Travel to Turkeyville for Summer Fun

Family fun is commonplace at Cornwell’s Turkeyville – a welcoming Midwest destination complete with a dinner theater, restaurant, ice cream parlor, gift shop and RV Resort. Located in Marshall, Mich., Turkeyville offers visitors a chance to create core memories.

“Turkeyville is a special place because there are so many fun things to do,” says Patti Cornwell, director of marketing. “Family is what truly makes Turkeyville special. Built by family and still run by family, we take pride in everything we do.”

Camp Turkeyville RV Resort sprawls across 14 beautiful acres and offers a fishing pond, fully stocked general store, volleyball and basketball courts, and more.

“There are two heated swimming pools and more than 200 full hook-up sites with water, sewer and electric,” Cornwell says. “Plus, all of Turkeyville is right there. Staying at Camp Turkeyville is a one-of-a-kind experience with all the things you can do.”

That includes enjoying a professional performance at Cornwell’s Dinner Theatre, which hosts 40,000 guests throughout the year, Cornwell adds. Actors come from across the United States to showcase Broadway-level talent for musicals, comedy shows, hilarious murder mysteries and more.

This summer, “Escanaba In Da Moonlight” runs June 27-Aug. 3, and “The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe” runs July 14-July 31. A delicious home-cooked meal only enhances the experience.

“When you arrive at Cornwell’s Dinner Theatre, you will be seated in your reserved seats. The friendly staff will serve you soup and salad at your table, and then you will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal followed with dessert served at your table,” Cornwell says. “We still use all of Grandma’s original recipes and have added more family recipes to our menu. If you work here or are a customer visiting for the first time, you will feel right at home at Turkeyville.”

For matinees, doors open for seating at 11:30 a.m., the buffet opens at noon, and the show begins at 2 p.m. For evening shows, doors open for seating at 5:30 p.m., the buffet opens at 6 p.m., and the show begins at 8 p.m. Groups of 12 or more can call the box office at (269) 781-4293 for special group pricing.

Turkeyville’s restaurant features innovative menu items along with traditional favorites. As expected, turkey is a star fixture on the menu. There’s also a wide array of pies for dessert.
The ice cream parlor features an old-fashioned soda fountain with house-made ice cream that’s always fresh.

“We are committed to homemade and happy,” Cornwell says.

The Country Junction Gift Shop is a 23,000-square-foot paradise for shoppers, featuring a bakery and deli, gifts, souvenirs, holiday decor, and much more.

Throughout the year, Turkeyville also hosts special events such as flea markets, craft shows and plow days. A tractor show happening July 12-14 is a favorite summer event, Cornwell adds. More than 600 tractors will be at Turkeyville, with tractor games, tractor pulls, plowing demos, a silent auction and more.

“Turkeyville is such a wonderful place to be,” Cornwell says. “Working here is fun because most of the people who work here are hardworking and love to laugh and have fun.”
This summer, Turkeyville’s restaurant, ice cream parlor and gift shop are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
