For over 100 years, Johnson’s Beach has offered the summertime fun of a Russian River campground all within easy walking distance to Guerneville’s charming downtown. Located on 11 acres (including the riverside beach), the Johnson’s Beach campground features camping overlooking the Russian River. Broad-limbed sycamore and black walnut trees provide a shady retreat from the sun-drenched beach area during the daytime, and our hillside vantage point provides a beautiful nighttime view of the moon and the stars reflected on the river.

Tight space but convenient
While overall, the stay was fine and I appreciated having the quick sign in, the sites were quite close. Also, while I could tell the bathrooms were clean and saw cleaning staff there in the morning, the bathrooms, particularly the stalls, could use a little TLC. The site was on the river that offered paddle boats and kayaks. I didn’t stay along enough to use them, but if that is something you would like to do, then this is a good place for that. The site was also right in town in Guerneville, so it was easy to walk out of the camp and go out to eat or grab coffee.
The host was lovely and accomodating. Great washing sink and a short walk to the bathrooms. It was great to be inbetween the main street and the beach. Safeway is in a walkable distance as is the beach. A great time on the river! Thanks Chris!
These campgrounds were very well maintained and offered so many amenities, with the number 1 amenity being the extremely short distance to the river! It wasn’t super crowded, so we had plenty of privacy. Fires were allowed during our stay, which is almost unheard of in California, and each site had a fire pit and a picnic table. The campground is also 1 street away from the main strip in Guerneville so if you don’t pack enough food or whatever, you can grab it.
Unwind in joy
What a cute place to unwind after a long drive! Access to nearby restaurants and grocery shopping helped me restock my supplies (and belly). Laundry on site was a helpful plus! Russian River is quite a sight; I would book here again if I come back to Guerneville!
I can wait to go back :)
Chris’s camping area it’s amazing , from location ,clean, u got everything around ! We had a great time !
I’ll be staying here from now and on for sure !
Thank you guys. 🙏🏼☺️
Hidden gem - heart of guerneville
Great campground with amazing access to the beautiful Russian River. There’s even canoe and kayak rentals available. I found the campground to be very pleasant and am unexpected plus is that Guerneville restaurants and amenities are a very short walk from the campground. The host Chris was awesome too! Recommended.
