Effective close of business January 20, 2014, Turner River canoe launch will be closed to commercial operations and ranger-led activities due to receding water levels.

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

Commercial operators that are permitted to use Halfway Creek will move their operations to that site.

To assist in minimizing impacts the National Park Service recommends that all other visitors use Halfway Creek as an alternative to Turner River.
