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. Recreationists are also encouraged to explore other nearby off-roading areas including Stoddard Valley OHV Area and Ocotillo Wells State Vehicle Recreation Area when the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area is closed.

Training is conducted at the Combat Center year-round, including ranges acquired through the land expansion bordering the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area. Please be aware and respect base boundaries when recreating near the installation. Individuals have a personal and legal responsibility to avoid trespassing.
