The Nisqually River runs through Fort Lewis so it is best to get
access to the fort. Access Range Control operates the Area
Access office to issue permits and grant non-training access to
the Range Complex. The Area Access office is located in Building

Go to the visitor center located at exit 120 on I-5. You will
need your drivers license, insurance information, and
registration for your vehicle. Ask for a pass so that you can go
to the Range office.
