Location

Unfortunately, Chabot Gun Club’s lease was not renewed by the East Bay Regional Park District and the marksmanship range is now permanently closed. We thank all of our tens of thousands of patrons for your support for more than fifty years at this important facility. There are no plans to open up at another location at this time, although we still are open to suggestions.

Chabot Gun Club is located in the East Bay in the heart of the Anthony Chabot Regional Park. Our physical address is 9999 Redwood Road, Castro Valley, CA  94546. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 2246, Castro Valley, CA 94546-0246.

The internet map finders have experienced some trouble finding us so we have included comprehensive directions to the range.

Gun Club

These directions use freeways and main access roads. There are a couple of  short cuts and back roads that are enjoyable to drive. Once you find the range, ask us and we might know a different way home. There is no reliable cell phone service along Redwood Road from Oakland to Castro Valley and the last gas stations are at least 8 miles away from the range so be prepared before you drop into the woods on Redwood Road. Call us first (510-569-0213) if you are unsure of the directions.
