Izaak Walton League of America

Lynchburg Chapter

Welcome to the Izaak Walton League of Lynchburg! We are part of the Izaak Walton League of America, a non-profit national conservation organization with a mission, "To conserve, maintain, protect and restore the soil, forest, water, and other national resources of the United States and other lands, to promote means and opportunities for the education of the public with respect to such resources and their enjoyment and wholesome utilization."

Established in January 1941, one of the ways the Lynchburg, Virginia Chapter has striven to fulfill the IWLA mission is through the development and maintenance of our Walton Park recreational facility. Located in Amherst County just north of Madison Heights, Walton Park covers 325 acres and includes a campground, swimming and fishing lakes, picnic areas, playgrounds, and shotgun, rifle, pistol, and archery ranges.

Also see our Facebook pages Izaak Walton League of Lynchburg and Walton Park Archery.

NOTE: The Rifle Range is open again full-time! But watch out for anyone over there visible ahead of the firing line or coming around the back side of the new range. The Pistol Range never closed, and is also open full-time.

NEW! See our Facebook page: Action Shooting at Izaak Walton - Lynchburg
