Located in the middle of the Smithville Lake Park (20 minutes east of KC International Airport and 30 minutes north of downtown Kansas City), the KCTA Public Shooting Park enjoys eastern, western, and southern views of the 7,200-acre lake that is within walking distance of our trap line. Administered by Clay County’s Department of Parks, this lake features more than 175 miles of shoreline abounding in wildlife. Lake fishing game species include crappie, largemouth bass, catfish, muskie, bluegill, and walleye. Additionally, there are more than 7,000 acres of public hunting in the Smithville wildlife management area. Local game includes turkey, deer, ducks, geese, and quail (sometimes visible from the trap line). Other recreational facilities within the park include camping sites, a golf course, swimming beaches, two marinas, picnic areas, sailboat facilities, ball fields, and miles upon miles of one of the nation’s finest networks of paved walking and biking trails.
