This was a beautiful venue and Gary and Julie were amazing to work with. They happily answered questions, provided planning information and tips, and let us visit the venue 3 different times for decorating planning. The guests loved the venue and commented on it's beauty. It is very family and kid friendly, which was exactly what we were looking for for the wedding. Cost was very reasonable as well! And they did the set up and take down of all tables and chairs, too. Could not be happier and would highly recommend Camp Turnaround for any event!Sent on 08/25/2018

We held our granddaughter's wedding at Camp Turn Around. Julie was so helpful and wonderful right from our first appointment.Sent on 08/12/2015
We selected this venue as they only schedule one event per day and we had it for our use from 9:00 AM until 10:00PM (we purchased 2 additional hours until 12:00 PM)
It is located right by the beautiful Wilson River.
There are indoor/outdoor buildings and spaces for every kind of weather Oregon can throw at you.
They have a playground activities for guests use. Our friends and family loved playing basketball and doing other activities.
Julie was always available to answer our questions & got back to us quickly.
She provided help, suggestions and support on the wedding day making our event run smoothly. Thanks Julie....you helped us make special memories!
Camp Turnaround's reply:Thank you, Gayle! It was a pleasure to celebrate with your family here along the Gales Creek!

Julie the venue owner was great! There was a slight panic moment when my wedding band fell under the bridge... Julie did not hesitate to change her clothes and climb down in the bushes to get my ring back! They are great people and made our day wonderful! The venue is beautiful and can be customized to make your day 100% yours!Sent on 08/23/2015
Camp Turnaround's reply:Thank you Crystal! You were all awesome and it was not a problem to retrieve your ring! Glad to be able to help!

This place was BEAUTIFUL. Julie the event manager was AMAZING!!! Very helpful with all my emails. As a new bride I had a MILLION questions and emailed her probably fifty times. She was so helpful!!! And I kept apologizing for all the questions and she made me feel as if I wasn't bothering her. I HIGHLY recommend camp turnaround as a venue for everyone!!Sent on 09/19/2014
Camp Turnaround's reply:Thank you Dacia, it was a pleasure working with you!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Camp Turnaround on a beautiful summer sunny day on July 27th, 2014. I loved everything about my venue and I got many compliments on the location! I wish it wasn't 45 minutes away from the majority of our guests, but it was worth the drive. The white chairs and tables were great, and Julie and her team did a great job setting up the morning of. Julie, the owner, was also very helpful through the entire process. Whenever I emailed her, she would get back to me very quickly, as well as she helped me and my bridesmaids with last minute set up the morning of! I love that Camp Turnaround is very flexible with food and drink, not making us use their "preferred caterers". I felt like my wedding was truly what I had imagined and even more. Like a previous comment, I wish there was a cabin on-site to keep the party rolling :)Sent on 08/23/2014

I'm really glad we found a fantastic outdoor spot with variety to keep all ages entertained!Sent on 08/24/2014

Hands down, the best place to get married if you're looking for an outdoor venue that has it all--for all ages, for all tastes. So many people have come up to me after our wedding and have said "that was the most fun I'd ever had at a wedding" and I attribute a LARGE part of that to the venue itself. Julie and her team do a marvelous job--they are professional, kind, and incredibly ON IT. You email them and Julie is back to you within minutes and at the latest by end of day. I highly recommend this venue for any bride and groom looking for a beautiful outdoor place. Julie, if only you had cabins on the property where we could all crash--that would have been the icing on the cake. Beautiful venue, couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you again!Sent on 07/02/2014

Had my wedding here on April 12th 2014! Such a beautiful venue!! Julie is great, very helpful! Price is reasonable! Definitely would recommend and it is worth the drive. All of my family raved about how beautiful the ceremony space was as well as the reception area. I wanted to respond to some of the other issue mentioned in the other reviews because I looked at these reviews before deciding on this venue. Bridal cabin was perfect had lots of mirrors chairs and bathroom. Grooms cabin was simple but had the necessities for men to get ready it had chairs and a large mirror good lighting. Table and chairs were set up when we arrived in the morning at 10am on the day of. Noise and sound was not an issue. Our DJ plugged everything in to the main outlet so no power issue during ceremony or reception. Did not hear any shotguns or even notice the sound of the road. We had a beautiful wedding and would not change a thing! Anyway highly recommend this place : ) happy venue huntingSent on 04/22/2014

