Turner Falls Park


Turner Falls is one of Oklahoma's tallest waterfalls, dropping 77 feet into a natural swimming pool. Located on Honey Creek in the Arbuckle Mountains near Davis, Turner Falls Park draws thousands of visitors each year who enjoy swimming, hiking and camping. 

Located in the Arbuckle Mountains (some of the oldest mountains on earth), Turner Falls Park has been described as one of the three geological windows into the planet's past, along with the Grand Canyon and the Black Hills of South Dakota. These ancient mountains make a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor adventure.

A highlight of Turner Falls Park is the clear water that flows throughout the park, creating rippling creeks and natural swimming pools perfect for keeping visitors cool on hot summer days, although the crown jewel of the park's watery playground remains the 77-foot picturesque waterfall. Visitors will also enjoy hiking along the nature trails, exploring the park's three caves, discovering Collings Castle and fishing the trout-stocked streams from November through March. 

Campers will also find RV and tent campground areas as well as privately-owned rental cabins in the park. Please note, no pets are allowed in the park and children under 12 are required to have a certified flotation device.

Collings Castle

COLLINGS CASTLE / ELLSWORTH COLLINGS: The historic Collings Castle located in Turner Falls Park on Thursday, April 14, 2011, in Davis, Okla. Photo by Chris Landsberger, The Oklahoman ORG XMIT: KOD

Collings Castle is a great thing to visit on your stay to Turner Falls Park. This castle was built in the 1930’s and became part of the estate of the late Ellsworth Collings. No one really ever new why Collings built the castle, since there were no wars in the 30’s the battlements that were used the in the build of the Castle were really put there for the show of the castle, to add to the design of the building. Official documents claim that the castle is an English style buy historians believe that the castle has quite a bit of Spanish influence, probably do to Collings love for Spanish architecture. Even though the castle may have a bit of Spanish influence all of the materials were found and sourced from Oklahoma, except for the rose rocks around the fireplace which were sourced from Lexington.

Turner Falls

This article is about the waterfall and park in Oklahoma. For a village in Massachusetts with a similar name, see Turners Falls, Massachusetts.

Waterfall in Oklahoma, United States

Turner Falls is a waterfall on Honey Creek in the Arbuckle Mountains of south-central Oklahoma, United States, 6 miles (9.7 km) south of Davis.[1][2] With a height of 77 feet (23 m), Turner Falls is locally considered Oklahoma's tallest waterfall,[3] although its height matches one in Natural Falls State Park.[4]

Turner Falls and the blue hole are dangerous and have claimed people's lives every year. Only experienced swimmers should swim there.[1]

History[edit]

Mazeppa Thomas Turner, a Scottish immigrant farmer who married Laura Johnson, a Chickasaw woman, settled in the area in 1878 and discovered the falls. The falls were named for him.[2][5]

Recreational use began in or before 1868. At the time, Turner Falls was located in Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation.[6]

Today, the falls are part of Turner Falls Park, a city park operated by the city of Davis, Oklahoma.[5] The Falls cascade into a natural swimming pool, one of two such pools within the park,[3] and these are popular tourist destinations in the summer.[7]

The city of Davis acquired the park in 1919 and operated it until 1950. It then leased the facility to other interests until 1978, when it resumed control.[2]

The park covers 1,500 acres (6.1 km2), and also contains nature trails, caves and other interesting geological features. It also has a walk-in castle[3] which was built in the 1930s.
