    I'm headed to the Steamboat Rock State Park at Banks Lake this coming weekend with my oldest son and a few friends (and their sons). I'll be hosting the shooting clinic for the boys. Obviously I need a place to shoot. I'll be calling the State of WA DNR folks out there tomorrow morning, but I expect their typical not-so-helpful answers.

    Soooooo... any thoughts on where to set up a range in the Steamboat Rock / Banks Lake area?

    Going to be a tough one. Most area outside of there being BIA land. You can call the Colville Tribe and ask.

    I go camping at Banks Lake from time to time, usually at the camping area near Coulee City.
    The area around there is BLM land from what I've checked and I have even asked an LEO regarding target shooting in the surrounding area and they have confirmed that you can.
    You could always as local LEO just in case when you get there.
