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.

October 2013 DNR Update: Turkey Run Suspension Bridge Is Repaired And Open For Use
An April flood that caused significant structural damage to the suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park resulted in closure of the bridge for public use. However, as of October 4, 2013 the bridge has been repaired and is now open for use.
The bridge will be closed for a few days in late November or December so additional work can be completed on an adjacent staircase.
