Effective close of business March 10, 2014, Turner River canoe launch will be closed to all activities due to low water levels.

This management action is being implemented to minimize potential impacts to the resource and ensure a quality visitor experience.

Commercial operators who are permitted to use Halfway Creek have moved  their operations to that site. The National Park Service recommends that all other visitors use Halfway Creek as an alternative to Turner River.
