About us

Summer is made for Johnson’s Beach. For nearly 100 years, we´ve been a Guerneville summer tradition with our warm hospitality making our beach, cabins and campsites a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike.

Johnson’s Beach on the Russian River offers the perfect summer day outdoors, complete with canoes, kayaks and pedal boats, sun umbrellas and beach chair rentals. Our affordable wine and beer-licensed snack bar completes the experience with everything you need for a great day at the river.


The Beach at Johnson’s Beach has something for everyone. Splash out on the water or just relax and float the day away. Our pedal boats, canoes. kayaks and inner tubes always promise a good time and safe water fun.

The roped-off kiddie pool allows toddlers and novice swimmers to enjoy the river safely, while the summer dam provides deeper waters for more adventurous swimmers. Time to relax? We offer umbrella and beach chair rentals so you can recline in shaded comfort.

Our snack bar serves affordable, traditional summer favorites like burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream. And you can top off your lunch with a frosty cold beer from our Boathouse while kicking back in a beach chair and listening favorite summertime hits streaming from the speakers. Check our calendar for upcoming events and concerts. There is no charge for admission.

Parking is available, $5/car.
