We stayed here five days in site 16 which backed up to the lake. Beautiful park and would stay at it again if in the area. Did not use the facilities, so can not review them. Some of the loop turns are quite tight. Great value for the money !!! We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Dined at Rosies, and in Hattiesburg at Cracker Barrel....Walmart in Wiggins.

We can in from I-59 over small twisty narrow roads with small hard to see signs. Not good. Easy to get lost even with aid of google map. Better to approach by highway 49 as the campground entrance is right off it. The campground is spread out by a large lake with a great view for most sites. Sites and roads well paved. Some sites are level, many not quiet level. Very clean rest rooms and showers. Sites with Electric Sewer & Water. We were an overnight stay. Great value at $14 plus 91 cents tax. A good campground to spend several days. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight while passing through. It was out of the way (about 7 miles from 98) for one night but we hoped it would be quiet. It was for the most part but weirdly we could hear traffic noise from somewhere (maybe 49?) mainly early in the morning. Once you enter the park, it's a good 5 minute drive to get to the campground. You cross over a couple short bridges/spillways before getting to the office on the right. The pull thru we opted for was long enough but narrow. It had 2 consecutive concrete pads as if one was added at a later time. We were able to get our satellite to work without a problem. They have an unusual assortment of rental "cabins". Some are brick and appear older while others have very colorful siding like yellow and blue. I imagine the lake is the big draw. BTW - one of the clerks recommended that we leave the back way which is shorter mileage-wise. Beware - very tight clearance at the guard gate for large units. We saw evidence that it had been hit a couple times. Also, the roads are extremely narrow with little to no shoulder. Unless you are in a hurry, going out the front entrance is a better idea. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

Almost perfect park. 9 instead of 10 because the pull through sites are so close together we couldn't put out our awning without touching neighbors slide out. Disc Golf, hiking, boating, cabins, and very nice picnic pavilions. Completely full weekend before Halloween. Back-in sites are larger with picnic tables. Lakefront sites have beautiful views. Love this park. Be sure to spray hoses with ant killer or you might have some uninvited guests. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Paul Johnson State Park campground offers level, FHU, cement RV sites that overlook very picturesque Geiger Lake. We are a self-contained unit so we don’t know about available park showers/restrooms. Entry to the campsite area is over a spillway that could be a problem if there were to be heavy rains/flooding in the area. The park office is on the right about ½ mile past the very obvious spillway. The main entry gate was not manned and we were told to drive into the park for the park office. The closest large grocery store is approximately 12 miles from the park and golf is 7 miles away. Site reservations can be made on line or by calling the park phone. Our park rate is based on the fact that this reviewer is over 65. During the summer season we would think this place is very popular and crowded so reserve early. They use trustees from a local prison/jail to maintain the park. We would use this campground again. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice well maintained state park. Bathhouse facilities have seen better days. Some recently rebuilt and other are just atrocious. Paved roads and concrete pads. We have stayed here many times, but the newest staff just is not as friendly as the old. Getting anything done in the office is very difficult. But when we needed help on our site they were Johnny on the spot. The lake is stocked each year and fishing off the piers is good. We will return to this park for sure.

This has always been a wonderful park, but not this time. We stayed in the new campgrounds. Power problems. 50 amp had one leg almost unusable . If we put a minor load on power would from 120 to 109 volts. We cut our stay short for fear of burning up electric motors. if they get the power right it would be a great place. most campers don't have meters to give them electric information . We were in a motor home . We had a similar problem when we stayed there 7 weeks earlier, made 5 phone calls with hope they would repair --- but no luck. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.
Nice park with beautiful lake and shade. Would have given it a higher rating, but somewhat dirty campsites where campers burn garbage in fire spots and too many golf carts with loud music running around. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second stay at this campground. It is really nice. A great place to ride bikes and several trails to walk. Customer service is good. We would stay here again. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Girl that checked us in was not friendly or helpful but the park is really nice. We used the washer & dryers-$1.50 each. Swim beach is nice. We would stay here again. Rate is the senior rate. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We camp here quite often and almost always have a great time. We camped in site 83 this time, great location, easy access to pier and the water, easy backing in, lots of room. This is an old campground but kept up. This sited was level and required no additional equipment.. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
I would have given this park at 10 except that our cabin could have been cleaner. The floors needed to be swept and mopped (it appeared that they hadn't been cleaned before we got there). Some of the dishes (that were in the cabin and assumed to be clean) were not clean. Other than that, the park was great. They have a splash pad for the kids (extra charge) and a lake with roped off swimming area. There are playgrounds, lots of trees, video games and pool tables in the office area. Just an overall great, family oriented place. We would come back here in our MH. We drove through the park. It's huge and lots of very lovely sites to choose from. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Campground Cabin.

We were using this as a place to stop for the night on our way from SC to Houston, TX We had site #50 on 2nd loop. The campsite that we had was right near the dock with a great view of the lake and a large grassy area beside us. The kids loved playing on the grass and on the dock. There are also geese here who obviously have been fed by campers because they come up to the camper. However, they did not scare or bother us. Probably because they found food from another camper! We had reservations and we are glad that we did. The campground was nearly full because the schools in the New Orleans area were out for the week for Mardi Gras. So, many families from New Orleans got away for the week to camp! The campers here were very nice and friendly. Besides families with children, there were many seniors here camping as well. We were able to burn a campfire at our campsite on a cleared area but there is no fire ring. The lake water was very high. It looks like they have gotten a lot of rain. In the morning, a storm did pass through us with hard rain and hail. Our campsite flooded during the storm (or I would have rated an A and not a B). Thank goodness we were in our pop-up trailer and not our tent! The bathrooms had warm showers and were acceptable. They could use a little updating. I think they get a lot of use since this seems to be a well used park. The bathhouse is set back from the camping loop a little. So, a little bit of a walk up a hill, but not too far. I rate the view an “A” because our site was right on the lake (and many here are). Also, we had a lot of space next to our campsite that was grassy. There are many several things to do at the park including swimming at the lake, boating and canoeing. Also, there is a playground. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Boring park in the fall. Not sure if it's better in the summer unless the water level is higher. Only one hiking trail with dangerous bridges and walk-ways. Parked in what is termed a pull-through, but only entry is paved. Luckily had the toad disconnected so we could pull out. Bath house is a distant walk and has no changing area. We camped at Paul B Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.
