Johnson’s Beach

A Russian River tradition for nearly a century, Johnson’s Beach is a favorite summer spot for Sonoma County locals and visitors alike. Sunning, swimming and floating at Johnson’s 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.

Beach Open
Only Sat and Sun - 10am to 6pm
Mid-May Until the End of September

(But please tell Olive, Lulu and

Return to simpler pleasures and recharge in a rustic setting on the river surrounded by majestic redwoods. Johnson's Beach offers a range of lodging, including vacation rental accommodations in the “lodge,” vintage cabins from the 1920s, an urban campground, complete with BBQ area and laundry facilities for a comfortable stay.

Nothing feels more like summer than spending time with family and friends on the beautiful Russian River, lounging comfortably on the beach 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 canoes, kayaks, inner tubes, beach chairs, umbrellas, natural kiddie pool, snack bar and more.

Just a short 90-minute drive from the Bay Area, head north on Highway 101 to the north end of Santa Rosa. Take Exit 494, the River Road/Guerneville/Russian River Resort Area exit. Turn left onto River Road and travel 15 miles to Guerneville. Go through the two stoplights in town then turn left onto Church Street. To get to the beach, continue straight ahead on Church. To get to the lodge, cabins and campground, turn left on First Street. The driveway is about one half block down First Street on the right.
