Nestled on the bluffs overlooking Lake Talquin’s southern shore, the park offers outdoor activities for all ages. Visitors will find outstanding freshwater fishing with common species such as largemouth bass, striped bass, speckled perch, bream and catfish being caught off the park’s boardwalk or dock.
Bring your canoe or kayak to launch and explore the roughly 10,000-acre Lake Talquin. Enjoy a leisurely walk on the interpretive trail past ravine systems to a bluff overlooking the lake.
The park is an excellent place for wildlife viewing and bird-watching. Wildlife roaming the park includes deer, squirrel, turkey and the occasional bear. Birders are likely to spot bald eagles and osprey soaring high above the lake.
The park features a picnic area with tables and grills along with a pavilion that is perfect for family reunions, private parties and weddings.
