Pala Range Directions

Many classes are held at the North County Shootist Association outdoor range in North County San Diego on the Pala Indian Reservation (very near the Pala Casino). From interstate 15 take State Highway 76 east. Turn left at stop light for the Pala Casino and Resort onto Pala Mission Road. Proceed east on Pala Mission Road until you come to Henderson Road (just past the mission). Turn left on to Henderson Road (Henderson is an unpaved road). Follow this road about 1/2 mile until you arrive at a double swinging metal gate. Stay on the dirt road and drive through a gate past a sign that reads "SHOOTERS DOWN RANGE". Continue on the dirt road until you come to the parking area. Match sign ups take place under the canopy.

If you're a GPS user the range entrance is located at 33.372425 North, 117.066321 West.
