We drove around the lake and really enjoyed the nature all around. The short little bridge is quaint, and adds to the beauty of this prestine area.

On a reconnaissance mission as we are planning a birthday party for a timeframe in April. The folks at the Visitor Center were very helpful.We saw the area around the Visitor Center. The Lake offers many activities and boat rental starts in April. Parking lots in two places, however if the weather is nice parking could be a challenge. The pavillions we saw were nice. In fact after our visit we reserved pavillion # 4. The trails are paved which will be a benefit to some of the guests when we have our event. Grills are provided at the pavillion. Looking forward to coming back for the celebration party!

The trail is nice and they offer boat rentals and such (although we have never used them), but the place has a few problems. They have very limited parking. On a nice day, you may drive here only to realize the lots are full and you are stuck in a line of 5 cars waiting to park. This has happened to us a few times so we don't really bother trying anymore. Also there is a lot of dog waste along the trail due to people not cleaning up after their dogs. We also have encountered people who have let there dogs swim off the leash by the dam even though it is illegal. Our (large) dog doesn't mind other dogs most of the time, but he has gotten into it a time or two with unleashed dogs here that have ran up to him/us.

Went to scout this location for an upcoming OLLI course on the health benefits of spending time in forests. Lake Johnson is slightly off the beaten path (highways), and muted traffic noise still gets through the pleasant natural setting. Paths are paved to increase access for people with mobility issues, and benches or picnic tables are strategically placed throughout the park. As we were walking the path, a red-tailed hawk swooped past us - wow! The lake's lovely and serene. We'll be back.

Went paddle boarding on a Tuesday morning. Beautiful lake, decent paddle board, mildewed life jacket (what can you expect, I guess). The staff on the lake were young and somewhat reluctant to really get hands on, but it was my first experience and I had a good time. $10 to rent the paddle board per hour. Goes until August 25th (I believe) and then only available on weekends.
