Plan Your Next Midwest Camping Trip To This Historic State Park
Located a little more than an hour west of Indianapolis, Turkey Run State Park is an ideal destination for camping, hiking, history, and exploration.
It encompasses 1,150 acres and is known for its beautiful sandstone gorges, lush forests, and unique historical buildings that date back to the 1800's.
Explore over 14 miles of trails through the forests and ravines. Other popular activities include kayaking, canoeing, exploring the historical sites, and fishing on Sugar Creek.
Sleep beneath the stars at Turkey Run State Park Campground, which offers sites for RV and tent campers with excellent amenities surrounded by vegetation and plenty of privacy.
Peak season camping rates start at just $23 per night and include fire rings, picnic tables, restrooms with hot showers, drinking water refill stations, and a small camp store.
You can make reservations at the state park campground or online. If you can't book a site within the state park, several privately owned campgrounds are nearby.
If camping isn't your style, check out the historic Turkey Run Inn, initially constructed in 1919. The rustic lodge offers normal rooms, cabin rooms, and private cabins.