Campturn around was such an amazing place to have our wedding, it was the first and only place we looked at and immediately loved it! The staff was so helpful and wonderful to work with! I would recommend campturn around for anyone looking for a wedding venue or gathering! And a huge plus was the landscaping and access to the creek as well.Sent on 08/08/2013

I liked the fact that we had the site for the whole day. The family got there with plenty of time to decorate. All our guests just kept asking, "how we found this place? " because they thought it was great.Sent on 04/29/2013

This venue was so absolutely gorgeous....even the drive out there was beautiful!!! Julie and the crew provide amazing possibilities for whatever your dream wedding might be. The grounds are so wonderful for guests to stroll through, kids can play, incredible backdrops for pics. My wedding was more than I could have ever dreamed of and the execution flawless and I know part of that was the support and organization provided by Camp Turnaround. Julie was always available and always patient with my questions and needs. She sent out a 2 month reminder so I wouldn't forget what was needed by then, in the midst of frantic details! Her kindness and collaboration was a gift to an overwhelmed bride (even tho I had been married before). For a gorgeous setting and lots of choices check out Camp Turnaround...a little piece of heaven outside of Portland"Sent on 05/03/2013

We had an amazing wedding at Camp Turnaround. Julie was very helpful throughout the entire process and was very accomidating and reassuring whenever I had questions or concerns. If you are looking for a beautiful setting that won't break your budget, this place is for you. Everyone had a great time and I heard from tons of people that my wedding was FUN, and that's really all you can hope for, right? The only slight negative I can even think of (and it's not really that big of a deal) is the bathroom facilities for guests are portable toilets and not actual bathrooms. Some people are really squirmish about them, but I didn't hear any complaints from any of my guests. Hopefully sometime in the future they will be able to put in permanent bathrooms (I know they can be super spendy!). Thank you again for the amazing wedding that we will never forget!Sent on 10/06/2012

The couple running Camp Turnaround are absolutely amazing! They are incredibly helpful and have worked so hard to maintain a BEAUTIFUL facility. I would strongly recommend anyone hosting an event at this site.Sent on 08/21/2012

Camp Turnaround is an absolutely beautiful location to get married at. I would highly recommend this location to any couple who would like a quiet, private, and beautiful place to get married. My husband and I were so happy with all that this place provided, the location is so gorgeous that the decorating was a breeze. It was also a time and money saver to not have to try and make things look beautiful when they already were. Julie and Gary were a huge help in the process and were extremely thoughtful. I would get married there again in a heartbeat.Sent on 08/26/2012

My husband and I recently had our wedding here at Camp Turnaround. We couldn't be happier with our entire experience with this venue! Julie and Gary were sooo helpful with everything! We were able to have our ceremony outside and transition straight into the reception inside the pavilion without a hitch. I LOVED the rustic feel of this venue and being so close to the creek you can get great photos too!!! We had lots of kids at our wedding and with their small playground they had tons to do! I would recommend this venue to anyone in a heartbeat!Sent on 08/28/2012

Julie was wonderful and helped me out through some sticky situations that happened, which had nothing to do with her or the place. Everything was beautiful! All of my family and friends felt at home there and everyone enjoyed how open it was... we had many kids and toddlers and they were able to have so much fun there too... running around, looking at the ponds, enjoying the swings and park area. Loved how private it was... no one else there but our guests. We were able to have family gather early in the day and have a bbq, hangout and enjoy the site casually before the wedding. I had plenty of time to get ready, me and all my girls had a blast together in the bridal room. I think Camp Turnaround is perfect for a lovely wedding, any style you would want is possible there. My Husband and I are very glad we chose to bring our families and close friends together that day at Camp Turnaround. It was special, and just how I wanted it! Thank you Julie for opening your beautiful home to us :)Sent on 08/08/2012
