Swim at Turner Falls


Added by Korey Taylor

Beautiful 77-ft falls (largest in Oklahoma). Natural swimming area. Sandy beaches. Oldest park in Oklahoma. Perfect place to escape the heat. Family-friendly. Picnic areas.

Turner Falls is situated in the Arbuckle Mountains of Oklahoma and at 77-feet tall is the largest waterfall in the state. During the warmer months it offers a perfect escape to swim, relax, and cool off. It's a short walk along the banks of Honey Creek to the falls, and you can find a picnic area to the left of the creek.

This is such a beautiful area - it's hard to believe that it's located in Oklahoma. It's the perfect place for a day trip if you're in Dallas, Oklahoma City, or surrounding areas. If you're traveling from a further distance there are first come-first served campsites available to spend the night. If you've been trying to find a local swimming hole, look no further and check it out!

From May 1 to September 30 there is an entrance fee of $12 for adults and $6 for children. From October 1 to April 30 the entrance fee is $4.

Getting there: If you're traveling north on I-35 take exit 47, and if you're traveling south take exit 51. Both exits will lead you to Highway 77 where you will find a beautiful scenic overlook to the south and the main entrance to the north. Once you enter the park through the main entrance, follow the paved road over a water crossing, then look for signs for the Turner Falls parking lot.

Terrible camping and trash everywhere. Was way too crowded.


Me and some friends went down to Turner Falls later in summer. Swimming was cold but super fun. The camping experience was horrid. People stayed up the entire night blasting music, there was no firewood anywhere, and trash was lying around all over the place. Alright day trip, awful camp experience.
