“Riding in the middle of Georgia and found a great park”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were riding our Harley's in the middle of Georgia and found this very nice and educational veterans park along Lake Blackshear. There were several pieces of military hardware including tanks, planes, artillery and a Marine AmTrack. Further down the road was a nice grill with cold drinks and hot food at the Lake's Marina. I'm glad we made this un-planed stop.

“Great campground”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

There are lakeside campsites on the outer loop and on the inner loop sites are close to the lake. The boat ramp is at one end near the lodge. There is another loop across the road that is, in my opinion, much better. The sites are larger, there are huge grassy areas for walking & playing. It is also a quieter area, particularly in the morning when the fishermen are on the move in their boats. There are walking trails everywhere and a beach area. There is a marina for renting watercraft. This is a great bicycle park. Most roads are completely level and you can go from the campground to the lake to the visitor center and even out to the Sam Shortline rail station by bike. Due to the heat in South Georgia, we prefer this park in the fall.

“great historial war information”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

You have so many things you can do like: Boating, swimming, camping, cottages, live music on weekend, and family outtings.
I don't have anything I dislike like about the park but people need to respect others and what does not belong to them and obey the rules they have!
