Turkey Run Canoeing and Kayaking on Sugar Creek

Sugar Creek, one of Indiana’s most scenic rivers, flows right through the heart of Turkey Run State Park. While the park does not operate any boat rentals or canoe services, several local canoe liveries operate on Sugar Creek offering canoe, kayak and tube trips.

For those wanting to do their own canoeing, kayaking or float trips, two public access points to Sugar Creek exist just outside Turkey Run: one upstream of the Narrows Covered Bridge at the Brush Creek canoe ramp, and one downstream at the Cox Ford canoe ramp by Cox Ford Covered Bridge.
