Johnson Valley closure date changes

The Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will be temporarily closed to the public beginning Friday April 29, 2022 through Monday May 9, 2021 while the Marine Corps conducts critical military training in the area. Please note this is a change from previous announcements. These dates reflect a shortened window from the originally scheduled dates of April 26, 2022 through May 9, 2022.

When possible, the Marine Corps elects to shorten closure periods to allow for maximum public use and recreation in the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area.

Upcoming closures of the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area:

  • April 29 - May 9, 2022
  • February 17 - 27, 2023
  • August 25 - September 4, 2023

Closure periods include the time required to ensure the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area is clear of recreation activity prior to military training and to confirm the land is safe for public access before reopening. The adjacent Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area is unaffected by closures to the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area and remains open to the public for recreation and off-roading.

Training is conducted within Combat Center boundaries year-round, including ranges acquired through the land expansion bordering the Shared Use Area. The Marine Corps reminds the public to be safe and respect base boundaries when recreating near the installation. Individuals have a personal and legal responsibility to avoid trespassing.
