The San Jacinto Wildlife Area public lands currently total about 20,000 acres. The Wildlife Area shares a common boundary with the 8,800 acre Lake Perris State Recreation Area. The majority of the Wildlife Area is located in unincorporated Riverside County. The northern portion of the Wildlife Area is included within the city limits of Incorporated City of Moreno Valley. Davis Road, an unimproved dirt road, bisects the Wildlife Area in a north-south direction. This roadway is maintained by CDFW on the north and the County of Riverside on the south. Surrounding land users are primarily involved in agriculture principally dry land wheat farming and dairy operations. The private lands immediately north of the Wildlife Area are currently farmed and are included within the City of Moreno Valley jurisdiction. The 150 acre Double Bar "S" Horse Ranch represents the only substantial in-holding within the current Wildlife Area boundary. To the east lies Mystic Lake bed, the most northern portion of which has recently been Incorporated into the Wildlife Area. The south eastern parts of the lake bed remain in private ownership and are used for agriculture when not inundated with flood waters from the San Jacinto River. Numerous privately owned hunt clubs (waterfowl and game bird hunting clubs) are also located on the current eastern boundary of the Wildlife Area. The unincorporated rural communities of Lakeview and Nuevo are located to the south. Much of the land on the immediate southern boundary of the Wildlife Area is currently farmed by the Amway Corporation Nutrilite Division.
