I wanna say that johnson valley is a shotgun only area.We usually head to calico area for camp and shoot weekends.Just drive back and find a nice spot.

Depending on where you go there may be a few people but further in you may be the only group around.We have been going there for about 20 years and always a great time.Most times its been with friends but the past 3-4 years i have got more family going out now too since they have all been buying guns.

San Bernardino County shooting area map shows where you can legally discharge a firearm in San Bernardino County.

Jawbone is in kern County are you tent campers or RV campers? Jawbone is very popular with OHV and is a great place for that this time of year it will be very HOT . If you are not in OHVS there's a lot better place that will not have OHVS this time of year not many folks will be out at Jawbone because the heat and watch for snakes anywhere in the desert this time of year.

I am strictly a tent camper, my wife prefers to sleep with stars above her next to the tent. And I moved to SB from Needles so I am used to heat and snakes although as I get older I am less used to heat
