Default Good Place for outdoor shooting?

Hello everyone! New to Calguns and hope I can get some recommendations from my Riverside locals!

Any recommendations where my family, friends, and myself can go out and shoot? Currently we go to Barstow but itís a little far. Iím wanting to join a club but many clubs I see have a long waitlist or I wonít be able to bring my family and friends (thereís about 6 of us total usually). Iím near Lake Matthews and heard about Corona Sportmanship but their website states theyíre not accepting new members at the moment. Any clubs, decently priced ranges, or spots we can check out that is somewhat local or is Barstow our best bet?

Thank You in advance!

You can get a LIMITED membership to West End Gun Club which is in the same area as Lytle Creek. Which will be your best best. Raahaughes is over $30 PER PERSON for TWO HOURS. So, your little 6 person group will cost you almost $200 just to get in and you'll be gone in 2 hours.

No you do not need a 4X4. During the wet season there are times there is a stream running but when its not raining I have made it there with my front wheel drive mini van.

Does anyone know if Corona Sportsmen's Club is members only on weekends? I remember reading somewhere on here that they are open to guests on weekends but is that only if I'm accompanied by a member there?

As a Rivvie Local I feel your pain. We've been making desert trips to the same area you go to for decades. When SP was open for shooting it was a lot more convenient, but those days are gone.

Sure, it's a long drive and I don't go nearly as often as I like, but I do prefer the benefits of shooting out in the dez.

Good luck on your search, wish I had a closer alternative as well, but I haven't found anything yet.

You could head to the Palms Springs area.

High Desert Rod & Gun Website is about the same drive (maybe 10 miles less) and open to the public Friday - Sunday. $10/person

Palm Springs Gun Club Website isn't open to the public, but you likely know someone and membership is very reasonable. No rifle range at the moment though.

Haha yeah you know how it is! I really donít mind making the drive out there once in awhile but it just kills me making the drive back when weíre all tired then thereís traffic on the way back, weíre all hungry, itís a hassle lol

Iím looking into Corona Sportsmenís Club right now since I live near Lake Matthews. Just got an email from Pete that thereís a waitlist currently but to find out more info, I should go to their next meeting in January. I read somewhere on here that guests can come by on the weekends but it was an old post so Iím not sure if thatís still allowed or if I need to be accompanied by a member /: waiting for a reply but I hope weekends are still open as I mainly shoot on the weekends anyways lol

Heard about those two ranges. The thing is, and this is just me personally, I believe thereís BLM land in Indio like 15-20 mins more down the freeway? Went a while ago. If I was to head out to those ranges, I feel for me I might as well make the extra drive to Indio. And if Iím correct, isnít the membership for those two clubs not necessarily unlimited range time but just a discount? I could be completely wrong but I think read somewhere it was?
