Turner Fish Camp

Postby junglecat » Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:51 pm

Turner Fish Camp to reopen on the Withlacoochee River under new ownership . It has been a landmark on the River for decades that burnt down several years ago. It was always a pit top when running the loop or a draw stop on Poker Runs.

That's good to hear. Do you know of a date that it will reopen?

If asking price for Sleepy Hollow is what I heard , it ain't never going to happen. 8x the price of Turner Camp and Turner Camp is larger property.

I heard from a realtor that someone was looking but with asking price and up grade to sewage system sale didn't go thru . Hopefully someone will purchase it and bring it back .

That is good news to hear about Turner being open that soon. Why did Sleepy shut down? I was told ATF shut them down but not sure how reliable that information is.

Heard basically the same. Heard after they were told , went ahead and make a huge purchase from Sams and stayed open. Not sure if that's true but no attempt to reopen

Jungle,

Actually both are really good places and i'm out of touch with the biker crowd these days for either place making it a success! All I know is turner had some issues with bank side sales and sleepy ran out of food/beverage by 3 pm constantly?
