Johnson City is named after one of LBJ's relatives (I believe his granduncle). LBJ’s father was in real estate but also was a representative for the town at the state capitol for a number of years
The exhibits also showed life as a rancher and owning the Texas Longhorns. There were two on the historic site near the original settlement of his grandfather’s farm.
Our campground was located in Johnson City so we did not have far to travel and tomorrow we are headed west stopping first at the LBJ Ranch for a tour. Today was a beautiful sunny day but it was hot and humid in the high 80’s.
Review of campground:
Tuesday, March 12 Roadrunner RV Park, LLC, Johnson City, TX This park is right off hwy 281 and 290 in Johnson City, TX. We stayed here for a night so we could visit the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park in Johnson City. The next day we are headed west to visit the other part of the park the LBJ Ranch 15 miles west towards Fredericksburg. The park has 44 pull through sites with full hookups, 10 new spacious sites with 50 amps for big rigs and 18 back in sites. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry only had one machine but it was new, fast and only a $1.00. When we checked in the owner had baked some chocolate chip cookies and they were so good right out of the oven.
There is no cable here but they do have free Wi-Fi, a market, restaurants and ACE hardware all within walking distance. There is a winery within a mile. It was a good stop!
