Turner Bend COVID-19 Policy
Turner Bend has remained open this spring and summer with many precautions in place.  Our store hours have been slightly reduced. Store customers are asked to practice "social distancing", observe a limit of four customers in the store at any one time, and wear masks as per state law.

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. Masks will be required in the shuttle vans. Online reservations are necessary on busy days. 

Our campgrounds are open. Online reservation is required so that we know how many people will be in our campground. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
