BLUFF PICNIC SITE
Lake Talquin was formed in 1927 when
the Jackson Bluff Dam was constructed on the Ochlockonee River to produce
hydroelectric power. The lake now offers outstanding recreational
opportunities for largemouth bass, shellcracker and speckled perch sport
fishing, nature walks, picnicking and boating.
A Florida freshwater fishing license is required for persons over 15
years of age or older. A small fishing dock is located at the River Bluff
area to allow fishing without a boat.
Nature lovers will enjoy River Bluff's rolling hills and
deep ravines which host thick forests of pines and hardwoods, wild
turkey, deer, osprey and bald eagles. Excellent picnic
facilities, including a pavilion and barbeque pit are available at the
River Bluff Picnic Site. The facilities may be reserved for group activities
and after-hour use by contacting the park office.
River Bluff Picnic Site is located on S.R. 20, 10 miles west of Tallahassee
on Jack Vause Road.
