JOHNSON’S SHUT-INS

Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park offers camping, a newly constructed visitor center, as well as trails and scenic views. The term “shut-in” refers to a place where the river’s breadth is limited by hard rock that is resistant to erosion. In these shut-ins, the river cascades over and around smooth-worn igneous rock, creating a kind of natural water park that can be used by park visitors when water levels are not dangerously high. The 2 mile Shut-Ins trail provides access to the shut-ins area. Inquire at the park office about the hiking trail. Swimming is allowed in the shut-ins at your own risk.

The “shut-ins” are made of granite, where the less dense rock formations have eroded away from around them over time.
