Turner Lake Park Information

ALCOHOL IS NO LONGER ALLOWED AT TURNER LAKE
Turner Lake Park (5203 Holly Street) was deeded to the City of Turner by Crawford Crossing LLC on April 11, 2018. Formerly the Riverbend Quarry, it had filled with ground water over the years, and would now become a park for the greater Turner community. The City obtained a $382,000 grant from Oregon Parks & Recreation for construction of a boat ramp and docks, restrooms and other amenities, with a "soft opening" the summer of 2020. Popular beyond anyone's dreams, the park continues to be developed and refined.

Turn-n-Paddle is renting kayaks and SUP at Turner Lake Park, Sat-Sun: 11-6pm (Dependent on weather conditions) through the end of September. Rentals are $20/hr.

The boat ramp is now open and electric motors are allowed, with the entire lake a no wake, 5 mph speed limit, 14 Foot length limit.

Fishing is allowed from boats or the bank. You must have a current valid fishing license to fish. You may keep any fish caught.

Park is open dawn to dusk every day unless the gate is closed. 

Shelter is used on a first-come, first-used basis; no reservations needed.
