I have stayed at Turkey Run many times my favorite cabin is The Overlook as it was perfect when the kids were in their teens and bringing friends. You can bring your own food and cook to save money as the restaurant is ok for maybe a breakfast but it can get too costly. They have a indoor pool and... More

Been here numerous times but felt compelled to review Turkey Run State Park this time. The park is always so clean, even though it's generally pretty busy, and even the campground is tidy, with clean bathrooms and shower houses and well-kept sites. The visitor's/nature center is small but informative and provides a nice break after some of the most aggressive... More

We were looking for an adventure and we found it here! There are a lot of great trails and they take you through streams and up or down ladders so you need to be prepared. Definitely a great workout! We also came back the next day and tubed down the river. That was tough in some places because the water... More

My husband and I camped at Turkey Run SP campground last weekend and had a great time. The campground had alot a shady sites which is important to us in the heat of the summer. Every morning the campground restrooms were cleaned and the personnel were very courteous. When it was time to check out and use the dump station,... More

A fun visit for family and friends. This park offers an Inn and hotel, dinning, courts,swimming pool camping, canoe trips, hiking trail, and a lot of scenic views. Less animal life than other parks surrounding the area. It has electric hook-ups for RV and Tents campgrounds. It is nosier and crowded at times.

I amazed of the beauty at Turkey Run State Park! It is hard to believe that it is in Indiana. The trails are great and I would definitely recommend ! Trail 7 is good for families with young children and you get to see so many beautiful things.

I love coming here!! Great hiking trails that are easily paved and marked well. Easy to moderate in difficulty. There is even a nice pool and inn at the state park as well that is nice and well maintained. Great day activity for families as well as those who love the outdoors. There is a 7 dollar fee to park... More

The trails are genuinely amazing. You will be surprised that such a place exists in the heart of Indiana because it seems more as something one might see out west. The maintenance of the park and trails is adequate only and the reason I cannot give the Park 5 stars. The refusal to offer any trash cans whatsoever, even in... More

We spent an evening here for a quick (close to home) getaway. What a historic rich building. Yes, it does not have the latest updates in the room, but why would you destroy the history? Everything was working & clean! We saw plenty of wildlife & beautiful scenery....exactly what we come for!!

On a visit from Port Huron, Michigan to visit family in Indiana, we visited Turkey Run State Park. We hiked for 2 hours and all 7 of us loved it! The terrain can be slick and uneven at spots. Hiking shoes are a must. We had four children with us, ages 16, 14, 12 and 10. They all were able... More
