Default Borrego Springs area

I've done some searching but can't seem to find current/recent information (unfortunately this is probably because it hasn't changed, but I'm going to ask anyway). Is there any public land that is open to shooting at this point within an hour or two drive of the Borrego Springs area? From everything I can find the BLM restrictions on target shooting are still in place, but curious if there might be anything else around.

Any public land will likely be BLM, and subject to whatever the current restrictions are.

I found a nice map with current fire restrictions here:
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Go East of Borrego a few miles and you hit Imperial county, no restrictions there.

SD county BLM land is closed until further notice. Imperial county is open all year long.

You could also come to a clean up and find new locations as well.

There's a spot at Ocotillo Wells, not too far from Borrego Springs.

The abandoned Salton Sea Naval Base has some nice shooting areas with distance and backstops. Access is primarily with 4 x 4. I have been going there for 20 years. PM me and I can give details .
