I have to start off by saying that we did not stay at the resort itself and I know that this page is most likely for the resort but there is no other place to post this information about Johnson Lake for the average person and they have to know what I have to say. From what we know, the resort itself is very well kept and very popular. It looked beautiful and it is recommended to book your stay early!

"THE CARIBBEAN OF THE NORTH"

Alright, so this is definitely true and once you reach the lake, you will be amazed by how clear the water is. Seriously its absolutely gorgeous and unbelievable.

First, lets talk about driving to reach Johnson Lake.. It is REMOTELY located between Barriere BC and Adams Lake BC. There are 2 routes to reach Johnson Lake.

#1, Google Maps recommended a route up through the Shuswap and Adams Lake. I will stop you here and say without hesitation DO NOT GO THIS WAY. The drive to Adams Lake is fine, but then you will reach a logging road (which seems wide and smooth at first) but then it becomes narrow, steep and dangerous. Not even joking, about after 10 minutes on the logging road you look to your right and its a 1000ft vertical cliffside drop to the lake. It is nearly impossible to turn around so we kept driving ahead, not talking, just focused on staying alive.

After about 30 minutes you will reach a fork in the road to turn onto Agate Bay Rd, or to continue on the Adams Forestry Service Road. If you've come this far, go on the Agate Bay Rd and this will lead you to the #2 Barriere route. We were unsure and we continued on the forestry road because that's what GoogleMaps said to do!

The drive only became worse, vertical drops on the side of the road and a rocky bumpy road were the worst parts of it. After another 30 minutes, you will take a sharp left turn and climb up a series of ridiculous switchbacks on the side of even more ridiculous Samatosum Mountain. You are literally driving straight up the mountain. ***By the way, we were in a 4x4 Xterra and it was managing the road but I can't imagine if we would have brought our cars...instant flat tire for sure.****

Anyways...The road becomes even worse than you can imagine and will frustrate you to your core. Seriously again, unless you are a thrill seeker and love literally living on the edge; don't go this way, even if you live in the area, take the other road through Barriere. People that drive this way, I have respect for you and I'm not trying to exaggerate this because this is honestly how I feel. We drive backroads for dirtbking in the Okanagan and this is on a whole nother level.

So finally we reach Johnson Lake, exhausted and overwhelmed. We were at the public end of the lake (where the campground is) but we decide to drive to the resort side of the lake (big mistake). You cannot access it unless you are a guest. So another 30 minutes were wasted driving up and down the sh**ty pothole filled road along the lake. Good luck with that; the potholes are massive and constant. And also FYI: the lake is extremely tree lined and steep along the edges, making it not only difficult to see the lake, but difficult to access. I don't even think you can access the lake either than the resort side and public side.

At the public/campground side of the lake the dirt road is narrow and there is no parking. We arrived around 12pm on a July afternoon and it was already busy. We regret not leaving at 5am in the morning from the Okanagan and getting here super early.

You park alongside the road outside the campground and then walk down into the overly crowded tiny campground to the lake. Remember how access to the lake was difficult? Well, there is no beach and legitimately there is a 10 foot wide rocky area where everyone launches their kayaks, paddleboards, boats, floaties, you name it.

Aside from all the negativity... the lake is truly unbelievable!!! We were shocked at the clearness and visibility. Truly amazing!!! Highly recommend going as early as possible because the lake was already wavy and rougher than expected which made our pictures average. We paddled around for quite a while on our paddleboards and everyone there was very friendly. The clear water where you can see the bottom extends about a hundred meters or so into the lake (its very shallow) then it becomes dark blue.

Satisfied but defeated, we left around 5pm and swore to drive through Barriere no matter how terrible is was (it couldn't be worse than the Adams Lake route). I really don't know how people drive down the Adams Lake Forestry Road. We are fairly experienced with rough backroads but it was something else. I don't even want to think about if anyone takes this road in the dark.

