THE UPPER PART OF THE MULBERRY TO TURNER BEND SHUTTLE
If you own your own boat, you can book a 'ride along' shuttle service online or in the store. Shuttle fee includes a parking permit for 1 vehicle and 1 complimentary access wristband to take out or put in at the Turner Bend Landing or across from the store. Access fee does not include the boat lift nor loading/unloading private boats.
If you arrived at the Turner Bend with 1 boat, the best option would be to purchase a shuttle. You have the option of loading your boat onto our trailer and we will take you to the put-in point or our driver can do a 'ride along' by hopping in the vehicle with you to the put-in point and take your vehicle back to Turner Bend. This fee will include a parking permit for 1 vehicle and 1 access wristband to the take out your boat at our landings.
If you have multiple boats, the most cost effective way is to buy a 'ride along' shuttle--meaning you will pick up one of our driver; he/she then, will ride with you to the put-in, you unload your boats and your people, our driver will then drive your vehicle back to Turner Bend and parked it across from the store. You will specify where you want your key to be placed. This fee will include a parking permit for 1 vehicle, 1 access wristband to take out your boat at our landings. The 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. . . boats do not have to pay for the shuttle however they do need to purchase wristband access for each person to take-out or put-in at our landings.

9 am on your scheduled date; our staff will follow you to Campbell or Mill Creek in our vehicle; when you arrived at the take-out point, park your vehicle and walk down to the river to take note of the landscape marking of the river take out where your trip will end, so that you don't over shoot the take out point. We will then take you back to the Turner Bend landing for you to start your trip.
We recommend that you book your private shuttle online with specific instruction written in the "special request" section when and where you want the shuttle service to be. It gives our drivers a heads-up to be available on the scheduled date.
When you have a big group the most cost effective is to book a 'ride along' shuttle and buy extra access wristbands for your friends to access the Turner Bend Landing. However, on the busy weekends, sometime we do not have a driver to do the 'ride along' shuttle. In such case, you can drive your friends and their boats to the put-in, drop them off with their boats and only one person drive back to Turner Bend to book a shuttle. We then will take you to the put-in point.
You can purchase a shuttle, additional access wristbands, and parking permits in store or online.
