History: 

In January of 1957 the Dundee Rod and Gun Club founded Talcot Lake County Park. In May of 1976 the land was released to Cottonwood County for development and maintenance under the direction of the DNR. In 1974 Cottonwood County Park purchased thirty adjacent acres through the LAWCON grant (this land currently serves as the campground). Forty thousand was used for roads, picnic facilities, comfort stations, and camping areas.

In 1985 the State-owned land was separated from the thirty acres. The State's property is used from day-use activities and public access to Talcot Lake. The County-owned land serves as a camping and swimming area. LAWCON provided a grant for an additional twenty-five thousand in 1985 for development of a dump station, well water system, landscaping, camping pads, and improved roadway.
