We stay at Paul B Johnson State Park a couple times a year. We love the relaxing atmosphere and the kids have so much fun. The cabins are definitely state park rustic. The furnishings are all plastic covered. This definitely makes sense due to it...More

With a hurricane approaching we were able to sneak in for Labor Day Weekend '17 due to last minute cancellations. Really enjoyed our 1 week stay. Huge site(111), w/full hook-ups and great view of lake. Will definitely return.

Every year several friends get together and spent the Labor Day weekend with each other to round out another year of South Mississippi fun on the water. It goes without saying that we are always satisfied with the park and it's always clean and well...More

Yes, dogs are allowed in the park - they must be on leash !! I am not sure if the dogs are allowed in the swimming area.
