Average stay

Site #52, full hookup site, slightly unlevel but generally a good site.

Park has a museum and war time tank and aircraft.  Large field where local airplane hobbyists come and fly their models.  Campground was quiet, and very dark at night.  We did see some wildlife roaming as we ventured out in to the park.  

The hosts did a good job of keeping the restrooms clean.  I don't recall seeing any park officials driving through the campground.

Campground is at the back of the park, so not a lot of outside traffic.  Fishing and boating, Restaurant and bar not busy at all.   

I will say it was pricey, $60/night

Group camping - great place!

We camped here with our Cub Scout Pack for the weekend. Loved the museum and outdoor aircrafts and tanks! There was a easy walking trail to and from the pioneer camp. The highlight was for sure the railroad that is right next to the camping area. The passenger train comes through twice a day and it so neat to see up close. Pioneer campsite is not well marked from the main road, but that may be on purpose.

Birthday bash at Lake Blackshear

Campsites #18-19

We stayed at these two campsites for a long birthday weekend. The sites were fairly level and backed up to one of the finger coves off this lake. That ended up having pros and cons… The bugs and gnats were bad in early September on several of the nights there. It have water, cable, 50/30 amp electric, fire ring and picnic table. The site were spacious and very clean. It was an on and off rainy trip and water did come through the site because the site was off an incline. It was a slight walk to the bathrooms and they were very clean although needed a bit of upgrading. The host came up to greet us and make sure all was good with our stay. We bought firewood for $5 a bundle of 5-6 piece. There was golfing and a large swimming pool at the resort that we did not use. You could also rent pontoon boats, kayaks and canoes to explore the lake. One drawback was no sewer hookups. So you have to allow an extra hour to dump and go. We did not like having to ration water usage during out trip. This was a one and done for us as the gnats were a real turnoff and no sewer hookups. So many other parks to explore.

Great family park

The gnats were pretty bad (September) but the park was fantastic. We stayed at the Pioneer Campground which actually had power, shelter and a shower block. Lots of activities to keep the family entertained, golf, swimming, the lake, war museum, a couple of restaurants as well.

Overall very happy with the place and the service of the staff.

Excellent!

Off-grid done right!

Love Lake Blackshear

The campground at Veteran’s is one of my favorites. They have sites on the water, which is where I stayed. Bathhouse is clean. Host were very friendly. Easy to fish here. Great place for kids as you can ride to different areas to fish of go the “beach” and let them swim in the lake. There are sites that are less desirable than others. Just depends on what you prefer.

Fun Family Campground

This campground is perfect for families. They have a playground and fishing. Kids can ride bikes and swim right at the bank near the campsites. Closer to the entrance to the park there is a veterans memorial.

Spacious Galore and Clean Grounds

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.

Ok

Like area and close but fishing at site is horrible because the grass and growth is too high

No picnic table!

Cool place with all the planes but no picnic table!
