Great Family Place

This is a great place for camping, swimming and fishing. They have condos, if you don't camp. The golf course is great!

I have been to the state park many times. Just was there Sunday for a little girl's forth birthday party. The park is very clean and has some very nice spots. They have a nice playground, grills, public bathrooms, airplanes, helicopter, museum, hotel, restaurants, camp grounds, rv hook ups, cabins, beach area, docks, and amazing wild life. Also have shelters... More

I liked the memorabilia but the park on the lake was lacking. We did not get a parking pass when we entered due to the fact that our friends were staying at the resort. The parking Nazi came around and let us know rather rudely that we are still required to pay the $5. I guess he loves his job.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review of Georgia Veterans State Park. What in your opinion was lacking in the park? In terms of the parking pass, that is required by State Law for everyone who enters that Park. Thanks you for your time! More

Great history displayed with tanks and museum. Large campsites as well. Wish we had more time to spend. Large playground for kids and nice bathrooms.

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.
