Hello Carlene,
Welcome to Silver Lakes Resort (Helendale). Ft Irwin is about an hour and change from Helendale (depending on how far you are from the main gate). I have been blessed to work with our Military families locating "home" in Silver Lakes. As I understand, there are car pools from here to Ft Irwin, as there are many who choose to live here and enjoy our life style, when work hours are over.

I guess it depends on you and if you think you can drive that much. Keep in mind that will put you on the road for two hours a day. Some would be fine with that, others not so much.

Hi Carleen,

There are many people both enlisted and civilian who live here in Silver Lakes/Helendale and commute to Ft. Irwin. It is approximately an hour's drive and most of them think it is worth it. There are buses, van pools and car pools, so the commute can be done in several ways. Our community is pretty quiet, with many amenities that come with living here. It is a good idea to choose a local Realtor who lives here and knows about this community and all that it as to offer. Whether you rent or buy, Silver Lakes is a great place to live! Just ask some of your co-workers!

I have helped many clients find a home in Silverlakes who work in Fort Irwin. I also know of homeowners in Northern Victorville, Apple Valley, and Spring Valley Lake who work in and near Fort Irwin. Housing is very affordable in Helendale and Silver Lakes. Don't hesitate to call if you need more information.
