Camping – Johnson State park

A couple of weeks ago we went camping for the first time. Well, the first time in a VERY long time anyway. We had a great time. Very relaxing. It’s about the only thing that forces us to stop working, running, doing, fixing, cleaning…..we went to Johnson State Park.

We’ve taken family picture’s at this place before and there are so many pretty areas. We put away all electronics and gadgets and brought out the frisbee, puzzles and making up outside games, going on walks, playing on the play equipment, roasting everything over the fire, throwing sticks and rocks in the water, rolling down hills.

Found a hiking stick and she’s ready to go. Glad she’s always ready to explore and likes walks, hikes and bike rides like I do. Pretty green scenery in every direction.

This was the coolest cluster of tree’s. So many good shots from so many angles. Notice the heart shape on the front one.

All the tree’s are just gorgeous here. Wish I’d have had my big camera with me.

We camp in an open area for campers but tent campers camp here in these super tall tree’s. It’s the coolest looking area ever. I do believe campers can fit in a few spots here.

This little guy followed us for awhile.

They have clean, wide, decent trails. We didn’t go very far this time, but plan to next time.

Taken a break before getting a piggy back ride part of the way back. As you are on the trails or on the road that circles the lake, there are a few areas where you can pull over and picnic.

Love these tall tree’s.I think a family picture right on this road would be amazing.

Although it looks neat when there are tons of tenters here, it was kind of fun for the kids to play in these tree’s when no one was camping.

There was a restaurant but we didn’t make it over to that. We love grilling out and using the campfire, so restaurant for us is pretty much only when it rains us out. They also have a bait shop near the restaurant and boat launch. There is also a play structure for the kids to play on, but as a bad blogger, I did not bring my camera as I didn’t want to drop it play with the kids on it.
