Martinsville Sportsman's Conservation Club

New Openings?????

There are NO openings for the year 2022. Once again we have had near complete renewal of our 500 existing member families.

Next possible date for openings is Jan 1, 2023 and advice regarding that will be posted here a day or two after Christmas 2022.

New highway 69 thru Martinsville...how to reach the club 

After a year of highway 37 closure at Martinsville, the newly named highway 69 opened just before Christmas.  Burton Lane is no longer directly accessible off the highway.  

From Highway 69, take exit 138 for Ohio St. and follow signs to Burton Lane on the southern most edge of Martinsville. Travel East on Burton Lane, passing "Indy's Restaurant" on your right, go about 1/2 mile and make a sharp left turn onto our drive immediately after crossing the concrete bridge over Indian Creek.

The club's main, electronic gate is just a few yards off Burton.  Member gate cards activate the gate.

Our Club

The purpose of this non-profit club is to provide it's members with safe shooting ranges for the practice of marksmanship and competition as well as a forested wildlife habitat suitable for hunting, fishing, hiking recreation and family outings for the fellowship of all.


Members are expected to practice safe firearm handling, sportsmanship afield and conservation while using club facilities and grounds.  

It is our goal to pass on to our heirs the joys and privileges of a better outdoors.

WARNING...Hunters and hikers must stay off the 300 meter range at all times...walk around it, never, ever across it into the line of fire.

Range is completely surrounded by fencing and 92 "Danger/Keep Out/Shooting Range" signs mounted on fence posts.  Despite this, in late Oct. 2014 a hunting member climbed the fence and walked directly across the line of fire on the crossover road.  A shooter preparing to fire fortunately saw the trespasser in time and made safe his rifle.

Trespasser was unharmed...but the Board revoked his membership permanently.  We take safety rules seriously.

 Tour of Club by a member

One of our members has produced a YouTube video of our club showcasing much of the club including the bathroom!  As his video was done in 2012, it does not include our 300 M range built in late 2013 or other range additions and improvements noted in 2015-2018...but it gives a good flavor of the place...enjoy!
