Spent one night in the RV on our way home. It was certainly a surprise that is way off the beaten path. It was truly back to nature with whole lot of gun ranges and beautiful scenery. Check out the website. Enjoyed the afternoon and night touring around in our jeep. Campworker came by, introduced himself and explained what to... More

We have stayed here 6 or 7 times over the last 5 years. We camped in a 5th wheel and now Class C motorhome, with 2 small dogs. First caution, last year a camper had a small dog snatched by a cougar within 20 feet of them. I have seen huge bears, one cougar, a coyote, all near the campground,... More

I have visited the Whittington Center on several occasions and stayed at the founder cabins during two different elk hunts. The gun ranges are well kept and the cabins were clean and a welcome place to stay after a day hunting elk.

Our family has been here quite a few times and for the State 4-H Shoot most of our team stays in the competitor housing. The price is in the $40 range per room. The rooms are comfy, but basic. Each house has a large common room with TV, three wings with a number of rooms and a kitchen per wing.... More

This is a nice little place to visit for gun enthusiasts. We only had a short amount of time so we were not fortunate enough to stay or to tour the entire property, but we did visit the museum (and gift shop). There is a collection of guns that is quite interesting, especially if you have the time to look... More

My husband visited the NRA Center and range and wanted to show it to me on our trip from Colorado. It is about 10 miles outside Raton, NM and when you hit the gates, it's about another seven miles in. It is 33,000 acres of rugged beauty! When he visited, he stayed in one of the Founder's Cabins, but he... More

If I had known how much we would have fallen in love with this place we would have stayed longer than two days. Whether you like to shoot or not - this place is fabulous - over 33 thousand acres - we have seen jack rabbits, mule deer, antelope and incredible scenery.

Met my brother here for fishing and shooting. We stayed in the competition housing and for forty four dollars a night, it can't be beat.

We stayed in the east campground in a travel trailer. The area is pet friendly, but has restrictions. Unfortunately, it did not appear that they were enforced. Before I could allow my dogs to come out of our truck to be hooked to their leashes and explore our site, I had to clean up over a dozen piles of dog... More
