Rock Cut Concessions Fuels Outdoor Joy

Right in Our Region:
Jim Talkington wants people to enjoy getting outside. He’s doing his part to enhance the opportunities at Rock Cut State Park, where for 14 years his business, Rock Cut Concessions, has been renting out boats, selling fishing and camping supplies and running the Lone Rock Café. He often teams up with others to offer lessons in activities like using a stand-up paddleboard or learning to fish. Last summer, he also took over management of the Olson Beach swim area on the east side of the park.
