Mulberry River Canoe, Kayak and Raft Rentals

We rent 16′ tandem Buffalo canoes, solo sit-on-top kayaks, 2 man rafts, and 4 man rafts. Our canoes are made of durable ABS plastic. Each tandem canoe is equipped with a large block of styrofoam for flotation which decreases the likelihood of damaged boats. High quality jackets and paddles are provided for each boat. We also have several "overall style" wetsuits available for rent. Wetsuit reservations will be taken from canoe rental customers only. No prepayment necessary. Rate is $15.00 per day.

Rental Rates

Trip prices per boat are listed on the Rental Prices Webpage. These prices include life jackets, paddles, shuttle charges, and all applicable taxes. Trip costs vary with the length of the trip.

Reservations & Refund Policy

Mulberry River floats and camping are very popular during the spring and summer months. Most of our water comes in the months of March, April, May, and June. Reservations are recommended especially for weekend visits. If you have a favorite campsite, please book it online or call us.

SECURING YOUR BOAT RENTAL

Boats reservations made in advance are paid in full for a 4-mile trip at the time of reserving. If you are planning to reserve for a group each leader of a group can book online for specified number of boats or call us, our staff at the Turner Bend Store will group you at the time of the trip. A valid Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card or American Express is required to hold your reservation. If a boat reservation is made within 48 hours of your scheduled launch date, full payment is required.


FINAL PAYMENT

The balance of your account is due at the time you complete your contract in our office prior to launch.

CANCELLATIONS must be made 7 days prior to your arrival for floating. If proper notice is received we will refund your deposit, less a 10% charge. If proper notice is not received, you forfeit your deposit paid. To cancel, call our store staff during our business hours at 479-667-3641.

RESERVATIONS NOTES
Online reservations are recommended for spring weekends. A deposit of a 4-mile trip is required at the time of the reservation and we will hold your boat until 11 a.m. Reservation without deposit is a first come basis. Our recommendation is to arrive early by 9:30 if you do not have a reservation.

REFUNDS/ADJUSTMENTS
Turner Bend Outfitter does not issue refunds or adjustments due to factors out of our control, e.g. weather, illness, personal reasons or early check-out. Prices and policies are subject to change without notice. Turner Bend Outfitter reserves the right to correct any pricing errors without refund.


TOO-LOW- or TOO HIGH TO-FLOAT RIVER CONDITIONS

If a boat rental deposit or full payment has been made and we have determined that the Mulberry River is too low (below 1.2 feet) or too high (over 4 feet of water) to float we will refund the full amount charged to your credit card. We try to make you aware of the non floatable river conditions in advance of your arrival, but it is always wise to call us prior to that date or check our Current Mulberry River Level for an update. We want you to have an enjoyable experience.

PET POLICY

We welcome your pets. All dogs must be on a leash in the campground. We do limit each site to 2 pets. We charge $10 per pet, per night in the campground. There is an additional $10 charge for any pets that float with you. Please note that dogs can cause a boat to capsize.

Renter Policy

RENTER LIABILITY Renters are responsible for the care of boats and gear until it is in our possession. Normal wear of canoes is expected but excessive damage must be paid in full by the renter. Lost paddles or jackets must be paid for by the renter.

RESPONSIBILITY Renters will be required to sign a liability release as part of the standard rental contract. Understand that canoeing the Mulberry is a potentially dangerous activity. We will provide you with the best equipment and advice available. However, once you put on the water, your skill and good judgement take over. Please exercise caution.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND
All rental boats must be off the river by 7 pm. Extra charge will apply if you check in late or if we have to go get you. All private boats must be out by 7pm. We lock the gate at 7 pm. Across the store parking lot is open 24 hours. You may consider parking over across the store parking lot if you are running late.
