Stopped to camp for a night on our way to Tennessee from Florida. Everything was okay, except the park states that you cannot bring your own firewood(so we didn't)... but they don't have any to sell!. Ended up driving 10 miles into Cordele and finally found a place right next to Walmart- called Wells Hardware/Farm store. I called everywhere, this... More

A great exhibition of World War II and Korean War hardware, equipment, uniforms, and memorabilia. Both in the outdoor display and the museum. Very well done. The park has a nice lodge, lake, model aircraft airdrome, and picnic areas aside from the static display and museum. Very friendly staff. Park is well maintained however the 60+ year old aircraft could... More

Upon arriving we were ready for a day at the lake. We visit Lake Tobo quite often and wanted to try something different. Wow! Big mistake. Everything in the facilities were out of order. Everything needed to be repaired. The beach itself was trashed. Dirty diapers, trash, and cig. butts everywhere. The area they arranged for the beach is very... More

Spent the weekend at Georgia Veterans State Park with our family camping. Wow what a beautiful setting. Staff does a great job keeping the park clean and orderly. Sunset over the lake was breathtaking.

We were guiding our european friends, so a stop in the Veteans State Park should not be missed. Since we our annual parking card, we are always proud that we could go to a place of this level. Well maintained, friendly staff and a wonderful place to relax on the lake or grounds. Most of our friends love this park... More

Camping, boating, walking or just enjoying the lake it all adds up to a very wonderful day. A sandwich shop or the café make this easy for the families and friends.

There is a lot to do in middle Georgia and this park is one of them. You will enjoy yourself here. Play a round of golf or take a train ride. There is something for everyone.

Fished the weekend on Lake Blackshear from the State Park. Wonderful informative staff. The place is immaculate!! Plenty of room to park. Boat ramps were first class. Parked at the marina and had lunch at the restaurant then back to fishing. Awesome State Park!!

Great campground, beautiful grounds, right on the lake! The one thing my husband was disappointed in was the little museum they have on site but it's probably the best they could do with their funding. I'd highly recommend for families, lots to go in the park, cabins and hotel rooms for rent in site and a beautiful golf course.

My family and I stayed 3 nights in the Lake Blackshear Resort located inside the Georgia Veterans State Park. We have enjoyed the bike rides, hiking trails, museum, & the beautiful scenery. Very clean, well maintained & employees are helpful.
