We just got home from a great week of camping at Georgia Veterans State Park. We had great time, and we met wonderful people. We camped on the lake, and the view was wonderful. The campground is clean, and it has shaded spots. The comfort stations could be updated. It can be hard for larger campers to get around due... More

Loved the shady trees and the safe beach area for kids. Great place for a family gathering in the shade enjoying the warmer weather. No glass allowed and no dogs on the beach. Shame about the dogs as it looks like great place for them to enjoy too. Plenty of shady parking too.

Rented an RV last Spring Break (2014) and traveled to this park from Gainesville, FL. What a great decision! This park has is all - boat ramp, on-site hotel & restaurant, canoe rentals, fantastic trails, Frisbee golf (free!), and a museum! There's also a beach area for swimming (but when we went it was in the 50s so we didn't... More

This is a great campground! Went camping over the weekend in order to get some R&R and had a nice 4 days. The campsites are $35 a nite plus $2 parking fee per day. Even though we did not use a lot of their amenities we were still able to rent canoes or kayaks if we had desired to do... More

Park is a few miles off the Interstate but it has a lovely lakeside setting. Fishing and boating seem to be the main activities although there is at least one nature trail. Washroom facilities were clean and WARM. It was around freezing during our stay so a warm washroom was appreciated. First time in my life I got to see... More

This was our second visit camping at Georgia Veterans State Park. This is a lovely park along Lake Blackshear. They have several camp sites lake side but all the sites are great. There is not a bad site in the park. Most have a lake view. They have water and electric only but a dump station is available. There is... More

We visited this park in order to see the museum and aircraft. The museum is free and worth some time to see the artifacts and exhibits related to Georgia's veterans. The aircraft collection outdoors is another story. It is surrounded by a high fence with three strands of barbed wire at the top. They must be afraid someone is going... More

This park has been in operation for years, but during recent years has been outsourced to private companies. Personally, I liked it better when it was a state run park, but it is still a fine place to relax and enjoy nature. The golf course is clean and neat. Fishing is abundant. If you enjoy camping, they have great facilities,... More
