The Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will be temporarily closed to the public August 1-30, 2017 while the Marine Corps conducts military training to support a large-scale exercise.
This closure period will include the time required to ensure the Shared Use Area is clear of recreation activity prior to training, and confirm the land is clear of hazards prior to reopening the land for public access. The adjacent Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area will remain open to the public during the closure of the Shared Use Area. The Marine Corps will continue to conduct outreach to ensure the public is informed of the temporary change in land use.
For additional information, please contact the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Public Affairs Office at 760-830-6213 or SMBPLMSWEBPAO@usmc.mil.
