The OHV Park is an area consisting of nearly 100,000 acres of open trails – talk about a playground prime for the outdoor enthusiast.

The Area

Johnson Valley is just North of the San Bernardino Mountains in the Mojave high desert region with an average elevation more than 3,000 feet.

The Landscape

A varied landscape is punctuated by vast valleys, sand dunes, large dry lake beds, sandy washes and massive rocky buttes. Vegetation consists mostly of Joshua trees, creosote scrub, and wild flowers that bloom with a rainbow of color in the spring time.

The Location

We are conveniently located near many popular Southern California tourist destinations. About 3o minutes from Joshua Tree National Park and Big Bear Lake. About 1 hour from Palm Springs International and Ontario International airports and less than 2 hours from most Los Angeles and Orange County communities.
