Johnson State Park the perfect place to spend a football weekend.

A scenic hill top shaded by stately pines provides the setting for 125 RV camping pads. All of the pads feature water , sewer, and electrical hook-ups. Picnic tables and grills are located throughout the developed camping area, which also features a central sewage dumping station and three bathhouses.

Twenty-five sites in a secluded, pastoral setting on Lake Geiger are set aside for tent camping, affording maximum privacy and beautiful, unspoiled water views. Water and a bathhouse featuring hot showers and restrooms are available near the primitive camping areas.
