Just outside of Tallahassee is the Lake Talquin State Forest, home of the lake from which it is named. The area provides all kinds of outdoor recreation to both the inhabitants of the city and visitors from all over the nation. While pine trees are the most plentiful tree species here, the forest is quite diverse, with terrain that can be steep at times.
At High Bluff Campground, you will find two loops of campsites located at the north shore of the lake. Many of these sites are large enough to hold RVs, though none offer hookups of any kind. All lots cost $9.13 per night and come with a fire ring and a picnic table. No drinking water is provided, so be sure to bring along enough for both you and your pooch for the duration of your stay.
The best feature at this otherwise primitive campground is definitely the beautiful wooden fishing pier that provides access to Lake Talquin. A boat ramp is also located on the grounds, making it easy to fish from the shore or the water -- whichever you prefer! Canoeing and kayaking are also favorite pastimes out on the lake. With the numerous hiking trails in this state forest, you'll have no excuse not to get Fido out for some exercise during your stay. Mountain biking and horseback riding trails are also provided in the area. While you're there, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the many birds and animals that call this forest home.
Your pupper is more than welcome to come and stay with you at High Bluff, as long as you keep them on-leash for your entire visit. To keep canines welcome at this facility, please clean up all of your woofer's bathroom breaks throughout your trip. It is also important to never leave your doggo unattended at your campsite.
If hot days out on the lake are what you seek, High Bluff Campground in the Lake Talquin State Forest is one to add to your list!
