These are directions to our older launch site see home page for our most recent site which is off of Davis Road-GPS coordinates are on home page under Hotline phone number.
All of our launches are 25 miles southwest of Fresno at the Maddox Dairy, which is two miles west of the intersection of Kamm and
Jameson Avenues. With the ranch covering 1000šs of acres, the exact launch site can change from month to month. Look for a rocket
sign to show you which road to turn down. The launch site can be 0.5 mile east or as far as 5 miles west of the dairy. Please treat
the dairy and ranch property with respect. We want to continue to have permission to use the property.
For those of you with GPS (if you need that explained, you don't have it) the coordinates are:
N 36° 31.902', W 120° 01.531' or N 36° 31' 54.1 ", W 120° 01' 31.9"
