The Ray Roberts State Park Johnson Branch Unit Campgrounds can actually be broken down into five separate camping areas. These loops are Juniper Cove, Walnut, Oak Point, Dogwood Canyon and Willow Cove. Juniper Cove sites 1-39 are spread out like a pinwheel around the center, which hosts a playground as well as bathroom/shower facilities. Fully hooked up with electricity and water, there’s even a payphone on site should you have an urgent business to attend to. Walnut sites 40-104 have their own little inlet on Ray Roberts Lake. These sites, like Juniper Cove, come with electricity/water hookups and a playgrounds, but sadly no pay phone. Messenger pigeons however, may be rented at park headquarters. Just kidding. Oak Point sites 105-134 are situated on a peninsula (that vaguely resembles an elephant’s trunk), protruding into the lake. This site is literally surrounded by amenities and facilities. These include, but are not limited to chemical toilets (right on site), payphones, picnic tables, playground, amphitheater, boat launch, fish cleaning station and there are also restroom and shower facilities just a short hike away. Dogwood sites 135-154 are pretty bare bones, for tent camping only, and come equipped with nothing aside from chemical toilets. However, these sites are located right on the DORBA Trailhead and provide immediate access to multiple hiking/biking trails. Willow Cove sites 155-165 are the only grounds at this park not located on the narrow lake inlet on which the rest of the sites are located. Situated rather directly on the west coast of Ray Roberts Lake, the sites have lots of room for picnics and other recreational activity. Restrooms as well as showers can also be found nearby.
