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.
