Purchased late in the fall of 2013 and reopened for business in the spring of 2014, the new owners, Frank and Sandy, have renovated the hotel and restaurant at Johnson’s Crossing. Highspeed WiFi is available for all overnight guests to the lodge and campground, just ask for the password then check your email, update your FaceBook, send out a Tweet and let all your friends back home know that you are still on the road and having a great time. Make them jealous! Relax inside with a fresh mug of coffee or take a short walk down to the river and toss a line in to catch your own dinner.
Johnson’s Crossing offers full service campsites with 20 and 30 amp power plus tent camping dry sites too.
Our STORE AND BAKERY features our famous giant cinnamon buns, cherry, apple, and blueberry turnovers, fresh baked butter tarts, fresh bread, and meat pies. Try some of our homemade hamburgers for lunch or supper, french toast, pancakes, bacon / eggs for breakfast and ask about some of the meals made from our our garden. All of our meals are home cooked and we can usually accommodate any special dietary needs.
Our souvenir shop includes books and maps, locally made handcrafts, blankets, locally bottled Birch Syrup, jams, jellies and more. Our stocks are always changing and if there is something that you would like but can’t take it with you, we will be happy to ship it to you.
