Johnsons Beach is a wonderful place to take your family. A bathhouse gives you a place to use the restroom and change clothes. The covered picnic area provides protection from the sun. Lots of parking!

This beach is only 7 mins from my home and I totally love to go there. The sand is white and the facilities are excellent including pavilions that can be rented for weddings
