Leetown Gun Club
The Jefferson County Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America is a members-only organization located in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, approximately one hour from Washington D.C. Established in 1947, the club owns 97 secluded acres which include ponds, trap shooting and skeet fields, rifle, pistol and 3-D archery ranges. The club is an NRA affiliate. The clubhouse is heated and air conditioned, has seating for over 75, and has a fully equipped kitchen. Meals are served at monthly meetings and at registered events. Meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month.
If the electronic gate will not open due to a power outage, members may exit the club using the double metal gate, as the code on the lock always matches that on the keypad.
