There are two Stoddard wells exits, you can exit either one, but the second one is preferable. The old riding area around bell mountain is now closed, so you must drive further up the road to the new area. I have marked several red dots where you can camp away from the large flat areas where you will find all of the bro's (and dust). This is a massive riding area which encompasses all of Stoddard wells, Barstow and Lucerne Valley. SlashX is about 20 miles from your camp towards Barstow, bar and grill (young kids okay), there is no gas there so make sure you can make a round trip. There is a lot of flat-haul-ass across the desert stuff and there are mild to insane rock climbs. You couldn't see it all if you stayed out there a month. Carry water, even if you are going a short distance from camp.
