Cameo Shooting and Education Complex inaugurated by Gov. Hickenlooper, state dignitaries and 200 in attendance during 'First Shot Ceremony"

First Shot Decal

​​​The shooting range was officially introduced to the public at the May Grand Openin​g "First Shot Ceremony." ​

The amount of partners vested in making this a reality is incredible. The entire community is supporting and acknowledging this project as a significant future economic development benefit.

Thank you for everyone's support and all who participated in the "First Shot" event.

Progress is underway for a new, world-class ​shooting and education facility in Western Colorado!​​ ​​

After a lengthy negotiation process, the Town of Palisade, Xcel Energy and Snowcap Coal Company closed a real estate transaction that officially transferred o​​wnership of an ideal site to the Town of Palisade. The p​urchase clears the way for CPW to begin designing and constructing the 2,000 acre​​ complex in scenic​ Western Colorado.​

The Town of Palisade and CPW are closing in on the execution of a lease. The August Commission meeting​ will be the next step​ for authorization.​

The public will rapidly see the start of what will one day be a world class shooting facility. 

Investment and donation opportunities available. Contact CPW Area Wildlife Manager JT Romatzke at 970-255-6178.
