Turner Bend COVID-19 Policy
Turner Bend remains open.  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 still renting boats.  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. Sorry no private vehicle shuttles until this threat passes. 

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

Thank you for your cooperation.
