A Russian River tradition for over a century, Johnson’s Beach is a favorite summer spot for Sonoma County locals and visitors alike. Sunning, swimming and floating at our Guerneville beach is as much a Sonoma County pastime as wine tasting and strolling through the redwoods.
Located ninety minutes north of the Bay Area in the charming and eclectic town of Guerneville, this classic summer getaway sits in the heart of the Russian River Valley and provides the quintessential summertime river experience.
Nothing feels more like summer than spending time with family and friends on a beautiful Russian River beach, lounging comfortably with a cold drink in hand or floating on the water soaking up the sunshine. Johnson's Beach offers everything you need for a great day, including rentals of canoes, kayaks, inner tubes, beach chairs, and umbrellas, plus a kiddie pond and snack bar with beer and wine. Pets are not permitted with the exception of ‘service dogs’.
Return to simpler pleasures at our Russian River campground and recharge in a rustic setting surrounded by majestic redwoods. Johnson's Beach offers a range of lodging for a comfortable stay, with some of the most sought-after Guerneville accommodations, including vintage cabins from the 1920s, and an urban campground, complete with BBQ area and laundry facilities.
