I remember it. I also remember the chic, I think her name was Candy Roberts, that jumped her motorcycle in the lake.

Rumor was going around for weeks prior that she was going to "jump her motorcycle across Johnson's mountain".
What a flop, she jumped like 20-30 feet out in the lake and it was over.

I remember! Loved that place...good times there..actually had a majorette performance there once...nothing simple like that around now. Every Friday we would have pizza delivered from there and watch chiller..then Saturday we would go fish at the lake...indeed those were fun times! Great blast from the past :)

I loved David Johnson, the man was good to people, had pool tables and arcade games, I still hear them now, and Hank Williams playing on the box! the place was the perfect place you'd want your kids to hang out there!I saw what's left now and it's sad that it wasn't kept up ! We need places like that again!!

Yes we do! Sad what it has become...life is too fast paced for the simple things it seems..golden moments are cherished by little knock about places like Johnsons Mountain

Sorry Guys it not reopening at this time. The building has been torn down. Maybe someday it will reopen. There has been talk of rebuilding though.
