Update: Turkey Creek has been reopened to paddlers. Confirmed with Jackson Guard on 5/27/15.
The Jackson Guard/Eglin Natural Resources Division announced earlier today that, as a result of the recent rain event that effected northwest Florida,the culverts along the upper portion of Turkey Creek below Range Road 232 have collapsed and pose a danger to paddlers attempting to traverse that section of the creek. The culverts were beneath an area which was once the old Eglin Railroad. Eglin is assessing the damage. There is no word when the area will be reopened. For more information, please contact the Jackson Guard at (850) 882-4164, 4165 or 4166.
