used for pistols and .22 caliber rifles. Often, our members who are NRA Certified Basic Pistol Instructors or OPOTA Certified Pistol Instructors will use this facility to teach classes that will qualify you to apply for your concealed carry permit. Our clubhouse is also located at this facility.

Our outdoor range is located on Fifteen Mile Creek road and is about a 25 minute drive from Interstate 77 Exit 1 in Ohio. This facility includes a 425 yard rifle range, plus a pistol range with 7 separate bays of varying sizes, including a shoot house. All calibers of pistols, rifles, and shotguns can be used at this facility. Most of our matches and activities, including IDPA, GSSF, Women on Target will use this facility due to its large size and multiple bays.
