There are 3 beautiful camping areas next to each other. Areas 1 & 2 have beautiful, back-in, water front sites and area 3 is wooded. You pick your site when you come in. The very narrow road is paved, but compromised by tree roots. Sites are packed sand/dirt for your unit, but the picnic table & grill areas are on pea gravel. Grass between sites is nicely mowed and trees are nicely trimmed. Gnats and ants are abundant, so be prepared. If you have a smaller boat & a waterfront sites, you can pull your boat ashore. Restrooms/showers are newer & spotless. The free WIFI did not work at all. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

-excellent Lakeside rv park/campground with many lakeside backin sites, and others that ate backin or pullthrus
-manuvering may be difficult for some longer units since trees border the lanes, but also provide a lot of shade during the hot months
-sites are mostly gravel base, with r/r tie edges, and elec, water, cable, and free Fast wifi(some offer 50a, ours had two 30a, a first for us)
-sites are mostly adequately spaced, though some have curiously close 'picnic' areas right into the neighboring site, strange.
-Overall a good place, if the weather is tempered(mostly hot and humid July and August especially) We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a first-come first-serve site selection, even with reservations. Come early, and you can also move to another site when it becomes available.

Check-in at the main entrance then select any open spot. On the first night we stayed in the upper area away from the water. The next day we were able to move to a spot right next to the water after the morning exodus. The outdoor display of military equipment was very interesting. The military museum was very small and lights weren't on in many areas, making it difficult to see several displays. Staff seemed generally indifferent, but the park itself is excellent. We also ate at the resort restaurant. The food was good, but the service was very slow with only our family and one other in the place. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Overnighting here was easy and relaxing. Seems to be a destination type of park, especially for families. The variety of activities invites campers to stay for a while. Sites range from tight lake front views to wide open camping away from the water. Fire ant mounds suggest that bugs could be a problem in warmer weather; gnats gathered in our adult beverages as we enjoyed the sundown. This park is definitely on our "leisurely visit" list. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tremendous amount of history to explore in this area. Stripling's General Store (almost at park entrance) is a wonderful old-fashioned grocery store and meat market.

Our GPS took us via the rear entrance so had no signs for registration station and ended in campground that was nearly full even though we had been told the day before that reservations were not needed. We unhooked toad and went to registration station as we were not to be on sites without being registered. Since, Georgia Parks are on a first come first serve basis which means no site specific even with registration. The staff are efficient but not friendly, and most sites are level and very spacious with the only 50 amp service in sites boarding the lake. All other sites are 30 amp and we found many electrical posts with broken/cracked receptacles. Utilities, however, were strong but the interior paved roads are suffering from tree root invasion and our motorhome duals didn't not enjoy,so beware especially campground 2. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here twice and simply loved it. The staff was very helpful. Great park for kids. Very peaceful and quiet and right on the lake. The water was 30ft from the trailer and we kept the RIB pulled up right next to the unit. Huge lake with plenty of places to buy bait and fishing gear. There is a restaurant at the hotel next to the campgrounds but it's expensive. Lake Blackshear has very good fishing. We will be going back in September for a week. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beware of the ANTS! The office nor the "Camp Hosts" told us about the horrible ant problem in the park. The next morning I woke to a parade of ants marching all over the top of my camper. We bought $50 worth of spray and traps. Left next day and still had a problem for 3 more days! We have been there before but in October. Great pull thru, view of lake, cable and internet. The ants just ruined it for us. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a couple of days. Gnats were terrible so we couldn't be outside like we wanted to be. Very pretty and clean park. Bathrooms were older but clean. Aircraft and tank display was very interesting to see. They have a large Marina and several boat ramps. Also available is an R/C aircraft flying field for your use. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park is a sprawling complex that includes a marina, RV & Tent sites and a couple of restaurants. The Lake side sites ( on Lake Blackshear ) are 50 Amp with water and the inland sites are 30 Amp plus water. We couldn’t find any sewers although our site had what appeared to have been a sewer connection in the past. Yes, when there is warm weather the gnats are present and annoying. One does have to look out for fire/biting ants. They have showers ( 2 male, 2 female per camping areas ( 3 areas & probably not adequate when they fill up )). The waterside sites are all back in and are level gravel and somewhat challenging to get into. They offer no wi-fi but our Verizon mi-fi worked just fine. It’s first come first serve and if you have a satellite dish, open sites are at a premium. The nearby golf course is excellent, challenging and after 2PM a bargain. Veterans price w/ cart $16.20 and three dollars extra for the senior rate. Reservations are now made directly with the park 229-276-2371, no longer through Reserve America – and book early. They do require a car pass and so the CG fee per night plus car pass was approximately 25.00 per day.. I’d play this course and use this campground again. A WalMart super store in Cordele is approximately 12 miles away and there are many small very interesting local stores ( Little Farmer’s Market, Leslie, GA and Striplings General Store at the park entrance) in the general area. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice park. We stayed here for a couple of nights and was very pleased. We stayed in section 3 which is mostly pull-through sites. All were pretty level. There is some lake side sites but you need to get there early on a Friday because its a first come first served. There is a beach area swim at your own risk. There is no life guard. Great place to ride bicycles. The park is a little spread out so the bicycles came in handy. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Gnats swarm thru the campground during the day, seem to disappear when the sun goes down. Sundown is when the rednecks come out cruising the shoreline drinking alcohol and using vulgar language. Around 10:00 PM a large party of drunks cranked up their party music and cussing, could be heard from one end of campground to the other. It took the Campground Host and Park Rangers almost an hour to quiet the group down. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park on Lake Blackshear. The sites are a little close but laid out nicely to allow a little privacy. There are a number of waterfront sites as well as a more wooded loop if that's your thing. Campground is situated on a cove which makes it nice for kayaking and fishing. Host was extremely helpful and friendly. The museum was at no additional fee and worth checking out. We will definitely return here. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

A real pleasant surprise! This is a large park with a convention center/restaurant/hotel, with a large lake, beautiful walkways, a small well done veterans war museum exhibit and an outdoor exhibit of WW2 aircraft including a B29,(how did they get that large plane there?) tanks and artillery pieces. There is a huge golf course. The campground is spacious with large gravel-dirt lake side sites, no brush clutter, large trees. Only negative I had was the bathhouse is dated and is in the middle of the campground with no walk ways to it from the surrounding roadway/campsites; excepting one handicapped site. Meaning you walk through lots of brown fallen leaves that can hid snakes and bugs. Things are spread out so a bike is great for getting about. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park and very clean, large sites with many pull throughs. Lake was beautiful this time of year with the fall colors all around. Lots of activities to do. I gave it a 9 for two reasons. 1. the park was full and they decided to close area # 3 and cram everyone in 1&2. 2. the park camp host acted like we were bothering him and was rude to my wife when we wanted to purchase wood from him. Other than that I would come back here again. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.
