Welcome to the Department of Natural Resources-staffed Rose Lake Shooting Range. You will notice continued improvements to our range. The renovations were funded by grants through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act, the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The handgun range features five covered, accessible stations where visitors can shoot their handguns at 10 yards.
