DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This large and open area is located in the Mojave Desert and consists of a dry lakebed and miles of surrounding sand washes, desert trails and scattered play areas to explore.

There is limited shade available within the campsites but it can be quite windy making the trails and lakebed very dusty. The area is open year round but the lakebed may be off limits during wet weather.

During weekends this place can be packed with visitors (dry lake racing) but it gets very little use during the week. Beginning October 1, 2008 El Mirage Cooperative Management Area became a fee-based area.

Daily passes start at $15.00, but weekly and annual passes are also available and offer significant savings. Onsite kiosk machines accept credit cards and cash (exact change only).
