While I have lived in Indiana all my life, this was our first visit. I must say I was a little reluctant about going, but I was very impressed. Has a lot to offer. Tubing seemed to be one of the main attractions.

Sometimes it’s a good idea to get away from the city. The place provides simple trails to difficult trails where you climb but overall was a great experience. Loved the place

Nice hike today at Turkey Run State Park. We were amazed that there didn't seem to be a lot of people there! Or, at least we didn't run into a lot of hikers. Very beautiful scenery!

I had an awesome day taking a solo hike at Turkey Run. Ended up doing five trails. Since all of the rain we had the past few weeks, there are a lot of freshly fallen trees to climb over and that made the hike even...More
