Camping on the Mulberry River
Turner Bend Campground on the Mulberry River
The Turner Bend campground is directly across the road from our store and features 14 designated sites plus a small overflow area. Nine sites have shelters and all have picnic tables and fire rings.
We have restrooms with hot showers, picnic shelters, and plenty of parking spots. For the busy spring weekends we will take campsite reservations from our canoe rental customers only. We reserve the right to locate your group in the site that best suits the number of people in your group.
Please Keep in Mind:
- $10 per person per night
- By 11:00 p.m. campers must turn off stereos and generators and tone all noise down to a reasonable level.
- Off-road vehicle use limited to entry and exit only.
- ORV use on Highway 23 is illegal.
- Showers for non-campers available at $5 per person.
- Parking for non-campers taking out private boats at Turner Bend is across street along edge of campground, access is through campsite at end of campground along river. $10 fee per vehicle parked (pass must be displayed in window) covers boat access at campground site.
Round the Bend Campground
We have three group sites at our nearby Round the Bend property. Each site has a shelter, city water, picnic tables, and an outhouse. These are very desirable sites with more privacy and less highway noise than our main campground. No ORV-ATV use on this property. $10 per person per night.
