“Classic museum”

Georgia Veterans State Park
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Cordele
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Our family trip to GVSP was an interesting and educational visit. There was an inside museum with past war relics and uniforms from the different eras of war. The outdoor museum of vehicles and aircraft was an awesome sight. The park offers bicycles and canoes to rent. The park was wide open for frisbee and other forms of recreation and a large picnic area by the lake. A marina by the lake offers rental boats. The only bad note is the gnats were annoying, otherwise it's a really nice park.

Every time I visit Cordele, I go to GVSP. I love the many activities, golfing, fishing, the man made beach on the river, picnicking, the cabins, etc.

We chose this state park for our memorial day weekend because it was fairly close to home. What a surprise! This place is awesome! The camp sites are large, the place is massive, the lakes is 9000 acres, the museum was special, and the short line railroad was money well spent. This is one of the few places I'd go back to (I don't normally like to go to the same place twice) but it is surely a jewel.

Very nice state park. Great camping sites along the lake, with electrical hook-ups and water at each site(both tent and RV sites). Very clean bath facilities, with washer and dryer available. There is an area for model airplanes to be flown. Disc golf, playgrounds, and an area with vintage tanks and airplanes from past wars are displayed. Gorgeous lake with boat ramps and docks. Cabins are available. Picnic sites throughout the park. A golf course and hiking/bike trails are also there. There is a beach/swimming area at the lake. There is also a lodge with dining facilities. We have seen several weddings being held( behind the restaurant)-right by the lake. A very well-kept park with lots for the whole family to do. We love to boat and fish while camping here!
