State Park
Enjoy a hike and a swim at Turner Falls Park. Two trails lead to the base of the falls and the pool at Honey Creek. The 6.1 sq km (1,500 acre) park features several more paths that guide you past rock formations, caves, and thick forest growth. Take the trail that passes a castle built in the 1930s, and explore inside its stone walls. At the falls, relax on the benches or take a dip in the pool. Remember to bring your swimsuit and sunscreen. Put Turner Falls Park and other Davis attractions into our Davis vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • What a cool place! We read the reviews and we were pretty nervous as we were driving from Stillwater. The trails were short, but a fun adventure. The water was beautiful. The Falls were very unique. I...  more »

  • So the 5 star is for the beauty of the place, however, it needs some maintaining. There was quite a bit of trash everywhere and I recognize that it is a city park but nevertheless, I think they could do better. I also asked to do a service project for them (I brought 8 people) but they said there's really nothing to be done. Nevertheless, the place is quite naturally beautiful along with other things that are there to do. There's an old "castle-like" structure we got to explore. It's not a castle and there's an explanation you can read about when you explore the place. There are also a few caves which one of them the boys said had a massive room inside and lots of hiking trail. The river is the best experience because we got to swim a lot and there are quite a few swinging ropes that people put up to swing from. We were also able to walk upstream quite a ways and enjoyed the cool fresh water. There are restrooms right by the swimming hole (the falls). The camping area is great. We camped above the falls and we were very close to the river that we swam a lot. Our campsite was close to restrooms, showers and running water. Overall, a good experience.
  • Beautiful place to sight see, but the line was long, stores and Cafe and swimming area all closed. Would like to see some improvement in planning from the city when it comes to managing this place. But with all that, pack water and food and be prepared to hike. The pictures are breathtaking.
  • As pretty as it is.... they have it very overpriced and the sites don't explain fees very well. We turned down a 1 way road to find ourselves being charged admission to the park 2 hours before closing. We paid $30 to enter!!! Not to camp, not to swim, to drive around for about an hour. They charged car rates plus per person. Its a rip off even if it is beautiful
  • Beautiful place, not well kept, some public walkways are in disrepair and could be hazardous to young children or the mobile impaired. The cost.. to visit off season $4 per person Which was $30 ish after tax for our group. We were checking it out to see if we wanted to come back to camp. We asked a camper how much he had paid. We were told that the cost per person would be charged as well as a per vehicle fee. That means for a family of 7 + 1 vehicle would be about $43 per night.
  • Unlike any place I have visited in the Texas and Oklahoma area. I happened upon this place while in search for waterfalls to photograph. A big swimming area sits at the bottom of a waterfall at this park. Picnic areas line a beautiful river bed, and hiking trails traverse the park leading to rock caves, stone castles, and beautiful overlooks especially in the fall. The swimming area is apparently a very popular spot during the summer. Luckily we visited during the fall season when the weather was starting to get cooler and the swimming area only had a handful of people which made for better photography. Also park admission varies from winter to summer. Summer rates for adults is $12, while winter rates only $4. Childrens price as less. Its an oasis I didnt expect to find in the flat Oklahoma countryside just outside Texas. The park is located just off the expressway, and it pretty easy to find. If your looking to make a weekend trip, or planning on heading up from Dallas to Oklahoma City, stop by this place and check it out. It would be a great place to take the kids swimming in the summer.
