Turkey Run is one of our favorites! Wonderful trails of all levels! Traveling with 3 kids & 2 dogs and in our new travel trailer, I can tell you what we believe are the best sites. #7 has a good size grassy lot, #38 is large pull through site, #65 is a unique corner lot with a big tree, we stayed in #92/93 which are good together if you want space. #202 is a good spot if you want in the wooded valley and #223 & #224 are nice flat wooded spots. The trail that goes to the inn and connecting to the other main trails is by the playground by sites #40 & #60. If you plan on hiking a lot, you may want to be on this side of the campground (however you can drive over there too). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here last weekend and found the campground to be quite nice other than the lack of water hookups at each site. The park staff at check-in were very friendly and helpful. We were able to get checked in quickly (pre-registered online) and were provided lots of reading material about both the park and the Indiana State parks system. The camp store was selling wood for $5 a bundle (a pretty standard rate these days) and had numerous useful items for those who forgot something (extension cords, power adapters, charcoal, lighter fluid, food, drinks, etc.) The store staff were also very friendly. If you can't find what you need in the camp store there is a convenience store just across the road within easy walking distance. The site we got (230) was mostly level and totally shaded all day. If you are interested in an unobstructed view, be sure to read the descriptions as the shaded spots are all well shaded and the open spots are full sun. The electrical service was in good condition but was shared between two spots and was located a good distance away. The distance to power is clearly marked in the online description, so you may want to check it for the spot you choose to be sure that you can reach. Our spot was generally clean and free of debris, and quite large. Water is found all over the campground, just not in the individual spots, so you may want to fill your tanks upon entry so that you have plenty of water on board. This is easily accomplished, but be advised that if your spot is near the water, it is a public water source and not designated for you spot. Someone may disconnect your hose to fill their tank if you hookup to the hose bib. We used a RhinoPak to keep the tank filled and didn't have to walk far to fill it. There is a great deal to do in the park itself. It has a fantastic nature center, a large pool with lots of slides, etc., absolutely glorious hiking trails, lots of bird species, etc. There are also a couple of places to put in and take out your canoe, a fantastic river, and two historic covered bridges, one at either end of the park grounds. The lodge at the park is also historic and has great food if you are so inclined. Leaving was a snap. There are two dump lines going out at the main entrance, both of which were in good shape when we were there, and plenty of dumpsters to dump trash. The park was mostly full when we were there (about 3/4 capacity) and the dumpsters were getting full but not overflowing (no issues with mess or odor.) We will stay here again for sure, just in the off-season like this time due to the popularity of the park. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We love Turkey Run State Park we have stayed at the INN and or camped there as a family for the past 6 or 7 years staying a week every time. This year the suspension bridge was closed which added a lot of distance to the walking trails as the only access is from the far East end of the park. The campground is great be sure to verify the size of the lot with your unit as there are several sites in this park that are tent camping only due to size. The restrooms were OK they were not as clean as they could be and are definitely in need of updating / replacement. The trash dumpsters are close to the entry and can get nasty when the rain washes out the juice and the smell combines with the nearby dump station. Use the dump site on the opposite end of the entry it is in the sun and dries out between uses. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
