Brookings County Outdoor Adventure Center
The Brookings County Outdoor Adventure Center (BCOAC) is a 29,530 square-foot facility. It’s staffed mainly by volunteers who have expert training and years of experience under their belt. The facility boasts an Olympic-length archery range, shooting gallery, classrooms for instruction in outdoor recreation and programming, as well as meeting rooms and conference space. While shooting sports has been a key focus, the center is also home to SDSU Extension, Brookings County 4-H, and the Game, Fish, and Parks. The center works to give kids, adults, active seniors, sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts a platform to improve their skills and learn more about the exciting features the Dakota landscape has to offer.
The BCOAC is also part of our Brookings Great 8 Passport program, encourging visitors and locals to explore our one-of-a-kind attractions.
