Turner Bend COVID-19 Policy
Turner Bend remains partially open, but many of our employees have been furloughed. Our store hours will be reduced and the store will likely be closed on Mondays for restocking and cleaning. We will pick a rainy day to close therefore check our website daily for specific hours of opening. Store customers will be asked to practice "social distancing."

Boat rentals will be limited. Be prepared to shuttle the people while we shuttle the boats so bring two vehicles. Online reservation is a must so that we can get staffing on busy days. No private vehicle shuttles. Our cabins remain open and we are increasing our already thorough cleaning.

Our campgrounds remain open. Online reservation is required so that we know how many people will be in our campground. Please understand that many phone calls will go unanswered during this time of limited staff. Currently Wolf Pen, Redding Campground and Shores Lake Campground are closed.

For the month of April Turner Bend cabins will only be available for Arkansas residents here on business and emergency personnel.

Thank you for your cooperation.