The drive down to Barriere was night and day difference. Road was wide and fairly smooth, no death drops beside the road and such. After a long drive, we returned home to the Okanagan and here's our conclusion:

Johnson Lake: If you've never been, its definitely worth the drive to see. It is an amazing place and the lake is unbelievable (warm too!!!) Go in the early morning in the summer. Do not travel the Adams Lake Forestry Road. But overall, I wouldn't go here all the time, maybe never even again. If we lived closer then yes but the long drive wasn't worth it. Staying at the resort would be absolutely beautiful and stunning.

If you’re searching for an up-close and personal Canadian wilderness experience, read on. If what you want is sanitized wilderness with room service, move on. There are several things you need to know about British Columbia’s Johnson Lake Resort. They include:

1/ Resort does not mean “resort” in the conventional understanding of the word. This is a fishing lodge with cabins and campsites. Although guests rough it in comfort, this is not a luxury lodge at $1,000-plus per day. Johnson Lake’s prices are modest and its accommodation is basic. Eight cabins of various sizes face the smallest of two spring-fed, naturally stocked trout lakes. The cabins have no televisions or dishwashers. Unless you have your own satellite connection, there’s no Internet or mobile phone service. At night, you can read or play cards under the light of a lantern, warm your tootsies on a wood stove, heat your wash-up water in a large pot on a propane-fueled stove, and take your choice of men’s and women’s outhouses with their flush toilets and hot showers.

Ah, but there’s more! Bring your own bedding, towels, grub, grog, and supplies and you’ll be fine. If you’ve forgotten your rod, lures, and net, you can rent them. If you want a motorized boat, you can rent that, too, or use a rowboat for free.

If you arrive wearing kitten heels and false eyelashes, you’ll wish you’d dressed for the rapidly changing weather at the lakes’ elevation of 1,160 meters (3,800 feet). You’ll also wish you’d brought appropriate footwear to explore the mountain paths, check out the late-spring trout spawning beds, or hike to the Howling Point summit.

The gravel road winding 38 kilometres (23-½ miles) to this mountain retreat is graded: Take it easy and take it slow and you’ll have no problem. The climb is gradual rather than steep, so motor homes and four-wheel drives arrive with equal aplomb. So that’s the tuff stuff. Now the great stuff, and yes, I do mean fishing (and more):

2/ Johnson Lake - actually two lakes, one large and one small - offer some of BC’s finest fishing. It is here that you’ll find the Kamloops Rainbow Trout, named for the nearby Interior BC city of Kamloops. These are beautiful fish: Watch them break water as they leap into the air; watch them laze in the shallows near the dock; study them as they school in the largest lake at depths of more than 10 meters (35 feet). Which brings up a point:

3/ Johnson Lake is one of the clearest lakes in all of British Columbia. With a depth of more than 60 meters (200 feet) at the center of the big lake, you’ll size up dinner a very long way down. The larger lake is turquoise; the smaller one, emerald. When the water is mirror-still, reeling in a fishing line is like ripping through silk. The fish eagerly snatch night crawlers (also called “dew worms”) from your hook, but also lunge at brightly colored Doc Spratley flies, frog flat-fish lures colored green-yellow-black, and the “Johnson Lake special” flies that Barb and Jim Lewko tie. The Lewkos have owned and managed this place since 1996. Johnson Lake trout are eager to please, snapping at pretty much anything that replicates the lake’s seasonal bugs. Which reminds me:

4/ Bring bug spray or eat plenty of garlic. Both repel mosquitoes. Healthy lakes with plenty of bugs usually have plenty of fish. Unlike some other parts of Canada, these interconnected lakes have no have aggressive, problem skeeters. A BC mozzie may sting - but it won’t nip or draw blood. This is trout fishing at its best. And hey, before I forget:

