Fun and relaxing

We love going here. In fact, we plan to go back this weekend. We've seen alligators, deer and other small wildlife. Enjoyed hiking on the trails.

I love driving this road. Quail season is facinating with all the quail flying. If you are patient, you might see a deer. Maybe a bear? Peaceful

A great place to picnic, hike, or fish. There are plenty of docks and a boat ramp as well. Dogs are allowed on leashes and there are plenty of trails as well. Limited facilities, but there are restrooms, covered tables, and grills to use.

Beautiful lake that offers some nice fishing or just a quiet, scenic spot for a nice boat ride. Popular but not overly busy .

We went here to scout out a place to celebrate my wife's birthday with the extended family. We did not go with this location, but we enjoyed our brief visit. The photo I took of Lake Talquin through the leaves is one of my favorites. I would like to come back with a boat sometime in the future.

Talquin changes lives... Depressed? Angry? Try Lake Talquin today. There's nothing like being in the middle of nowhere picking windflowers.

Peaceful setting for walking/hiking, biking and fishing. If you have a boat, even better. Only 20 minutes out of the city, but you can see so much wildlife.
