Not when a: permits are required, and b: the phone number listed they ask you to call regarding said permit won't let me in (AKA, it rings and says 'please enter authorization code'. ) A lot of the phone numbers listed on web sites are outdated. Information gave me the same (wrong) one for Glen Helen Regional Park, and it doesn't even have a listing for El Mirage Dry Lake Bed. Oh, well. Being in the desert, there are a LOT of dry lake beds around. My second choice is Lucerne Valley dry lake bed. Of course, they have a lot of model airplane enthusiasts, and since it's less regulated than El Mirage, we may have to look out for a miniature Red Baron buzzing by in the middle of a scene. It's also rather small. I liked the idea of El Mirage 'cause it's so big you can go out in the middle and make it look like Tatooine, no prob. But without a permit...no go.