5/ If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise! If you go down to the woods today, you won’t believe your eyes …! Wildlife lovers will be mesmerized by critters large and small - some that pass by, and some that stop to visit. While the occasional moose has meandered in from the bush, more common are the black bears, deer, bobcats, and lynx. Each maintains a low profile but is definitely hanging out in the forest. On each of two mornings, my spouse and I awoke at 5 to the heavy gallop of an ungulate (look it up, Dollinks!) hoofing it past our cabin. Was it a moose? A mule deer? The guy in the neighboring cabin, racing for the outhouse? It will remain a mystery: We couldn’t find any tracks. Which is not to ignore:

6/ More than 40 species of birds. Bald eagles and their young soar on the thermals. Swallows dive at dusk and dawn to scoop insects dancing above the lakes. Pileated woodpeckers chop-chop-chop at dead stumps to find the bugs under their bark. BC’s provincial bird, the Steller’s jay, screeches raucous imprecations at strangers, quickly making friends with anyone offering peanuts. The Lewkos have identified more than half-a-dozen vocalizations among the jays, whose calls of oddle-oddle-oddle, clock-clock-clock, and squeaky-gate sounds have different meanings for different situations. The Jays’ mimicry of the eagles’ twitters and other birds’ calls are spot on. These many species of birds congregate in:

7/ A huge number of conifers draped in bearded moss like so many tattered rags on a line. The forest typically features spruce, pine, hemlock, and fir, as well as many deciduous trees that display autumn’s colors as the season advances. With the deepening of winter, ice forms on the lake, thickening to about 600 millimetres (two feet) so the locals can:

8/ Ice fish! If you want to do as the Romans do, go to Italy. If you want to do as Interior British Columbians do, visit Johnson Lake in January or February - snowmobile mandatory. The Resort is officially buttoned up for the winter, but ice anglers are hardy folk, and you’ll figure it out. You can be as solitary or social as you like in this magical place … Private or public, what’s it going to be? If you lean to the private, stare at the brightest night stars you’ll ever see outside an observatory. And speaking of public:

9/ In the early 1950s, just as the 60-year-old resort was becoming known, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby fished the larger of the two lakes. Each entertainer carved his name in a tree, to say that he’d been there. The carvings were a modest tourist attraction for many years. Legend has it that on October 14, 1977, the day Bing Crosby died, the tree that bore his name crashed to the ground. On July 27, 2004, the tree inscribed “Bob Hope” also fell. On that day, at the age of 100 years and two months, Hope succumbed to pneumonia. More, more, more:

10/ The Lewkos’ website at http://www.johnsonlakeresort.com will tell you all you need to know - about the children’s playground, about the communal fire pit, about the lodge, about getting there, about the cost of the cabins - that kind of thing.

For the weary city dweller, the Johnson Lake Resort is heaven on earth. Leave those kitten heels at home.

This was our 2nd time to Johnson Lake and I cannot say enough about the place. Jim and Barb 100% made us feel welcomed and absolutely went out of their way to make sure we had a great time.

It is rustic and that's what we love about it - no technology.

Last time we tented this time we were in a cabin and it was very cozy. There was a pretty good hail storm and couple of heavy showers (last week of June) so we were pretty grateful we opted for the cabin. Cabins are well equipped with glasses, dishes, pots, utensils, etc. The wood stove kept us toasty warm. They do have a small store for supplies if you need anything - so we were pretty grateful to be able to purchase more bug spray and have the luxury of ice-cream :)

Johnson Lake - AMAZING... the water, the turquoise beauty most people equate to the Caribbean. The fishing is wonderful. Just thinking about the fish is making my mouth water.

The rules are strict and are strictly enforced so make sure you read them. The rules are there for a reason for the safety and comfort of all guests. I can say for the most part the majority of campers are quite respectful, the ones that aren't Jim and Barb address immediately.

It is the kind of place you want to return to again and again... in fact when I feel stressed out back her in the city I can close my eyes and think of the stars, the quiet and the beauty and find my peace of mind again.

Thank-you Barb and Jim for making us always feel welcomed and part of the Johnson Lake Family.

