A daily vehicle permit is required. The archery range is always set up with bales and has two hanging targets; which gives shooters a chance to practice when there aren't regular shoots going on. There are bathrooms also located at the archery range.

Ron Allen Memorial Disc Golf Course: New to the park in 2017, the Ron Allen Memorial Disc Course is located right here at HTR! The course was designed by Ron Allen's grandson, Ethan Tschanz and world famous disc golfer, Eric McCabe. It has been a popular addition to the park! Ron saw the vision of HorseThief Reservoir and played a HUGE role in bringing the park to life. Unfortunately, Ron passed away just a few months sort of seeing water come into the Reservoir. Hodgeman County remembers Ron fondly and is thankful the family continues to be such active campers to HTR! There are no fees to play the Disc Golf Course; just a $5.00 daily vehicle permit! There are 18 holes which are laid nicely around the south end of the lake. See the Ron Allen Memorial Disc Golf Course page for more details and the course map.
