The Best Archery Ranges in and around Aurora, Colorado

What are the best archery ranges in Aurora, Colorado?

Aurora, Colorado, is a beautiful city located just outside of Denver. Home to the filming of the classic 1979 movie, “Over the Edge”, this busy town is nothing short of exciting.

While you may not be able to film a movie in this town, you are sure to find some great archery ranges to get your practice in! No matter what you are looking for in an archery range, Aurora, Colorado has a range for you.

To save you some time, I have put together this list of the best archery ranges in Aurora, Colorado. Some of the archery ranges are not exactly in Aurora but are in the surrounding areas in very close proximity.

Here is a quick snapshot of the ranges I will be speaking about today:

  1. No Limits Archery
  2. The Family Shooting Center at Cherry Creek State Park
  3. Empty Quiver Archery
  4. Bear Creek Archery
  5. Quick Draw Archery

No Limits Archery

While this range is not right in Aurora, Colorado, it is the range with the highest reviews on Google. For this reason, it’s at the top of my list for the Best Archery range in (Or around) Aurora, Colorado. Its exact location is here.

They are partnered with many popular bow brands, like PSE and Matthews. This shows that these high-quality brands trust them and want to be associated with them, and that says a lot to me.

They often have archery events, like 3D archery tournaments. They have an indoor range, featuring 38 lanes at 20 yards and 8 lanes at 30-40 yards.  The outdoor range has sight in bales out to 100 yards and during the spring and summer, they have a 20 target outdoor 3D range open during daylight hours.

If you or someone you know are just starting out or need some help after being out of practice for a while- they have on-site professionals that can help you.

They will help you find the right bow that works for you, as well as show you how to correctly use it and work with you to sharpen your skills.

This is a big one in my opinion because I know that when I first started out, I felt completely lost on whether or not I was using the right bow, if I was holding it right, etc.

They have archery leagues as well. They offer both a 3D archery league, as well as a Spot league.

Regarding hours, they are open 7 Days a week, with the specific hours as follows:

  • Monday – Friday 10am- 9pm
  • Saturday 8am- 5pm
  • Sunday 10am- 5pm

They are closed on major holidays and Sundays throughout the big game hunting season.

Reviews

My findings from Yelp Reviews said the following:

  • Very wide selection of bows to choose from
  • Has a great shop for working on your bow and accessories
  • The owners are great
  • Staff helped me fix equipment on my bow, super helpful.

The Family Shooting Center at Cherry Creek State Park

Located at 3800 S Parker Rd, Englewood, this archery range is open to the public and is perfect for families. It is conveniently located inside the state park, so it would be very easy for the entire family to plan a day of fun together. They currently have 3.5 stars on google.

They are a “full-service outdoor range” according to their website, and would be great to take the entire family in for some target practice. They have a 10-position, 50-yard archery range. Note that they encourage safety while in the range (as do I!) and require that eye and ear protection are required at all times.

They serve hot food on-site, as well as frozen custard during the warmer months to keep you cool.

It does not appear that they offer any trained professionals to help while you are at the range, at least none that are free. They do offer paid classes, however.

They have great hours- open 7 days a week! No matter the day, you have no excuse for why you can’t practice your archery form anymore!

Not including holidays or inclement weather, their current hours are:

  • Monday – Friday:  10:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Saturday: 9:00 am to 7:00 pm   /   Sunday: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
