TALBOT ISLAND STATE PARK
five miles of wide sandy beaches, undisturbed salt marshes and vegetated
dunes have been preserved at Little Talbot Island, a sea island unique
to this part of the Atlantic coast.
Maritime forests, desert-like
dunes, and the salt marshes behind the island allow endless hours of nature
study and relaxation. River otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats
and a variety of shore birds inhabit the island. Migrating shorebirds
are a particular off-season delight at Little Talbot.
surf provides excellent fishing, as do the tidal streams behind the island.
Bluefish, striped bass, redfish, flounder, mullet and sheepshead are common
catches on the island. Camping, hiking, picnicking,
surfing and swimming are available in the park.
