Range Reservation System
Des Moines County Conservation allows law enforcement agencies, and certain groups to reserve certain ranges on a limited basis.

Those reserving ranges must submit the online request by clicking the "Request Reservation" button on this page. All range reservations must be applied for at least 1 week in advance. There may be a fee for reservations.

With few exceptions, only one short range (25 & 50 yard) may be reserved at a time. One short range and one long (100 yd & 300 meter) range may be reserved simultaneously.

Upon approval, range reservations will be posted to the calendar on this website and reservation signs will be posted on the reserved ranges the day they are reserved.

All range users are expected to clean up after use.
