1.0 Redding to Turner Bend in kayaks is all we are offering
camping reservation
The Mulberry river is currently running very low. You have to walk through most of the shoals.  Pools are still deep enough to float. If you decide to make a float please wear sturdy shoes, bring plenty of water and sun block.    Redding to Turner Bend is a 4-mile float that takes about 3 hours to complete, longer if you want to play more. Summertime is here!

Hours of operation
Open Daily:  8 am - 6 pm
Boat rentals and shuttles for our fleet will begin at 9 am and end at 2 pm
No private shuttles until further notice.

Turner Bend COVID-19 Policy
Turner Bend has remained open this spring with many precautions in place.  Our store hours have been slightly reduced. Check our website daily for specific hours of opening. Store customers will be asked to practice "social distancing", and observe a limit of four customers in the store at any one time.

We are renting boats and are shuttling most of our rental customers. If you wish to avoid riding in our shuttle van then please bring two vehicles. Online reservations are necessary on busy days. Sorry no private vehicle shuttles until this threat passes. 

Our campgrounds are open. Online reservation is required so that we know how many people will be in our campground. Please understand that some phone calls might go unanswered during this time of limited staff. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
