The Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will be temporarily closed to the public beginning Friday October 22, 2021 through Monday November 1, 2021 while the Marine Corps conducts critical military training in the area. Please note this is a change from previously announced dates and reflects a shorter closure period within the originally scheduled dates of October 15, 2021 through November 1, 2021.
The Marine Corps decided to shorten the closure period after refining the scope of training to be conducted in October and November 2021. 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.
As previously announced, the Johnson Valley Shared Use Area will also be closed for military training on the following dates in 2022: April 26 – May 9, 2022 and October 18 – November 1, 2022.
The Marine Corps would like to thank the community for their continued support.
