Arkansas Canoe Club


The ACC has reserved the entire Turner Bend "Round the Bend" Campground for the weekend.  Camping starting on Friday is free to all ACC Members.  If you arrive before Friday you will need to check in with the Turner Bend Store and pay for camping. 

All participants,  volunteers as well as those just there for the fellowship must check-in at the event entrance and have a signed waiver on file.  Check-in should begin about 2:00 PM on Friday.

There is a lot more space to spread out at the Round the Bend site.  However, we discourage the use of RV's and campers and we ask that anyone bringing an RV or camper pick a spot in the open area to the left of the entrance road we have designated for RV and Campers.  Note that there are no RV utility hookups.

The facilities at the Round the Bend site will include porta-potties for men and women and a flush toilet but as of this writing there are no showers.  You are encouraged to bring your own personal solar shower if you like.    

Fresh, potable water is located next to the pavilion.  Campfires must be in designated fire pits.

Campground Quiet Hours are from 11:00 PM til 6:30 AM.  That said, we've learned that "quiet" is a relative term.  So this year we will designate an area for those who like to stay up a bit later and talk around the campfire etc.  Paddlers (and Instructors) need their rest to be able to enjoy the classes.  Please respect these quiet hours and quiet zones.  For those who need it dead quiet to sleep, we'd recommend ear plugs. 

If this is not acceptable, you can always camp elsewhere in the area.  

Each year we get complaints about dogs at Whitewater School.  While not banned, we ask that you seriously consider leaving Fido at home.  If you must bring your dog, he or she must remain leashed, or otherwise contained.  Also, no one wants to camp in and around dog poo, so "walk" your dog well away from camp and pick up after your pooch.  Those who ignore these rules will be asked to leave camp.  Also, campers with dogs that bark excessively, or are aggressive will need to find other accommodations.
