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 closed M-F for construction of a new range next to it. This will be until sometime in June. The pistol range is still open M-F. Both ranges open on weekends as usual. Be sure to check the calendar (below) for events before coming out!

The Amherst County Fair will be held on August 16th-19th for the first time in years! The IWLL Park Promotions Committee will display an information booth at the fair and we need members to take turns working the booth. Our goal is to inform as many people as we can about our beautiful park and encourage families to visit us at Open House on August 25th.

Please help support your park by choosing to sign up for a slot(s) to work the booth. To help out please:
