With impressive canyons, gorges, and ravines, Turkey Run State Park offers an abundance of natural beauty. Explore the park on foot or on horseback on one of many designated trails. You can also survey the park by canoe, kayak, or even in an inner tube floating down Sugar Creek. Right in the center of the park, the river is a great spot for fishing. Watch carefully for signs of wildlife, such as beaver-chewed trees and deer tracks--if you're lucky, you might spot some of the animals. Visit the nature center to learn about the park's flora, fauna, and geology.

Turkey run is a beautiful park with hikes suitable for all ages. Some hikes are a bit rugged and may not be great with small kids. We did trail 3 to 10.

We have never had a bad experience at Turkey Run. Of course, it's usually busy on holidays and weekends, but still always fun. The trails are great (Trail #3 is a must if you're up for an adventure...it's even better after there's been some rain for a few days before you go!), and my kids have a blast. Best way to get away from the world for a little bit. We try to go a couple times a year, and highly recommend it to anyone who asks!
