History

Johnsons was a settlement in the former Klamath County, California. A fairly isolated and small Yurok ancestral village, Johnsons is located within the Yurok reservation along the Klamath River and is known for its excellent fishing and serenity. Electricity has not yet made its way to this community; instead, there has been a long standing utilization of solar & generator power.
