Turner Falls located in Southern Oklahoma, 5 miles south of the city of Davis, is one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the United States of America to see. It is a humongous set of twin waterfalls that cascade down a mountain into what looks like a beautiful large pool that feeds a creek and smaller pools. This is definitely something to add to your Oklahoma vacation get-away as a point of interest; truly spectacular.

Highway US 77 has a great viewing site, way at the top of a mountain where one can see the entire twin waterfalls. Turner Falls is breath-taking and gorgeous. When viewing from this lookout point, one realizes the enormity of the two waterfalls and receives an excellent aerial view of the Turner Falls Park. My husband and I have repeatedly enjoyed this lookout spot for it delivers the best view to see the entirety of Turner Falls.

For those who would like to enjoy the falls in a more up close and personal fashion, and explore the pools, creek and terrain below Turner Falls, is Turner Falls Park. This is a great family place. Adults, Seniors, and children of all ages can enjoy swimming in the pools or wading in the creek. There are great picnic spots next to the creek, underneath gorgeous shade trees. Turner Falls Park is ideal for a fun family outdoor experience.

Turner Falls Park also has available cabin rentals, R.V. Hookups, Shower Houses, hiking trails, caves to explore, geological formations to see, and much more. This unique natural wonder site is well worth visiting and tourists of all ages are welcome.

For more information about Turner Falls Park please visit their website: or telephone (580) 369-2988.

      Thank you Letitia for your delightful comment; the wonderful thing about Turner Falls is that it is more gorgeous in person than in the pictures supplied for the hub. Yes, this is definitely something not to be missed when you visit Oklahoma again! :D

      Just beautiful. I love what I've seen of Oklahoma but never imagined it boasted this type of landscape in addition. I'll try to go there next time I'm in the state.

      My daughter and I stopped off there a few years ago when we decided to take off on a mini vacation with no destination in mind. We just headed north. As luck would have it, by the time we were ready to sleep, every hotel was booked for some convention or another.....we finally found one that only had their most luxurious suite available and I thought what the heck, and took it. My daughter thought it was the coolest thing because it had separate rooms and I think three televisions, etc. I just wanted sleep.

      Turner Falls is absolutely gorgeous. I plan to go back there real soon to take my husband there.

      We have visited Turner Falls on our way up to the Mid-West to visit relatives. We have also taken the time to go to the park and view them up close. Well worth a side trip to see them...or with enough time...enjoy the day and picnic there. Great photo and perhaps more people will stop and take a closer look if they are in the area. Not far off the main highway. Nice job!
