Rockville Fish & Game club is a private club targeted toward servicing our members’ interests and needs. Due to liability concerns, the facilities are closed to the public as a norm. Guests accompanied by a member in good standing are welcome.
We often hold public shoots and meets which anyone can attend. The calendar of events is available on the Calendar page, and additional information can be found on the Competition page and our Facebook page.
The Rockville Fish & Game Club, which was established in 1925, is a member-oriented and owned Sportsman’s Club, dedicated to outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, recreational shooting, and archery.
The land and facilities owned and operated by the Club include a large Main Club House and Pavilion that can be rented by members. Sport shooting ranges for trap and skeet, a rifle range, pistol range, an archery house with a practice field, two fish ponds, and the club owns and maintains a house on Crystal Lake with a boat launch and pier. These facilities are located on approximately 93 acres south of Fish & Game Road, and 38 acres on the north side. In addition, the club owns and maintains a house on Crystal Lake with a boat launch and pier.

Events for the Boy Scouts
There are a variety of different shooting events during the summer:
Plate & pin shooting
Black powder day
Annual bullseye competition between the pistol and archery shooter
The Skeet & Trap range provides Trap or Skeet targets as requested by the shooters.
The two fishponds, which are stocked yearly, invite members to try their luck. There is also fishing on Crystal Lake and members can keep a canoe or boat at the Lake House.
For the Archers there are practice ranges and a 3-D shoot on the third Sunday of most months during the spring and summers. A 3-D shoot is a target competition that challenges the archers with a variety of life like targets on a course laid out in the woods.
The State of Connecticut, Department Of Environmental Protection, also uses the Club for the required conservation Education Firearms Safety Course. Qualified members conduct pistol safety courses and provide guidance to shooters who would like to participate in the different leagues. Safe gun handling and shooting are primary goals of the club and all members are expected to teach and practice the safe gun handling principles.
The Club is open to anyone with an interest in the outdoors or a desire for a safe place to shoot. There are shotguns and ammunition for beginners at the Trap & Skeet field and members will welcome and assist anyone with the desire to learn the proper and safe way to enjoy the shooting sports.
The Membership meeting is held on the Second Monday of every month and the Board of Directors meetings are held the preceding Tuesday. Anyone interested in the club or its’ activities should consider attending.