Attempted to visit Johnson Lake with my family in July 2016. We went to the resort as we were told they had boat rentals available. We drove into the resort are, not realizing we were not suppose to. Got of our vehicle to go ask some questions. Before we could ask any questions, a man (owner) stopped us, asked if we had a reservation and then told us to back up and he would talk to us outside of the gate (which we could not see and was clearly left open), he proceeded to tell us that we were invading his privacy. He also mentioned several times that ever since some one wrote a blog about Johnson Lake thousands of people invade his privacy every year. My father tried to ask him a question about making a boat reservation and again he would not answer any questions until we moved our vehicles. He was very rude in front of my entire family including my very young niece and nephew (who asked what was wrong with the mean man). While Johnson lake may be gorgeous, the rudeness and lack of customer service will prevent me from ever attempting to visit Johnson Lake in the future. After speaking to some locals in the area - I've been told unless you make a reservation do not go to Johnson Lake.

I have been to this resort many times now and feel I have spent enough time here to give it an accurate and most thorough review. The first time in 2016 was enjoyable, we camped in a tent and had a private fire pit. The shower house was nice to have, it was quiet and the owners (Jim & Barb) were friendly. The second time we stayed in cabin 2, it was small and cozy, a roof over our head which was all we needed in the rainy months, although we were very disappointed about the cabin community fire pit, shared between all cabins, which offered no privacy. Fast forward to 2017, we stayed in cabin 5 in June, it was very cramped (which was expected) the bed was terribly uncomfortable, we ended up stacking the twin foam mattresses on it to make it more comfortable. The fridge was unreliable and half way through our trip we had to go into Barriere to restock on groceries, costing us a lot of money. The last time we were here, in August 2017 was TERRIBLE!!! We stayed in cabin 9, the only cabin with a bathroom and electricity (lights only no plugins). The two sofa beds were completely horrendous, thank god we brought air mattresses because you could not sleep on them. The pull out couch springs are all stretched and the mattress falls through the frame. The futon is so lumpy that it has a mound in the centre. Extremely disappointing when you have 2 couples expecting a decent sleeping situation. The shower would work intermittently, sometimes losing water pressure completely. The final straw was when my husband and his brother were on the boat fishing. Apparently to loudly according to Jim, who refers to Johnson lake as "his lake." So the men were fishing and come back to the site at 8pm, all is well, they come back to the cabin to eat and lights were out at 10pm. The next morning my husband and I walk to the lodge to ask for the phone, when Jim asks us to go into the lodge for a "talk" where he YELLED at us, threatening to kick us out of the resort for being too loud on the lake, embarrassing him and his wife. Reducing me to tears, it was completely unnecessary behaviour, it was intimidating and belittling. I am furious at how we were treated and will never come here again. When you spend $1700 to come to a resort, it was very disappointing. We were not loud on the lake, nor disrespectful, it was completely blindsiding and to be treated that way by someone who is running a business it was horrible.

Was wanting to spend some time on Johnson lake with the family. I called to ask if they would except 2 nights instead of 3 if it was last minute and the site wasn't booked. I was met with rude and aggressive behavior. Why wouldn't you want someone renting your site instead of it staying empty? hmm that makes sense. Lost my business and would recommend you get some better customer service skills.

This is a beautiful lake. There is a forestry campsite at one end and a privately owned "resort" at the other. The resort owners are difficult to get along with. One day they will be warm and fuzzy and the next they will threaten to kick you off their property. They made several mentions to the number of undesirables they are getting up there since a recent article circulated on the Internet. The cabins are small and very close together. The bath house is terrible. There is a communal fire pit that is regularly policed.

