LOVE this park! We have lived here 20 years and the first time we've visited was today because I usually go Oxley at Mohawk Park.

This can be a challenging trail if you are used to the flat ones that Oklahoma typically has. In some areas this is more like Beavers Bend State Park or Robbers Cave State Park in terms of elevation and terrain. Some very interesting bluffs with caves, a small meadow area and another strip that is most likely boggy during rainy times. We were there at mid afternoon and only heard birds and saw some deer tracks. If you went early or later you might have a better chance of seeing wildlife but be aware gates close at 5 p.m.

Signage does need to be updated but we found our way around with no problem. Just look for where the path is man made (steps is a big tip off). Water runoff and storms has taken down a big tree down at the bluff area but you can easily squeeze through and get back onto the trail.

The area is very quiet and w.o a lot of foot traffic (we arrived at noon on a Sunday in August) - unlike Oxley at MP and Ray Harral Nature Center where you will be constantly bumping into people and their dogs. BTW love that there is NO DOGS because I'm tired of dog people bringing their animals, not cleaning up their poop, and letting them off leash.

Beautiful view of the falls and very easy walk to get there!

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

Beautiful scenery, did it with my 3 year old son and I’m pregnant. Took the wrong trail at times so I had to backtrack, they need to update the signs because 90% of them are broken. But such a fun and beautiful hike with birds singing, my son saw lots of bright lizards as well.

The trail was very well kept even if it was early in the season. Bit cold and windy when I went but it made the boulder hopping a lot more fun that way. Gorgeous views!

The waterfall, spring and trail are all beautiful anytime of the year.

Pretty views, nice park, narrow trails kind of cause traffic jams on this trail when busy. Worth the drive. Park entrance is $5 per car, 2 other trails in the park.

Beautiful trail. May get confusing if you can’t read a map or don’t have a compass.

Beautiful oasis feel.

Started at Sunset TH. Nice trail, especially for the hike down the Valley of the Boulders (where you'll also find the 'Apple & Pear'). Before the Valley trail is very obvious. Arriving at the boulders search for the trail at the right hillside (don't start to scramble down the boulders). After the Valley the trail sometimes gets less well defined in certain spots. Follow main trail till parking lot at southern end of trail (various spur trails here). Crab Eyes was part of the trail, I made it just below the eye catching rock.

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.

Great for the family or if your starting out as a hiker.

This is one of my favorite trails- I love the boulder valley and the views when you get to the lakes. Definitely lacks a little in signage in several places. I always orient to the Apple and Pear rock formation just in case!

Great trail good markings only got confused and lost once! It ended up being a 4 mile hike!

Absolutely beautiful. Worth the drive to see.

No dogs allowed is an automatic one star.

Took the family last month. Great short hike. Good for younger kids. Well maintained trail.

Beautiful hike, but signage was awful and nonexistent in some spots. We started from the southern trailhead, and the trail disappears almost immediately over the rocks. Find the easiest way down and you should be able to figure out where the trail picks up from there. The trail forks not long after that with no signage to indicate which way is which (there was a wooden post that may have been a sign at one point) - after some backtracking and head-scratching, we figured out the left fork is the main trail and the right joins back up to the main trail at some point, but is much more strenuous and hard to follow. At this point we came across a dead bison right alongside the trail that smelled like it had been there for a couple days at least. Not long after the main trail comes to another fork with no signs. Not sure where the left fork goes, but we went right and that ended up being the correct way. Very soon after that is another intersection that confused us for a long time. The rightmost trail goes to Post Oak Falls and the main trail continues along the creek, with another third trail branching off between the two that wasn't marked and we didn't explore but seemed to go up the ridge above the creek. The main trail seems to dead-end at a small trickling waterfall that may be confused as Post Oak Falls (we did at first), but you actually have to climb over the waterfall to continue the trail- I can see where this might confuse and turn away some hikers. The trail is a little hard to follow here but just continue along the creek until the trail becomes easier to see. There was another sign in this area that was broken and swinging around on one pole, so we had no idea which way it was supposed to be facing- you should be able to see Crab Eyes from here, just head in that direction into the boulder field. This was the funnest part of the hike, with a lot of small caves to explore. You have to scramble for a bit to continue along the trail, and try to remember where you exited as it's not clear on the way back. The trail after this was easy and well-marked all the way to the Sunset Trailhead.

Short trail, but beautiful scenery

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.

Great trail and the boulder climbs were awesome. I recommend gloves if you're going to enjoy the boulders.

We got lost while on the top so we ended up coming down this trail on our way back and it was fantastic. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who wants a good workout.

I went with my 12 year old daughter and really enjoyed ourselves. Everything is pretty bare this time of year but it was beautiful, the out cropping were really interesting and the few critters we saw was educational. Being 15 minutes from home I see us frequenting here for afternoon jaunts.

Great hike, wasn’t hard to follow until we got to the rocks but if you keep going the trail is easy to pick up again, highly recommend this hike

very good trail. Well marked, good elevation and lots of rocks.

FYI- after driving out there on a Tuesday afternoon, discovered this Trail is only open Wednesday through Saturday. Disappointed.

Wear pants. Prickly brush. Awesome trail. Light traffic. Off beaten path. Give yourself 3 hours to complete.
