Call of the Wild

Call of the Wild was opened in May of 1965 by Carl and Hattie Johnson and is now run by their three children. The Johnson family believes community, family, and education are important for everyone. Call of the Wild has been a family tradition, not only for the Johnson family, but also for the families who visit year after year. In 1986, the Bavarian Falls Park was built, continuing to make the location a family destination.
