Accommodations

The ACC has reserved the entire Turner Bend Campground for the weekend.  All participants, volunteers and hangers on must register, have a signed waiver on file and wear and event wrist band.  

The facilities include bathrooms for men and women. There is one shower in each bathroom with only one hot water heater, so plan accordingly. The Arkansas Canoe Club will have additional Port-a-potties available for the weekend. Water is located by the store and in the camping area. Turner Bend may have some firewood, but it is best to bring your own charcoal or stove. Camping space is limited and people just camp wherever they can find a spot. In order to alleviate overcrowding in the main campground, we ask you not to bring tents that are bigger than you need.  Turner Bend has an area for overflow camping located just a short distance away. Individuals wanting a quieter spot or a little more “elbow room” are encouraged to camp there. Directions to the overflow camping area are available at the Turner Bend store.

All camping fees at Turner Bend for Friday morning to Sunday afternoon are covered by the ACC. If you choose to arrive early or stay late, please pay Turner Bend their normal fees.

Parking is limited and is a growing problem at Turner Bend. Please do not bring large RV, Camping/Pop-up Trailers, or other trailers for camping purposes.

There are hotels available in Ozark and other lodging is nearby, including Mulberry Mountain Lodging and Camping for those who do not wish to stay at Turner Bend.
