Swimming, picnic areas open
The swimming and picnic areas at the Johnson Branch unit of Ray Roberts Lake State Park are currently open after an extended closure due to flooding. However, the swim beach is still under flooded conditions so swimmers should proceed with caution, according to information posted to the park’s social media.
All boat ramps are open with the exception of Buck Creek.
The Johnson Branch unit is off Farm-to-Market Road 3002 (East Lone Oak Road), southeast of Valley View. For more information about the facilities, call 940-637-2294.
