Welcome to the Joint Base Lewis-McChord iSportsman
THIS IS THE OFFICAL SITE TO OBTAIN ALL PERMITS AND INFORMATION ABOUT RECREATION AT JBLM
NOTICE: We do not yet have allocations from Range Operations for Monday October 1st or beyond. We expect to receive those in the morning and will open allocated areas immediately. We're sorry for the delay, but thankful the expected shutdown was avoided. Thank you for your patience.
NOTICE: IF AN AREA IS DISPLAYING RED ON THE INTERACTIVE MAP OR AREA STATUS LIST, IT IS CLOSED DUE TO SCHEDULING CONFLICTS WITH MILITARY TRAINING OPERATIONS.
DO NOT CONTACT DES OR MILITARY POLICE TO HAVE AN AREA OPENED! We realize this is different from the previous system, but this is safer for both military and recreational activities, and is the policy set by Range Operations under which we must operate.

It is our goal to provide JBLM visitors with safe, high quality hunting and outdoor recreation opportunities by managing the installation's ecosystems and biodiversity through conservation, protection, and restoration while prioritizing and supporting the military mission in a responsible manner. Recreation activities at JBLM include hunting, fishing, hiking, bird and wildlife watching, horseback riding, and more. We are proud to be able to share these areas with you and thank you for your contribution to our conservation efforts.
