Open and when I mean open space,all over the Park. Great for fishing Boating, Swimming and they have a great little Museum for the Veterans…. Outside plenty of Military Tanks and Airplanes to see throughout the use in our Military.
Like area and close but fishing at site is horrible because the grass and growth is too high
Cool place with all the planes but no picnic table!
Very nice and quiet. Camp ground hosts are very nice and friendly. Nice place for the family.
Georgia Veterans State Park sits next to Lake Blackshear and shares the lake front with a resort. There is a marina , condos and a golf course on resort side. On the Park side there is the much more desirable campground:)
There are plenty of options to choose from in the three camping “loops”. Some lakeside sites have direct access to the water and in camping area 1 you can get pretty close to the fishing pier. A lot of the sites are pull through , in area 3 all sites are pull through and several of the sites border one of the Nature trails. The primitive walk in tent sites are in area 3. There are two handicap accessible sites and two double sites for group camping(the other sites are close together so this just puts you on the same “pad”)There is shade but definitely more on some sites then others. Not a lot of privacy. It wasn’t real busy or noisy so the open layout wasn’t a major hang up for me. This is definitely more of a “organized”, well maintained, military feel campground. I didn’t get the State Park in the woods vibe at all :)
There are rental Cottages which overlook the water some with screen porches. There is a fishing pier behind Cottage one and two.
In addition there are boocoo recreation activities:
Disc golf (a little over grown)
Pioneer Group campsite
Aviation and Combat Arms equipment
Model airplane field
Outdoor exercise equipment along with an exercise trail
Large boat ramp
Small boat ramp
A beach with facilities and shaded picnic area
We only took the time to camp and hike but you could easily spend some time here and do something different every day. I’m unfamiliar with the area and wildlife so I kept the boys on short leashes when we walked in the woods , especially near the water. The trails were nice, somewhat maintained and there was old signage plus benches. Not my favorite this trip but nice enough.
located on boy scout slough really nice facility
Very clean and well maintained park. Bring or rent a kayak for water fun. Has natural spring called Blue Spring to explore both the land is private. Eat at the Grill or local restaurants the cove. Sheila
Great park for family fun. It offers a lake for boating & swimming, a beach for lounging, hiking, golf and Sam's Shortline Railroad tour. There are also restaurants/ bar & grill which during the summer offer concerts. They offer rv sites & pioneer type camping.
A pleasant clean camp. Definitely will return when in the area. Friendly staff and knowledge about the area.
I rent a little cabin and it was really nice. I usually camp with tents but with the Georgia heat and all the bugs I wasnt going to deal with it this time. I would recommend the same. The cost is fair and they are clean.
