Dothan Eastgate Park Archery Range
The archery range is a public range open to everyone. All participants, ages 16 to 64 must have a State of Alabama Hunting or Heritage license. The archery range is open each day except for Wednesday during normal park hours. All shooters must sign in and out at the Eastgate Lodge. No broadhead points are allowed and users of the elevated platform must wear a full-body harness.
The range was developed through a partnership with the City of Dothan and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries; the Archery Trade Association; and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Federal Assistance. It has been host to the Alabama Recreation & Parks Association State Archery Tournament since 2013.
