USMC Johnson Valley Shared Use Area Current Status

The Marine Corps returned the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area to the Bureau of Land Management and it is now open to the public. The Combat Center is committed to maintaining positive relationships with our community and thanks community members for supporting its efforts in achieving current and progressive service-level training requirements.

In addition, the Marine Corps announced the next planned use of the Shared Use Area for military training in August 1-30, 2017, honoring the commitment to provide a minimum of 12 months advance notice to the public of training in the Shared Use Area.

As with August 2016 training, the closure period will include the time required to ensure the Shared Use Area is clear of recreation activity prior to training and to confirm the land is clear of hazards prior to reopening for public access. The adjacent Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area will remain open to the public during Shared Use Area closure.

For additional information including a map of the area, please visit the United States Marine Corps website. [Posted 8/30/16]
