Following guidance from state and local public health authorities, Jawbone Canyon and Dove Springs OHV Areas will reopen for public use and enjoyment on May 15. The visitor center will remain closed at this time. The BLM encourages responsible, local recreation to avoid putting strain on communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please practice social distancing, don’t gather in large groups and clean your hands often. Social distancing recommendations may require that visitors spread out to less popular areas and avoid times of highest use, such as weekends. Visitors are encouraged to practice Leave No Trace principles. Please bring your own sanitary products, including toilet paper and hand sanitizer, and pack out all trash as services are limited.
For visual clarification, here is a current map of the Jawbone/Dove Springs area.
The yellow boxes represent the Onyx Ranch State Vehicular Recreation Areas (SVRA). These areas are for DAY USE ONLY. State Parks has posted A-frames with signs in some of the more popular campsites regarding no overnight camping. Everything else is open for camping and riding.
Red Rock Canyon State Park is still closed. Camping and riding is available in California City but Borax Bill Park is closed.
