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.

  • Lots of great hiking in this state park. We were there at a perfect time--great temperatures and not too crowded. The cabin we stayed and the food at the inn was good, but not great.

  • The entrance fee is 7$ per car (not per person) for Indiana and 9$ for non-Indiana residents. The park has a particular area if you want to camp with your family, a pretty safe place. This park has fantastic long trails with a spectacular views and nature. I highly recommend exploring trails 3, 5, and 9. The Falls Canyon is super adrenalin for adventurers with fascinating rocky surroundings. Suspension Bridge has a great view as well. (: Alongside hiking and camping, swimming in the river, fishing, and kayaking are also options to enjoy your time there. You can have a picnic too. Most of my time, I just wanted to sit and observe nature around me.
  • The best park in Indiana, my eyes for this beautiful gem of a forest in Marshall. I love the trails, the geysers, the rugged landscape and the tough and not so tough hikes. I have enjoyed the scenic beauty of each of natures creation and so enjoy hiking endlessly for hours mesmerized by Turkey run’s beauty. Ample parking, kids area, camping spots, an inn for campers and sufficient provisions for campers as well as hikers. There’s a $7 fee at the entrance and allows access to the entire park. You are given a good map and pamphlet which includes all details to the park. Lovely tourist spot!
