Be warned, the beauty of this place will take your breath away!

Turner FallsHistory

Turner Falls Park is the oldest park in Oklahoma. In 1878, a farmer named Mazeppa Thomas Turner and his wife, a Chickasaw woman by the name of Laura Johnson, settled in a cabin along Honey Creek. While exploring he found the waterfall, which earned his name, and is now known as the largest waterfall in Oklahoma. In 1925, the City of Davis bought the park from the Turner Family for $17,000.

Natural Wonders

Fed by Honey Creek, the 77-foot falls is the focal point of the park, but is far from being the only point of interest. At the base of the falls is a beautiful, natural swimming pool that looks like something out of a movie. While hiking along one of the numerous trails at Turner Falls, you may discover one of the three natural caves formed here, as well as many other interesting geological formations, making this park a haven for naturalists.

Perfect for Camping

Whether you are in your camper, or motorhome, this place is perfect for bringing your family out, and crowding around the fire to make s’mores. The park offer RV hook-ups for water and electric, as well as provide safety and security with a 24-hour police patrol. They also have cabins available for rent if you bring your extended family along, but have run out of sleeping space. If you bring the in-laws, there are plenty of places to pitch a tent for them.

So, if you enjoy the great outdoors, and want to enjoy the beauty of Oklahoma, then Turner Falls Park just might be the perfect destination for you and your family! Have you ever been? Let us know your favorite part in the comments below!
