As part of its mission to provide the best recreational experiences for Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) visitors in Colorado, CPW is in the process of developing Cameo, a 2,000 acre, first-class education and shooting complex located in Palisade, Colorado. Cameo will offer state-of-the-art facilities for visitors to safely and enjoyably shoot rifles, pistols, archery, and shotguns. Additionally, Cameo will be an educational facility for the public and a training facility for law enforcement.
CPW anticipates that the complex will draw up to 50,000 visitors (national and international) per year through the promotion of competitive sporting events, including competitions involving sporting clays, skeet, archery, cowboy action shooting, pistol, and rifle venues. Cameo will also provide visitors special amenities, such as a clubhouse, individual picnic shelters, and RV parking.
