Turner Falls Park is one of the most beautiful places I've seen in Oklahoma, and on a hot summer day, the ONLY reason to be outside is so that you can swim and play in a cool, clear stream like Honey Creek, which runs from the Falls all the way through the park to the big swimming hole. However, the park gets overrun with visitors on hot Saturdays and Sundays in the summer, and the more people are in the water, the more dirty the water gets (it starts to feel slimy from everyone's sunblock). Take my advice and visit on a weekday, or, if it must be a weekend, go in April or early May or mid-September. When it's not too crowded, this is truly a great place to visit.

We live in North Texas and Davis, OK is about 1 1/2 hours away, our visit to Turner Falls was the last trip of the summer before our school-aged kids went back to school. It was a really nice trip. We visited on a weekday, OK schools had already reopened. There weren't very many people at all. The water was cool and refreshing. Plenty to do... hike, swim, wade, slide, dive, etc ... We're vegans so we brought our own lunch but there are concession type foods available. The ONLY drawback was a bit of trash discarded improperly - we each picked up some and put it in the correct place, just to make it nicer for everyone. I suggested (I have this issue - suggesting even when unsolicited) that the park offer free snow-cones or a discount on admission for each bag of trash collected. I, of course thought this was a perfect idea.

If you are in the area, visit Turner Falls, there really isn't anything like it around here.

Located in the Arbuckle Mountains the park is layed back and relaxing. The water is not as cold as I expected but still refreshing on a hot summers day. The park is very clean and maintained. Staff is friendly and are helpful with park information.

There is something for everyone weather your looking for waterslides, swimming, hiking or just BBQ's with the family they have you covered. Looking forward to the next trip back.

We went on a Monday in late August after most kids were back in school, so it was not crowded at all. We climbed up the cliff from the main falls, then went to the back of the park and walked our way down Honey Creek. The was one main swimming area near the back of the park that was the most fun. Several rope swings went into the water, which were great. The water was very cold, but felt good on the hot summer day. The only downside was the amount of trash on the various trails, which really needed attention. You can tell it is a privately managed park by the city of Davis and not kept up to the standards of a state or national park. Overall, we really did enjoy exploring the creek and the falls, and the fun times in the water. It was a bit expensive at 12 dollars per person.

Went this August on a weekend. Almost didn't go because of the poor reviews. I am glad I did. Didn't see any of the extremely bad things listed in some of the other reviews. There were a lot of people, but certainly no worse, and probably much better, than your average amusement park during the summer. The water was great. A very low tech, very refreshing summer vacation. Definitely recommend.
