Visited Georgia Veterans State Park on a recent family vacation and stayed in one of the lake cabins managed by The Resort at Lake Blackshear. The cabin was very dated but furnished and kids slept well. Amenities at Resort included. Loved the small beach and resort pool.

A lot of history with great museum displays. A must-see stop for history buffs. The lake was nice but was a little crowded in areas and boat rental prices were high. There wasn't much to do besides visiting the museum.

My wife and I spent a few days at Lake Blackshear and really enjoyed the area. My wife's favorite part was the $5 kayak rental! I enjoyed the pontoon boat and beautiful scenery.

We camped here in May '15. It was not real crowded and we got a site on the lake. It was nice, quiet, clean, with plenty of room to walk the dogs. I would recommend this to anyone. We camped in a 30' motorhome.

We had rented a house on the lake at Lake Blackshear for Father's Day weekend. We were traveling with my family and my parents. My dad brought his boat and the first trip out for the weekend, it broke down. We ended up renting a pontoon boat for a few hours from the marina so we could get out and... More

Very nice and quiet state park. On Lake Blackshear which is great for boating and fishing. The location of this property insures that it is not very busy even on holidays. Good golf course. Nice resort property a bit dated but very reasonable. ( check for discount coupon web sites). Great fine dining restaurant. Great small hotel type bar. Open... More
