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

      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.[4][5]

      This was Chickasaw territory.There doesn't appear to be anything readily available about the true history and how the natives lived around the falls and whatnot.Only the info we know to be false as noted above of that it being 'discovered' in 1878 lol.I'll research some more and update,should I find history going back before settlers arrived.

      Think for a moment about this.His Chickasaw wife,whom he married most likely played there as a child and stories told and shared about childhood memories of swimming and playing there for years and her husband comes along to claim he discovered it.Just imagine how that made her and her relatives feel.......Insignificant.Chickasaw Falls would be much more appropriate in this case.At any rate,this is a nice park! Campsites,the falls,nature trails and an old castle.Great place to visit.
