LOVED hiking this trail on and off! we went adventuring up and down the rockface and it was SO exhilarating with beautiful views, a couple of neat little caves and refreshing waters at the falls! also a big plus to have multiple options for camping! (cabins, tent, or rv)

Great trails

I stayed here a couple of nights last year, and my experience was lackluster.. There were families with 10-15 people in each family taking up a good 80% of the camping spots. We were lucky enough to find a secluded spot, away from their noise, with a picnic table hidden amongst the trees. There is true potential for this place as there is beauty in the Falls. However, there is trash, literally everywhere , strewn across the hillsides... It is quite aggravating to see..
the Castle, which is what I was looking forward to, was severely lacking and disappointing. It is smaller than I'd imagined and covered in graffiti.
Turner Falls is not worth your time, nor the amount of money you must shell out to get in.

The natural beauty of this place is great,unfortunately it is ruined by the town of Davis which owns the park. Trails lead to nowhere and littered with trash,fish hooks and lines in the swimming areas,and cheap trinket gift shop. They wouldn't let us come in with our dog as they were concerned about dog poop. They oughta worry about people not coming back after a trashy,loud,disgusting visit and do more to make it less of a party spot. We left and went to sulpher state park down the road-much better.

It’s not too bad of a place to visit because there’s some nice views. The trails aren’t marked clearly though which makes for some confusion and the zip lines loud music ruins the beauty of the area. I couldn’t imagine camping there though withy family cause it has the feel of a party spot especially with all the beer bottle caps everywhere thru out the camping areas. It’s a nice one time trip in the off season since it’s not as crowded.

The trails are not marked. Hard to navigate. Had more fun rock climbing off the trails. Extremely crazy crowded. The zip line plays loud music you can hear on the trails. I’ve been all over the united states and have seen better waterfalls and better trails.

I'm not too sure we actually followed a trail at all haha But there is so much to see! we went inside caves, climbed cliffs, saw so much prettiness. Highly recommend.

We camped there for a couple of nights. The castle ruins and the caves were cool. The first part of the trail was well marked and enjoyable. However, you have to hike through a campground area, which was awkward. Took both of the kids and they enjoyed the castles and the caves more than the trails. I agree.

The park itself isn't too bad if you're wanting to camp or swim, but as far as hiking goes my wife and I didn't enjoy this trail too much. (sidenote: $12 per adult to enter the park for the day, our 2 yr old got in for free)

The first half of the trail was well marked, quiet, and beautiful. However, we ended up in a random camp ground with no direction and the trail sort of just ended with no indication of where to go. Navigating around swimmers, tents, trash, and vehicles wasn't what we were expecting.

It's probably our own fault for not doing the proper research and going at the wrong time of the year (Saturday afternoon June 24th), but the abundance of people, loud music, and trash ruined the experience. We may try this hike again during the winter when it's less crowded as another review suggests.

A bit of a sour taste on this one considering we drove an hour 45 from Ft worth and paid to get in, won't write it off just yet as the scenery is beautiful and there looked like some really cool places that could be more accessible if it wasn't so crowded. We'll give it another shot in the winter, crossing my fingers for a better experience next time around.

The castle-like ruins are very cool, as are the little caves, but I think the coolest part is driving to the park. Within minutes of getting off the interstate, it feels like you're in a completely different area.

This is a great stop on the road from Dallas to OKC. Lovely spring hike with very few people around. I wouldn't want to be there when summer hits and all the crowds descend, however. There is a park entrance fee - we paid $3 each for 55 & up, but that doubles on May 1. We hiked to the falls, which are close to the trailhead. The. Hiked up a wooded trail. The coreopsis were in bloom - incredibly gorgeous! We stuck out feet in the cold water - so refreshing.

Low level rock climbing, it is a great place for beginners with no need for gear. Don't just stick to the easy path, this is a labyrinth of rocky trails that are fun to explore with a beautiful waterfall as its prize.

like the area. but best time is to go off season. too crowded in summer to enjoy

Beautiful....got there late in the evening so was only able to walk down to the falls from the entrance, because we were to afraid to drive across the bridge with the water going over the top. We will definitely plan another trip up. The Zip line at the top is pretty cool though too.

Poorly marked trail makes it challenging to navigate with kids...making it not so kid friendly...dangerous trail for small kids...parents of little ones would do better taking them to red rock or roman nose...

This is a great trail but there aren't many posted signs as to where the trail starts or ends.

We couldn't find all of the trails and one trail goes right through the camp grounds it.

We ended up exploring many of the unoffical trails and caves instead.

If you aren't interested in swimming, then go during the posted winter schedule and go during the week. almost no one was there until about 3 pm then it got busier but not to busy that it was crowded.

Nice hike. We didn't stay on the trail at all, but enjoyed climbing, and hiking along the water. I like how you can pretty much go anywhere you want. I was also very disappointed in the amount of trash, if you carry it in take it back out with you!!

Beautiful, but I would recommend getting there early before it gets crowded.

Awesome. Had a little help finding the last cave. Bring a flashlight for that one.

One of the best experiences one could have. Hiked and climbed the entire trail and even explored a little. Absolutely beautiful!

We had a fun day and went off of the beaten path through the brush and the woods ending up near camping sites and the stream which we hiked until the water fall then hiked up rocks and went into a cave. The castle was nice too and we did a circle around the swimming holes back to our car. We met many friendly families along the way! It had a lot to offer. We were sad to see so much litter everywhere and broken glass! We saw wildlife tracks but no wildlife or many insects either If we go again I'll take trash bags and pick up litter as we go along. All in all a fun adventure!

Trails were okay, but heavily crowded. More of a swimming hole.
