You'll marvel at the
natural geologic wonders of this beautiful park as you hike along
its famous trails. Nestled along State Road 47 southwest of Crawfordsville,
you'll want to explore the deep, sandstone ravines and walk along
the stands of aged forests, and enjoy the scenic views along Sugar
Creek. Visit the Colonel Richard Lieber Cabin which commemorates
the contributions of the father of Indiana's state park system.
Off-trail hiking is
prohibited at all Indiana State Parks, but it is especially important
to obey that rule here because of the unique and fragile nature
of the plant and animal communities found at Turkey Run.

May 2013 DNR Update: Turkey Run Suspension Bridge Closed
An April flood that caused significant structural damage to the suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park has resulted in immediate closure of the bridge for public use.
DNR staff is reviewing options to bring the bridge back to safe standards for public use.
Visitors will still be able to access the north side of the park by following Trail 1 to the Narrows Covered Bridge. All trails south of Sugar Creek remain open to public use.