Not really sure where to begin I apologize for the long post but I feel it you’re going to put out the money they charge you should really read this. I am not one to just post reviews but this experience was absolutely mind blowing. I planned a 60th birthday camping trip for my mother in law and her best friend. A total of 11 people & 3 dogs coming up from about 6 hours away for Canada Day long weekend. I will add we had a 6 month old baby, a 3 year old and 2 pregnant women out of that group and we all are super respectful group. I had heard nothing but great things about the lake itself and the area. We decided to go with the resort vs provincial campground as my mother in law wanted a cabin. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Jim, the husband & owner, and he said “guess you guys can’t read” as we drove the trailer to the cabin to unload the many things we had instead of walking it across the entire campground. It was not the welcome we had expected and immediately put a bad taste in our mouths. As the night went on we were unloading etc and we let one of our dogs off leash (we had seen multiple dogs doing so, so we followed suit). He is a catahoula mix so I guess you could say he “looks” scary but he isn’t at all. Jim hunted down my father in law and got super agressive saying they absolutely do not stand for dogs off leash and he must be in hand at all times and that we will get kicked out if he catches us again (it we the first time). It was really unnecessary how angry and unfair he was being towards us as we saw many other large dogs off leash in the campground. We obviously complied and went on with our night. There is a communal fire pit for most of the cabins so that night we were all hanging out around there. Jim came by at approx 10pm with a hose and said last guy out please hose it down and we said of course and joked that he was telling us to call it a night and he insisted no of course not were all here to have a good time. At 11pm a guest from another cabin SCREAMED SHUT UP!!!! To us, so we obviously went to bed. we had no music playing and we’re just talking around the fire. Well, low and behold next morning Jim tracks us down and tells us quiet time is 10pm and it is unacceptable that we didn’t “read the rules” (which they didn’t even tell us about upon check in) and if we can’t obey the rules we’ll get kicked out .. at this point we feel as though they are super hostile towards us for no reason and we want to leave. One of the people we were with invited her friend up for a day (which according to their website is ok they just pay daily) and when we asked the day of, Barb the wife & owner got super frustrated saying “we can’t just do that” basically saying no. We have no service so we couldn’t call this person to tell her not to come up. After that we were planning to leave and I’m not sure where it came from but Barb changed her mind and apologized and said this friend could come up. So we decided to stay. Saturday night a new group of people had come up and they were 2 families with young kids & a dog so we were friendly and found out they have been coming up on and off for years and were friends with Barb & Jim and that they often are around the fire til 1 am with Jim infact. Well, their dog was off leash right in front of Barb & Jim and they never said a word about it. The unfair treatment we received from Barb & Jim is absolutely absurd. I can’t believe we paid a family money to be treated like the way we were. It was a completely hostile environment the whole weekend and we felt we were being watched and everything we did was wrong. I would never recommend this place to anyone based solely on how we were treated. thankfully we have a great family and we’re able to make the best out of a really negative situation. It was NOT the 60th birthday I had planned for them. On a side note, the lake is absolutely beautiful & if you want to camp there I strongly suggest the provincial campground on the other side of the lake away from the resort. They clearly only care about friends & family!

I felt compelled to write this after reading a recent review.
It should be mentioned that we were at the lake at that time but, only for a day of their visit.
The resort is rustic, We love a week there with no TV, cell or computers.
We bring up our camper and have a beautiful view of the small lake.

If you are booking please read the campsite rules as they will assist in making your stay an enjoyable one.

We have been visiting for many years. Our children were younger when we first started visiting.

What we appreciate about the resort:
Safe
Not a party site
Some years great fishing, some years you are going to have to work for your catch
Lakes are beautiful
Smaller resort
Nice campsites and cabins - clean and tidy
Lots of trails to explore

Love being able to bring our dogs. There are so many places that do not allow pets.

Please remember leash your dog in the resort area. There are many places off site to let them roam free.

Noise, the main fire pit for the cabins is close to the cabins. Be respectful of the 10 pm quiet time. Doesn’t mean you can’t sit out and enjoy the beautiful star filled nights, just means be aware other campers can hear you and after enjoying a day outdoors they may want to sleep!

Barb and Jim are friendly and fair. They are helpful but do keep their distance to let you enjoy your stay. They are always there if you need them.

We love to visit and wish we lived closer so that we were able to visit more often.
