Johnson’s Mound is a heavily wooded classic example of a stratified gravel hill known as a “kame”, which was deposited by glacial ice and water some 10,000 years ago. This kame is a prominent feature on our mid-county landscape, rising 50 feet above the surrounding tributaries of Blackberry Creek and the glacial outwash plain. Much of the woods here is of nature preserve quality and there is a serenity in the deep woods that offers a special “get away from it all”, feeling for those wanting a quiet walk in the woods. Outside the woods is an open sledding hill, a five (5) acre mowed recreational area and a cabin on the edge, which is used for small gatherings.
