A secluded fee for use area, located in the chaparral covered northern San Bernadino National Forest is looking for the proper individual or couple who is looking for a Southern California RV location.

Conveniently located close to I-15/215, and 210 Freeways, Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino are easily accessed. The facility is located at the 4,400’ elevation in the shadow of Mt. Baldy, highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountain range, and the Sheep Mountain Wilderness Area, in the Lytle Creek Canyon drainage.

The adjoining communities are still rural, however a large mall and other amenities are a half hour drive.

Low humidity without extreme temperatures makes for a comfortable environment the majority of the year.

Activities in a developing controlled shooting range includes the use of firearms and archery equipment from designated locations at designated targets. This is a controlled use area. A tolerance of firearms is expected.

It is open seven days a week, and closes at 16:00 and opens at 08:00. The hosts are expected to maintain a presence on the property after hours, merely as a deterrent to unauthorized entry.

Host positions are seasonal. Applicants are expected to have a clean, self-contained RV, and should be able to provide proof of insurance and current registration. A tow behind vehicle is a plus. The host area is separated from the shooting area by approximately 70 yards.

Currently, conditions are primitive. However, sanitation needs are serviced weekly, and potable water will be supplied, as well as an alternative power source. Amenities are in the works.

Pets are acceptable, as long as shots are current and they are kept under control.

Local activities include hiking, fishing, hunting, bird watching, stargazing, 4-wheeling, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, gold mining or panning, and peace and quiet.

This could be a fine situation for active retirees who enjoy the seclusion of the outdoors and enjoy people in moderation.

Financial compensation commensurate with activities performed. The hosts must be bondable.

Work 3-20  hours per week, per couple.

Applications accepted until the position is filled.
